    Pros

    Decent pay and average benefits/medical.

    Cons

    No company transparency. Dishonest upper management. No retirement health benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Get off the sinking ship, Lynn is taking the company down. Will Sunoco survive on hot-dogs, sodas and imported gas?

    Pros

    People. At the same level or below, fellow employees are wonderful to work with and professional. Decent compensation and health benefits for the position

    Cons

    Being a woman, the challenges double in every aspect. Passed up for promotion, paid less than my fellow male peers, treated like my opinion/knowledge doesn't matter. They also like to play favorites. I've seen store managers lose their job over a $5 payout while another manager commits a crime and still has a job. Most of management bases their decisions on "personal" perspectives and "favorites" than the actual credentials a person has for any open position.

    Advice to Management

    There is no amount of advice that I could give that would improve how this company is handled.

    Pros

    Fair Salary and Great Benefits

    Cons

    Totally demeaning, abusive, bullying environment. New upper management had to be advised by the lowest management on how to operate the business. Three levels of management were missing, so the lowest management ran the entire show. When I was encouraged to report my abuse, I followed the "abuse reporting protocol " as listed on their website, and I was fired within three weeks. Security followed me in their official car until I was two miles away from the building.

    Advice to Management

    Four letter words and screaming at employees should not be the norm. Employees should not be fired for reporting vicious abuse.
