    I worked at Kwik Trip full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Kwik Trip, Inc. has a great Owner, Don Zietlow. I love the fact that the company shares 40% of its profits with the employees. It gives them a sense of ownership and ultimately makes everyone happier and more productive.

    Cons

    Like all retail work, there is no fast way to management no matter how hard you work. It isn't so much if you are going to move up, it is about how long it is going to take.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your eyes open for exceptional talent.

    I worked at Kwik Trip (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Bonus, $25 gift card on birthday, coworkers are talented, cream of the crop in their respective specialties. Good place to start. Onsite health facility is convenient.

    Cons

    The hours are long in IT. Do not expect to have much work/life balance if you take a job here. There is almost no opportunity for continuing education, unless you do it on your own time...except that time is usually taken up on special projects that require very long work days. Very little upward mobility in this part of the business. Get experience if you need it then look for someplace with better work life balance. The vacation/sick time is not very good for this profession. There is no relocation assistance given. The health insurance isn't very good either. There are holes in the self managed insurance, and if you fall into one of those areas you will owe a lot of money out of pocket.

    Advice to Management

    The management for this area is a group who firmly believes in the old boys club. You hire cream of the crop people, let them do their jobs and empower them to make decisions.

    Pros

    I was with Kwik Trip for over 8 years before moving to a state where Kwik Trip is not located. I have nothing bad to say about the company and wish they were located here so I could continue working for them.

    Cons

    I really have nothing bad to say about Kwik Trip. The benefits and people are great. Keep up the great work
