Terrible management

It was one of the worst jobs I've ever had. The management was that bad. There was inconsistent management from store to store, the DM would lie, it would send emails and then coming to the store in a race the email say that he never sent them. Absolutely awful.

Horrible Corporation

If your a store manager don't plan on having a life outside of work. High expectations and low pay. Workweek is a minimum of 50 hours but that usually ends up to be at least 65-70 hours do to the low hours you are allowed to schedule the front desk.

Pros

paid holidays

Cons

no break, long hours low pay

Fast Paced

The Pantry was no different than other convenience stores. I loved my job at there. The people I worked with were great and so were the customers. I would love to work for them again if they didn't sell out to Circle K

High Stress

High Stress and demanding hours. Decent pay and bonuses available should you meet the high expectations. Flexible for regular associates, managers are not very appreciated. Work/Life balance needs work. Expected to be a magician.

Customer service

Was an enjoyable job as long as the District manger wasn't trying to do the managers job. Asst. Manager was constantly trying to undermine me and my work habits. Wanted my position. Was a very undermining company. Sometimes I had to work 3 days straight with no break and no help. Became delirious at times from trying to Manage and perform regular duties. Hard to get good people that wasn't constantly stealing in the Beach area.

Pros

Great pay

Cons

having to take on shifts when employees didn't show up for work.

Overall good company need more dependable workers

Worked as a cashier, then an assistant manager, and store manager for this company. The pay is good but when you're in management they expect alot from you and it can be stressful when you don't have good employees to help with the process

Long work hours

being a manager for The Pantry is hard work. You are a salaried employee and do not get overtime. You also are on call 24-7-365. If someone calls out and you cannot find a replacement then you have to work. The people I hired were great and we all were like one big family.

Pros

Great employees

Cons

Long hours

My Review for the The Pantry (Kangaroo)

With my years of experience as a being manager in the retail industry and food service, I took on managing a convenient store not realizing what I was getting into when you have a 24- hour store that is open.

Pros

there is no pros working when you have to pay for your meals, no dicounts giving to employees.

Cons

they are no con to report about working at a convient store.
