Petro is a full service truck stop. The Cadillac of truck stops actually. This was a very unique place to work.
Restaurant Manager (Former Employee) – Reddick, FL – June 7, 2013
While working for Petro I was a Manager in the "Iron Skillet" Restaurant. Every day was a little different there. Some days I would spend doing administrative work. (Scheduling, Ordering, Inventory) One day every week was spent cutting meat, prepping for the next shift, etc. Of course every day there were many guests to take care of. Petro was one of my favorite jobs. While I worked in that environment I learned how to cut meat, run a buffet, and I kept my line cook skills pretty sharp. The Company was owned by Petro Oil out of El Paso, TX. I was flown there and taught their Management style. I have never been treated better by an employer. The only down side to this job was being located in Reddick, FL., a very small town. And of course we were open 24/7. So there weren't many holidays off.
the pay was very competitive. meals were free for managers.
my only real dislike with petro was having to live in a small town.
