Love's was founded on the values of integrity, customer focus, strong work ethic, innovation and perseverance. Tom Love displayed all of these as he built Love's from the ground up from one small filling station in western Oklahoma in 1964 to more than 300 Love's locations coast to coast. These core values are the keys to our success. But Tom didn't do it by himself. He surrounded himself with visionary team members who embodied the same set of values. Today, we are looking for these in every person we hire. No matter what job you do for Love's, your commitment to integrity, customer focus, strong work ethic, innovation and perseverance will not only continue our legacy of growth, it will also ensure your successful career with one of America's top-ranked private companies according to Forbes.
