    I worked at Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package. Company is growing by leaps and bounds and advancement opportunities are endless.

    Cons

    Not extremely friendly with women in upper management positions. Extremely particular about appearance.

    Advice to Management

    Update your uniform policy to fit the year 2019, stop pretending like this is still the 1900’s

    I have been working at Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Compromise on sch. Some good management . Pay not too bad.

    Cons

    Upper management has no backbone to do what is best for the store. Just because you have bodies does not mean you have people who will work.Makes the moral very poor.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your good employees and let them know. Let the ones who do not care go.stop worrying about turn over. Make the store a good fun and clean place to work. Then you will have people who care.

    I have been working at Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Getting vacation time very shortly after starting.

    Cons

    where do you start with this place? Racism, favoritism, if you can't speak the language...they treat you like crap, management treats the team members terribly if they are not part of their little clique. There is abuse of power here. It is disgusting. Team members have a very low moral. There is no recognition for a job well done. Always short staffed and still the expectations of team members constantly goes up. Scheduling...

    I worked at Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Loves shares, advancement opportunities not much else.

    Cons

    If you can last 7 years, which is a big if, you’ll get paid what you should have been paid all along. They use Loves shares as an excuse to underpay your annual salary. This company was great when I first stated, but since there’s been some upper management changes, the family culture is going away. Before, on business reviews, you might get chewed out, but you knew exactly where...

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the Love’s pledge. Stop preaching it to the stores and follow it from the corporate level. Don’t make goals like “eliminate mediocrity “ just to find a way to fire people. Pay the proven, reliable GMs what they are worth. Don’t dangle Love’s Shares as compensation. Most GMs won’t make it 7 years in the current climate, so pay them more. Add labor to the stores, since you keep piling stuff on the managers plate,...

    Pros

    There really is no pros. They promise you so many things and after working and Being promised a store they never delivered on that promise It is only a dog and pony show Employee morale is terrible. Turnover is excessive with no care to employees or their availability, schedules are modified without telling anyone. Schedules are posted way late. Unless you become a little pet you are treated like crap and you will...

    I have been working at Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The only Pro I can honestly give you is that this company sometimes provides employees with the opportunity to move up in the store setting. But once you do, your life is over.

    Cons

    Poor schedules. Poor pay. They treat employees like trash. In my opinion they do not care about people, whether employee or customer, only profit. Upper management shows no respect to employees, often resorting to profanity and demeaning, racist and sexist remarks. Turnover rate is through the roof, this is why. Not to mention, they have ruined the Speedco, Inc brand in less...

    Advice to Management

    You are very unprofessional. You should learn to value your employees. You should never treat teammates like an expendable commodity.

    Love's has good benefits, pay, profit share up to 2%. Advancement opportunities are great as this is a very fast growing company.

    Cons

    My biggest con is that some upper management treat the lower management bad. They will come to your store once per quarter and absolutely rip you a part. you take a thirty minute van ride with them back to your store where some of them will scream and cuss you out the whole time then on some occasions walk in and fire part of your team because they didn't heat their egg on their...

    Pros

    Decent pay, flexible scheduling, always hours.

    Cons

    Upper management is hard on store management, which in turn puts a lot of strain on shift leads & cashiers. BUT Love’s does do a great job of taking care of their employees when at all possible.

    Advice to Management

    It isn’t your cashiers fault that your supervisor is mad at you.
