    Pros

    Great way to start learning about jobs and being responsible. Being on time, doing your part and trusting your co-workers is exactly what I learned here

    Cons

    Promotions are not often and mostly who is the favorite among the workers. Sometimes favoritism can really put a damper on your continued positivity and overall dedication to the work place.

    Pros

    People are great to work with for independent worker. Do your work and they leave you be. No micromanaging.

    Cons

    Nothing that jumps out at me. A little training would have been nice but overall nothing to negative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't keep temps so long. Hire them or get rid of them.

    The Sunoco board brought in new senior management to break up the company. The new company's culture could change with purchase by ETP.

    Former Employee - Clerk  in  Gettysburg, PA
    Former Employee - Clerk in Gettysburg, PA

    Pros

    Part-time positions are easy to find because of constant turnover. Several locations within easy commute distance. If they need bodies the will work with your schedule.

    Cons

    You're under the gun and a camera constantly. There are few short breaks and staffing levels are always short. Hours can be unpredictable and calling in sick may get you fired. Trust no one as it can get rather cutthroat at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more appreciation to good employees. Everyone isn't a thief.
