    I have been working at Murphy USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company pays well, yearly trips to Disney World, great commission program.

    Cons

    Very minimal hours, upper management expects you to work more that the required 50 hours in order to get all tasks completed rather than allowing you the hours that are required. in some stores the store manager is the cashier for the majority of the day. Murphy has gone from a very people company to a numbers company. Managers have been waiting for years to become a District Manager yet company keeps out sourcing instead of promoting from with in.

    Advice to Management

    Need to allow the stores the hours that are required in order to successfully run the business and complete all the tasks that are required. We cant manage the business when were spending the majority of our day cleaning, stocking coolers/ sales floor and cleaning fuel pumps. Focus on promoting from with in so that Store Managers feel like they have a future with the company instead of it being a job to get by until we find something better out there and move on.

    Pros

    Meeting great customers daily, being able to move around, and having great employees to work with. Not too many more pros due to major changes from the corporate office. The company is caring less and less about the employees but care more about money.

    Cons

    No lunches, barely breaks. Work alone often, constantly cleaning up after customers, drive offs, keeping up with SOPs, and hours being cut because of new procedures. Pay isn't that great for the risk we are putting our life's in.

    Advice to Management

    Come work a day at one of the store locations and see for yourself how difficult it is to have great customer service, complete all SOPs, upsell constantly, and complete most of the daily chore task alone.

    Pros

    Great culture w excellent leadership. Communication was better than most organizations I've worked for. Lots of training and development including tuition reimbursement. The benefits were very good. Was the best experience I've ever had.

    Cons

    Lots of shooting from the hip and knee jerk policy changes. Little testing on new processes rolled out. Expense control wasn't a priority and hurt profitability.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the people. Great company to work for.

    Pros

    Good organization at the upper levels, my District Manager was always helpful.

    Cons

    This company is trying to get the most work with not as much money going to the employees, I understand that plan but sometimes they would take it to the extreme

    Advice to Management

    Think about ways to retain employees, if you can't do that something is amiss.

    Pros

    You get to make your own schedule which allows you to schedule around your life
    Pay isn't awful
    That's about it

    Cons

    You aren't prepared for the chaos that comes with running a store during your training
    Awful work life balance
    Your time is treated as if it's not important
    You can't ever take time off
    No breaks
    You deal with all the chaos pretty much alone- no help
