Pros: friendly environment
Cons: low pay, no benefits, part time
A typical day at work for me would include:
- Handling cash, credit/debit, and check transactions.
- Cleaning (hot dog roller, coffee machines, floors, fountain machine, restrooms, and taking out the trash)
- Stocking inventory
- Receiving orders
Since I started working at TA I've learned:
- About the different types of payment that truckers can use
- How to accept those different types of payments
- How to receive inventory
- How to use the CAT Scale
The management at TA is great they treat everyone with respect and work with everyone's schedule the best they can. They want to help new hires learn everything about the job before putting them out on the floor by themselves. If you have any problems they are always there to help in anyway they can!
My co-workers are awesome, we all work together to keep the place running as smooth as possible for one another.
The hardest part of the job is remembering everything in the beginning, you have to be on top of a lot of different things. For instance trucker's are allowed up to $300 dollar check cashing for free only if they get 50 gallons of fuel, otherwise they have to pay a fee.
The most enjoyable part of my job is all of the great people I work with, and being able to be home with my kids!
