    I have been working at Speedway LLC full-time

    Pros

    My time at Speedway thus far has been more exceptional than I ever thought It would be. I have made countless connections in multiple industries that I would never have made had I not started with the company. Speedway truly is focused on the retention of its employees and I have never seen a company with the amount of internal growth opportunities that I have seen starting at the store level. I would recommend Speedway to anyone and/or everyone that I come across seeking challenging and rewarding work.

    Cons

    If I had to specify a con at Speedway, it would be retention of employees at a store level. I think that there are a lot of different plans that could be implemented to increase retention of store level employees as well as the recruitment of qualified candidates that could completely change what the company is lacking.

    Pros

    Quick advancement from Co-Manager to GM if an opening becomes available and you have proven to can manage a store
    Full time workers can get all the hours you want

    Cons

    Lack of support from DM
    Turnover affects all levels of this company- even the DM's
    Bonus structure is attached to the store inspection where they nit-pick about the dust in your back freezer and then fail your store
    Not getting paid enough to counsel employees, deal with angry customers, interview/hire employees, on top of all other store responsibilities
    Employees constantly call the GM at all hours to deal with customer/store problems

    Advice to Management

    Fix the bonus structure

    Advice to Management

    Increase Benefits, Hours and most important Pay and pay raises.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, management actually works alongside employees and the place is clean

    Cons

    CANDY QUOTA! I’m paid $9.05 and hour, I have an over abundance of chores to do, and then to make the day more demeaning and pathetic I have to try everything to sell 10 candy bars off the counter racks, if people want candy they will pull of the shelf themselves to make this all even more pathetic I am expected to buy the missing candy from my quota out of my $9.05 an hour job that I’m lucky to get 25 hours from!!!!?????!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop your candy quota crap! Your customer base doesn’t appreciate being hackled by ya workers over candy! And it makes me feel like crap to do this!
