    I worked at Texaco full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was really really really awesome, fantastic, fun, and informative to work at Texaco in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.

    Cons

    The company no longer exists, so you can't get a job there any more, so there are no cons to speak of.

    Advice to Management

    I can't think of anything to say to management other than it was pretty good to work there back in the day.

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

    Pros

    - Good, steady part time job while going to college.
    - Was able to work independently.
    - When it's slow -and all duties like stocking, cleaning, etc- were completed I could study and do homework. I don't usually waste down time by playing with smartphone.
    - Added valuable customer service skills -that I can take to any future jobs- and handling money, balancing till.
    - I actually had this job decades ago, but 2014 is the oldest year available to select in this app.

    Cons

    - Cleaning toilets
    - Dealing with occasional drunk, belligerent or spiteful people
    - Minimum wage
