Good Company with unrealisticly high expectations
Assistant Store Leader (Current Employee) – Wisconsin – December 12, 2015
Kwik Trip is not a bad company, but they sometimes push too hard in areas and then have to overcompensate in another area to fix a problems created by the initial push. They sometimes have unrealistic expectations on what can be accomplished with the amount of people that are available in a store on a given day. While it is important to sell new products, these focus days are not just sometimes, but constant. Having to meet and exceed these expectations while simultaneously providing the best customer service in the industry is challenging and creates a great deal of stress in both employees and managers. While employees are provided very competitive wages in the industry, the turn over for the company is slowly creeping higher as more and more employees decide that the money isn't worth it. That being said, Kwik Trip has created a great culture that promotes growth in their employees and and focuses on creating a work environment based on core moral values instead of the bottom dollar. Their philosophy is that if those core values are met, success will surely follow. So far, this has been true, but an erosion of those values will end the company.
