    I worked at Kum & Go full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly environment, the customers are great. Upper management is great if you're in the right district. I learned a lot as a manager at KG. I wouldn't mind doing it again.

    Cons

    High turn over rate and due to this sometimes you are working 14+ consecutive days which makes for low productivity and employees getting burned out quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Close on Christmas day. Offer realistic number goals for management. Offer better pay for management postions at larger stores.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kum & Go (Colorado Springs, CO) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was then invited to meet for an in-person interview at a local coffee shop. The two general managers were very fond of me and within the hour a was sent to the store they wanted me to work at where I met the store manager for another in-person interview. However, this particular "gentleman" did not care for me one bit. Less than an hour later I received a rejection form letter.
