On your feet kind of job with different tasks each day
Cashier (Former Employee), San Antonio, FL – March 27, 2014
Pros: great starting ground for those who are fast learners
Cons: i don't remember any benefits, but the company has changed since i worked there.
I worked in the C-Store side. Each day I worked there, I was assigned to a different task from small to large. This, being my first job, I loved learning how much I want a career that provided me this kind of work environment. I had loved being given a different task that I could complete within my shift's allotted time each day. The crew was friendly – more... and the GM I had at the time was really nice which made me not as nervous. The hardest part of the job would definitely have to be customer service. This is because of such the variety of people that I would aid, I wouldn't know the needs I would need to meet. Some of them were none of my control but some were easy as pie! The most enjoyable part of the job was having a team of people teach me everything I needed to know which gave me a great outlook on work. This caused me to have a love for my job rather than only doing my tasks for the paycheck. Which in-turn, caused my tasks to be finished with my best effort rather than what I felt like doing. – less

Cashier (Current Employee), North East, MD – March 3, 2014
Pros: break time
As a cashier you are expected to maintain a list of things, most of which you can not do while being the only cashier while the store is busy. You are expected to pay for all of your food and/or drink, however you are provided with one 50% off discount on only certain items, and only when you are on the clock. The lower management are not hard to get – more... along with, however the higher management seems to be unfair towards certain workers. The best part of the job is that you receive two ten minute breaks along with one 30 minute break. – less
Cashier/ Sales Associate (Former Employee), Sulphur Springs, TX – February 18, 2014
Pros: discounts on lunches
Cons: short breaks if any, short lunches, ever changing schedule
While this is a very fast paced job there is not a whole lot of support from management. Breaks are few and short while lunch is only 30 minutes. Manager asks for certain tasks to be done but does not give the wherewithal to implement them. Schedule changes all week long insure you never know when or if you are working. Very difficult place to work. – more... Loved the clientele and other team members. – less
Cashier (Former Employee), Amarillo, TX – February 4, 2014
Pros: fun people, good boss
Cons: good timed breaks, understanding bosses, good co-workers
Overall, it was a good work environment. But with the type of personality I have, it just didn't match a good truck-stop worker's personality. Basically, I wasn't "tough enough" to work there. Rude truckers that came in frequently really got to me and got under my skin with their rude and degradeful comments.
Shift Leader (Former Employee), New Haven, Indiana – February 1, 2014
Pros: learning experience.
Cons: work hours and schedule, work atmosphere
Met some managers that were really good at what they did and learned a lot from them (well most of them). Good experience that did help me find out what I am made of and what I should expect from an employer But............. Pretty sure the person who wrote the previous review about this location is from pilot falling j corporate, I worked there almost – more... a year DID NOT see the owner or hear about the owner coming through once (only been open a little over a year), went through three general manager changes, managers were dropping like flies, regional manager (you looked for his car when you pulled up so you could know how awful your day was going to be) was there almost every week making you walk on egg shells because you did not know who he was going to fire next, employee retention is horrible new cashier new waitress new sandwich maker every two weeks. Seldom did I ever get off on my scheduled time or even got all my breaks.
I hope that not all locations are like this.
I should have quit sooner than I did, especially when they were indicted for fraud. – less
General Manager (Current Employee), New Haven, IN – January 28, 2014
Pros: compensation and advancements
Cons: long hours
This is the best company I have worked for since I started my career in restaurants and retail. I have learned numerous things during my time with Flying J. They care about you and your family and offer great benefits and compensation. Even though they are demanding of your time they make up for it in every other area. If you work hard, stay engaged, – more... and dedicate your talent everyday, the rewards are great for not only you but your family. They do not require I lot of paperwork and reports. Instead they want your time to be working along with your staff and your guests, which in my opinion should be every company's primary goal. The management staff is the best I have ever worked for. The are never shy with their time, are always available, willing to help, supportive, and treat you with the up most respect. Even the owner of the company stops into to his buildings just to say hi and give a personal thank you for all your time and hard work. I have enjoyed and look forward to going to work everyday. – less
