The Region Intern position is intended to give college students practical experience in retail operations within Speedway’s gasoline/convenience stores and to expose them to the variety of careers available within the retail industry.
This is an innovative and demanding program offering highly motivated students the opportunity to refine their skills and gain new experiences in working with groups, understanding business metrics, and making a presentation to upper management. The intern has the opportunity to make a real difference by completing a group project and giving assessments of our company programs. The intern will also spend a large amount of time in the stores running register, checking in vendors, learning store operations and management duties, and will have an opportunity to actually manage the business for a few weeks.
After completion of the Intern program, and upon graduation, outstanding performers will have an opportunity to begin a career with Speedway by entering into the District Manager Trainee program or Co-Manager Trainee program.
