    Pros

    Buc-cee's has a great image and takes pride in it. They screen their applicants carefully as they know their employees will exude their professional image

    Cons

    None at this time. This is a new store in Temple, Texas. Some applicants are complaining of their stringent screening process.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Happy that management takes the time to hire the right candidate to match the job and job duties

  2. Great experience, mostly due to management staff.

    Pros

    Management staff at the store was friendly and helpful. Once that relationship is created, work becomes much more enjoyable.
    Great pay for an hourly job.

    Cons

    A lot of busy work
    Long hours with no real breaks
    Constantly being watched by corporate with cameras everywhere
    Incredibly strict policy on tardiness

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up on the tardiness policy. It seems a little too intense. Try to gain that personal relationship with every employee because it makes to work experience that much better.

  3. Decent job for students

    Pros

    If you have great customer service skills, then this is the place for you. They have good hours to work, scheduling was great. If I had to take off, it wasn't a problem.

    Cons

    When you are trained for a cashier position, you are trained not only at the register, but for the bathrooms, samples, and coffee bar. You are used as someone that knows how to do everything. Not a problem, but i would have rather been on the register. Also, you are given a 5 minute or less break to eat, and you have to eat standing at the register.

    Pros

    -The Pay: $12.75/hr
    -Full time hours

    Cons

    -Management very rude and disrespectful
    -Hard to get time off
    -Never off on weekends
    -Rules are always changing so you end up doing something wrong

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees more, quit treating the store like a revolving door. CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM IS HUGE!!! Quit just giving people hard criticism on what they do wrong, let them know what they are doing well.

  8. No sitting places

    Pros

    Has unique items, nice bathrooms, and large selection of refreshments.

    Cons

    No sitting areas for those who buy food or older visitors. Most locations are large enough to put tables or chairs somewhere, inside or out!

    Advice to Management

    Have rest area style sitting somewhere.

    Pros

    Workers are friendly, $12 /hr, management is great they let you know when youre doing a good job, everything is easy to learn, $12 /hr, always learning something new, Oh! and $12 /hr!!!!←←←←

    Cons

    Too much cleaning, I guess. There's nothing bad about this job. It just gets really annoying when you're trying to get things done, and management is behind you asking you to clean. Hahaha

    Advice to Management

    For high expectations, you need more workers. Good workers!

    Pros

    Co-Workers Are Great
    Pay is Above $10
    Full-Time Always Gets 40 Hours
    Free Drinks
    Everyone Pulls Their Own Weight

    Cons

    Management Micromanages (They Have Video and Audio of You)
    10 Minute Lunch Break Standing Up
    Co-Workers Will Out You if Your Break is Too Long

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees put their own spin into the company. I kept getting in trouble of saying "have a great day", rather than saying "thank you". Also, put a little trust in them. you don't have to have audio of them speaking. That's just crazy. Also, care more for your customers. I like how y'all trust them to not steal, but buy some park benches , so they can eat their food. Y'all use the excuse of "we're just a convenience store", yet y'all have shopping carts. Overall, just know that your workers and your customers are HUMAN BEINGS! Give your employees longer breaks, since they are standing all day. Or at least give the employees a real break room with chairs. Just don't give them a 5'X5' "break room" in the warehouse.

    good pay , weekly pay

    Cons

    Management NEVER on the same page. They do NOT work as a team

    Advice to Management

    Try working as one, not individuals. Too many employee's there to not be united...
