    I worked at Western Refining full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Given a lot of responsibility. This is great if you are a self-starter looking to gain experience like I am. Luckily this was noticed by my manager and I was able to advance.

    Cons

    Some of the new direction the management was taking was not for me. Felt like a much bigger company with a lot of bureaucracy. It was a better place to work when it had a more family feel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down on the bureaucracy. Yes, you need to implement policies and procedures, but you don't need to do it by layering a ton of extra work on your employees. And you can do it without getting rid of the small company feel that you had when corporate was in El Paso.

    I worked at Western Refining full-time

    Pros

    The people are the best reason to work there. Best pay in the area with good benefits.

    Cons

    Constantly on call even when on time off but this is to be expected with the pay and nature of the business.

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to learn, to teach, to encourage, to interact with and be part of a growing team.

    Cons

    There is no trust or no need to trust, there is only Policy. Policy. Policy. Policy. Policy. Policy. Policy. Policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes, Store Managers do know best, how else do you think we got this far? Let us Manage our stores.
