High stress, fast paced, they'll run you to the ground
Cashier/Food Preparation (Former Employee) – Matawan, NJ – April 23, 2019
Unfortunately QuickChek as a company has proven they don't care for their employees. Unless said employees are top tier office workers or District Leader. Otherwise, they'll take every ounce of you they can while you're there and stretch it as far as possible.
Half the problem is the other employees. The job may be fast paced and stressful, but it's not entirely hard, it just requires you to actually work. Somehow other employees will find a way to waste time instead of doing their job, which in turn makes it super stressful for those of us that do our job because it leaves more for us to do with no extra time to do it.
Also, being required to wear a hat indoors should never be a thing unless you're working with food specifically. And I don't know why beards aren't allowed since mustaches are, as well as dyed hair and tattoos.
Overall it's a poor place to work. Partly because the company itself doesn't seem to care, partly because the employees don't care, but really mostly because the customers are terrible. I've never been yelled at, threatened, demeaned, insulted, or belittled before until I started working at QuickChek. A lot of the customer base is indifferent, which can come off as rude; but the loudest ones, the ones you remember, are despicable excuses for human beings.
I will never work here again and would never recommend it either.
