    This is a great company

    Travel Center Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsI have worked here for over a year and have been treated very well. The team members work great together and most everyone works hard. I see a lot of unhappy employees on this site and I have something to say to them; get a new job if your not happy. It's true you have to work hard at Pilot, but this a business not a daycare. I enjoy going to work and I try to make sure we have some fun while working hard. It really all depends on the management. Attitude is everything.

    ConsSure I would love to have more payroll, but who wouldn't? These are tough times we are in and you have to be thankful for what you have.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on truckin'
