Pros: free races, advancement opportunity
Cons: few poor managers
A typical day at P2R (Pole Position Raceway) involves opening the store by getting all of the karts, chargers, and track prepared for the day. Once customers begin coming in, you will greet them, introduce them to the facility, brief them over the karts and rules of racing, run their race, then thank them for visiting after they are done with all their races.
I learned a lot about working with a team to get projects done. Our biggest project is changing the track layout four time a year which requires a team effort in order to get the barriers and tires moved in place all in time to open the store on time.
Management can vary. They are all people and how much you like each manager depends on how your personalities compare to each other. The majority of the managers I worked with were excellent and encouraged me to do my best work every day.
You will often work with high school students but again, they are just people as well so you may really like or really dislike your co-workers depending on their individual personality. Management does a good job keeping people around who interact well with the other team members and will let people go if they struggle to keep positive morale while on the clock.
The toughest part about working at P2R is keeping your energy up at the end of an eight hour shift. You are constantly running or walking and have very little down time to catch your breath.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the reason there are so many customers that visit even during the week, go karts! You get free races working there and during your races you will have fun competition either with yourself or with the other team members or possibly even some regular customers.
