Potential to Build from the Ground Up
Finishing Crew (Former Employee) – La Crosse, WI – August 14, 2015
Kwik Trip is a fantastic company to start and end one's career in. This year alone, they're opening 35 different stores spanning over three different states. Kwik Trip has plenty of opportunities for most anyone, be it production, distribution, customer service, office and clerical, driving, and the like, so there's sure to be opportunities for most anyone.
Depending on your department, Kwik Trip's pay and benefits can range from fantastic to underwhelming. Some food production departments, for example, can differ in as much as three or four dollars per hour, while doing similar duties.
Work can be challenging, but rewarding, if you find yourself working the right position, and the company is generally eager to help place you based on your strengths and weaknesses.
However, the hiring process is extremely long and cumbersome. My entire hiring process spanned over the course of four months. Most every department is short staffed, and little is done to hire somebody in a timely manner. My particular department was short handed for two months before even an attempt at hiring somebody new was made. It took nearly five months to fill one of the two openings on my team alone.
