Kwik Trip is honoring the seniority of PDQ employees it hires and waiving their normal waiting periods for health, dental, 401(k), vacation and sabbaticals, reported the newspaper. Hourly wages begin at $12 per hour and all employees qualify for annual bonuses that last year were 16.5%.
"We want them to come on board," Ring said of PDQ employees.
The company also has been holding career fairs and open interviews throughout the area, said the report. The company is hiring hundreds of workers to staff the stores, all of which will have more employees than they do now.
"We've picked locations so we can get to everybody," Kristy Barta, a district leader for Kwik Trip, told the Wisconsin State Journal. "A lot of people are coming in, and we've been doing a ton of interviews."
