Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores – Why Work For Us?


Clean Places, Friendly Faces. It’s been a guiding principle at Love’s for more than 50 years, and it’s leading us into the future. We’re passionate about serving Customers with clean, modern facilities stocked with plenty of fuel, food and supplies.

Love’s has two primary kinds of stores. Our ‘Country Stores’ are fueling stations with a convenience store attached. The larger Love’s Travel Stops are located on interstate highways and offer additional amenities such as food from restaurant chains such as Subway, Arby’s and Carl’s Jr., trucking supplies, showers and RV dump stations.

Love's has been at the forefront of the convenience store and travel center industry for half a century. We were among the first to offer self-serve gasoline and groceries at the same time. We led the way on fresh deli sandwiches, quick-service restaurants and gift and novelty items, too.

And we’re searching for new ways to serve drivers through innovations such as our Truck Tire Care centers with roadside assistance service and getting drivers paid for their freight bills through our freight factoring group: Love's Financial.

Love’s was founded on the values of integrity, customer focus, strong work ethic, innovation and perseverance. Tom Love displayed all of these as he built Love’s from the ground up – from one small filling station in western Oklahoma in 1964 to more than 460 Love’s locations coast to coast. These core values are the keys to our success. But Tom didn’t do it by himself.

He surrounded himself with visionary team members who embodied the same set of values. Today, we are looking for these in every person we hire. No matter what job you do for Love’s, your commitment to integrity, customer focus, strong work ethic, innovation and perseverance will not only continue our legacy of growth, it will also ensure your successful career. Do you have what it takes?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores.

    Interview

    It mostly comprised of asking to tell them about my life from highschool on. While telling my story the GM was really engaged and showed genuine interrest not just in professional aspects but in me. This was the first sign that loves treats their employees as a genuine family. We watch out for eachother. The interview felt more like a friendly conversation than business. I have qualifications that i could use to sell myself to a higher starting wage and i feel loves genuinely wants us to move up and be paid what we deserve.
