    It was great. It was easy money. It was low-stress.

    Former Employee - Cashier in Jacksonville, FL

    Pros

    It was low-stress. There are several opportunities to move up. There are lots of nuances but they're easy as you get more experienced.

    Cons

    Low wage positions. In about 3 years, one received 3 raises in increments of .30 cents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We should receive a higher minimum wage for example $10.10. And we should receive more better raises and benefits for part-time and full-time workers.

    Pros

    Liked my manager.
    Worked with nice people.
    Room for advancement.
    They have a program that will pay for your schooling.

    Cons

    Customers (lol)
    When I was working there they had started cutting back on over time.
    No breaks.
    3rd shift doesn't get paid a differential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't cry poor but at the same time build new stores.

    Current Employee - Tanker Driver  in  Jacksonville, FL
    Current Employee - Tanker Driver in Jacksonville, FL

    Pros

    As a tanker driver, you get a good pay for the area, descent benefits, raises, bonus, and time off. The only downside is that start is the night shift, and hard to get to days... or get weekends off...

    Cons

    Don't get into mini-tanker division. Once you're there -- you're stuck forever. !!! Unless you enjoy driving them,,, lousy money and low hours!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well, I wish that management would give some recognition to drivers based on their merits; although I know that you can't expect much from a trucking job other than the means to pay bills and feed a family... Sad but true!
    Management is doing great job! Just couple of things: don't hire too many drivers, and provide enough work for the once you've got so far! Revert to the previous bonus structure~! Current bonus structure does not provide sufficient incentive for safety!

    Current Employee - Fuel Transport Driver
    Current Employee - Fuel Transport Driver

    Pros

    Local work and home daily good benefits pre planned loads you knew what was on your dispatch before your shift starts

    Cons

    Worked nights and weekends for a whole year and more . The drivers there don't work together as a team its like every man for themself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be interactive with the employees and provide better schedules or a rotating schedule so all drivers cn have a chance to have weekends off now and then.
