    Pros

    great benefits, pay, HR get-togethers and team building events

    Cons

    biggest con- turnover! as a store manager you are required to cover call offs

    Advice to Management

    it's not all up to management. the only people who apply are young adults who do not care and result in high turnover.

    I have been working at RaceTrac Petroleum full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly atmosphere, fair pay, easy to move up if you work hard. Free drinks, reduced price food, also offer health insurance if you work full time. Also lots of friendly regular customers. Managers earn a monthly bonus on top of hourly pay, two weeks paid vacation once you work there a year.

    Cons

    Hard work on your feet all day, sometimes dealing with rude customers. You don't get proper lunch breaks

    Advice to Management

    Mainly, keep doing what you are doing. Racetrac seems to be run fairly from my perspective. Associates are paid more than a lot of cashier-type jobs, and moving up to management isn't too difficult if you work hard and have the right attitude. Just keep listening to your workforce and don't lose touch!

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

    Pros

    RaceTrac’s open environment truly lends itself to a personal and collaborative culture. At any given time, I know that I can approach a leader for guidance or a peer for a quick question, and people are consistently kind and helpful.

    The company and team events also instill a feeling of appreciation and inclusion.

    Cons

    There isn't enough consistency among all teams and departments, in regards to development opportunities and work/life balance. Some groups are excellent at growing their employees, while others do not prioritize it as well. RaceTrac is also known for developing employees who take ownership in driving their own career, but you must be very direct and assertive.

    Additionally, some groups afford their employees flexibility options that aren't offered across the board.

    I worked at RaceTrac Petroleum full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was a job with a small pay check

    Cons

    Insurance was high with little coverage. People were not that friendly unless you were in your 20's ! They do NOT pay some of their employees well enough for the amount of work they have to do and some employees are paid way to much for what they don't do but have a title...

    Pros

    Decent benefits friendly people company outings free coffee and soda. Some departments seem to have their stuff together. Seems like you can grow and move if your liked and in the right place at the right time.

    Cons

    FSSD training is short only four weeks after that don't ask any questions or be prepared to get judged HARSHLY by people who have been doing that job for years .Training NOT the trainer needs to be revamped. Petty and high school environment at times.

    Advice to Management

    Growing volume and a antiquated approach to handling work orders aren't a good mix and that will be your downfall at some point.
