I would receive the products from each vender that came in that day and stock what was needed. I learned how to keep a good inventory as well as drive a forklift. I made some good friends and the management is just like everywhere else some good some bad.
Paid every friday, set hours.
No lunch break, no set days, didn't know work schedule until the week of
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Madisonville, TX – May 13, 2015
I love working at Buc-ees, I work the 6-2 morning shift and it works with my life balance very well. I have the rest of the day to do whatever I need to have done. I have gained more customer experience as well as money handling. I have been very familiar with customer service experience and money handling for 7 years.
Maintenance (Former Employee) – Madisonville, TX – May 12, 2015
I truly enjoyed working at a place customers loved to visit. My co-workers and managers are like family and encouraged me the whole time I was working and attending school. My managers was very understanding and was very flexible with my schedule so that I could be able to focus on school and get my full 40 hours and overtime when possible. I learned how to work under pressure, time management, increased my communication skills, how to be a better co-worker and leader, importance of quality over quantity, how to be a good manager, and how important great customer service is.
Fast-paced and energetic coworkers and stable management
Food Service Employee (Former Employee) – New Braunfels, TX – January 11, 2015
I provided great customer service and handled food preparation in the early mornings. I learned to keep a positive attitude and helped wherever needed. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with others. The management was stable and willing to work with you on scheduling, if attending school.
no sitting only standing for 8 hours only 5 minutes for break to eat.
Cashier (Current Employee) – New Braunfels, TX – October 27, 2014
Being a cashier is fine, but you have to clean the restrooms and run the coffee bar every two weeks for 8 hours straight. you only get five minutes to eat , there are no breaks other than the 5 minutes. you have to stand for 8 hours straight. The work as a cashier is fun, but bathrooms and coffee bar are yukky. Coworkers are great. I learned to ask a boatload of question when I interview.
5 minutes for lunch, and cleaning bathrooms is yukky
Cashier (Current Employee) – Angleton, TX – May 7, 2014
My managers are awesome at their jobs they work very well with everyone's needs while still making sure everything is done in the way it should be. I have learned a lot dealing with the public but some of the key things' I have learned are patients and quick problem solving. There really are no difficult parts to my job there all basically common sense. The most enjoyable part is working with the public.
Deli Clerk (Current Employee) – Luling, TX – December 1, 2013
Typical day at work would include cooking required food needed. Deep cleaning on slow days. Basically its like a resturant type of buisness. Involves communicating and proper care for the custmors and there needs. My job requires team work so me and my co-workers do all we can to get things done. The hardest part of the job can be the amount of business we attract on certain holidays. The busyness is insane but we all contribute and maintain it. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people. We have so many great people come in and out of our faciltiy which always brightens my day.
We have about 500 cars that come through the car wash on any bright and beautiful day. The atmosphere is great and the guys I work with are friends for life. I handle the customer service part of the job which includes helping people with there cars getting them on the track, helping with any questions they have about the place, and always showing them my smile. We also repair and stay later if we have to. The hardest part of this job is the weather. It can get a bit hot our or really cold. The most enjoyable part is seeing customers smile back at me from the excellent customer service I try and give.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Lake Jackson and Pearland Texas – October 21, 2013
At Buc-ees there is always something to do. It is a good feeling at the end of the day when you have worked a good productive shift. Since of pride and satisfaction. At Buc-ees I learned a lot about working in a professional environment. Learned more about the administrative side of running a business at Buc-ees than in my entire career. As a manager I am always there for my employees, after all they are the ones on the front line taking care of customers and making the overall experience for the customers the best it can be. On the other side of that I do rid of the problem employee, as they bring down the rest of the staff. There was never anything hard about the job. At the end of the day it is all about getting the job done. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the customers. After a period of time I get to know the regulars and interact with them on a daily basis hopefully to make their day a little better than it was before they walked in.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Gonzales, TX – June 17, 2013
I start off my night very busy and there was always some type of job that needed to be done. My manger was a great lady and so were my co-workers. The hardest part of my job was working overnight. I love learning new things
Deli Clerk (Current Employee) – Madisonville, TX – May 6, 2013
A typical day is generally ok, there may be some irritant from management from time to time but overall it is generally pretty smooth. There is not much to learn at work other than the job at hand, there is no room to advance here, it is basically an over-sized fast food joint. Management is clueless, not to say they're mean or disrespectful, just clueless as how to properly manage a business and it's employees. The hardest part of the job would be dealing with the managers. I was honestly told once, by a manager, NOT to show initiative. If I'm not mistaken, I believe that's what managers like to see is it not? I should not be expected to stand around and wait for an order, rather I should see what needs to be done and take action, but obviously this is not the case here. And lastly the most enjoyable part of the job is getting to see and communicate with my fellow friendly co-workers on the job.
good salary, flexable schedule
bad management, favoritism, no benefits, ever fluxuating schedule
Fast paced environment dealing with diverse group of people
Cashier/sales associate (Former Employee) – Eagle Lake, TX – August 28, 2012
It is a good company to work for if you are a manager. They are the only ones that receive benefits and salary type pay. Also it is good in the sense that it pays well if it is located in small town like it was in mine. I did learn to develop social skills and how to interact with many different kinds of people. Management was strict at the location where I worked, but the only good thing about that was that I worked over night so I never really had to deal with that aspect. The hardest part of my job was having to complete tasks while teaching new people the ropes. The most enjoyable part was getting the chance to meet so many people an becoming friends with so many.
cool/clean environment, freedom to express ones self
Deli Shift Leader (Current Employee) – Lake Jackson, TX – April 2, 2012
I love my job. Its a very fun working place and you meet a lot of people form all over while they are traveling. I'm a shift leader so while we like to have fun at work so it not just board. I also have to make use everyone is doing what needs to be done and not just having fun and acting up.
