I like working at kwiktrip inc. There is a lot of opportunity for advancement within the company, and because they are Midwest based, you always have the option of transferring to another store if you have to relocate, because of school or whatever your situation for moving is. The only reason I’m leaving this company is because my kids are younger and have started school and working 2nd shift I never get to see them anymore, and I’m not willing to step down and take a pay cut (as I drive 30 minutes one way) to be moved to 1st shift. The work is pretty easy. There is a lot to remember, and it always feels like we’re understaffed or sometimes like your doing the work of 3 people because it is so fast paced and busy! Which really gets stressful at times because you always feel either unaccomplished or the next shift gets upset because you were unable to finish what you wanted or needed to get done for the night. The store leaders are also only budgeted so many hours for payroll based on sales. So overtime is not allowed, and often times you have to stay late to finish your work...well I should say, you don’t have to stay, but then the next shift isn’t very happy, and you feel bad! This is a very competitive company and very well worth the extra incentives like gift cards on your birthday and also for being in the top 3 of your district for meeting the company goals and the 40% profit sharing! Definitely a great place to work in my opinion!
Advancement opportunities, great incentives, friendly staff
Always Short handed, a lot to remember, a lot of rules for safety
