Overall compensation for your work
It's not Buccee's-level pay, but then, it's a family-owned store, not a national chain. I started at $8/hr in late 2013 and wound up making $10/hr by early 2015, averaging about 42 hours a week.
Office / Work Environment
It can get stressfully fast-paced when the lottery jackpots are high, and my coworkers often claimed the ambient temperature was always too cold (I'm from Chicago originally, so I never noticed).
I'll be honest, don't take this section of the review at face value. I never had a personal life to start with, so I cannot properly judge it.
It really felt like a family to me, and I was really sad to go.
If you're good at your job, they'll keep you until you quit.
No one in a wheelchair will be getting up to storage any time soon, but other than that it's all on the first floor.
The bosses like for the employees to stay busy, so on slow days the only real challenge is finding something to do.
What I like about the company
They genuinely care about you and your happiness as an employee.
What I dislike about the company
The fact that we sold lottery tickets. It's a stress nightmare when the jackpots get high.
