    Pros

    Provided with company care and expense account. Lodging, when in reason, during travel was not questioned. Hampton, holiday inn express, was the usual accommodations. Geographically diverse and allowed for relocation if you were interested.

    Cons

    While being told need to tighten expenses Locations literally not being allowed to buy toilet tissue. Millions of dollars being paid to keep executives from quiting.

    Advice to Management

    Change was inevitable. Can't speak to current situation as the company has been purchased by circle k. I have heard good things about the circle k company.

    Pros

    I have been working at The Pantry full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some people really care about doing good work. Once found, good work can be pushed through the system. Some departments are stacked with good talent as well. My department was one of them. My manager and director were fantastic hard working people willing to do what it takes to help out. Random merchandising perks are a plus.

    Cons

    Slackers are allowed to stick around instead of being fired. Some VPs have no clue about the work their department actually handles. This creates a disconnect between the office workers and Executive Leadership Team. Overall communication is poorly managed.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with a direction for more than 6 months. Change takes time. Provide the correct tools workers.
