Employees don't matter at all
Cashier (Current Employee), SCJuly 24, 2014
Pros: some managers are great
Cons: district manager, corporate, health insurance, hours
As with most retail, it depends on your manager. Sometimes you get a great one and sometimes they stink. Regardless, the DM in SC is horrible and the corporate office apparently feels that employees don't matter. Health coverage is a joke and will get you a tax penalty as it doesn't meet the minimum standard but costs an arm and a leg. And, since the – more... company cares more about the tiny amount of money it would cost them to fix their healthcare plan or just pay the penalty under Obamacare, they would rather cut everyone's hours to 24 hours a week. No matter how long you've been there. They won't do anything for their employees, don't want to pay extra taxes, but sure don't mind having their employees all have to claim food stamps because they can't live on the pitiful paychecks. – less

Cashier (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXJuly 15, 2014
A typical day at work with Murphy Oil, would being with a shift change, stocking products and would continue throughout the day; assisting customers with purchases and any inquiries they may have had. Maintaining a clean and organized working environment. At the end of the day, the drawer would have to be balanced, inventory on all tobacco products.

Most Unconvenient Store in Town
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Wilmington, NCJuly 5, 2014
Pros: managers and assistant managers do recieve commission checks.
Cons: no breaks, dangerous part of town, little to no management
It is very difficult to work for a company where you either do not have a manager at all or consistently have a new manager, which was the case with this company. In interviews they talk the position up, telling you that you will recieve set days off each week, that there won't be a problem working around a school schedule, etc. The district manager – more... expects perfection and threatened my position when my class schedule changed (even though I had signed up for only a five week course for the benefit of the company). I also found that a job opening was posted for my position when I was out of work, with a doctor's note, while having bronchitis. I was not given much authority in this position, and it even went to the extreme that although an employee had outright cussed me out and suggested fighting me on numerous occasions, she was never reprimanded for it! This company as a whole is very dysfunctional, very competitive, and this specific store is in a terrible part of town where employees are forced to deal with break ins and robberies, as well as being threatened by many of the people living in the area. – less

Enjoyed the individuals that I worked with.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Natchitoches, LaJuly 4, 2014
Pros: great manager
Cons: small space
Starting off was a little rough, at first I was not able to balance both work and school. Once under new management it was a great experience and enjoyed working there. I most enjoyed the opening shifts because it was nonstop work, there was always something for me to do compared to other shifts since I normally had everything already done. Hardest – more... part of the job was finding out the types of people you encounter. I encountered people who would lie, manipulate and go the extra mile do so. From this job I learned how to deal with people and I have become more open than I was before the opportunity to work here. – less

My Job
Cashier (Former Employee), Monroeville ALJuly 2, 2014
Pros: meeting new people
Cons: not getting a break and being left alone a night
I had fun at my job my co-workers where great. Management was not so well. The hardest part of the job was the work space and having to unload truck and still deal with customers. The most enjoyable part of the job was always meeting new people and have the old ones come back again and again

Deceitful Company
Sales Associate (Former Employee), MissouriJune 26, 2014
Cons: everything
I was called in for an interview by manager. I went in and was told I was hired. Was given start out pay and then the time frames of the raises. I was also told about and was sent the pre employment link. Filled it out. Then waited for a week and hadn't hear nothing back. So I contacted manager and she said she hadn't heard anything back either and – more... she would check into it. 2 more days passed still hadn't heard back so I called back again then she tells me there seems to be technical difficulties with the system. SO then I am getting kind of suspicious of what is really going on because I know my background is clear. SO I call corp office and talk to them. They look and said there was no technical difficulties and my background came back clear but it was flagged because it was showing "Not Interested" so he called and talked to the store manager there and then called me back and said she informed him then that they had hired two other people and the other manager didn't know she had already filled both of them. So I am like really? They were to ashamed of just telling me the truth that they can't communicate well and decide to make up all these stories and then I call you to see whats going on because their stories wasn't making any since? What type of managers do you have working for your company? The man apologize but said he couldn't do no more. Whatever.... Bad company. I am glad things worked out that way because if they run business like that I don't want to work for them. – less

Horrible
Cashier (Former Employee), Lewisburg, TnJune 23, 2014
Pros: slow pace
Cons: everything else
I worked 12 hour shifts back in 04' at the Lewisburg, Tn store.

The Store Manager blamed everything in her employees and didn't train anyone with enough confidence to work solo.

I got my "three strikes", due to people driving off without paying while doing other tasks that required me to leave the register.

The last strike was when she called me – more... in because she had a family emergency,someone stole gas before I clocked in, then she wrote me up saying it was on my shift.

I walked out after her boss said there was nothing he could. He refused to even fake listen to me.

Worst management ever – less

Pros: stable job, customers
Cons: employee turnover
My day starting out doing inventory and getting store ready for customers, daily paperwork, selling products to customer. Learned how to multi task many different tasks. I hired and trained my staff; I had one staff member that had been with me for years. The hardest part of this job was turnover. I loved spoiling my regular customers.
