I have been working at Western Convenience
Pros – Flexible
You learn a lot about customer service
You learn about how a corporation works
Other Employees are usually fun
Cons – Corporate and Managers are hardly on the same page
Some Managers are lazy - seen most stores
Advice to Senior Management – Try to focus on the employees more, the office is not as important as the people that run the stores

I worked at Western Convenience full-time for more than a year
Pros – Customers
Great place to learn about how a gas station works.
Good for a short term job (less than a year).
Cons – Corporate Drama
No Communication between corporate, DMs, and stores
Tons of Miscommunication
System would constantly freeze up
Bookkeepers at corporate don't know what they are doing
Horribly run company.
Advice to Senior Management – Communicate better between EVERYONE at corporate. Corporate needs to communicate to stores better. DMs need to communicate to stores better. Multiple times I was told by one executive to do something one way, then 2 weeks later another executive would come in and scold me for doing it that way. Communication is key.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
