    Decent job

    Administrative Assistant II (Current Employee)
    Albuquerque, NM

    Prosmediocre pay and bonuses, a lot of overtime, little supervision, mostly awesome coworkers, great benefits.

    Consterrible communication, have to relocate for advancement (if at all possible), no news is good news.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Interesting Job Hard To believe Folks Make A Career Here.

    Customer Service Clerk (Former Employee)
    Pagosa Springs, CO

    ProsChance to meet different people.

    ConsLow pay, long hours with no real breaks, most employees are not team players just folks looking for some quick cash so they can move along.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop the store team to care more.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Store Managers at Western Refining Retail

    Store Manager (Current Employee)
    El Paso, TX

    ProsHow much you learn, if you can learn everything and handle the work load you can work at any other chain and it will be a piece of cake.

    ConsThe pay vs work load and no good feedback. OM and DM usually will only notice the things that are wrong, even if its petty. They are reluctant to give any good feedback.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic on what can be done, we hear when you all had your store this and that but in reality its like you all forget the challenges every store can face. Give recognition when its due instead of bringing your managers moral down with every visit!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    your experience depends entirely on the next level manager

    Store Manager (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    Prosvery autonomous, expect little to no supervision or contact with your management unless something goes wrong. This is good because you can run your store as you see fit, within corporate guidelines of course.

    Consno feedback, poor compensation, no communication, lack of work/life balance. Because of the lack of communication and supervision, you don't really get noticed if you are doing a good job and have little growth opportunities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLevels of management are too far apart, store managers rarely have contact with district managers, and next to never with operations managers. Upper management does not have a realistic view of operations on a day to day basis.
