    Pros

    If you love driving to work in the snow when conditions are unsafe then this is the job for you.

    Cons

    Managers where I worked where uneducated morons. All of the ones I worked for originally have sense been fired so that says a lot.
    Made to come into work even when there is snow on the ground. Wrecked my car.
     If you are hired on as a cashier there is no way they will give you full time hours because they dont want to give you insurance benefits.
    Expected to come in on days off, told to come in to work when I had the flu. Not allowed to sit down on the graveyard shift, no matter how bad your feet hurt lol

    I worked at Murphy Oil full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Responsibility was pushed down and you were able to see the impact of your decisions on the company's bottom line. The people, in general, were great to work with. A lot was expected of their employees, but there was verbal and financial rewards with each success. I never saw anyone fired or demoted for making a mistake, unless it was repetitive.

    Cons

    None that are out of the ordinary for any company of this size in the oil and gas industry.
