Pros: Small kiosk (No big store), Your break is when you don't have customers or anything to do, decent work hours
Cons: No guaranteed breaks, No help (No second person, at the store, to help you out), Non pre-paid pumps (which can result in drive-offs), Having to put up supplies from the truck, while still running the register
A typical day at Murphy's usually included a lot of cash handling, providing excellent customer service, stocking and cleaning of the facility. While working there I learned that patience is key. Various and sometimes very overwhelming circumstances arose and being the only person there in the kiosk and having no one else to turn to in your time of need was a bit challenging, at times, but if you learned to have great patience and the will to see out any problem, then that only made you a better and smarter worker. Management for us, at the time when I first was hired was awesome! My co-workers were some of the best people I had a chance to work with. They made work fun and taught me many new things, when it came to the cashier position. I caught on very fast which in return allowed me to start running the store, on my own, in little time. The hardest part of my job would have had to been having to watch 16 pumps, that at the time allowed you to pump, before you payed. On a busy day, such as a Friday night made it quite easy for thieves to perform drive-offs. Not a fun situation to handle, whatsoever. On a better note the most enjoyable part of my job was interacting with the people! The time I worked there allowed me to meet all types of people, which some became regulars and some of the regulars became my friends!
