I worked at Susser Holdings full-time (More than a year)
Great money, experienced IT people, friendly co-workers. Owner and his family were awesome people, I could not say enough good things about the owners. I enjoyed working on the applications given to me, the job duties were good for first IT experience.
Long hours, many weekends, high turn over. Can't take any vacation till after first year and then it is only for 1 week. After second year it gets better. Lots of on-call time. I have to assume the owners were not aware of what occurs in some departments. Unfortunately as in many IT first jobs there is no training. Had about 1 week of someone going through the motions of doing the work and me watching (I assume this is what happens at many companies).
Advice to Management
Should look into training upper management on people management. Some are great but many are lacking in basic people management 101 skills.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Accepted OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Susser Holdings (Corpus Christi, TX).
There were two interviews. The first interview was a phone interview. This consisted of regular general questions regarding the job and the work you were about to do. Nothing out of the ordinary. The second interview was with the actual supervisor and the supervisor's boss. This included general questions as well. But the difference was that this interview was geared toward if you were going to be a fit for the team rather than drilling you on skills and qualifications.
- What can you offer to the company and this position? Answer Question
There was no negotiation on salary. That was all they would offer for the position and and unless you are desperate to find a job, don't take it. Or at least argue for a larger hourly rate. Salary was out of the question.
