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

Pros

A job as a sales associate will certainly help you gather the knowledge and skills about customer service and auditing. If you complete a college education while employed with K&G then you will have a good opportunity for a corporate position.

Cons

The pay is low, no benefits, no breaks, constantly busy (if your located in the city) no vacation time for non-management positions, most of the time they do try to save money by staying under-employed which means longer working hours, and since K&G is one of the few companies that do not force customers to pre-pay for gasoline, you will be asked to keep a a constant eye to make sure no one steals gas...

Advice to Management

Switch to pre-pay only, that way no one will steal gas and you can use the extra money that you will gain from this and give your employees a well deserved raise... or at least offer basic health benefits. Also maybe close down all your stores during major holidays, most of your employees do have families and those who do need gas can pay at the pump. Finally, offer some vacation time. I strongly believe that implementing these suggested idea's would effectively and efficiently boost sales and most importantly, employee morale. Therefore making K&G an even better company than what it is now.

    Pros

    It is a good company to start off with and they do look after you . The movement within the company is also possible may it be on the retail side or the corporate side.

    Cons

    If you work in a small city they going higher up will be pretty diffcult as sometimes it looks like the person above you will never leave his job.

    Advice to Management

    Try to ask around and they try to keep your eyes open for opportunities as they are slim so when they come just go for them quick.

    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.
