    Pros

    They do offer low gas prices.

    Cons

    Poor working conditions. Have to work at night alone and perform outside duties without proper lighting or security. Have to wait until completely vacated to run to the outside bathroom and eat lunch between customers. Didn't even have a chair to sit while working the kiosk.

    Advice to Management

    You can't legally have employees working without any breaks, especially lunch.

    Pros

    All in all its a great place to be. Great people, freedom within job, laid back culture.

    Cons

    Cronyism is the name of the game here. If you don't have the right friends you are stuck. But if you get picked to be one of the in crowd you are set. If you just blend in here thats all you'll ever do. Pay is wildly disparate with sometimes those without college degrees making triple digits, well over better educated people. Career advancement is tough.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent. Stop installing all of your yes men to serve your own needs. Stop hiring yes men or promoting them into management. Trust your subordinates to manager their teams and stop dictating hiring decisions.

    None a job to pay bills barely

    Cons

    very unorganized and have no clue about day to day scheduling and training

    Advice to Management

    be less confusing training and communication needs improvement and think I would of been a loyal employee if I was trained properly and had been able to have hours that were sensible to making a living

    Pros

    I was lucky enough to have an awesome manager who cared about her employees.

    Cons

    The company itself cares about the money...not employees!!! The managers job was always on the line due to impractical rules of the company, as were the employees.Most of the work is done outside,which means very hot in the summer and extremely cold in the winter...especially in the middle of blizzards!!!

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    The pay is better than average. There are some people that are pleasant to work with. That's about where the pros stop.

    Cons

    I'll start with the basics. Terrible benefits/ health insurance. Add to that an unprofessional executive management staff which trickles down to the group managers. On top of that you have office politics. If you are not well liked or disagree with upper management you can kiss your job goodbye. I have seen many people take "early retirement" or moved to different departments just because they disagreed or were not liked by the right person and were scapegoats for unfortunate events. Terrible!

    Advice to Management

    This is a top down driven company. There must be better management. What is in place is not working and ineffective.

    Pros

    Job Opportunities Able to have Manager work with you when it is needed for Doctor Appointments

    Cons

    Medical Insurance For Hourly Employees Raises for Hourly Employees

    Advice to Management

    Need to check on your Managers a little closer. Some of them get away with a lot of crap. Also when you put out Holiday Calendar we are told that Cashiers get Holiday Pay for Christmas and that is not true.

    Pros

    Oppurtunity to meet new people.

    Cons

    Terrible management. One company, but different departments are treated very differently. Job is very very stressful and not worth the pay! The hours are AWFUL. Not enough employees, seniority does not mean much, and there is constant unfair treatment. They tend to bring in inexperienced management to try to "implement" things, but this fails. There is a lack of communication and also they have their "picks and chooses". If you're not one of them, don't expect to be treated the same. People are quick to say, "yes I want to work for Murphy", but you will be surprised what's on the other side of those doors.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring inexperienced management. Put more time into choosing someone better fit for a job. We had a manager who knew absolutely nothing about her own department. Take the time to actually hear your employees. There is no sense in having HR meetings for change, only to have enployees rant, but you don't actually listen to a word they say. All I can say is BETTER MANAGEMENT. I can not stress that enough or your turn over will continue to get worse.
