If you get stuck with bad leadership at the store level, it's very hard to do anything about it1

I enjoyed my time at Kwik Trip due to the relatively fun atmosphere and positive interactions with coworkers. However, I acknowledge that the work environment can vary significantly depending on the store and its leadership.
I found it challenging that, as a part-time employee, there were no guaranteed minimum hours. The inconsistency in my weekly schedule, with some weeks having substantial hours and others only offering one or two days of work, was difficult to navigate. Additionally, there were times when the workplace culture felt intense and almost cult-like. While I appreciate the company and my role, I prefer a healthy work-life balance and did not want my job to consume every aspect of my life.2

Free fruit? They tell you what you want to hear.
Oh so many things, where to start? Overworked, underpaid all in the name of “making a difference in people’s lives” only the cost for it is YOUR life. Year end bonus is not all they say it is. Ten keep you employed by dangling this bonus in front of you but you only receive it if you’re employed until after the day it posts in your pay stubs. They talk nice to your face but are extremely ruthless snd petty if you’re not drinking up the koolaid they are serving. They are a cult like business and drill into you how amazing they are and how lucky you’ve been “chosen” to work there. In reality they use and abuse you until you have nothing left to give. If you resign, give ample notice they trash you to everyone in your district and say you couldn’t cut it. I went out with one of the highest leadership feedback surveys given by my team and made their excellence club by exceeding goals in multiple categories, but I resigned to go to a competitor and the vindictiveness and hatred spewed from the top down.

Work life balance, good management
Very low pay. I make significantly less than others I know with fully remote jobs and same work experience as I PTO is not great for new employees. This would be significantly better if there were more time off around the holidays. With such poor pay, benefits should be better. Horrible probationary period. You aren’t allowed to take any PTO for the first 3 months. I had to work on holidays to get time off for necessary life events. This was extremely inconvenient for me. This company is incredibly behind the times and the IT department is mess. Little quality control is done and software is outdated. Office is INCREDIBLY crowded. Cubicles are small and coworkers are LOUD. Be prepared to need soundproof headphones. There are some incredibly rude/creepy men in this office. Be ware if you are a woman. A picture of your face will be sent to your department with a description of yourself. While most people are friendly, I’ve had some uncomfortable experiences with coworkers. Ladies, I would not work in store engineering, IT, or network services. Little room to grow. I do not expect a promotion ever. Raises are insignificant as well. Hiring process is lackluster. Some new hires have little problem solving skills and will depend on you to complete basic tasks. There should be a formal skill assessment so lazy coworkers do not push their work onto you.1

Decent pay for what you do. 40% profit sharing bonus.
Tasks and the job at hand can become mundane, boring, and dirty at times. Not recommended if you don't like interacting with people. Need to work well with others and have patience for one another and customers. 98% of customers are considerate and patient, but the other 1/50 can ruin your day at times. If you don't like interacting with people that much, one can sometimes request working in the kitchen exclusively, or stocking. Depends based on store demands and management.

Competitive wages, great benefits, new technology that makes tasks easier (new locations mostly)
Kwik Trip treats its employees like family, however, there can be a lot of emotional manipulation and SLs will either make or break your experience. At my store, there was a constant feeling of not being good enough - we were given so many tasks that they became impossible to finish unless we stopped serving our customers. In my case, I was coaching other new-hires (same paygrade) on tasks, and then getting an earful at the end for not doing everything. Your hours of availability won't be respected and you will be reviewed for how often you cover your coworker's shifts. For my coworkers, something I often saw was they would become the SL's new "favorite" until a couple months later when they decide to start cracking the whip again and writing them up for tiny mistakes. It was very manipulative. Eventually, I told myself $15/hr wasn't enough to keep subjecting myself to this.3

Profit sharing, Depending on the store most people care about you. If you show up and work most of the time they are willing to work with you when things hit the fan. Opportunities to move up are good.
It's a retail company. You have to work and work hard. You can get really poorly run stores (ive worked for a few and some are better than others.) It can sometimes become a bit cliquey depending on store.

The company really does think about its employee, You get a free piece of fruit with each shift, all the coffee, fountain drinks, and tea you can drink in a shift. 50% off lunch items made by Kwik trip. Profit sharing, money to buy uniform, mental health help, and much more.
Management is atrocious. One leader stole my wallet for an entire shift to try and make a point about me leaving my purse on the counter, and another screamed at me for not finishing a task the night before that I had come in early to finish. Both leaders only work a max of 3 nights a week but get pissed when you don't take their advice. Another Leader comes in every morning screaming and yelling and throwing stuff around, being extremely rude to everyone, she made a new hire quit within his first week. A leader from a different store transferred to ours and got in my face about a trifling matter and made a big deal about it for the rest of the night as well as spewed racist commentary to another. I have spoken to the management above them and nothing has been changed.2Kwik Trip Response3mo
