    I worked at Pilot Flying J

    Pros

    Good employer, professional atmosphere. I liked my co-workers, very nice people. Not overwhelming on the duties of any one position in the store.

    Cons

    The job and the atmosphere were a very nice experience. Although the hours were very challenging to plan around? Good job if you're looking for part time?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Creating more full time positions would be helpful.

    I have been working at Pilot Flying J full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work for Knoxville. There is lots of growth happening in this company, which does allow does movement into other departments. Great place to learn a trade and move on to bigger role and pay elsewhere. The hours can be anywhere from 40-50 hours per week in the office depending on role and season plus on-call and work from home.

    Cons

    Company admits they pay below average rates for white collar roles as they benchmark themselves against retail and convenience store industry companies. Benefits are lackluster, with deductibles in the 1,500-6,000 range.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the value to employees to continue to stay with you.
