Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Olive Hill, KY – January 25, 2017
Absolutely loved working with the public and was never a dull moment while there. It was stressful always having to watch the pumps to make sure there was not drive offs. The Manager and Co-Manager were great people to work with. Learned how to keep my patience and work with the public.

A typical day at speed way consist of answering phones, stocking, cleaning bathrooms and making sure that the customers are satisfied with there service. Coming in and having a great attitude is key because you are dealing with customers that could be having a bad day and also customers that can be having a great day too. In addition to that your attitude everyday has to be great too so that the customer continues to come back

never allowed breaks. ever. not even for a 14 hour shift. I refuse to be a slave. most of the customers were great. no employee should be forced to work long hours without a break, no drinks were allowed near the work area regardless of the fact that we talked all day. weren't even allowed meal breaks.
The hardest part of the just would have to be the speedy rewards system. Per week you need to have a minimum percent of transactions with an speedy rewards card. it is extremely hard to meet such percentages. some people done want a card, others forget their card.

Clerk (Former Employee) – Middleburg Heights, OH – January 13, 2017
While there are certainly worse jobs to have, Speedway was a good place to work. My co-workers were friendly, managers, for the most part, competent and good to work for. However, they don't pay much and, especially when gas prices reached nearly $4 a gallon, customers could be rude, surly and downright mean. You'll have to take a lot of guff from them at times, not to mention people trashing your restroom. Also, Speedway leaves you alone during third shift, fortunately, local police officers made my station a regular stop.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Midland, MI – January 11, 2017
My day started at 2:30 am arriving at work at 4 am and leaving no later than 3 pm 5 days a weekand on call 24\7. I have learned alot working there over the years problem solving how to deal with each employee differently and getting to know them and helping them out to the best of my ability. The hardest part of my job was that across the board management didn't keep things fair and as a manager I never felt that I did a good enough job I never felt appreciated as an employee. What made my job amazing was the customers and employees I really made a connection and a bond with people.
