Very business oriented but provides the tools to succeed.
Operations Manager (Current Employee) – North Baltimore, OH – March 25, 2019
This job will teach you how to run multiple departments in one location. You will be responsible for a lot of leg work but it beats sitting in an office all day. You are held responsible for the operations of the entire facility. The hours can be a con if you have children. Most of my shifts end up being 3 to midnight. However once you reach store manager, it becomes a Monday through Friday job 6:30-4:30 which would be perfect for a family man or woman. You get a ton of vacation time as a manager, 3 weeks total in your first 1.5 year. Salary and bonus structure is top notch. Bonuses are easily attained if you work for the right GM.
Tons of vacation time, plenty of support, and a good culture.
Nights and weekends, upper management can be distanced from the day to day, you will deal with competition on promotions.

Manager (Former Employee) – Columbia, TN – March 23, 2019
Decent place to work at. Just get your stuff done and go home. You have the older women that get their 9-5 Monday through Friday schedule. They walk around all important throughout the day. They act like their s*it don't stink. Management has their favorites.
Shift lead (Current Employee) – Monroe, MI – March 18, 2019
Within 6 months with this place I have gotten 3 noticable raises and a promotion. If you put the work in, it doesn't go unnoticed. Management is great (yes even the corporate ones that come through once a month).
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – SC – March 17, 2019
There's a lack of professionalism when it comes to management. No one is held accountable for consistently coming in late or not showing up at all. There is NO Teamwork! They take advantage of the employees who do what they are supposed to do. Management has a Do This Do That attitude towards employees. They sit in the office and do nothing for hours at a time, take a lunch break, and go right back to doing nothing until its time to go. And they make sure to leave list of things that need to be done, unless, of course, they're too TIRED. In that case they'll just bark them off over the walkie-talkie. Upper management puts way too much focus on what the store looks like on paper when they should be correcting ongoing issues that have a impact on the employees and Customers. For example, the foul sewage smell that lingers throughout the entire store. Their hours and work week make it almost impossible to have a second job. Their 1st shift starts at 12AM midnight. And their work week starts on Wednesday. All in all, not a place you want to work long term. Good Luck!!!
I'm drawing a blank. Give me a second...
Let's see, poor management, lack of respect for other people's time, no accountability, no teamwork, lazy employees/management
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – March 17, 2019
I am still working for Loves, so i am unable to give which location. This is by far the worse place i have ever work for. They have NO regard for there employee's health. There is ALOT of favoritism in the store. If u go to a manager with a problem? They are rude and blow it off. They tell there employee's that they can climb that corporate ladder. But instead of giving promotions from within the store they hire from outside. Some with no experience at all in a truck stop or gas station. Not even customer experience.
Week vacation after 6 months
30 min lunch, favortism, there is No team work, no family feel, no appreciation

Loves was laid back and a fun place to work.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Lee, FL – March 17, 2019
As a crew memeber at Loves I enjoyed the work. It wasn’t to much and I meet a lot of new people. The manager was great, she worked well around others and understood that family was a person first priority.
Shift Leader (Current Employee) – Indianola, MS – March 17, 2019
I worked on the Restaurant side of Love's. A typical day for us is a busy one. Making sure our customers are served quickly with fresh and hot food. I would say the hardest part is dealing with a difficult driver. The best part is seeing the customers happy and leaving with a smile.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Vinton, VA – March 17, 2019

Truck Tire Care Shift Lead (Former Employee) – Tolleson, AZ – March 11, 2019
They di not promote from within unless you are related to someone higher up. they do not care for the employees the way they claim. they make empty promises to promote people only to blow them off the shift lead position has zero authority other than taking the blame for the managers not doing their jobs.
