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

    Pros

    Racetrac is a strong company with great benefits. They maintain a great level of customer satisfaction, while respecting their employees and offering upward mobility.

    Cons

    There are no cons that I can offer as of this time. What you bring to the company is what will be offered back.

    Advice to Management

    Please maintain the high quality of guest interaction. When offering development to employees, search for what unique qualities they have to offer.

    I have been working at RaceTrac Petroleum full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have spent the entirety of my professional career at RaceTrac and it is truly a place that I feel at home. During my time with RaceTrac I have had the opportunity to work on multiple teams across different parts of the organization. What has kept me at RaceTrac for over 10 years now is my belief that the organization truly cares about its employees and their success and development. The culture is one of openness and I feel empowered to share my knowledge and opinions and have frank discussions with my leaders. Whenever I have expressed a concern or wanted to pursue a new project I have been encouraged and supported. As an employee with young children I also feel that I have the freedom to balance my work and home lives.
    If I have ever needed to either work from home or take time off to deal with a personal issue it has never been a big deal. Overall, I am very happy at RaceTrac and would encourage others to consider making it their home too.

    Cons

    Pay at RaceTrac is reasonably competitive for new hires, but for those of us who have a certain amount of tenure it can at times feel like you are being left behind when it comes to compensation increases. It can be demoralizing when you see that you could make a significant amount more in both pay and bonuses by switching companies, but truly love where you are at. I would encourage leaders to take more seriously what other organization are offering both in terms of salaries and bonuses when preparing for compensation decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make improvements in the decision making process at RaceTrac. Things have greatly improved from where they used to be, but there are still opportunities to make the process more effective and transparent. Implementation of the DAI framework has been a step in the right direction, but it is not currently utilized consistently across the organization. There needs to be more of a push to educate all employees on how DAI works and leaders should be held accountable to utilizing it correctly.

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

    Pros

    From the moment I did my phone screening to the moment I sat at my new desk, the employees at RaceTrac really showcased their culture. They are very welcoming and they have a relaxed open space environment. I received all the help I could ask for while transitioning into my new role. This is my third week and I'm sure I've made the right decision.

    Cons

    Some people may not like the open space environment but I think it's great.

    I worked at RaceTrac Petroleum full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Schedule was easy to get days off

    Cons

    At times the hours would be cut and others youd end up working doubles with only 2 people running an entire store. Solid mix of inexperienced and overworked managers

    New hires have got to be more familiar on the resgitere once they start at their home store
