Cashier (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TN – April 23, 2013
It was a good job until it changed from fast food and fuel to Mapco express. The job was great and so was management. Then it became Mapco and it was different. I was working sixty something hours a week which was good on payday but, not for a family person.
Corporate (Former Employee), Brentwood, TN – March 28, 2013
Pros: it was a paycheck
Cons: culture, lack of respect, poor business model, no leadership
This place is ridiculous. I was hired under the impression the job was one thing and it was another completely. There is no respect, and not any respect for personal time whatsoever. Salaried to these people means on call 24/7. Corporate paid holidays aren't holidays because you are still expected to work as an employee who is salaried. You are also – more... still expected to answer emails and calls on vacation days. My supervisors are rude and har never once said good job. They point out shortcomings repeatedly even months after. And there is no training, so shortcomings are the only way to learn. Corporate is a cesspool and an HR noghtmare. RUN! I'd rather be a server or bartender anyday. – less
Cashier (Former Employee), Nashville, TN – March 1, 2013
Pros: ok pay
Cons: no breaks. no guaranteed time off even if requested in ample amount of time.
A typical day consists of cashing out customers and having to deal with very hostile customers who are rude and out of line. This was the worst management environment i have encountered so far she was very rude and disrespectful to both employees and customers. The hardest part of this job was dealing with my manager. It was a lot easier dealing with – more... the irate customers but when it came to her that was the most difficult task on my end because she did not know how to respect her employees. The most enjoyable part of my job was when a customer handed me an extra 30 and i gave it back to him. The gentleman called my GM and told him how honest i was and how it shocked him, that was a very memorable moment – less
Customer Sales Represenatative (Current Employee), 905 Memorial Parkway NW Huntsville, AL 35801 – March 1, 2013
Pros: 50% off deli foods-1per day
Cons: stressful work environment, co-workers are difficult. management
Its a convince store. They tell you like most company's that you will move up. They tell you are amazing in every way. They promise you things and never deliver. After asking around over several months you realize they offered everyone the same thing and never delivered. Its a recruitment strategy that has worked for a long time. Depending on the store – more... you work at the employee relationship is about what you would expect in a lower class environment. Things you can not prevent would include sales (although you might have amazing sales experience) they will cut your hours to make their budget and blame everything on corporate.
If you allow other workers to put tedious undesirable work on you they will take advantage ( IE Trash, Cleaning bathrooms/toilets, Stocking) of you. Some will even try to put their job on you. I learned leadership ability in that you have to change how you speak to certain individuals and understand that they could be on drugs or have more strenuous things going on in their lives that you have to factor into their harsh responses. A typical weekday consists of stress. – less

Pros: a job to have
Cons: bad coworker and managment don't care about u
my day at work there was ok but the people who worked there were like children. Me and my co worker would have to come in and do are work and do the other shifts work because they would not. I was told i was one the the hardest workers that store had butt they let me go over the stupied mymapco rewards card because the store ran out so i used my boyfriends – more... to keep up my scan rate so i would not get talked down to. They will keep people there who smoke weed and don't do work but the one who does work they let go ant that some crazy stuff. i gave them 10 months of my life just for them to let me go so u don't want to work there none of them care about u even up to the big boss man . – less

CASHIER (Former Employee), Memphis, TN – February 11, 2013
Pros: beverage program
Cons: no breaks
DAYS AT MAPCO WERE ALWAYS INTERSTING, YOU NEVER KNOW WHO WILL STOP IN OR WHAT MAY HAPPEN. I LEARNED HOW TO SECURE THE SMALL ESTABLISHMENT AND MAKE MYSELF FEEL SAFE AT ALL TIMES. THE MANAGEMENT AND CO- WORKERS WERE ALL FUN TO WORK WITH AND GET TO KNOW.
Manager (Former Employee), Brentwood, TN – February 5, 2013
Cons: on call 24/7
I did like this job in the begining but it got old quick. I loved being in management but the hours took its toll on me in a hurry. I never got to have a vacation or really any time OFF. Being on call 24/7 was the worst of this one.
ASSISTANT GAS STATION MANAGER (Former Employee), Nashville, TN – January 29, 2013
If someone called out you would have to cover their shift. Manager would just leave you there and still expect you to work your next scheduled shift. Raises...whats that? I wrked for 3 yrs without getting another raise. When you called the manager he would answer the phone. Ppl got fired over stupid stuff. I mean its a double standard. One manager tells – more... you to do stuff a certain way then the district manager tells you no and just fires you. Even tho your store manager had you doing the wrong thing. – less
General Manager/Store Manager (Former Employee), Brentwood, TN – January 27, 2013
Pros: good money but that's how they get ya....
Cons: bad training programs and long hours.
Worst company I have ever worked for. Poor MIT program as well training follow up. Store operations are also lacking...I'm surprised this company does not lose more to internal theft due to poor operations within all their stores..
Cashier (Former Employee), Nashville, TN – November 30, 2012
I loved working at this company, I was happy to clock in every day. I've learned so much because I was a assistant manager trainee. Our management was great, she taught me so much and made me feel comfortable with moving further in the company. my co-workers were great, we are still friends to this day. The hardest part of this job was having to depart – more... because of my wanting to become a nurse and was ready to go to school and at the time I had to choose. The most enjoyable part of this job was just being there every single day. I loved it!!! – less
