Best Places to Work: 2018 (#64)
I have been working at Kwik Trip part-time
Very flexible company going in the right direction. Pay is great and the company really cares about its employees.
None in particular come to mind.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kwik Trip (Dubuque, IA) in March 2018.
I received an email from a recruiter, and raised some questions in the email I wrote in reply. The recruiter then called me to address my questions, and, following this informal discussion, I applied online. A few days after my application was submitted, I received a call from the recruiter to do a more official phone interview. I also received an email from him about benefits, job description, and dress code.
After this phone interview, I was invited to participate in an in-store interview with the same recruiter. After accepting the invitation, I was sent an email link to gather my references. I had 24 hours to collect names and email addresses of a minimum of 5 people (3 current or previous bosses). The references, in turn, had to submit a short 2 minute survey about me.
The in-person interview was approximately 2 hours long, and detailed past work experiences. All of the questions where situational questions (tell me about a time when...). The recruiter was fully transparent and let me know about the interview process and what they were looking for. I was told that if I was selected to continue, it would be a MINIMUM of 2 more in-person interviews. Keep in mind, this was my 2nd official interview already, and 3rd conversation with this same recruiter.
I was told that I would receive notification either way whether I would be asked to continue the process. I did receive an email confirming that I had not been selected to continue. The recruiter told me during the interview that for every 21 people that apply, they only hire 1 person, so it's a pretty through and rigorous process. I was really disappointed because the recruiter really sold me on the company and I really enjoyed the interview process up to that point.
