    I worked at U.S. Venture part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Building relationships in the community with the customers. The owner and managers at Us Oil was willing to do anything they could to make the employees happy in their positions.

    Cons

    We was not able to be scheduled for at least 36 hours a week. I feel that we should have been offered more hours instead of hiring so many part time extras.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of having 3 or 4 employees only scheduled for 16 or 20 hours per week I feel that the full time employees should have been offered those hours so that we could have the hours if we wanted them.

    Pros

    Steady, consistent work if you don't screw up and take advantage of the manager and store.

    Cons

    Not the most exciting work, physically demanding in some ways. Variety of hours but no real chance for Full Time unless you move to a managerial position.

    I have been working at U.S. Venture

    Pros

    Benefits and auto part discounts

    Cons

    No proper training programs, low pay, MICROMANAGEMENT, 1-3% raises ... if your lucky, old/poor on-site work equipment, understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a training program for employees and update technology in the workplace. Hire or
    TRAIN managers on people skills to develop employees ... team building exercises! Managers have poor management skill and most don't even have a bachelors degree to understand today's workplace and employees.
