    I have been working at International Speedway full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Free coffee and soft drinks. Many hard working people that sacrifice everything to keep their jobs. Treated slightly better than slaves.

    Cons

    Very poor management, low pay, long hours, if your a friend of the owners family your job is safe otherwise they can fire you at anytime. I have seen several long term employee's fired this year already. They care about nothing in regards to their employee's well being. Horrible benefits package. They no longer give free race tickets to events. Over worked and very under paid. Everyone working here is always afraid of getting fired. Drug use is rampant, several high ranking members including board members are drug and alcohol abusers. Beware of this place it is poison.

    Advice to Management

    Drug test your employee's especially those working for Americrown 90% of them are hard core drug users. Treat the people that work for you as you would like to be treated. Stop wasteful spending of stock holders money.

    I have been working at International Speedway full-time

    Pros

    well its a job if nothing else is available

    Cons

    if you want a life this job is not for you. There is no work/Life balance. They expect you to devote all your time to this place. No advancement and unfair tactics used with employees being belittled and treated like a child. Management goes over the line with statements on your personal life.

    Advice to Management

    you need to wise up and realize that your workers are the backbone not the higher ups and friendships don't make a person qualified to do a job .

    I have been working at International Speedway full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free Tickets - occasional Travel. Got to learn a lot about NASCAR. The team leaders and the trainer care a ton about the overall success of the company.

    Cons

    The management team is cold and uncaring when it comes to the employees. One manager in particular would hold mistakes against you until you got fired or quit. The pay was unacceptably low considering what they ask you to do.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time at the call center to make sure your employees are treated with kindness not like children.
