    Pros

    Provided with company care and expense account. Lodging, when in reason, during travel was not questioned. Hampton, holiday inn express, was the usual accommodations. Geographically diverse and allowed for relocation if you were interested.

    Cons

    While being told need to tighten expenses
    Locations literally not being allowed to buy toilet tissue. Millions of dollars being paid to keep executives from quiting.

    Advice to Management

    Change was inevitable. Can't speak to current situation as the company has been purchased by circle k. I have heard good things about the circle k company.

    Pros

    Nice building in Cary, NC Location.

    Cons

    Listen to your people! The gaps in pay should not be so great or paying those with no experience in their job high amounts because they suck up to the ELT.

    Advice to Management

    Seeing they all left with huge packages and screwed all the workers when they sold the company to Circle K
