    I worked at Sunoco full-time

    Pros

    As an employee, flexible scheduling. 2 weeks paid vacation after one year full time.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a career in management, keep looking and do not choose this route. This was the most unrewarding and unfulfilling career I have ever had. . Given vacation and sick days, but cannot ever take it. Work an unheard of amount of hours to the point of severe sleep deprivation. For an employee, not bad if you like doing the job of 3 because they are never staffed. Their training is a joke. If you like to voice your opinion, this is not the place. They do not care what you think.

    Advice to Management

    Either put up and shut up or get out. Seriously, if they do not like your ideas/opinions ,you will suffer retaliation. There are much better jobs out there, do not be afraid to look before it's too late. Quit babying your staff because you fear they will quit. They are going to quit either way. Reward for extra efforts is fine, but do not go beyond that.

    Great pay, great benefits. Love the atmosphere and I my boss is great.

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.
