    I have been working at RaceTrac Petroleum full-time

    Pros

    Environment
    Some benefits
    Opportunities
    Co workers

    Cons

    Managers only receive bonuses while Associates do a lot of hard work in the store. There are no pay raises. Company does not give employees a legal break. We have to stand in the back to eat out food. Recently the rules were changed to 15 minutes max and that is 1 time out of a 8-9 hour shift of complete standing. This company is wonderful to work for but I honestly feel as if they could do better when it comes to the pay and breaks. The pay is decent but as I stated before it is unfair to not give your associates at least a small bonus. We work very hard. The 15min “eating period” is ridiculous out of a 8-9 hour shift. If RaceTrac took the opportunity to be “employee focused “ instead of only “guest focused “ they wouldn’t have so many people quit.

    I have been working at RaceTrac Petroleum full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay
    Monthly bonus based on store margin
    Paid vacation/sick time after working for a year
    Co workers are fun to work with usually

    Cons

    Health insurance deductible is high/benefits suck
    48 hour work week
    Rules change daily
    Don’t stick to “core values”
    GM shows favoritism to morning shift
    High stress
    Policies change
    Trying to be something they’re not, making employees work like hell to appear to be the perfect gas station.
    OS and DS don’t care about employees
    Dangerous (theft, needles in trash, guests under the influence can be rude and unruly)

    Advice to Management

    Come work for the store for like a month, see what we go through. Stop trying to be more than a gas station. Remember your core values, stop favoritism and stop working everyone to death! Mental breakdowns keep happening and people are too stressed out. Turnover rate is high due to stress.
