EIS (Current Employee) – West Texas – February 2, 2016
Management does whatever it takes to protect their production. Covering up spills, fudging numbers, etc was a way of life. I do not agree with this way of doing business. Nepotism and clicks seems to be "The Chevron Way" Witnessed many incidents where racism and favoritism were exhibited by management, causing one worker to quit on the spot over it.Nothing was done to stop it or as disciplinary action.
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Vancouver, WA – February 2, 2016
A typical day working at Chevron would consist of many things such as opening and closing the store, making all of the food through out the day, making coffee through out the day, helping customers, stocking shelves, pulling out of date items, training new employees, opening and closing the car wash, spraying down cars before they enter the car wash, and being polite and courteous to customers. While working at Chevron I learned many things, a few of those things I learned are how to rotate items on shelves, how the gas pumps worked, and how to check inventory. Working at Chevron I had some of the best co-workers that I have ever worked with, besides some bad apples we had the best team an employee could ask for, everyone I worked with was very hardworking, very team oriented. They made working at a gas station fun and enjoyable. The hardest part about working at Chevron was the hours. I was hired to be the night supervisor so I planned everything around the hours I was going to be working, I planned childcare, life, bills, etc. But unfortunately I was not given the hours I was hired for, and that made my home life very difficult. The management at chevron was decent. I absolutely loved my supervisor, who trained me, and worked with me almost everyday, she was patient, kind and understanding. My store manager was not the most understanding or caring women. She did not care about most of her employees, she would pick favorites, and be very rude to the other employees. She often blames everyone else for either her or someone else's mistakes. The owner of the store was a verymore... sweet man, he never talked down to his employees and often gave praise when needed. The most enjoyable part of this job was always staying busy, and my coworkers.less
No breaks, no healthcare, no time off, minimum wage, and no room to move up on the ladder.
Gas Attendant/Cashier (Former Employee) – The Dalles, OR – January 31, 2016
I generally worked 8-9 hour days Friday-Sunday. My boss was always really understanding of a changing schedule. My co-workers were hard working and very helpful and were always teaching me new things about the job and otherwise. I think going to work in general was the most enjoyable part of the job.

Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Dalton, GA – January 13, 2016
A ordinary day consist of - arriving with ample time to discuss with other team members any problems they may have encountered. Counting cash drawer to ensure tally is correct. Cleaning store,stocking shelves,dusting and checking various products to ensure customers receive products that are not expired or near "best if used by date". Management is always available either in person or by phone. My co-workers are all friendly and helpful. Hardest part of my day is end of night closing when customer comes in at end closing time of day. My most enjoyable part is interaction with customers.
meeting new people and support of co-workers and management
no healthcare and not enough hours; no little or no room for advancementmnt.
Plus: A great emphasis is on safety first. All employees and contractors have Stop Work Authority without negative consequences when unsafe behavioral work practices are observed. Also a great diversity of employees and employee networks. Fitness Center in building.
safety culture, diversity, employee benefits, great cafeteria, in-house fitness center
Athough they won't admit it, favoritism plays some role in promotion and selection, not much lateral advancement movement without "knowing someone"

always nice to have frequent customers asking about how you're doing and showing that they appreciate your service. Also good to go to work knowing that you have a great bond with your manager and coworkers
