I have been working at RaceTrac Petroleum full-time (More than a year)

Pros

moderate room for advancement, decent starting wage, networking opportunities interacting with the public.
Given the right attitude, and perhaps marginal experience. A person with only a high school level education can potentially have a career without prior advance level training or education. Medical and Dental also aren't un reasonably priced, along with discount perks with racetrack affiliated companies.

Cons

workplace politics can be hard or SEEMINGLY impossible to overcome. Promotion within company has no real structure.Giving no guarantee of advancement. Is a fast paced, labor oriented workplace i.e. stand up job without a break guaranteed to you.

Advice to Management

Develop a better system to reward work results, ethic, and productivity. Rather than just who has preference from a given store manager when possible promotional opportunities arise . The 70'30 policy with employee staffing is a serious burden placed on the crew for each given shift. In short you've now demanded more productivity, with no additional or possibly less compensation for such. Can kind of wear on people whom may feel there work load can be exasperated given whom they work with in a given day.

    I have been working at RaceTrac Petroleum full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Career opportunities are great. Easy to climb up the ladder quickly. Great work environment relatively free of politics.

    Cons

    PTO isn't great, constant growing pains, outdated [software] systems can make work difficult at times. Even with this cons... it's an excellent place to work. I'd recommend working at RaceTrac to anyone.
