Pros

Some benefits, some people are great to work with, and for now you don't have to pay for drive offs.

Cons

As a cashier you are required to do way more work than a cashier should. If you are promised promotions it never happens. You work 8 to 12 hour shifts and never get even a 15 minute break, not even to use the restroom. This should be illegal!!! You are told if you want to use the bathroom, lock the door and go but hope nobody steals anything and you don't have a drive off while your gone. When you get back all the customers are rude and throwing their money at you and not telling you what pump they are at. The District Manager just looks at you as a number not a person. We had a ice storm this year and she expect us to make it there on time although the weather channel and the local police station said it is not safe for anyone to be on the road for a few hours. When accounting comes in they never look at their calculator they just type and say that we are missing items and or store gets a bad score and when we do inventory the next day its all there but the score sticks. You are required to upsell even if the people scream at you because they don't want it.

Advice to Management

All employees should recieve a 15 minute break at least twice a day. All district managers should be required to work at each of their stores once a month on a friday or a saturday night for a full shift by themselves. so they can see how it really is. Employees should receive higher pay if they are required to do more work than a cashier is entitled to.

    Pros

    Good pay, company car. great fellow DM's

    Cons

    NO balance in life. 24/7 responsibility. Constant email and phone calls. Labor budget too tight to be able to serve the customers the way they should be served. Biggest problem is that the company is cutting most of their 45+ year-old DM's. This is so they can hire younger people for less dollars.

    Advice to Management

    People need a balanced life. Cutting your older DM's could cost the company.
