    Pros

    The hourly pay is a little better then othe places.

    Cons

    Management offers no training even thought they promise to train you. Shifts are difficult because only one cashier on duty to do 10 things at once and hard to do when the line of upset customers are waiting to be attended to and only one person on duty. Most of the time the pumps do not work and the Murphy cards are always a hassle half the time they do not work alot of customer complaints. Registers are faulty they cut off during transactions and computers are usually down most of the time. When errors occur because of faulty equipment the cashier is blamed and then fired without consideration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to do the training for employees training that is promised when you are hired instead of being more interested in their bonuses. More hours for employees so that at least we can make a decent paycheck , they tend to cut hours on their whim. Less hours for employees more bonus money for management.

    I worked at Murphy Oil

    Pros

    The pay is above minimum wage. Managers work around your schedule if you are in school or if you're working more than one job. There is a tuition reimbursement program for college students. The managers and coworkers are friendly and easy to work with. Overall the job is fairly easy, if you can handle a fast-paced environment. They usually have the cheapest gas in the city.

    Cons

    Poor training. Due to the store being constantly filled with customers, no lunch break is given/allowed. The equipment doesn't work properly, which causes a lot of errors to be made; cashiers are usually blamed for these errors instead of the faulty equipment. There is a very high turn-over rate because: 1) employees quit due to the work environment being below satisfaction or 2) employees are fired for things out of their control. Upper management is more concerned about their bonuses than their employees. Due to the high turn over rate, there is usually only one cashier in the store and he/she is expected to man the entire store alone without a manager (or assistant manager) present. That one cashier is expected to do 10 things at a time; it's unrealistic because the gas station is crowded with customers 24/7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more concerned about the safety of your employees. Equipment should be inspected and/or upgraded to make sure employees are able to accurately serve customers. Communicate with store managers and cashiers to find out what can be done to improve customer service. Commend people for a job well done. Remember that if your employees aren't happy, your customers won't be happy. How about working a week in a store to see what it takes to run it.
