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

Pros

I enjoyed building rapport with the customers and employees, but you get that in any retail setting.

Cons

Like the rest of the retail world, salary means you work a lot of hours. I did average about 50 most of the time, but some weeks were 60-70. The pay is not great- I made a lot more at Walgreens for the same position. The corporate support system is not that good. The computers are always having some kind of problem- some issues go on for months without being addressed. We had 30 year old gas pumps that the techs had problems finding parts for. They were constantly messing up and it frustrated the customers. It was frustrating listening to the complaining from the customers when it wasn't our fault. The employees' pay was pitiful. This led to high turnover. They cut hours during the winter, so everyone had to get used to making less money during this season. Not really fair in my opinion

Advice to Management

For this business model to work, you have to have good people and keep them. $8 an hour gives you no chance of doing this.

    I have been working at Pilot Flying J full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    i really do not have anything positive to say about this company

    Cons

    very low wages, over worked, extremely poor store management, they hire managers that do not have common sense, no benefits, constant changing schedules, no loyalty to their employees, express your opinion you will be fired

    Advice to Management

    pay attention to the employees in the store because if it wasn't for them you wouldn't have a job
