    I have been working at Murphy Oil part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, get to know everyone in the city, learn about tobacco, and help meet customer desires. It's easy enough to work your way higher in the company.

    Cons

    If you have an incompetent manager, it can cause some stress. There will always be ignorant customers. Getting everything done can require working off the clock.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    25 hours a week means I need a second job.

    Pros

    Job Opportunities
    Able to have Manager work with you when it is needed for Doctor Appointments

    Medical Insurance For Hourly Employees
    Raises for Hourly Employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to check on your Managers a little closer. Some of them get away with a lot of crap. Also when you put out Holiday Calendar we are told that Cashiers get Holiday Pay for Christmas and that is not true.

    I have been working at Murphy Oil

    Pros

    Murphy Oil has all sorts of offers for its employee's. The insurance is good. They have stock purchase plans and 401k plans also to help you if you decide to go back to school. The people they have choose to work for them are all very friendly.

    There is realy only one thing i can think of and that would be dealing with an angry customer,other than that nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Murphy Oil

    Pros

    you become more self reliant and you learn the true business, must be willing to learn and retain new information.

    Cons

    it is a one person job and this can lead to stress with, things being left up to one person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start making all stations no matter the size a 2 person job site. this alone will improve your customer service.
