Cashier (Former Employee), Little Rock, AR – September 12, 2014
Pros: great manager (at my location) and coworkers.
Cons: standing on your feet all day with no breaks.
A day at Mapco often (for me) started early in the morning, and demanded long hours of standing on your feet, politely dealing with often irrational people, and almost always without breaks. However, the people who worked with me (especially my manager) were very nice and sensible people, making the day tolerable. Sometimes I would visit and buy lunch – more... there when not currently working. The manager at my Mapco location was actually the only supervisor I've had did not outwardly despise me and everyone around them like the other jobs I've had. While often irritated at customers like the rest of us, he did not show it to the customers, and would generally act very nice. The hardest part of the job is everything to do with the actual work - standing for long hours on your feet with no breaks, politely dealing with aforementioned irrational customers, and cleaning pumps. The best parts were the people, but for me, stocking. I like organizing things, so I'd get satisfaction out of making sure all the shelves were stocked as full and neatly as possible, and making sure the overstock shelves were organized and small. – less
Associate (Current Employee), Huntsville, AL – December 22, 2013
Cons: low pay, disrespectful managers
Before I took a job at this place, I had heard that working there sucks, but I was desperate for a job, so I took the job. Now, I am looking for another job and may walk-out before I find another one. They give you no training but expect you to know everything and do everything right and if you don't, one of the managers belittles you and disrespects – more... you, even in front of customers! There is also a very rude and nasty employee that works there, that they don't do anything about. They expect you to run and bust your butt and don't pay you anything. Do yourself a favor, and do not work here! – less
Store Manager / Assistant District Manager (Former Employee), Memphis, TN – November 17, 2013
Cons: take your pick horrible place to work in memphis tn
As a manager the pay was ok to raise a family on, however Mapco has the mentality that all that matters is their business not their employees. They do not care about employee safety at all they will have 1 employee in the store (because they refuse to give the payroll hours or budget) at any given time. They cut back hourly employees hours so they don't – more... have to pay benefits and have the managers work 70-80 hours a week plus on call 24/7, so if you divide the actually salary by the hours worked the managers make less then the hourly employees. They threaten your job all the time even if you are making profit in the store. But, Mapco and the upper management don't care about their employees , families or over all well being. You can not have a family and work here unless you work in the corp office. Which for them they open at 8 and close promptly at 5 pm so forget trying to get anything done with them after 5pm it's unheard of. They have employees that have worked for the company as hourly employees for 15-20 years and they refuse to give raises to them they still make 7.50$ an hour and when you try as a store manager to reward a good employee the DM refuses because it comes off his bonus he gets for cutting your payroll. Exp on why they cut the hours and only have 1 employee in the stores , not for any other reason but to line their pockets! They refuse to give breaks or pay over time they have mangers fix the time so over time isn't paid. Someday I hope Mapco gets fined or used for the unethical practices of their business and management. – less

Mapco started out as a good job but the more they see you can do the more they have you do and we dont take breaks no matter how long of a shift we take. I was told we are a convient store if we get hungry we have to eat at the register but time dosent allow a break.
Store Manager (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TN – October 31, 2013
this was a very stressful job. I managed to keep great inventory control as well as having a few great employees. The turn over rate was extremely high. this company was not a honest company. This company turned a lot of its employees lives up-side down. This company fired everyone in my store because they sold the store and they did not want to take – more... the time to place us in different stores. I do not recommend this company to anyone until they chance their policies as well as there management – less
Cashier (Former Employee), Ringgold, GA – October 29, 2013
I overall enjoyed the job. I was able to get the hours needed and reasonable pay for a gas station. I had a very good first name basis with almost all my usual customers and really enjoyed the job up until I had to drop from csl to cashier and then the job went downhill because it made them mad and was trying to get me to quit but im over the way i – more... parted from the company but its overall a pretty good place to work if you get the right team – less
Cashier (Former Employee), Dalton, Georgia – October 25, 2013
Pros: worked by my self most of the time
Cons: no brakes given
I worked for Mapco Express for over six years. I was promised to be advanced to a assistant manager, but this never happened. I was able to run the store when the manager was on vacation or on sick leave. And also ran the store on weekends. I ordered groceries, and checked in deliveries. Issued money orders for payment. Ran reports to the company. Made – more... schedules . I worked for three different stores and had 6 different managers during my employment. I got along with most of my fellow employees and managers. My district manager , Joe Ross always knew if he needed a worker He could call on me and I would work where ever he needed help. The hardest part of my employment was the last six months of my employment with Mapco because I had a manager who did not like me. – less
Love my job and customer but manager could have been better.
Manager (Former Employee), Petersburg, VA – October 23, 2013
Pros: the customer they really was good people.
Cons: no breaks and a lot was done unfair.
I would come in check to see what need to be done before i start my shift such as bread baking, prepared, coffee, dining room and trash. I learn a lot I started as a store associate and move my way up as a manager and its a lot more harder work. I love work with the people i work with and would love to work with them anytime. My hardest part of my job – more... was try to make sure everyone stay on task. – less
Productive and fun workplace where I can keep busy
Food Service Manager (Current Employee), Chesterfield VA. – September 21, 2013
Pros: seeing my regular customers and already knowing their orders
Cons: no breaks and no free meals
Fast paced able to do multiple task. Customers are always right. Everyone looks up to me because I'm the senior Food Service Mgr. with my Company. The hardest part of my job is we are 24 hours and I'm always on call, and dealing with my franchisee trying to make sure that all of the issues are resolved in a timely manner. between I love what I do and – more... all the new people I meet on a daily basis. – less
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Dalton, GA – July 18, 2013
Pros: meeting people
Cons: dealing with different attitudes from the everyday drunks and the kids, that are not being watched when the parents shop.
I stayed busy all day between customers and working one the floor making sure everything was keep organized. The management team and co-workers were good people to work with. The hardest part of the job was shift change. If the next employee coming on the shift is late changes are you have to wait until that person comes. It dosen't happen to often – more... but sometimes there are ones who don't care to much. – less
