    I worked at Kwik Trip full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay.
    Year end bonus.

    Cons

    The stores are not allowed enough hours to run a store the way the company mission statement expects them to be run. Store leaders have good hours, but ASL positions get abused with crappy hours, working all the weekends, and unrealistic expectations put on you. They push ethics in training, but they fall short there. Upper management does not pay attention to what goes on in the stores, so nothing gets done when there is problems. The company puts out a duty list that takes more then 8 hours for 1 co-worker to do ( which is so unrealistic), but they expect you to complete that list every shift or you could be wrote up, on top of this list they only work 2 co-workers on the floor per shift and you have to run up to the register every time more then 2 people are in line, which is almost always. Besides all of this the insurance is terrible, you only get a ten minute break per shift, and most of the time you get interrupted during that. They don't like to promote within or let part time coworkers go full time, which hurts the company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the store needs, and the amount of floor coverage needed to keep a store running efficiently, instead of burning out your good co-workers.
