The drivers were fun and my coworkers were hard working for the most part.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Summerville, SC – February 2, 2016
The drivers kept the lines pumping and the conversations flowing. It was good to speak to people from all over the US and Canada. I learned a lot about check cashing and operating a register. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the GM. She treated everybody like garbage and cared only about sitting in her office in the back and not being disturbed by employees or customers. The most aggravating part of the job was hearing the GM ask over the com if the restrooms smelled when all she had to do was walk over and check for herself. Apply only if you have no other option. Pilot will welcome you with open arms, chew you up and spit you out without a care in the world.
a paycheck...the turnover is high and you will get hours
management does as little as possible, management will not help with lines, management will call maintenance to pick up a piece of paper off the floor instead of doing it, management will short drawers and then complain about the cashiers not doing their jobs right, management takes extended lunches for hours at a time away from the store
Cashier (Current Employee) – North Carolina – January 30, 2016
When interviewing for this position it sounded to good to be true and this turned out to be the case! The management was rude, defiling, and just plain immature. Examples being not putting certain people on schedule, cutting your hours trying to push employees out, and being drama between the staff! Truly disappointed.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Sturbridge, MA – January 29, 2016
There was no such thing as a typical day at Pilot. There was always something going on, and in a good way. It was very fun working with all the other employees there. We all worked so great together as a team as well. I learned a lot there as well. Like team building skills, working with others, cashing checks, doing the CAT scale for tractor trailer trucks, how to deal with very angry customers (not just my customers but customers the other cashiers had as well) each unsatisfied customer usually left happy though. I always had a happy and upbeat attitude, when you work at a place like that, you need to remember, you might be the only interaction that that person has had for weeks. Truck drivers sometimes drive weeks on end with only stopping for gas. I wanted each and every one of them to have a good experience coming in. The hardest part of the job was when it was slow, I like work more fast-paced. I just used the time to clean and organize though.
Food Service Leader (Current Employee) – Jasper, FL – January 27, 2016
Pilot took took me and turned me into a super star. I love going to work doing my job and teaching people all that I know.My day consists of me laughing smiling and making every customer feel as if they are home.I feel as if you can have the worst day but after you come and see me, I am going to find a way to make you smile, leave a great impression on you and guarantee you will return.I love when people just come in and say wheres the crispy bacon girl , or you should be a car salesman. I even have people come in with job offers.
overwork for demands and unjust pay. Senority means nothing to the company.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Port Wentworth, GA – January 22, 2016
Does not really care about the striving employee only upper management. Unfair pay and work hours very high employee turnover. Extensive workload for pay. Pay is unjust it is according to how much management likes you and you are willing to snitch and turn against fellow employees.
Have worked with some awesome cashiers within my 11-year span.
Unfaiir pay. Senority means nothing to the company. High employee turnover.
Maintenance (Former Employee) – Grand Forks, ND – January 17, 2016
In a typical day at work as a maintenance employee at the Flying J in Grand Forks consists of:
Pulling trashes inside and outside, including all cardboard boxes emptied by individuals stocking shelves.
Cleaning the Showers after every use sometimes totaling 40-50 showers per shift.
Cleaning the restrooms.
Cleaning up trash/debris outside in the summer, to include sweeping curb lines and around fueling stations. In the winter this includes shoveling/plowing the sidewalks/parking lot, salting the sidewalks to keep them free of ice.
Fixing hoses, breakaways and nozzles at the fueling stations, should they break.
Keeping windshield washer fluids by the fueling station full as well as replace squeegees once worn out.
Cleaning store windows, watering outside plants and other property beautification.
Never boring, always something to do.
Terrible management that did not work with employees when scheduling around Guard drill weekends, court dates or health issues, No employee discount, rude and racist customers. Generally not a good work environment.
It's a nice place to be and you always know what Jobs are opening In the area. Sadly the new Manager dosen't know what he's dong and all the good emplyee's left and he hires school kids that do not care so the current staff Is really lazy. It was a breathe of fresh air When me and my husband quit...
I loved this job!!!! My typical day/night consisted of stocking cigarettes, coffee creamers, making coffee, when needed, cleaning the women's restroom, and sweeping and mopping the floor. I'd say the hardest part was learning the different cigarette brands and helping people with the lottery, I don't know anything about the lottery. The management were awesome in training. Any question I had someone always knew the answer and could explain the answer.
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) – Pilot 336 – January 6, 2016
One of the worst places to work at. Don't get me wrong the work was not the bad part it was management I basically got canned because the new manager needed to make room for his nephew before that no pay increase like promised little to no training Ect, ect

Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Tumwater, WA – January 5, 2016
This company loves rewarding management with bonuses, raises, and prizes. If you are an hourly employee, you get a low wage, some benefits, weekly pay, very fast paced environment while truck drivers are angry and take it out on you. Hard to move up the career ladder.
Team Leader/Retail Sales Specialist/Coffee Hostess (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – December 28, 2015
Not a good company to work for. There is room for advancement only if you are willing to not have a life. Management doesn't treat employees equally. Raises are not worthy of your performance. I have been there seven years. and was only allowed a .40 raise and I have four job titles.
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Sturbridge, MA – December 20, 2015
Pilot is a great place to work. Employees and managers all work together as a team to make sure we have great customer satisfaction. doing surveys to understand how we are doing as a team. and having a safe fun work environment.
Customers are wonderful, same as coworkers
Difficult customers, Hard headed, and do not understand certain situations.
Manger/Customer Service Representative, (Former Employee) – Crossville, TN – December 13, 2015
Not to bad of a place to work for. When it comes to some of the management was not helpful or friendly. Some of the mangers seem to think job comes before family. Mostly reason for leaving. Other is trying to get off a shift that I have tryed to get off for over 8 months due to being a single mother.
Some good people to work with
Dealing with truck drivers and some other mangers that are rude
guest services (Former Employee) – CA – December 11, 2015
Overall its not a bad company to work for. The pay is low, and the truck drivers are hit and miss. Some are really down to earth guys and gals and others, well, they are rude disgusting human beings, but thats anywhere you work.Its fast paced and can be a little tricky at times. Learn the registers as best as you can. Dont bother taking complaints to management as they dont really care and if you call the alert line, it gets funneled to the manager so it still doesn't get addressed.
An amazing place to work. It is family friendly place it also has wonderful workers!
Subway Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) – Central Point, OR – December 3, 2015
A typical day at Subway, was come into work put your stuff in the lockers or hang it up then clock in. After you've clocked in you wash our hands and either get on line or on register. If all positions up front are occupied the you would go to the back and start dishes or any thing that needed to get done. It is the most friendly work enviroment I've ever experienced. I became personal friends with more than one of my co-workers as well as managers. That should show that they are a great company to work for I greatly recommend them as a work place!
