    I worked at International Speedway part-time

    Pros

    NONE, I have nothing good to say about this company; I wanted so much to love working for such an iconic business but that did not happen.

    Cons

    I am a very hardworking, honest college educated woman who decided to work for the speedway during the races. I was hired as a low level manager and worked 3 times before I had an issue. We were told if we needed a day off to give a 2 week notice. I gave over a 2 week notice to take off for the Daytona 500. We were never told if we could not work that race we would be fired. Again, only told to give a 2 week notice. After that race, those of us who did not work it were scolded for missing the biggest race of the year. I stopped getting contacted about future races and when I tried rescheduling myself for other races and I never get contacted back. I called and emailed my manager Dan Parsons and I even called his manager several times only to be ignored.

    Advice to Management

    We are working there only as needed. A lot of us have regular jobs we have to work around. That should be understood. Not everyone is a retiree who can work every race unlimited. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!

    If you can afford to spend $400 million on a renovation you can afford to pay your employees more. $8-$9/hour, standing on concrete all day for 10-12 hours minimum. That is HORRIBLE!!!

    Pros

    free lunch on select days

    Cons

    the pay could be better. and the commission structure is a little off, you have to have a certain amount of call volume to sales ratio, just to get paid comission

    Advice to Management

    nothing i say will help.

    I worked at International Speedway full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It helped me move up fast within the company. Money was OK. People who you worked with were generally friendly.

    Cons

    Didn't treat their workers fairly and made them all feel worthless. Nothing was never good enough because they constantly changed everything all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Dont give up on your workers especially after they have proven to you over and over again that they are doing their best and giving you their all and don't always trust what you hear from fellow managers

    Great experience overall. You learn as you go and it is truly the best hands on experience you can get.

    Hours are long but you are constantly on the go so time flies by!

    I have been working at International Speedway full-time

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, opportunities to move up and around within the company, Florida weather is great, beautiful office building, nice people

    Cons

    Significant raises can be hard to come by, Daytona Beach is not a great place to live, but there are other cool towns within a commutable distance

    Advice to Management

    Since you invest so much in developing strong talent, you must recognize that improvement with salary increases so we don't continue to lose great employees to competitors

    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.
