I worked at Pilot Flying J full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The pros for this company is the variety of duties you perform. I love how fast paced it is and you never have down time where you're standing around with nothing to do.

Cons

Numerous drivers hitting on you. If you can't take a joke don't work here. Management switches all the time.

Advice to Management

Be friendly, it goes a long way. Especially since your truck drivers would like conversation since they are on the road all the time.

    I have been working at Pilot Flying J full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paid vacation for full-time employees no matter what job type.
    Medical, dental, vision, even life insurance benefits available within first year of employment, full or part-time.
    Mandatory breaks (two 10 minute paid breaks, one 30 minute non-paid lunch).
    Company perfectly willing to pay you if you're actually willing to work.
    True opportunity for advancement in the purest sense (start as Cashier, promoted to Team Lead, Shift Lead, Store Manager, General Manager, District Manager, etc.).
    Perfect chance to meet people from every state, every country, and every walk of life. Literally. Great job if you like people and know multiple languages.

    Cons

    Very high volume (Truckers always drive), very quick paced (Truckers have deadlines), combined with radio chatter in one ear and customer chatter in the other means for relatively high stress.
    Company's strive for perfection, while admirable, and usually achievable, can sometimes be downright bothersome, especially during peak hours and days and months (1 week before Thanksgiving Day to 3 days after New Years is MURDER).
    Customers can sometimes be outright mean at times.


  2. "Low wages, unreasonable expectations"

    Good benefits for part time employees.

    Hourly wages are low, and work load is high for maintenance personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Get some real expectations for your employees, we're not robots.
