A Great Place to Work
Cashier (Former Employee), Fayetteville, TNApril 14, 2014
Pros: great customers, outgoing co-workers, very easy job
Cons: no lunch break
A typical day at work is coming in to great customers. I love getting to know their lives. My co-workers are very outgoing and easy to get a long with. I worked at Murphy Oil for over a year and loved every minute of it. The rate of pay is great.

management was a joke
cashier (Former Employee), hot springs, ArApril 11, 2014
Pros: fast paced and enjoyable job if you love people like i do
Cons: no breaks and poor management
When I first started, the manager was okay. He wasn't nice, but he wasn't mean. After a day or two, he would snap and say 'are you stupid?" and act like a jerk. He would expect the best out of me but why should I show someone respect when they aren't showing me any? I understood that this was his first job ever but that doesn't mean for him act this – more... way. He didn't even train me properly. I had to call two different people for help. And whenever I saw him he would point out what I did wrong. If he wasnt yelling at me about what i did wrong that woukd be one thing. But he knows no respect. I wasn't trained adequately and tried my best. Its no wonder the turnover rate is much higher than the average median for this position. I like the company, but I didnt like the manager. People skills should really be a must for a manager in my eyes. Everyone else I worked with were nice and understanding. – less

Think Twice!
Casher (Former Employee), AlabamaApril 9, 2014
Pros: you get a pay check and can say you have a job.
Cons: no lunch, no breaks, no benefits
The managers are rude, talk to you badly.
Training is crazy, 1 day of watching, 1 day of someone watching you, then you are on your own! They will leave you there alone! To handle everything!
The schedule is awful.
You never know what days, hours you will be working. Some days 2hrs, some days 9+. You might work 3 days one week, be off 3 and then working – more... 8 days in a row.
You don't get breaks, you don't get lunch, yes even with a 8hr schedule. Because you are alone!
If you have to use the bathroom, good luck. Your shift starts coming in, counting ALL cigarettes, taking over register, customer after customer, running outside to do this, or do that, stocking, cleaning, counting smokes again.
You are the only one there!! You walk out and go to stock plan on doing it on and off for 2hrs.
You are overworked, the 8.50hr is not worth it.
They tell you, you will only get 25hrs, (due to insurance) this is not true some weeks you will get almost 40hrs. – less

Wait on customers, stock merchandise, clean bathrooms and gas pumps. I got along with all of my co-workers. My manager was awesome. I learned to be a lot more patient with others. I was going through a lot when I worked here. My late husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer. He passed away in April of 2011.

The management is HORRIFIC.
Cashier (Former Employee), Goldsboro, NCApril 8, 2014
Cons: everything
If you want to go back to the un-needed drama of your high school years then this is the place for you. If you want to have a mature work environment where your information is kept private then this is NOT the place for you. No boundaries when it comes to confidentiality and they are very rude. The hours are not consistent and never good.

Thw worse place I've ever worked
Cashier (Former Employee), Bristol, TnMarch 31, 2014
Pros: there is nothing good i can say
Cons: no breaks, you eat when you can, no help
Murphy USA in Bristol Tn is the worse job I've ever had. If you have a problem there is no one to go to cause the Manager and DM are best buds and you can't complain cause the manager is like go ahead I'll know before anyone else. Don't get me wrong I did like working there. But you can't talk to your manager without her saying I'll take care of it – more... and nothing never happen she just turns people against you and tells them lies. Murphy's needs to get rid of the DM and put someone else in there that can do the job She lies on her visits and after that her and the Manager goes out and smokes for a long time. The manager can do whatever she wants she says her job is to do the paperwork and make sure her truck gets there she can smoke anytime she wants her children call her 20 times a day she is always cursing while on the phone. But this is the stuff you have to put up with if you want a job there. – less

Fun workplace working alone.
Cashier, Stocked cigarettes, etc (Former Employee), Greenfield, INMarch 26, 2014
Pros: working alone.
Cons: no breaks.
Typical day at Murphy USA was running cash register, up selling items, stocking items, cleaning the restrooms and your work area. I learned that there are some great customers that come to Murphy USA and that it is a good job if you like to be alone. The hardest part was being alone and not knowing what to do when you are still being trained. The enjoyable – more... part of the job was never running out of things to do so a normal work day by yourself would usually go pretty quick. – less

I loved the job, but the pay was low for the amount of work, and the lower level employees were given little incentive to stay.

Best job I've had
Cashier (Former Employee), Springfield, OHMarch 25, 2014
Pros: management, pay, co-workers, raises
Working as a cashier for Murphy USA was the best job I've ever had. It was a small station, so I didn't work with anyone else longer than a few hours a shift, at most. Management was great. I worked there my whole pregnancy without a single worry that I would get canned because of maternity leave. Regular pay raises, decent pay, great place to work.

Customers make the job worth it
Store Manager (Current Employee), Cambridge, MNMarch 20, 2014
Pros: great customers
Cons: management
A typical day at work is highly stressful. They cannot keep upper management and it is constantly changing. Management has no compassion in any situation and does not like to deal with any issues they feel are beneath them. The chance for advancement in this company is slim to none unless you are willing to relocate down south, and even then it is highly – more... unlikely. – less

Cashier (Current Employee), Aurora, COMarch 16, 2014
Pros: free fountain drinks
Cons: no breaks at all
Working at Murphy Oil definitely advanced my customer service skills. The weekends there were extremely busy, but gave me the opportunity to understand what team work is all about. My co-workers were always very helpful when it came to making sure everybody did their part. Even though we had to make sure business was taken care of, our managers still – more... made it a point to have fun at the same time. – less

awful unless you manage store with BS pay
assistant manager (Former Employee), houstonMarch 15, 2014
Cons: all of it especially pay
Worst places to work at. Store managers are ussually jerking it around asking you to cover some ussually graveyard shifts, pay is lousy, no breaks during your shift whether an 8 or 12 hour shift.
