Cashier/Manager (Former Employee) – Fremont, IN – August 19, 2017
Its very busy, your always on the go. The people you work with are some of the most amazing people. and the customers are awesome. Some people can handle being busy all the time but it was nice. Some managers need better training though.
Company Driver (Former Employee) – Hebron, IN – August 20, 2017
Can't trust management for the drivers. They will fabricate a lie if it benefits them. Retaliation by management is allowed. Company is getting more strict every day. Used to be a great job but the powers that be are full of themselves and will take down anyone that gets in their way. Just not worth risking your career and reputation for this company when it's one of the lowest paying for the drivers hauling HAZMAT. Company won't fix equipment unless it's a DOT requirement. Lead driver gets a new truck while all the other drivers get junk.Co-workers will stab you in the back creating a hostile work environment.
manager (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – August 18, 2017
I learned a lot working for this company. I know they have had some ethical issues. I think that arose from having been a small independent company. They kept that small time thinking even after they grew big and should have been more professional. I knew an HR person who worked there years ago who tried to "clean it up" and get rid of the unethical issues... but he was fired for it. All in all though, I enjoyed my job and my time there...
great benefits. Working for the original owner was a Pro for sure.
Shift Leader/Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) – Pacific, MO – August 16, 2017
Don't treat there employees equally. The restaurant general manager sucks and makes for a bad work environment. I learned a lot about running shifts and how to be a leader. But. If you have a criminal background you can't advance in the company.
GUEST SERVICES MANAGER (Former Employee) – Sioux City, IA – August 16, 2017
Pilot Flying J is a home for all types of truck drivers passing through, as well as the numerous other types of drivers. So, I dealt with many different types of personalities. Where I had to have a tough skin and a great sense of humor in dealing with a fast-paced environment and where there was little room for error.
Guest Service Lead (Current Employee) – Austintown, OH – August 15, 2017
Working for this company is as stressful. In the 20 years in the business I have never worked for a more incompetent group of upper management. PFJ is just like all the other retailers out there, underpay the team members, short staffing, unreasonable expectations and all the while the upper management clock out at 5 and don't care about the rest of us. If we don't meet there expectations the middle managers get chastises. They don't want to hear anything about how to fix the problems they just want us to fix them. Unfair and unreasonable.
Management, customers, work load, company philosophy, schedule, no family time unless the GM likes you
Restaurant Team Lead (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – August 14, 2017
The job is easy but so much fun. You stay super busy because there's a lot to do but it makes the day go by fast! There are 3 parts of the store the gas station, subway, and taco bell so there's a lot of great people to get to know.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Franklin, OH – August 14, 2017
I absolutely loved working for this company. The best job ive ever had. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone not just to work there but to shop there as well. Its a amazing place to shop or to work at.
Food service lead 2 (Former Employee) – Council Bluffs, IA – August 13, 2017
Hours are constantly changed without being asked first. Restaurant is poorly ran. As long as the rgm gets her days off then everybody should be happy, right? Wrong idea. Job advancement doesn't exist if you do your job correctly.
short breaks if you even get the chance to have one, always short staffed, no unity between managers, always stuck on certain shifts
