    Current Employee - Assistant Store Leader

    I have been working at Kwik Trip full-time (more than 8 years)


    This company is run well by a great, very humble family. The employees have annual leadership surveys to rate their individual Store Leaders and Assistants. These surveys are taken as a learning opportunity for the Leaders to ensure their employees are happy. It is possible to move up inside the company without a college degree. I consider this a huge benefit because I personally, willingly chose not to go to college. My personal salary matches and often exceeds other salaries which require a college degree. There is a great interview process which helps make the right decision for the company and individual stores. The interview is not about getting bodies in the door, it is about whether this person is going to be a good fit with this company.


    As a coworker, if moving up inside the company is your goal, you have to find a way to stand out, as a individual, to not only your Store leader but also your District Leader. This is difficult. If you do not have a Store Leader who will boast about their employees, even the Assistant's accomplishments then more times than not they will go unrecognized or it will be assumed the Store Leader made the accomplishment themselves or under their direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be helpful to know the Assistants who would like to move up, even pass the Store Leader position. Also ensuring politics are not playing a role in who is moving up next. Maybe the question does not circle around-they are the next person in line...maybe the question circles around-they are the best person for the job.
