Pros: unlimited beverages if we provided our own cups
Cons: barely any lunch breaks, had to clock out to eat, but still work if someone came in, constant shifts, not allowed to go home at scheduled time.
Working for Petro is an experience to say the least. The location is open 24/7/365 due to being a truck stop. Although understandable, it makes balancing your personal life with job life very hard. There are times where if you start with an 8-4 shift, and the next scheduled person calls out, you are told to stay until midnight. Also, in the worst case that the night time person calls out and/or doesn't show up, you are required to work another 8 hours. They do try to call in other people, but sometimes it is not an option. After working for 24 hours straight, they expect you to stay for your next scheduled shift. If it snows, they expect you to drive in and work, even during state of emergency. They show little to no sympathy for employees, have a high turnaround rate, and absolutely no room for advancement. The closest you can get is to be into the manager in training program, which they let you go so far and stop all together. Also, as an inventory manager, I was required to perform an entire inventory twice a year, and if the counts were off, was not allowed to go home at my scheduled time. I had to stay and find out where the missing items were, and not allowed to go home until I found them. Don't get me wrong, everybody has different experiences, I just didn't feel treated fairly.
