I am working for one of the worst managers at the store I am currently employed. He has very little integrity; after a few bugs were spotted in the coffee island, it took him 2 weeks to decide that maybe the exterminator should be called, but not until a CUSTOMER had to show it to him. We constantly run out of product and expired product isn't removed from shelves timely. Expressing concern to him goes in one ear & out the other, and the usual answer involves "it goes against my bonus". Hes been rude to team members in front of customers to the point that HR had to be contacted. I hope Speedway wakes up and takes the complaints seriously or they are going to continue to lose good employees and good customers.

My typical day at this employment starts around the afternoon, which on some days may be 3pm or 4pm. Here i am responsible for making sure the store is clean, providing great customer service, while making sure each customer has a pleasant day entering and leaving from the store. The most enjoyable part of the job would be seeing a regular customer and knowing exactly what he or she wants. That much of a little effort shows that customer that we care about them at the job, which in returns makes them return.

I had the pleasure of working with the company for a year and a half and had many advancements while I was there. I started out on third shift then moved to making the food for the store. After 7 months of making food I moved up to shift lead.

Speedway is a decent place to start out working at, but so much is expected for minimum wage here. I worked mostly second shift in my time at Speedway, and it was always 2 employees. We were responsible for cleaning the entire store, stocking shelves and the coolers, all while trying to provide the customers with everything they needed. However, sometimes this got frustrating because of how busy the store could get at any given time. Rarely did you have time to breathe, and there were no scheduled breaks at all. The store manager was also terrible at writing schedules, so often we would have to correct him on this. On top of that, he liked to leave his employees stuck at the register for hours on end so that he could goof off and do whatever he wanted. It also didn't help that he would leave a huge pile of work for the next manager, making their job even harder.
In summary, only work here part time if you can help it, and voice your concerns. They hate losing employees at this company because they are consistently understaffed. Make them listen to you.
401K plan, flexible hours, work with school schedule, great coworkers
No breaks at all, unorganized management, extremely busy at all times
CO MANAGER (Former Employee) – Cleveland, TN – February 13, 2017
This was a job full of challenges. There is fantastic training development and advancement opportunities. I was able to develop leadership skills and improved my customer service skills. In general it was an energetic and fun workplace. I appreciated the diversity of the customers and my co-workers. I found it difficult to balance my life with the work requirements.
For a first job, it definitely introduced me into being an adult real well. Some were really helpful, others kind of made it reality of having a job and dealing with people you might not want to deal with. As a company, it is the most well organized companies I've seen in awhile. You work well, you gain a lot from it. I was always moving and working which I love; there was always something to do.
Health benefits, a lot of hours, paid weekly
Hired anyone really so it was difficult to work with people that didn't wanna listen or help
