fast paced, easy, but poorly compensated.
CSL (Former Employee) – Clarksville, TN – December 2, 2016
everything at mapco kind of runs on a schedule. you have set things to do, maybe even set times to do them, depending on which shift you're on. mostly the job is brewing coffee, keeping the entire store and lot clean, stocking stuff in your downtime, and mostly staying on register. the job is easy to advance in...sometimes. the assistant managing is the same work as a regular team member, with more tasks such as inventory management, office work, and basically learn the inner workings of a convenience store. the management at store level, in my very honest opinion, were wonderful. though there is a turnover rate, i feel like it's mostly due to employees leaving for higher pay. it's hard to get a raise, and when you do it's usually after learning management skills, but it's not by much. that makes the job a lot less fun but i feel like the hardest part of the job is when one of your systems crash or you run out of fuel. that's where the job gets truly stressful! the most enjoyable part is the people you meet along the way. you meet a lot of different people when working at a gas station, and i feel like mapco is a great place to do that. overall it's good if you like to stay busy, you're always busy. the rewards system is great (when it works) and the rewards you as an employee get are good. it's having a good attitude, making sure you put the customer and their satisfaction first. it was very fun, but had a lot of not fun parts.
the employee discount, discounted food, discounted gas, team members build points as they sign people up for rewards cards which gives bigger discounts.
low pay and it's hard to get a raise
