Speedway at times way very slow paced and a relaxing job. Speedway did get busy pretty often and then it would become fast pace and stressful.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Hammond, IN – December 11, 2018
The Speedway I worked at in Hammond, IN on Calumet Avenue had a good manager but my coworkers belittled me and that caused me to quit. Besides that, I did enjoy working at Speedway since it was a way to make money for myself and it was an easy job.

This company is not very supportive if you or family members have health issue's. They push you to come back to work before your ready. I had thyroid cancer, had 3 weeks off. Was only to work 35 hours a week when I came back. I was working g 70 plus. They would give me no help and then told me that my cancer was not a true medical reason to have off so they wanted me to pay back my medical leave pay. Then after I quit they would not pay me my 401 or vacation until i threatened to sue

I started working at speedway in October of 2014 and worked there til Feb 2017. I was pregnant from June 2015 and had my daughter January 2016. They were always understanding when I told them I was and all throughout. I was even transferred to a different speedway after I had my daughter to pick up more hours. But that's when everything went down hill. I was working 30 hours a week. Until a new manager came in and cut my hours to one work day for 10 hours. We were butting heads, because I had a newborn and was in college and she just for some reason couldn't handle it. But it is a good company if you have the right managers. And I only made $1.40 raise in the time I worked there (2 years)

if speedway did more communication the company would be amazing and the stores would never lose employees or managers this is ridiculous.. I have noticed they have great people who love to work for the company but the way they treat them is not acceptable in the real world.…

he belittled, bullied, swore, demeaned, and ruined my mental health. i have NEVER been so disrespected in my entire life... he was awful to work for. and upper management would do nothing to help. it's sad because other than that i enjoyed my job but i couldnt handle the abuse. i was stressing even on my days off. it sucked.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – December 5, 2018
my 1st manager was wonderful understanding & flexible as well as always available the next 3 however wanted to run you like a robot on a work line with not a care in the world that you're an actual human being with basic needs and family & would hire & fire at a drop of a dime leaving us overworked and understaffed
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Davison, MI – December 5, 2018
Working for Speedway was very enjoyable. The manager at the store that I worked in was fair and tried very hard to work with all employees in order to promote a healthy work environment. Although sometimes extremely busy and hectic, working for the company was not stressful, the customers were the best!
flexible with my availability, good manager, awesome customers
Retail Store Operations Manager Trainee (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – December 4, 2018
Speedway is an okay job if you're a teenager or high school dropout. Its not the place for a person seeking a career UNLESS you can get to a regional or corporate HQ. It's definitely not the place for a person trying to provide for a family.
Salaried position pay is based on a 50 hour work week. 99% of those hours are spent standing. There isn't even any initial cautioning or recommendation for comfortable walking shoes to mitigate the discomfort.
This indicates that there is a lack of concern and consideration for the worker's quality of work life....at least by store and district management.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – December 4, 2018
I used to work with the company when it was WilcoHess. It was a great place to work.Everyone took pride in their jobs and respected the owners of the company. When Speedway took over, there was hope that the company would continue to grow. But that has not happened. Talking to lots of people that work for the company tells me how bad it has gotten. Not only for the employees but look at the condition of the stores and the office. It's like a disease that has taken root and spreading.....so sad!!!!!!!!!!!
