    I have been working at Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    When I started with this company in Texas, I ended up moving due to illness in the family. Love's was more than willing to assist me in finding a location that I can transfer to to be closer to my family. And when I ended up transferring again, they never saw me as a bother but as a valuable person and helped me relocated again. They have treated me like family with the 5+ years I have been with them.

    Cons

    There is only one.
    Every manager is different, they run their stores differently. Some will have set schedules while others will put you on a sporadic schedule. So depending where you go, you may get a set schedule or not.

    Advice to Management

    Always treat your team member with respect and make them feel appreciated, and they will give that to the customer 10 fold.

    Pros

    The Love family takes very good care of their employees. Generous benefits, including profit sharing for a great many employees in "difference making" positions within the company. Very fast growth over the past 5 years and no signs of slowing anytime soon.

    Cons

    Salary is perhaps a bit low for comparable positions in the region, but I consider that to be at least partially offset by the strong benefits package.

    Advice to Management

    If you're not doing so already, start looking into ways to deliver compressed natural gas and other alternative fuels at the company's many outlets around the country right away. When petroleum fuel prices skyrocket again I don't want my job and the company to be at risk.

    Pros

    Golden Heart Awards, Affordable Benefits, Employee Assistance Program, Guidance Resources, Paid Vacations, Fair wages. CMN activities are fun.

    It has its days like any other job but because of customers. Not coworkers. Don't really have much time for college or anything like I'd like.

    Pros

    Great Pay, Insurance, and Advancement opportunities!

    Cons

    Difficulty in finding great help. Some people just want a paycheck, not a job. The biggest thing i would say is that we never closed! Being a truckstop I understand...but being in management I was there EVERY holiday!
