Overworked and underpaid
Shift leader (Former Employee) –  New HampshireDecember 27, 2017
Stay away from Global, worst company you can work for. Upper management are a joke, half the time they don’t know what they are doing. You’ll, be asked to do something but they never explain or educate you on what is expected.

Barf
Full time (Former Employee) –  U S ADecember 20, 2017
Wanna get sick, and barf? Then go work for this company. The employees call out continuously, or they just don't show up and still have a job, wanna join a clique, then come work here cause if you're not in the clique then you'll be treated poorly. Wanna good laugh then watch management in action.The higher ups pop in on occasion acting like they know what's going on, but if you're hardly there then you hardly know anything
Hourly rate Isn't meant to keep people, it's a terrible wage. It's smarter to collect cans on the side of the rd then to work at this place
Pros
A toilet to barf in
Cons
The toilet probably hasnt been cleaned in a month

Outstanding company
VP Business Development & Sales, Branded Gasoline (Former Employee) –  Waltham, MANovember 17, 2017
Developed a sales team to market gasoline in New England through independent dealers which were branded by a major oil company. Each prospective customer required a large investment for pumps, tanks, canopy resulting in a long-term supply contract. In addition to new business we had to manage renewals of each account to ensure long-term growth.

Disorganized and unprofessional
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Rhode IslandNovember 8, 2017
The previous company I worked for was bought out by Global and since then, most have quit. They are very unorganized and unprofessional and do not care about the little guys. You are just a number.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
No perks, no holiday pay (unless you work it), to much corporate politics

This is a poor work area
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Concord, NHOctober 7, 2017
This job field is a poor one at best and doesn't work well with you even know they will tell you that. The days weren't good and they try to get you to come in on a day you requested off they don't care about you it isn't a good place I hated every minute I was there
Pros
N/a
Cons
No break, they ride you if you sneeze the wrong way, and if someone calls out or quits you are on your own

Seek other employment
Msnager (Former Employee) –  Multiple locationsSeptember 24, 2017
Just read the other REAL reviews. Current employees are giving good reviews to boost their rating because the honest former feedback is terrible. Upper management is clueless and there is zero consistency to be found between any one supervisor. Workload is incredible for managers and motivating low paid cashiers to actually work is near impossible, hence the high turn around and constant “now hiring”. Company is definitely to big for its britches so to speak. Find other employment.
Pros
None
Cons
Insurance is good but very expensive

Staff Accountant (Current Employee) –  Branford, CTAugust 21, 2017
Working for Global Partners, from experience, is a great opportunity for those directly exiting college. It is an extremely fast-paced environment, which forces one to adapt quickly. Fortunately, there is an abundance of exceptionally knowledgeable individuals to help guide your progress.

At least we have toilet paper
marine terminal operator (Current Employee) –  Revere, MAAugust 16, 2017
Direct management constantly belittles & harasses the employees. Derogatory statements are made on a regular basis. Upper management knows of the problem yet chooses to look the other way, which only condones the behavior. No understanding of how to treat the employees properly. NO RESPECT, yet they want respect in return. Employees are constantly asked to perform work that puts the worker DIRECTLY into an unsafe condition. When employees determine conditions are unsafe, they are belittled & treated as they are not completing a job duty in lieu of addressing the safety concerns of the employees. Safety is only addressed if it's "in the budget". Workplace appearance is deplorable. Direct management blatantly abuses company policies without concern of repercussions. Ratings are a 1 only because a 0 or less can't be given.
Pros
Weather is nice only in the summer
Cons
everything from the moment you enter the facility

Terrible place to work
Director of Natural Gas Pricing (Former Employee) –  Waltham, MAJuly 25, 2017
Terrible place to work. The management is unbelievably bad and the other employees are just cogs in a machine. My group was looked down upon and essentially ignored. Our group never received resources to further development and were chastised for poor performance. The CEO does not know what he is doing. They did pay me well, but that is the only positive.

WARNING do not work for this company!
store manager (Former Employee) –  MassachusettsJuly 15, 2017
Worst place i have ever worked. Raises and bonuses are NEVER on time yet if lower management makes any mistakes they are harshly punished.upper management cant be bothered to give raises on time. Managers are required to work ridiculous ours because of lack of staffing due to high turnover rate. It is impossible to discipline employees because h.r. is structured and staffed TERRIBLY. Multiple parts of the company send conflicting instructions to store managers. Upper management treats employes like dirt and then asks why dont we have any employes? Im begging you not to take this job for your own sanity. Skip this application.

Amateurish management
Manager (Current Employee) –  Waltham, MAJune 7, 2017
Successful despite much of the management. Conservative financial management ensures continued fiscal success, but puts a great deal of stress on individuals to "do more with less".
Pros
Compensation, some good people, fiscally healthy
Cons
Poor leadership, poor office conditions, lack of vision.

job title is not what it seems
Retail Staff Accountant (Former Employee) –  Branford, CTMay 8, 2017
The job title for this company is not what it seems. It should be titled store monitor or babysitter. You do not use any accounting skills at this company. Unless you work in the GL department (privileged section) where no one in the other department's knows what they do and they make up their own hours. Management is clueless. There is no communication between management and employees, until after changes are made. I gave the work life balance a 4 out of 5 only because they took away overtime at the company so they force you out at 5pm. They pay you dirt for a dirt job. Everyone entry level is per hour employee. No salaries. There is no job security there because its a swinging door company. People come in, with high hopes of moving up, they realize that management only moves up the "brown nose people" and then your doing the same mundane thing week after week, month after month. Its a pointless and dead end job. That is why people leave and they fill the spots so quickly. Job culture is good, because the employees there are great, they make the place so much more enjoyable. They really should form a union for employees there so upper management and HR cannot treat them like garbage. That is another point, HR is USELESS. They will never, ever, ever, (did I make that point clear) side with the employee. Going to discuss any issue with management or another department is useless, the issue gets brushed under the carpet. There are 2 HR ladies for a company with 500+ employees. How does that make sense? Like you will read from other reviews, its management that makes this company  more... tough. Also, my review is not slighted, I was not fired, I quit. So don't think this review was done in anger. I am just being honest.  less

Clueless upper management with zero work to life balance
Store Manager (Former Employee) –  New HampshireJanuary 12, 2017
After working for this company for 9 years I am happy my time with them is finally over. Upper management has no idea about the convenience retail world. They are stuck trying to turn it into a home depot/best buy. If you enjoy being stuck in an office doing redundant spreadsheets all day then this is the perfect career choice for you. They have a bonus program with a structure that they do not share with you, or the category breakdown of what you hit or missed on. They routinely pay out bonuses 4 to 7 months later. Your yearly review is always over analyzed to ensure your raise is 1 to 2%, and that too will be late 3 to 6 months. Whenever upper management comes to your store they will always talk down to you and your employees. If you turn down a store transfer you will be treated poorly and constantly visited to find something wrong with the store. This is not a good place to work and hasn't been for the past 3 years. Stay away from this place at all costs.
Pros
You are paid every 2 weeks, decent benefit package.
Cons
Everything else.
