    I have been working at GPM Investments full-time

    Pros

    GPM is a fast growing company that has a lot of opportunity for advancement. As with any company, there is room for improvement, but the current management seems to listen to the employees. They did a survey and asked for feedback from us to make this a better place to work. Its good to work for a growing company.

    Cons

    It's a lot of work running a convenience store. Sometimes its hard to get good people to work for you. But I get support from my manager when I need help

    Advice to Management

    Better security measures, and having 2 people on shift from 11 p.m. on.

    I have been working at GPM Investments part-time

    Pros

    My Store Manager has been trying her best to get me paid

    Cons

    I've worked for GPM for the past 6 weeks, 2 pay periods have come and gone and I still haven't been paid!! I can't afford to work for Free!

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees in a timely manor. The CEO and Payroll people get their pay, your employees deserve the same respect!! You wouldn't work for Free so why do you expect us to?

    Get on the same page, pay honest wages, support your people and pay enough attention to your DMs to ensure their directives follow the law, as a start.

    I worked at GPM Investments full-time

    Pros

    I try to find the positive in all things but honestly there is absolutely nothing positive about this company.

    Cons

    The first con is that they actually have people to come on this site and write fake reviews. If you see anything positive on this site about this company, just know it is probably a complete and utter lie. If you enjoy being bullied and intimidated then it's the perfect place to work. The pay is awful and so are the benefits. The office is led by a group of people who care nothing about the employees. It's an environment where it's okay for management to carry on inappropriate relationships with their subordinates. Married or not. If you love second hand smoke, just hang out in the back of the building at the corporate office where many convene at 10:15 AM, 12:00 PM, and 3:00 PM and anytime in between. They spend more time smoking than working and then wonder why they can't get their jobs done but yet expect others to be delegated their workloads because they're so far behind. I could go on and on but I thinks this says enough. If you ever are approached by this company in regards to employment opportunities do yourself a favor and run. Run fast.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO is actually really nice but unfortunately not around enough to know what's really going on. He should just terminate the entire leadership and management teams and start over. It will be the best business decision he could ever make. He has too much trust in people that don't have his company's best interest at heart.

    Pros

    I really enjoy working for GPM Investments! I work at the Corporate office which is in Richmond, Virginia and I work under a great and caring management team. My co-workers embody the truest spirit of teamwork and I have been working for GPM Investments for about 6 months now and I truly feel like I am where I belong. GPM Investments is constantly growing and they are so innovative. Senior management is always thinking of ways to help make their employee’s feel appreciated and supported. GPM Investments is also continuously growing and I am as well just by working for them. There is a lot of room for growth and opportunities here at GPM Investments and a reassuring feeling of job stability.

    Cons

    At this time I cannot find any Cons about working for GPM Investments.

    I worked at GPM Investments full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The turn over of managers is high, so basically any one can be a manager or do the work of a manager. Pay is low.

    Cons

    Just about add stores and letting them go in the ground. Cut hours to single coverage, not able to do any cleaning, stocking or basic things like sweeping lot, cleaning pumps, stocking cooler. i was at my store for 8 years before GPM, since i left the store has had 7 managers and i have only been gone 10 months.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people.
