Lead Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Clayton, NC – December 27, 2015
Unless they've changed things, be prepared to work. Stocking coolers, switching coffee, checking pumps, running lottery. Unless you are good a mulit-tasking you don't need to work in a convenience store.
Benefits, typically the manager will work with you.
We were bought out by Circle K, but before that, Kangaroo was an awesome company to work for. I loved being part of the team, and the C-store environment always kept me on my toes. If you like a lot of tasks, always being busy, and a sense of working independently, this is a great career!
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Brandon, MS – June 7, 2016
I was not trained real good once I came to this store. Liked the customers that came into the store. The long hours and working overnight was hard. For the paper work I had learned only maybe 3 weeks before the store manager and assisting manager went on vacation together.
Working here was very different for me. I enjoyed working with the customers and I learned how to mange my time and being able to multi-task. My co-workers where more so for themselves and not about working as a team. My supervisor was very helpful. The hardest part was working alone late at night by myself with no help and that was one of the busiest part of the day.
Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – November 3, 2016
Customers was were nice. Manager was flexible with schedule. I learned how to run the register in a professional manner. The hardest part of the job was when other employee quit and we had to all help out with the schedules.
It was an pretty decent place to work until new management took over
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – February 18, 2016
Kangaroo had a pretty nice work environment for the most part. Customers were friendly and there weren't too many issues with stealing. Management in the beginning was wonderful; they made the work environment fun and made me feel like family. Although the pay was less the great, the people is what made it a good place to work at. However after a change in management, the environment shifted to a more rigid pace. This in turn caused stress levels to rise and the work environment became overbearing.
In the beginning the work environment felt like family and fun, we did our jobs well and enjoyed it.
The change in management brought in a more rigid system and the pay was only minimum wage, so the high stress and low pay there was no equity in working there any longer.
production line worker (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 18, 2015
work life / ok
very productive work place
life insurance only
ALL cultures welcome
THE MAJORITY of workers are ex-convicts working for the first time. BUT most have NO work ethics ,and NO respect for co-workers.
Hardest part of this job is accepting ONLY ONE BREAK in an eight hour shift while working with frozen products in 30 degree temperature and dealing with frost bites.
no enjoyment in this job at all. you are just a number on the line , the supervisor does not care about your name . he only cares about the amount of people on the line to make the neccesary production that makes him look good..
new PLANT MANAGER HAS ABSOLUTELY NO CONCERN FOR THE EMPLOYEES WELL BEING.
I found this job to be enjoyable. I loved working with the customers and liked the overall job. I learned about helping manage a store. The only downfall of the job was having worked out an agreement with the manager on hours/availability and then having a different manager come in that would not compromise on the availability that was previously set up. I was working two jobs and had to choose one.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Dalton, GA – July 26, 2013
The most enjoyable part of the day is the customers with some manners and some of your co workers that truely do their jobs, and the hardest part is the customers who are rude and the company expects you to take whatever they dish out except when you've had all you can take and you speak your mind then the company lets you go after years or months of employment. Unless you can give them 24 hours a day seven days a week it's not worth the effort of applying for the company.
if full time associate it's the vacation and benefits
making people laugh and happy by my smile management do a great job at know and wanting to know whats going on in the store. my co-works are alot of fun with alot of personality i think the hardest part of my day is not understanding some of the language that comes in the store. The most enjoyable part about my job is that i can eat free icee and coffee all day.
Not a good place to work. They start you out making minimum wage. The raises are not worth it and you only get them once a year. Management is under trained and not equip to run the store. The scheduling is done in a way that all ways leaves the store lacking. The only promote employees that are uneducated and willing to be lap dogs.
