    Pros

    Not many pros to mention

    Cons

    Management doesn't focus on issues of importance. Only worry about things that are minor and of no real significance. They screw up pay checks every week and take forever to finally pay employees their money.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time actually learning your own business from the ground up and learn your own company policies. Pay people acuturately and on time.

    I worked at Sunoco part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, there are several different shifts to choose from especially if you are working at a 24 hour Sunoco Plus. There are some good benefits if you are a student, or end up being full time, or at a supervisory position. Not a bad company if you find the right management.

    Cons

    Management needed some work on how they encouraged their good talent to stay. Many good people left due to being under appreciated by management. The manager had no idea how handle employee situations. employees left because they were putting in hard work, but not getting the recognition or pay they deserved. From an associates point of view, the company did not value their employees because of how management treated their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs better training on how to effectively deal with employee relations, and how to encourage a collaborative work environment.
