    Pros

    Part time isn’t bad, but you MUST have a good midwestern work ethic.

    Company is getting too big.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to some of your old ways stop expanding so much, and quit hiring incompetent people into management.

    I have been working at Kwik Trip part-time

    Pros

    Good starting pay, yearly bonus, never a dull moment, fast paced.

    Cons

    Never enough help , District Leaders have their "pets" in the store management arenas and most of the "pets" are the managers who seem to be the least qualified to deal with co-workers and duties at the stores.

    Advice to Management

    If you have a poor Store Leader or ASL don't just move them to another store to make another staff miserable, get rid of them. And HR needs to quit telling co-workers who have problems in their stores to work it out with the Store Leader, because most of the time , the SL IS the problem.

    I worked at Kwik Trip part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and coworkers are good. Lots of hours

    Cons

    It is a pain to request off. First shift is supposed to get off at 5:30 but is always understaffed so usually you get off at 7pm which makes it a 12 hour shift. Too much overtime which wears workers out when they work 4 days in a row. Work is extremely physically demanding.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people

    I worked at Kwik Trip full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, has a lot of benefit options, room for advancement.

    Cons

    Over worked at retail level with very little hours, very high expectations without enough labor, senior leadership plays favorites, company growing so fast its completely lost its culture and no longer cares about it's people, assistant leaders are making just as much as a store leader now days which give the asls no incentive to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites, listen to your people at retail their the ones working their tails off and need more labor or be more understanding when not everything gets done. Fight for a decent increase for the store leaders and stop micromanaging because you dont know what it's like now days since the company has grown so much.

    Pros

    Family owned, annual bonus, operational transparency with all employees, very community focused company.

    Cons

    Most stores operate 24/7/365... so the scheduling can be tricky, and flexibility is expected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! You should be proud of the company you are running. It was truly a pleasure working at KT.
