Fast Paced Place to Work While Having Fun
Certified Training Store Leader (Current Employee) – Wisconsin – August 15, 2018
Overall, Kwik Trip is a great place to work. They treat their employees the way they would like to be treated. Management is asked to act as both a coworker and complete management or supervisory duties every single day. This causes unnecessary stress, and lots of added time at the end of the day. Salaried management is expected to work 45 hours per week (9 hour days) along with e/o or one weekend per month. However if coworkers are sick or cannot work, management is expected to cover. Being open 24/7 this can cause loads of added hours at anytime of day or night. Labor at the stores is run so lean that hiring people that are not already qualified, or slow paced causes a strain on all other employees. No credit or labor is given when hiring new employees, and the expectation is to be at -1% of your labor budget at the end of the year. For a company that touts excellent guest service, you would expect adequate time to be allocated for taking care of guests, however this is rarely the case unless you want to sacrifice meeting other supervisory expectations. If you enjoy constant changes/additions this is the place for you. From new products to new machines and even new tasks or duties, things at Kwik Trip are always changing, so you better keep up. For the amount of stress and dedication that is expected of management, it is hard to tell if it's all really worth it.
