      Pros

      Most of the customers are regulars and are very friendly.

      Cons

      I had no breaks and had to work all day shifts without being able to sit, eat, or go to the bathroom. Training was horrible and I had to work alone after just a few days. Things were unorganized and I was constantly being shuffled into different tasks without explanations. It was the longest application process I have ever been through, and I wish I had found a job somewhere else.

      Pros

      Competitive pay and benefits available. (401k, heatlh insurance, tution reimbusment if seeking a business degree, retention bonus after so many years) Company has good values and culture. Fast paced work enviroment for the most part. Good for interacting with people and developing cash handling and many other skills.

      Cons

      No breaks. Have to stand for hours on end. Only three holiday pay days a year. Hard to get over time if wanted. Might have to deal with people that my be unpleasant but, that comes with alot of jobs. May have to work alone if you work at a slow store since budget hours are lower.

      It's a solid company if you just need to pay your bills.

      Pros

      The company has good policies (and some silly ones like even the peons wear ties), there is easy camaraderie between the employees and management, they pay everyone decent wages. Most stores have an eatery of some kind, and most are 24/7 so it's easy to find a niche or try something else if you get bored. The usual benefits of gas station work apply; fast-paced without being murderous, you'll get lots of customer service experience, etc.

      Cons

      Absolutely no benefits for non-management positions. No "breaks" per se, since there are "dead periods" when you may rest. Of course that time is spent on side work, so it's not quite fair.

      Pros

      There are few I can think of, aside from the fact that the team members with whom I work are PHENOMENAL. We work as a team and really have each other's backs. In regards to the company, unless you are a full time employee there are few benefits *which i will review in the cons*

      Cons

      Cons... 1) No breaks. You only get a break if you ask to go outside & smoke, which most of us don't even really smoke we just needed a break from standing on our feet for long hours. 2) Very little room for upward mobility or increase in pay 3) Sometimes ludicrous hours and strict overview on how many hours each store utilizes, etc. 4) Too many expectations for a gas station. Can't drink up front, can't eat up front, can't take breaks, didn't (until recently) get employee discounts on any food, only slight discounts on drinks The people I work with are great! The place? Could do better.

      Pros

      Okay pay, sometimes friendly customers, loved the regulars, close to home, nothing else really!

      Cons

      General manager didn't like showing up on time. Coworkers never ever do actual work. One person does all, (mostly night workers). Unnecessary rude customers. District Manager doesn't care about the workers. Lomg shifts by yourself, no breaks, barley can eat if in a busy area. Nasty place when started! And on top of that coworkers, and even management steals food/drinks.

      No professional leadership

      Pros

      Good job for someone with low skill sets and lack of education

      Cons

      Senior leadership at the SSC (Store Support Center) company headquarters make major decisions of how the stores are to be run while having no clue what a typical day in store is like. The company presents itself as wanting to be number one by 2021 in terms of being the best place to work. People at the store level are treated as though they are just leased equipment given no holiday's off, no breaks, and low pay while those working at the office in Iowa have non-monitored access to company provided recreational and sports facilities as well as alcohol on site. The company works to make sure that everyone at home office is nice and comfy while those working in the convenience stores don't even have a place to sit in the back on their break unless they sneak away to the carwash or somewhere out back during a slow period which is a luxury reserved for managers. EVERYONE is required by company policy to work holidays and you must agree to that to be hired. Only general managers are given select holidays off and even those are not guaranteed as GM's are underpaid and required as of this writing to be on call 24/7 and work a minimum 64 hours a week in the store by contract. While a general manager trainee I worked alongside several GM's that were at the store from 4:30am to 3 and sometimes 4pm daily.
