TRACK SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – Fishers, IN – May 15, 2018
K1 Speed is perfect for workers who need to be constantly moving. While the slower hours may consist of cleaning and finding ways to keep motivated, the busy hours require non-stop moving and attention. The atmosphere is relaxed and full of opportunities to connect with coworkers.

doing the same tasks at top speed is the name of the game you have to make sure all of your gear is up to snuff and all of your customers have been properly tended to for their convenience as well as their safety
Full-time Mechanic (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ 85034 – April 12, 2018
Seems like everyone is out for your job. Poor management. Nothing but drama and employee praise seems like a rare occasion. The pay there is fairly poor in my opinion. More along the lines of a job for a college student otherwise you run into the difficulty of being paid enough to barely afford your own bills. Not very satisfied with my time there.
High Energy Environment with Good Customer Relationships
Corporate Group Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – March 28, 2018
Management is good about including the staff in all company updates and changes. Promotional information is provided to the staff in a timely manner to ensure effective sales execution. Good Customer Relationships.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Carlsbad, CA – March 21, 2018
The work environment was exactly what I was looking for, very fast-paced, very fun and energetic, and really exciting. Working as a team with the girls at the front desk and the guys in the pit was what i looked forward to every day. All my co-workers were really fun to work with, driving the go carts after or before my shift was very fun. The hourly pay was not that great, BUT commission and tips made up for that. It was a great way to motivate every to sell and up-sell the race packages to customers. Would definitely recommend working here.
MECHANIC MANAGER (Former Employee) – Littleton, CO – January 19, 2018
A typical day at work expect to do the job of 3 people while other employees play on their phones or stand outside smoking. Management will hide in the office or stay in the lobby watching TV while they are needed to get the business operating properly.
Regional Manager (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – January 17, 2018
Save yourself the headaches and stress by passing on this company.
CEO - Has no vision, does not value employees, doesn't plan thoroughly.
Training - Done by staff that is incapable of persevering in difficult times. Trainers are not managers, but hourly staff that have never been managers. Training at the Corp office / Center does not prepare you for the center you will work in.
Compensation - The pay from market to market can be huge. Consistency not the same...some have 2 weeks off, some 1 week off. No 401k, direct deposit for hourly.
Safety and Security - WARNING...OEM parts not being used, broken frames are welded back together until unusable. Any part that can be made overseas for cheaper its been done. Staff is not trained on first aid response, and first aid supplies on hand are cold packs and same cut supplies.
If your looking for a first job, its ok depending on what you do. But for any type of Management job...STAY AWAY!!!!
free races after 90 days
long hours, company looks for the bad and does train for the good
Cashier (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – January 9, 2018
The people were great! This job is great for working students or a first job for experience. I've learned a lot from working her for a year, and was able to carry on what I've learned onto my next job choices.
Cashier/Cashier Supervisor (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA 95827 – November 1, 2017
Probably one of the best jobs I had, unfortunately had to leave because I moved. Very fun environment to work in and bond with the children and adults that would come and visit the location. Very high paced place to work on the weekends.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Carlsbad, CA – October 22, 2017
K1 Speed has been around since the Summer of 2003. It's a fun place to work but management, though very supportive of employees individually, lacks support all around. Communication is scarce usually but is slowly improving. Not everyone is on the same page due to corporate relaying information last minute. Coworkers are usually team players at this location. People have a bad day sometimes but who doesn't. As an employee, all positions are able to receive tips from parties and are split evenly. Cashiers habe the opportunity to make more because they earn commission. Overall, I strongly recommemd giving this job a try. Mostly part time employment, but there is room for promotion for those with a strong work ethic and a "go-getter" attitude. It's a fun work environment.
Commision for cashiers, fun work environment, fun coworkers, amazing discounts and free racers for employees after 90 days employment
No free lunches, no paid time off, sick days cannot be accumulated, stressful and fast pace work environment, unsteady hours, training is not very extensive and needs work.
General Manager (Current Employee) – United States – September 28, 2017
This company will do a classic bait and switch. The job posting says one title and they hire you and your office letter might say the same but, it changes to what many would consider a lower position with no reason or explanation at all. Sr. management is a joke! They change roles and their minds like the hours change every day. The owner trusts no one and therefore everyone lives in constant fear of their job. If salaried managers were working less than 48-52 hours a week they were threatened and likely fired. The sales team has come a long way and has really stepped up to become team players. HR- WHAT A NIGHTMARE!! They change out the staff in the HR department monthly. Because they want to pay almost nothing to the HR team they only stay until something better comes along.
Sales Associate and Cashier (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 14, 2017
The company is greedy. Comission salary for cashiers has been lowered and most likely will continue to lower over time. Management pushes front desk associates to sell certain packages (that are more beneficial to them than us) Why would I compete for something that doesn't benefit me or get me money ? Cleaning is a must, and expect to do a lot of it during slow seasons. Zero appreciation for their staff. Zero proper training for new employees. Extremely inconsistent. Save yourself a headache.
corporation was not interested in training employees
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 3, 2017
The environment of clients was fun and exciting. The atmosphere of the building and entertainment of driving the all electric go karts was extremely satisfying. The work culture was between employees and management was competitive and untrained to properly provide customers or employees the full potential of providing a fun and carefree experience to enjoy the go kart driving. The employee and management turnovers were extremely high and training for all employees or access to handbooks and checklists were not enforced by managers or HR department properly. this combination created confusion and drama amongst the entire staff. Good employees burnt out fast and moved to other healthier more established companies that provide a better experience and compensation/rewards for their work.
discounts on retail and food, beautiful fun building, access to 3 free races a week after 90 days
uneducated managment and staff, little accountability, no formal training for emergency or difficult situations with customers or employee disputes.
