I have been working at Murphy Oil

Pros

Fast paced work environment.Freedom to help build your business the sky is the limit if you are willing to work 12 hours or more a day.

Cons

There is not time enough in the day to get everything done.The core values only pertain sometimes when it is convenient.Pay is minimal.By the time you pick up the shifts from your staff when they call off because there is no overtime aloud,paint your site,do the mulching and trimming,maintenance on all the pumps and still run the register for 35 hours a week you are well over the 45 hours you were told that was required.If you have a dm that wants to make bonus you will be underpaid.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Help your stores,spend more time with them,teach them,value them and let them know it instead of barking orders.

    I have been working at Murphy Oil

    Pros

    Pays more than most available (no degree required) jobs right now. Company sincerely cares about customers (compared to most companies today).

    Cons

    New rules and policies every time you come into work. Drive offs are put on you but you can't call the police to stop the ones that do it over and over or you'll be fired. Managers put everything on everyone so they can sit on their butt and then brag when they change the trash or stock the coolers. Constant promises of promotions that never come. Senior management tries to micromanage and get burnt out to the point that you are terrified to see them because of what may come. You will be told over and over where to go if you have a problem but nobody cares when you come to them. Serious problems are ignored and very small problems will get you fired. Managers refuse to ride surveys, get the major things you are out of or cover when someone calls off. If you are a good employee, you won't ever have a day off without being called in for something and you'll never receive praise. District managers like to pick at little things like making sure every pop in the coolers is facing forward (what a waste of time). OH! and the new pants rule. Nobody wants to be uncomfortable at work. Shirts are completely understandable, but everybody fits in pants differently and to tell employees they have to be uncomfortable or self conscious instead of letting them wear their own is ridiculous. Khakis are khakis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what is going on in your stores. If employees are unhappy, find out why. Praise them if they are doing well and make sure management is doing their jobs. Promote those that are doing well and demote those that are not. I know your job is to make sure things run smoothly, but you can't understand a lot of the little things unless you've worked as a cashier.

    I have been working at Murphy Oil

    Pros

    You get to meet new people everyday, i like having the insurance in case i need it and the employees are nice.

    Cons

    Well the down side is that i always have to work nights and i really wish that would change soon and give me more hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The advice i would give is that all employees should have around the same hours instead of giving me the minimum amount.
