Great company principals, but need to look into work/family balance
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Brenham, TX – February 4, 2016
I enjoyed working there, my co-workers were great, the principals of the company are the same as I believe, and the customers were wonderful. My major complaint is that the balance between work and family is very off balance. I understand working hard, but there needs to be a better balance and support of that from the management.
no breaks, short shifts 7 days a week, no insurance unless upper management, no employee discount, heavy responsibility for little pay

Constantly pushing you to sell stupid candy bars or whatever promotion they have at the time. So annoying. Was hired as a full time employee but wasn't allowed over 25 hours. Was expected to drop everything in life to come to work if someone called out or if the manager just up and decided to have a meeting. Manager got mad at me for not coming to work when I had the flu. Since it's impossible to work full time it's impossible to get benefits.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Conway, SC – January 30, 2016
A typical day at work is going in cashing people out and being polite, cleaning, stocking, talking with customers and making sure that they have everything that they need and that I did my job correctly. The most important part of my job is that I please my customers and make the boss understand that I know how to do my job and if I have any questions or concerns then I ask.
Smoooth buisness practices with enjoyable management
Cashier (Former Employee) – Bentonville, AR – January 18, 2016
A typical day at murphys includes changing printer paper on pumps and registers, cleaning of the restroom and parking lot, stocking of drinks and merchandise, making your cigarette count at the end of each shift, doing your shift report, dealing with customers and trying to make each one leave with a smile on their face, saving of the fuel survey, and doing any extra shift duties left by opening manager. I learned that the slightest bit of kindness towards your customer or anyone for that matter actually does mean something. The managers at murphy oil are reasonable understanding and fantastic people. My co-workers at murphy oil were efficient and everyone pulled their own weight. The hardest part of the job was unloading the truck and trying to get all my shift duties done by the end of my shift and have the truck completely unloaded and put away. The most enjoyable part of my job was the customers.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Arkansas – January 4, 2016
I'm currently an assistant manager at one of the stores. I work my butt off and always come in early stay late and come in on my days off when need. Anytime anyone needs me I've answered my phone. I'm a very dependable hard worked yet my boss here lately is always telling me how I don't do my job why do I hate her blah blah blah. It's become to the point I'm willing to go from making almost $11.00 a hour to a two dollar pay cut some where else. I'm tired of getting treated this way. I deserve better. She writes people up when they don't deserve it and has her one favorite employees that never gets wrote up. Even when she does the SAME thing I GET WROTE UP FOR. SMH. Murphy has some pretty screwed up stuff. There is SO MUCH MORE. but I can't sit here and write the book it would take. Hopefully if you do work here you'll get one of the good stores.
Good pay, great district manager, SOME stores are wonderful
No breaks, don't care about a lot, to much to put here
cashier (Former Employee) – Marion, NC – December 31, 2015
To be honest, the only good thing about this job, is the flexible schedule. The management was horrendous, and what made it even worse is the fact that you work so hard to where you sacrifice your own family time, they still crack the whip on you. Stocking and ringing up customers wasn't the hard part, it was being FORCED to ID people that I just dealt with 10 minutes ago who I KNOW are old enough to purchase age restricted products, even though they just bought them the first time. Sometimes you would even be fortunate enough to get a 5 minute break, IF you're lucky. Even though I had a disability on my left knee, they still want me to stand for 9 hours... Unbelievable.. I am SO GLAD I finally got onto my profession career instead of this place. If you are desperate for a job where these people want to beat you to the ground, I'd recommend just working at Walmart. At least they let their employees off for Christmas!!!

They stick one person in a kiosk alone for 6 to 8 hours. One top up taking care of customers, you have other responsibilities to see to any free chance you get. The pay is lousy yet they are dumbfounded at the turnover rate. Only part time positions until you become a manager
The most enjoyable part of my job were the customers, they were very polite and understanding. Management was great. They worked with you no matter what problem you were facing. I learned to be a team leader and that if you want change you must be the change.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Dothan, AL – December 19, 2015
I really loved my job at Murphy, but I was fired for making one mistake, and the Division Manager who heard about the incident and fired me right around the holidays, knew NOTHING about me or how I worked or anything. I could have been suspended without pay, but no he just said fire me and that was that. The "big guys" care NOTHING about their employees but my District manager was great and he was very understanding and does his job very well.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Jennings, LA – December 15, 2015
Did not get trained well, was thrown into the job without proper training, then got fired for making mistakes!! Management made all kind of new rules which applied to everyone except her! Worse job I've ever had!
I worked here for 5 months and I enjoyed my job. The problem was a district manager always threatening your job, never helping you, or not being detailed in what he wanted. He was always assuming every employee wanted a free ride. I was told by 2 store managers that I was their best employee they had and when I got injured I was treated like a criminal. When I asked how to report the injury no one told me how to or tried to even report it correctly in fear of the district manager who threatened everybody. I feel I would of stayed with the company if it hadn't been for the district manager and had people known how to report an incident (certain things aren't covered properly in training since you have to remember a lot in a short amount of time).
