Never Satisfied
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Knoxville, TNAugust 27, 2014
They place too much work on a small amount of people. Instead of outsourcing the mechanical and maintenance work that needs to be done on critical items they use untrained employees to fix the problems which result in more problems. Murphy Oil states they pay more on the hour because they do this but they need to get it together as far as allowing enough – more... employees to work throughout the week so the general work load is not such a burden on the management only. They will not allow cashiers to work more than 25 hours a week due to benefits. – less

Typical gas station work
Cashier (Current Employee), TEXASAugust 19, 2014
Pros: good pay for a gas station, college reimbursment
Cons: no breaks, id policy, mystery shopers, working alone
Typical day is running from the cash register to all the side work that is expected to be done throughout the day. Co-workers and management were fine, in my case. Great job if you don't mind working alone and conversing with costumers (not my preference). Murphy's sells the cheapest tobacco and alcohol of any convenience store so expect the clientele – more... to act accordingly... especially with the company's strict ID policy. The one benefit is the college reimbursement they offer. 80% of college tuition and books. Really the only reason I am still there. – less

Horrible Company
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), GeorgiaAugust 18, 2014
Pros: free sodas or coffee
Cons: no breaks, no lunches, very little time for a life
As an assistant manager you have no life and as everyone knows what rolls downhill and who is at the bottom of the management pile. I don't get my schedule until the day before the new week starts and even then there are tons of last minute changes done. Then we have been told we can't request days off. The turn over rate is horrible making having any – more... plans impossible. There is not much actual hands on training. The pay isn't great but not the worst either. In the years I have worked here I have seen a total for 6 assistant managers walk threw the doors. All but 1 was either demoted or fired. This company micromanages very badly. It is very negative. No constructive criticism or showing how to do something right just how wrong everything is. They expect you to be able to handle customers checking out, watching pumps for drive offs, clean the store inside and out, stock the store, watch for suspicious behavior (always aware).keep register under a certain amount all at the same time while there are only 2 people working at most times. This doesn't include if you are an assistant and have other work duties needing complete. Very stressful job whether an assistant or a cashier – less

Greal work environment
Owner Operator, Gasoline distribution sales. (Former Employee), Louisville, KYAugust 12, 2014
Pros: given a free hand to grow the business.
Cons: arab oil embargo.
Good work environment with job growth potential. We were given great management training and the annual training seminars were productive. Great opportunity to get to know the host company management on a regional and national level. The sad part at the time Murphy pulled out of the U.S. and retracted back to Canada their country of origin. I was the – more... first self Serve gasoline station in the state of Kentucky and after renovations, I was the first convenience style service station to market groceries and liquor sales. In fact I was the legal test case in Kentucky regarding the sale of Gasoline and beer at the same location. We (The Kentucky Gasoline Dealers Association and myself as Owner Operator of Convenience store with Gasoline operation. I was pitted in court against a powerful political family who had a major financial interest in the now defunct Convenient grocery store operations in Jefferson County and various counties throughout Kentucky. – less

Some days are better than others
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Cleveland, TNAugust 11, 2014
Opening the store extremely early in the mornings requires someone to get up at 3 in the morning in order to do fuel survey and open on time. Just because you clocked out doesn't mean your day is over. You are required to do fuel survey until 6 pm at night. This is a job that you don't do for the money but for the customers that you love.

Good company, poor management.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Dixon IL.August 9, 2014
Pros: fun place to work. time go's fast. good company and reasonable dm
Cons: they take advantage of good help, questions are not very welcome, and never a positive word, or a thank you.
Nice place to work. Good district manager. But poor management. Hates to be bothered with questions and expects everything to be learned on first try. . Basically, figure it out yourself theory. Takes advantage of good help. Cant keep employees. Not enough payroll allowed to cover what needs to be done right and for proper training and also to take – more... care of customers in a kind and courteous manner. I really enjoyed my job. The customers was my favorite part of the job.Slow on that quarter raise {supposed to be 30 days}. And I was basically told to fix it myself online. Excuse me but that is a bosses responsibility. – less

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
