The Store Career Opportunities and Benefits

Have you ever worked for a company where you didn’t feel valued? Where you felt the business was more important than the people who helped run it every day? Unfortunately, too many of us have experienced this at some point in our careers.

At The Store, this couldn’t be further from our values. We put our Associates at the heart of everything we do, and we know our convenience stores would be nothing without our Associates’ smiling faces and world-class Guest service. As a family-owned, Wisconsin-based business, we understand work/life balance, community support, and a positive working environment. And that’s the culture we promote at The Store

One of the most common roles we hire for is the customer service representative—someone who enjoys greeting and talking with customers and preparing hot food. In addition to interacting with customers and helping with food prep, you’ll also be in charge of cashier duties and helping stock items at The Store—so you’ll have more variety than a typical customer service job!

Why Should You Consider Becoming a Customer Service Representative at The Store?

In addition to the company culture we proudly foster, we’re thrilled to be able to offer our Associates:

  • Competitive pay: Who doesn’t want a well-paying job? Additionally, we offer cash incentives and rapid pay increases at two, six, and 12 months.
  • Opportunities to advance within The Store: We love helping our hard-working Associates move to more advanced roles.
  • Free coffee and soda: Caffeine fans rejoice! Need we say anymore?  
  • Opportunities for flexible scheduling: We know you’re busy. Whether you’re in school, working another job, taking care of a family, or something else, we want to help create a schedule that works for you. 
  • Your own uniform shirt: And not just any old uniform—we think they look pretty great!

Plus, depending on your role, you could qualify for a full range of other benefits, like:

New Eco-Friendly Coffee Cups at The Store

Happy Earth Day! At The Store, we understand the importance of making sustainable choices to lessen our impact on the environment. Speaking of which, you might have noticed the new coffee cups at all 26 of our The Store locations. Not only do they have a fresh look, but our new cups are eco-friendlyso you can enjoy your morning coffee or cappuccino while being kind to Mother Earth.  

So, what makes our new cups so great? Read on! 

1. Our New Cups are Made using 25% Post-Consumer Fiber 

Um…what? Basically, that’s a fancy way of saying our new cups are good for the environment. Post-consumer fiber refers to any material that has been used, recycled, and used again. For instance, about a fourth of the paper material in our cups did not come directly from trees – instead, other sources (like that instruction manual you tossed in the recycling bin) have been re-purposed to help create the cups. Not only does this lessen our impact on trees, but it also helps keep clean, reusable paper material out of landfills.  

2. Our New Cups Source Paper from Organizations Practicing Sustainable Forestry  

According to the University of Southern Indiana, the average American uses seven trees annually in the form of paper products. In total, about 2,000,000,000 trees are used each year to make things like toilet paper or paper towels. With many areas facing deforestation, the Sustainable Forestry Initiative was created to promote responsible forestry practices. By following these guidelines, it is possible to protect our forest resources instead of deplete them. To minimize the impact of your daily cup of joe, our new eco-friendly cups only use material that comes from sustainably-forested trees! 

3. Our New Cups are Compostable 

Composting is the practice of allowing organic materials to break down into simpler compounds. In a nutshell, composting helps keep natural material like food waste out of landfills and allows it to break down into a fertile mixture that will — eventually — resemble dirt. Compost material is great to mix in with potting soil or spread over your garden. Plus, you can add our new cups to your compost bin instead of tossing them in the trash! To learn more about composting, check out this resource from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  

4. Our New Cups Feature a Double-Wall Design 

Our eco-friendly cups use double wall technology. Not only does this shield your hand from excess heat, but it also keeps your drink warmer for a longer period of time. Gone are the days of doubling up on cups or drink sleeves to protect your hand from hot temperatures! Plus, you don’t need to worry about your drink growing cold halfway through your morning commute.  

Mother Earth would agree: the new eco-friendly cups at The Store are better for the environment and better for you. Add some of our delicious gourmet coffee, cappuccino or fresh bean-to-cup coffee to that cup, and we’d call that a win-win!

The Store 6 Spring Activities

There’s nothing like stepping outside to a warm spring day after months of snow and ice. With another midwestern winter behind us, sunshine and above-freezing temperatures are more than welcome! Read on for 6 great ways to spring into the season and make the most of March. 

P.S. – #6 is our favorite! 

1. Go for a Walk 🚶‍♀️ 

It might seem simple, but there’s a reason it’s #1 on our list. Going for a walk is easy, relaxing and enjoyable. Get a little exercise and soak up the sun by taking a stroll around the neighborhood or on your favorite trail. Plus, you can make the walk as long or as short as you like – it can fit into everyone’s schedule, and even 10 minutes will brighten your mood! 

P.S. – If you’re a dog owner, don’t forget to bring your canine companion. They’re sure to have a fetching time. Just watch out for those mud puddles! 

2. Fly a Kite 🪁 

If it’s a windy day, why not dust off that kite in the garage and head to the parkFlying kites is a fun activity for the whole family, and you know the kids will love it. Wisconsin has a TON of public parks, and they’re one of the few places you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the community while offering plenty of room to stay socially distant. That’s a win-win if you ask us! 

