I was a co manager at one of the busiest stores in the company. I had no work- life balance, the managers only care about themselves and what benefits them. They scheduled me ridiculous hours... 1st one day 2nd the next 3rd the day after or 3rd and off the next day than first the following. I couldnt function as human being or be there for my family. Money was decent, but other than that it wasnt good.

I enjoyed working for Speedway they were very good to me and I advanced quickly with the help of upper Management . The support from the corporate office was helpful in running the store when I was employed there.
We have fun and joke around with other employees to help pass the day

Its a very high pace and fast work environment and are giving multiple task to do with very few man power to work with and no one wants to work as a team to accomplish task that we are required everyday to be done.We get no breaks and i think get paid way to less for the work they want us to do and require us to do.

You will meet so many great people and your bosses, co-workers are GREAT. Loved my managers. Miss it so much. Had all the hours I needed, given plenty of freedom and decision-making ability. Everyone there has a good time, and being a CSR is really like socializing at a party...it's just that easy.

A typical day would consist of me clocking in to work. I'd start the hour by hour tasks, either sweeping or mopping and would then work the cash register. The people I work with are cheerful people and like to joke around and keep the work environment professional but also playful.

speedway was alright place for starting out. it was not a place to stay due to they don't have respect to their employees. mother in law died and they refused to give me day off. when funeral came up my boss told me that I could be a little late but still refused to let me take day off.

Speedway is a nice place to work as far as you know what's expected of you and co-workers are generally friendly but the management can be very poor as well as training. Overall speedway is an alright place to work.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 16, 2018
I worked at a very busy Speedway despite its small stature. We got all kinds of people. Tourists, students and Universal Workers. I worked the morning shift. At first I would be with someone else but then the hours got reduced over time. There would be times where I would be stuck taking customers by myself. Often times, we would joke around to make the job easier. The hardest part was dealing with customers who think that they paid for gas with a debit/credit card, they automatically get cash back. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting different people everyday.
Overall I enjoyed working at Speedway and learning all that I did.

Speedway was my first gas station job. We weren't a regular Speedway though, we were also a truck stop. And we were the busiest in the region. It was always busy, so there was always something to do. BONUS! and the people that worked there were amazing for the most part. We had a family there too. They were really good about training and being patient when you didn't get something. I learned about doing diesel fuel transactions, and how to keep a high traffic truck stop spotless and fully stocked at all times. It was a challenge, but it was a challenge I was ecstatic to meet. We had candy selling competitions for the districts (ours stretched across the south shore) and in my first month I won first place out of all the store. The next month I received a promotion. Once my training was complete I got another promotion offered to me from another store in a different area.

The pay is barely above minimum wage and the district manager didn't seem to care about anything but numbers. Old manager was great but forced to move to a new store against their will and replaced by a bozo.
Assistant Manager/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Novi, MI – October 16, 2018
Wait on customer's, counting cash, inventory, banking, paperwork,cleaning, stocking, checking in deliveries,pricing and stocking merchandise. Hardest part of my job was the occasional unhappy customer.

Speedway goes around with the philosophy of place a warm body in ,get what you can out of that person and send them on there way .Speedway has no time for anything but number crunching at all cost .It's not unusual to have 3-4 associates go through this place a week because retaining employees is not in their culture .They have no need to keep employees because management is required to work at salary and keep the doors open no matter what the cost .management is often required to work 80 plus hours a week to keep the doors open.

+ Fast-paced environment where the customer is always the priority. The customers were actually the most pleasant part of the job. Good customer service job, recommended for those who like interacting with people. Interesting benefits for part-time workers such as tuition reimbursement and adoption assistance, more benefits for full-time workers. You should be able to multitask. Weekly pay, overtime pay, time and a half/holiday pay for multiple holidays.
- Bad attitudes all the time. Hostile environment. Management makes you feel incompetent for not knowing how to do something, instead they'll push you to the side and do it themselves. Definitely some favoritism going on when it came to scheduling. A lot of work for little pay even if you work 40 hours a week. Wouldn't recommend as a starting job unless you like getting stepped on. The positives don't make up for the awful experience.
