    Former Employee - Clerk in Gettysburg, PA

    I worked at Sunoco part-time (less than an year)

    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.

    Learned a lot in the refineries, lots of great people, but the company was rocked by the recession

    Former Employee - Process Engineer in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at Sunoco full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are great and I was given a lot of responsibility. Definitely learned more here than with other oil refiners. Some of that had to do with it being a lean organization following the lay offs. Love the location of Philadelphia.

    Cons

    There was a disconnect between the refineries and upper management. This made sense since they eventually sold off or shut down all of the refineries. Busy periods would lead to long hours and this was sometimes quite unpredictable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company mission was talked about yet it did not ever seem to come to fruition.
