    Pros

    Salary is decent. Bonuses are good.

    Cons

    Speedway used to really look out for their store managers. Over time, as with most other companies, it became all about the bottom line. They really just stopped caring about their managers and expectations became ridiculous.

    Pros

    Speedway is a good place for people who enjoy working in a compact and fast-paced environment. Your fellow employees are always close by, and customer interactions are typically brief and polite.
    The company itself offers many benefits for full-time employees, and some for part-time employees. Some of the benefits for full-timers include 401k matching, access to health care plans through the company, and paid vacation time. All employees enjoy double holiday rate, education reimbursement, flexible scheduling, and company bonuses and incentives.

    Cons

    Some locations can be ridiculously busy compared to others, and the stores were not built with this in mind. This creates space issues, and the company is very reluctant to allow additional hours for the appropriate amount of staff to be scheduled. They want to keep their facilities very standardized, even if they aren't necessarily comparable.
    It's a 24-hour facility, so that in itself can cause problems. There always ends up being animosity between the 3 shifts, due to them not seeing each other, but being affected by each other's work.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure things are going according to procedure, and if they are not, honestly try to find a solution rather than assuming there is no fault in management.

    I worked at Speedway LLC (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very hands off which gives the responsibility that you would have in real life. Everyone is very helpful and is understanding. You get to experience all aspects of the business. You get great hours! What you do effects the company. You're decisions can have a big outcome of what happens in situations. present a project in front of region with a group of interns.

    Cons

    The majority of store managers do not like their job which makes it hard to work with them.

    Advice to Management

    Make it so the store managers life is not so stressful. I know they have very high expectations but when the are always unhappy and stressed it wears off on lower level employees. The success of the company lies within the store managers. If they are not happy and do not like what they do, the company will not be successful.

    Pros

    I liked the fast pace and the store was in a little area so you knew all your customers. The job was pretty easy and there was a lot to do to keep you busy. The hardest part was filling the coolers in the back. You got bonuses alot and the pay was weekly.

    Cons

    Hours sucked. Never got a weekend off because the store manager always took the weekend off so you had to be there when the manager wasn't. When I tried to ask for a weekend off i was told that weekends were the managers assigned days off and I could never have it off. When I didn't do the safe right (like put money in it right because there is a certain way you have to put it in) I would get yelled at instead of getting help with fixing it. Poor training it what I should say

    Advice to Management

    Shift leaders are one the hardest working employees in the store. They have to do the jobs that managers don't want to do. Let them take at least one weekend off a month and give them better training courses.

    Pros

    great benefits, fast advancement at store level

    Cons

    low salaries, no advancement for long term employees,

    Advice to Management

    Give ex wilco/hess employees a chance to move into other positions, rather than hiring from outside of the company. Otherwise we just cap out at GM at the store level.
