From a co-workers point of view

Things About Kwik Trip You May Not Know
CSP Daily News

I've worked at Kwik Trip for exactly a year this month, and here's some things I've learned throughout my experience.

1. Our Mission Statement

Most co-workers know our mission statements like it is the pledge of allegiance, it is usually read at the beginning of every meeting.

2. Team Work

Everything we do we do with team work, which makes working so much easier.

3. Pay Day

We get paid every two weeks, and on each pay day we receive a free car wash which is a great bonus!

4. Employee Gift Cards

If our store does good in a certain area we all get gift cards, which is definitely a perk.

5. Friendly Competition

We love to have fun competitions within our co-workers such as: who can sell the most Karuba Gold coffees?

6. Commercials

Everyday you work you listen to the same commercials over and over, eventually you get them memorized.

7. Slogans

We always find it funny when our guests begin to say our slogans before us, such as, "see you next time!"

8. Christmas Bonus

All of our co-workers love and appreciate the 40% profit we get back during The Christmas Season.

9. Truck Days

Truck days are usually always hectic; trying to complete duties before the truck arrives while also prepping for truck is never easy!

10. Guests On The Phone

We really dislike when guests are on their phones while we are checking them out, it is very hard to get your attention while you're on your phone, and we want to have a conversation with you so we know you're getting good service!

11. Customers who pay in quarters

It is a pain to count, we do not enjoy it, but either way we will gladly take them from you because we want you to be happy!

12. EBT

We take EBT but it does NOT work on hot food.

13. $100 Bills Are Frowned Upon

It seems as if we always get them after we drop our $20 bills. The reason why we don't like $100 bills is because we are not supposed to keep anything higher then $10 bills in our drawers and we do feel guilty giving you all $5-$10 bills back in cash for a $100 bill.

14. Karuba Gold

We are one of the only gas stations with a Karuba Gold machine! (They use these at coffee shops like Caribou, and our iced ones are on sale for only $1.49 for the summer!)

15. Coupons

We do NOT do double coupon Tuesday days, but we do take competitor gas coupons. We usually take our own coupons when they're expired too, depending on what they are.

16. Rewards Cards

One of the major things we get asked is, "do you have gas rewards?" Yes, we do, but it is a debit card or a credit card that you use, and you get the rewards back quarterly instead of instantly.

17. Monthly Paper Ads

Every first Wednesday of the month we sell our coupons in the newspapers in our stores, you can save $20+ by buying just one paper!


We treat our co-workers like family, and work together like a team, which is why I love my job the most.

19. We Care

We genuinely want you to walk out of our store happy, and we will do anything it takes to make you that way!

20. Guests

We appreciate all of our guests and the wonderful opportunity of a job that they give us!

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
