Fast pace. All multitasking. Can be stressful!
Assistant Food Service Leader (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – March 22, 2019
I work as an Assistant Food Service Leader. The bulk of my job is cooking the food that we serve. It can be very stressful especially during meal times, because as soon as you make something, more food will sell out. Sometimes I'm literally making food nonstop. In this role, I also have to perform food safety and quality duties like taking temperatures of several things, as well as ordering food/supplies, and cleaning and washing dishes.
To me the best parts of the company are their yearly bonus and benefits. At the end of each year, Kwik Trip shares 40% of their earnings with the employees. Some parts of the benefits package can be improved on like PTO and having tuition reimbursement, but in terms of a convenience store, you can't beat the compensation. You also can't beat the pay. I make more than some people do with government jobs!
I also work with a good group of people. They're really willing to go out of their way to be helpful when possible.
Pay/Compensation, Coworkers, Year end bonus
Very hard to take your break(s), PTO could be increased and it's hard to use, Stores are understaffed most of the time which adds on stress.