3. Read Outside 📖 

Reading is a great way to unwind year-round, but it is even better when you can do it in the sun! Grab a book, magazine or pull up a blog page (like this one). Then, find a comfortable place on a bench, your deckor a patch of grass, and you’re ready to go. Enjoy the calm sounds of nature and get some much-needed vitamin D. Don’t stay out too long, though – it doesn’t have to be summertime for you to get sunburnt! 

4. Ride a Bike 🚲 

Woohoo! The roads, paths and trails are finally free of snow. Well, mostly, anyway! Now’s the time to break out that 10-speed and go for a cruise. Enjoy the warm breeze, sunlight and exercise…it will be a breath of fresh air after a long winter cooped up inside. Literally! Find paved bike paths near you with this handy search feature on TravelWisconsin.com. 

5. Plant a Garden 🥕 

It’s time to let that green thumb of yours shine! Spring is the perfect time to begin planning and prepping a garden. Growing your own food is fun, rewarding, and a nutritious addition to your diet. Read this article for 6 veggies to plant in early spring. Or, if flowers are more your thing, check out this webpage for 25 spring-blooming flowers to spruce up your landscaping.   

6. Enjoy Highlander Grog Cappuccino at The Store! ☕ 

Last but certainly not least, sip on delicious Highlander Grog Cappuccino! This seasonal flavor is available at all 26 The Store locations right now, and you won’t want to miss it. The medium-bodied roast features notes of hazelnut, butterscotch and rum, giving it a smooth and rich flavor that pairs perfectly with brisk March mornings. Plus, Highlander Grog Cappuccino goes well with the activities listed above. This popular flavor is sure to put aextra spring in your step! 

Happy February! At The Store, love is in the air…and by that, we mean the smell of fresh muffins and gourmet coffee.  Sure it’s cold outside, but we’ve got a sweet deal to melt away the winter blues: MUFFIN MANIA!

What is Muffin Mania, you ask? It’s an exciting new promotion taking place at all 26 convenient The Store locationsNow through February 28thstop in and enjoy two David’s Muffins for just $2.22! Or, opt for a David’s Muffin and a 24oz. hot beverage from our coffee bar: coffee, cappuccino, you name it! And guess what – that’s also just $2.22.

New year, new you. You probably hear this saying (or see it in your Instagram feeda lot every time January 1st rolls around.  

For many, the start of a new year brings new goals and resolutions. According to Performance Health, about half of New Year’s Resolutions include losing weight, exercising more, or eating better. Clearly, people care about their health! 

But let’s face it: healthy choices are rarely easy, convenient, or the most delicious option. In today’s fast paced world, it can be difficult to find time to hit the gym. And, while we say we’re going to make a fresh, homecooked meal…well, drive-thru just sound a whole lot easier. 

But here’s the thing: creating healthy habits doesn’t have to be a dramatic lifestyle upheaval full of 4:00 AM cardio sessions and kale smoothies. Small changes can make a big difference. Consider snacking on fruit or a granola bar in place of potato chips. Or, go for a walk instead of binging another episode on Netflix. It all adds up! 

But wait, it gets better. What if we told you healthy options can be tasty and convenient? You’ll find plenty of good-for-you, guilt-free snacks and beverages in our 26 locations throughout Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. Here’s a few items you can pick up at The Store that have been handpicked by a local nutritionist to help get you started: 

Check out this short video for additional details! 

We care about the health of our communities, and we want to support you as you work to achieve your goals. Offering healthy, convenient and tasty options for you and your family is just one way we’re making it easier to stick to those resolutions! 

The Store is a proud sponsor of the Community Weight Race, an annual event promoting weight loss and healthy lifestyle changes in the Stevens Point and Shawano communities Follow along on Facebook as we promote healthy options all winter long!

Help Support Local Pets Here's How

We LOVE animals and we LOVE the communities we call home. This month, we’re excited to support both through our Perks For Pets and Buy A Bone promotions! October 1st – 24th, you can raise much-needed funding for the animal shelter or humane society in your area when you visit The Store...and there’s two great ways to help. No bones about it!

Perks For Pets 

Hey all you cool cats and kittens, need of some CATfinationWhen you enjoy a 24 oz. hot beverage at The Store, not only will you get to use the new (and adorable) Furry Friends cup, but you can also treat yourself to a David’s Muffin for only 59¢! Now, that’s a deal that will have you feline fine no matter how ruff the day. 

The best part? A portion of each hot beverage and muffin purchase will go to the animal shelter or humane society in your area! You can help local pets find their furever home by simply enjoying coffee and a muffin. Supporting animals in need has never been easier…or more delicious!

Benefiting Animal Shelters 

The following shelters will receive the funds raised in their respective markets through the Perks For Pets and Buy A Bone promotions: 

The impact of COVID-19 has limited the ways shelters receive support, including decreased volunteer work and a limited ability to host fundraising events. But, we need to stay pawsitiveNow more than ever, we hope you’ll join us in assisting the wonderful shelters in our communities. Your support will go a long way toward maintaining the well-being of sheltered animals while they await a loving home. Thank you fur your help, our Guests sure are pawsome!
