Cashier (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – January 22, 2018
I was hired on around the same time the manager who hired me was getting promoted. Things happened so quickly that his replacement was not fully trained. Due to her inexperience and general attitude towards her employees, the turnover rate was exceedingly high. We ended up with a total of 3 employees and often needed help from other stores. Upon meeting the manager many employees from other stores refused to come back to help. The customers were my main motivation for staying. Diverse and kind

Employees don't get discounts no bonus nothing. When a family member dies you don't get time off for the funeral or the burial or anything if not for my specific store managee I would have wuit a long time ago
Cashier (Former Employee) – Excelsior Springs, MO – January 19, 2018
I was scheduled part time when I applied. I was told I'd be working 20-25 hours a week. I was working 25-35 on a average week. I felt like I received little training and was left to figure out most of it on my own by trail and error. I enjoyed my co-workers and the customers but the store manager was very passive aggressive when correcting my mistakes. I quit in frustration due to being over scheduled and the poor attitude of management.
customers, co-workers, request of days off, pay
Only one staff scheduled at a time, poor management, more hours than I was available

The schedule was always inconsistent. You were promised up to 40 after 1 year cut your hours. 5528 had to use the bathroom in a porta-potty. consistent theft from outside kiosk area employees would get blamed and fired for it.

I enjoyed working with Murphy. It's a friendly place except for the district manager, she was always rude when she came to check up on the stores. Other than her all the stores I worked at while being employed I enjoyed.

If you want hours you need to work nights it seems. Tenure and work ethic means little. It seems if you are a woman with bad life choices, you are more apt to be promoted or given more hours even when being late or calling off. Not bitter just honest. Managers work very hard but need more training on hiring practices and maintaining loyal employees.
District Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – January 10, 2018
I worked for the company for over 10 years. It was great company when I first started ,but I continued to see changes over the years that gave me concern. The company has great benefits by offering tuition reimbursement,401k,and managers having holidays off and the pay is good for the most part, but not consistent across the board . They started changing the commission program which reduced the payout amount. The work life balance changed over the years which made things a little more stressful due to not having time for your personal life or the ability to take your vacation. What disturbed me most with the company is that I observed is that they started eliminated people from their positions to bring in new people and tried to hind it by saying everyone had moved on for better opportunities, but in fact they were asked to leave. The incorporated a culture change ,but forgot to implement this change to corporate office.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Oxford, NC – January 8, 2018
The job is the WORST. The ENTIRE company is very selfish. They work you crazy out of you for a little piece of money. There’s absolutely NO ORGANIZATION, everything is all the place. It not a guarantee that you will have a life and if you have child(ren) this is not the place you want to work. You get no breaks and everything is expensive with no employee discount This company is a road block in life. DO NOT APPLY ITS NOT WORTH IT.
Worsts place to worker ever in Kinston North Carolina

Cashier (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – January 6, 2018
The store that I worked at only had one cashier rat a time working the afternoon/evening shift. You were not allowed to take a bathroom break and the lighting was bad in the back of the building where they kept their stock. The store that I worked for was not a safe and secure place to work.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Macon, GA – January 4, 2018
I worked for this company for 4 years. Within these four years I did not have a life, I was constantly stressed out, and my health began to fail. Murphy does not provide a work/ life balance at all especially as a store manager. The store managers are stuck doing all of the work no matter what. They also do not care about their employees or their well being. Company advancement is on a who you know basis and not what you know or how well you do your job. Upper Management and Corporate do not support you at all. They do provide health benefits but they are so high you can barely afford them. Vacation time and Sick leave was only okay if you were a store manager or above. All other employees were not provided with sick leave which I felt like was unfair. I would only apply to this company if you are desperate.
No work-life balance, hard to advance, employer uncompassionate
