I worked at Kwik Trip full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Fun and fast paced place to work; nice co-workers and managers.

Cons

While I agree in a "roll up your sleeves" work ethic, KT tends to take this to an extreme.

Advice to Management

You MUST spend more time in the individual stores. Even if frequent, the quick visits do not tell you the whole story of how a store is doing. A periodic whole day observing/working would give you invaluable insights into how to improve morale, productivity, and the bottom line.

    I have been working at Kwik Trip part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company promotes a friendly and pleasant workplace, music in the background in the store and playing for the guests at the fuel pumps is a definite plus. Kwik Trip shares 40% of it's profits with coworkers and has other unexpected benefits such as a months' paid vacation after 20 years of service. They go above and beyond what is commonplace in many areas. Kwik Trip was voted #1 convenience store in the country for the last 4 years running, and that says a lot for our company !!!

    Cons

    At times the shear volume of guests that visit the store can be overwhelming when there are tasks that must be completed. Trying to achieve a healthy balance of prompt and attentive guest service while still completing required tasks can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you're doing Mr. Zietlow ! The coworkers that are a part of your company are well served with the humbleness that your family exhibits towards them and the vision you have for Kwik Trip's continued growth and success.


  2. "An extremely unpleasant experience. Good while you look for something better."

    I worked at Kwik Trip full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Profit sharing, not much more.

    Cons

    Management, supervisors, flexibility, does not take federal ADA laws seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic goals for sales, realize people lie on the surveys and are not as happy as you think, take mental health seriously, stop having supervisors build people up only to tear them down later. Train your leaders in compassion and empathy. Do a better job with job reviews for employees.
