Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Nashville, TN – August 26, 2015
Cons: Everything at this company!
I worked for over a year for Murphy Express the full store. A manager in another location had to have back surgery and I as an assistant manager was asked if I would fill the role of the store manager returned and I agreed. I was there for 8 months with no additional pay, no raise, no promotion. I was turned to salary, so I could spend more time not 50 extra hours a week. This company sucks!
Cashier (Current Employee), Florida – August 26, 2015
Pros: Greeting Customers
Cons: No breaks & not enough pay
I recently got hired and I'm thinking maybe I should've passed this job up. Its definitely not worth the stress and effort that you would put in. As with ANY job comes rude customers and maybe some hard to deal with co-workers, but for your co-workers to be the store manager and asst. managers its definitely quite insane. Its just not enough pay dealing with management. What I do enjoy about the job though is the customers, they really make my day.
Murphy is a traditional upstream oil and gas company with a broad footprint around the globe.
Vice President HSE and Security (Former Employee), Houston, TX – August 20, 2015
Good place to work. Experienced operations team, however early retirements (mid to late 2015) have/will knock out 100's of years of senior experience in the US, West Africa and Malaysia. It will be interesting to see if the next generation can grow the company production, cashflow and reserves as much as the team accomplished during the past 8-10 years.
Store Manager/Certified Training Manager (Current Employee), Yukon, OK – August 19, 2015
Murphy USA is an awesome company to work for. I was the Store Manager/Certified Training Manager for one of the Oklahoma stores. I have had the opportunity to meet some wonderful Managers and District Managers. I hate to leave the company however because of life changes I have to move back to my home state. I truely believe that Murphy always try to improve the work environment for their employees and they always kept the customers needs first. I will truely miss my co-workers and working for Murphy USA>
Cashier (Former Employee), Fort Wayne, IN – July 27, 2015
Pros: Great employees
A typical day at work consisted of performing customer service, cash and credit transactions, stocking, cleaning, and watching the gas pumps. I learned about the point of sale system they had. My management and co-workers were incredibly nice, and extremely helpful. There wasn't really a hard part of the job but the most enjoyable part of the job was working with my co-workers.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Martinsville, IN – July 25, 2015
Pros: Could smoke anytime, the customers
Cons: Always one person at the store
There was nothing wrong with working there. Unless you are a female. I was working for the place for a year and I got skipped to be Store Manger with the other Asst. Manager that was there only for a couple of months.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Zanesville, OH – July 16, 2015
Cons: Almost Everything Else
It took a whole month before i got my first pay check. You dont get breaks and they expect you to NOT eat for an 8 hour shift. Their was never a set schedule, you played it by hear and hoped you weren't doing something important when they call out of the blue and say they need you. the pay was okay but not worth the stress. The whole store would shut down at random times and when i would call the manager on my cell she would tell me it was her day off and not to bother her so i would be left with a lot of angry people on my hands. And you work alone at night,
Cons: Long hours alone. Working in freezing temperatures.
I worked as a manager for over 8 years. 7 was good. It was Murphy Oil. Then they spun off into Murphy USA. After that it was as if nothing was good enough. We had always hired for 40 hours a week, then policy changed to part time employees only. 100 hours a month only. It was a task to stay staffed. No one except management received benefits any longer. A 50 hour work week became a 70 hour work week for most managers. The pay was excellent for management, but the strain on the body was not worth it . I was salary and my employees actually made more than me per hour due to long hours worked. Upper management changed and in our district alone, 6 long term managers resigned in the first 6 months due to working conditions.
