    I have been working at Speedy Stop full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I am really sorry I left this wonderful place. Every one was really nice and the girls were smoking hot.

    Cons

    The dress code was too restrictive. The break room had a camera in it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the camera out of the break room

    Terrible Management Team

    I worked at Speedy Stop

    Pros

    They offer a good benefit package

    Cons

    The store I worked had 3 managers in 18 months. The DM was unfriendly and condescending at times. The employee turnover was way too high partially because of the constant management turn over with resulting low morale!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find new mid level managers.

    Overall Working for Speedy Stop is a positive experience . Although, there are many obstacles to triumph over.

    I worked at Speedy Stop full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The best reason was the finances. It was fair pay for a fair amount of work.

    Cons

    Even though, Speedy Stop promises oppurtunity in employment and advancement in the company there isn't. There is a close knitted upper management group that underhandedly bullies and undermines ones assets that they provide for the company. " If you don't fit in you don't get in."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am not in any form as experienced as the human resources department personnel is but may I ask ; for the future of the company, may be could you do more analyzing on the situations brought to attention? Do we follow a process of elimination and is it thorough? If Speedy Stop is a company with a promise of future for their employees then why isn't th ere a chancet to retrain or restart?

    Pros

    In over all meeting the customers was the best part of this job. Made lots of friends that keep coming back day after day.

    Cons

    It was a good job. But when u have coworkers who thought it was a play ground and didn't want to do work this job got to be a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I did get along with my manager.

    I have been working at Speedy Stop part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Above minimum wage pay for starting Customer Service Representative.
    -Potential to move up in the company
    -Decent benefits

    Cons

    -Pay is too low for the amount of work required. I make $8.50 an hour and I am basically on-call 24/7. I work graveyards 4+ nights a week, and have to work weekends and holidays. I am not compensated for any of these factors. You only receive extra pay for working Christmas day and Thanksgiving. And even then its only time and a half.
    -I get called in on days off to work at other locations, yet am punished if I hit overtime.
    -There is no fixed schedule, we normally find out what our week's work schedule is the day before a new week starts. This causes many problems. Additionally, the 2 people at my store that work the graveyard shift also work morning and day shifts. This week I've worked 10pm-6am, 6am-2pm, 2pm-11pm, and 10pm-8am. This obviously causes problems with sleeping, as I'm not able to develop any kind of regular sleep schedule.
    -No breaks at all, even during long shifts. I work 8, 9, and 10-hour shifts every week. I have worked 12, 13, 14, and 16 hour shifts before. Even during these long shifts, I get 0 breaks and am not allowed to sit down AT ALL. You can eat when there are no customers in the store, but you have to make it fast.
    -Many, many benefits were removed from the previous owner of the store I work at.
    -Management has shown itself to be somewhat incompetent, punishing employees when they can't figure out what happened.
    -If you work more than 32 hours a week on average, you're supposed to be considered full time. However, myself and a few of my coworkers work an average of 38-39.5 hours a week and are considered part time, and are therefore paid less and receive less benefits overall. However, this might be because we haven't quite been working there for 1 year yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider making things easier for the people working night shifts, maybe pay night shifts a flat amount extra per hour, as other companies do. A bit of schedule consistency would go a long way, as well.
