Good Money, Company doesn’t care about you.
Team Member (Former Employee) – New Braunfels, TX – November 15, 2018
Buc-Ees is a great place to work if you just want guaranteed hours and money. However they are very strict about their guidelines, and harsh with punishment. My first day a coworker told me “the most common way to quit Buc-Ees is by getting fired.” Through my 5-month experience there I quickly became one of the most senior and experienced employee because of the ridiculous turnover rate. I was training a new coworker every week it seemed (Just in my Main department!) they would let go employees who had been there for YEARS because of simple, easily fixable offenses. One lovely lady, who had been there for 2 years, was let go after forgetting to clock out for a shift early in the week. One day, my car had broken down a few miles away from work, I had to walk the rest of the way, leaving my car on the side of the highway. I called to let them know I’d be running behind but was still going to get there ASAP so they’d be more forgiving. I ended up being 15 whole minutes late (it was a mile and a half walk in Texas summer, I was drenched in sweat) and worked my whole shift and even stayed late to get a headstart on the next days work.
My car was broken into, vandalized, and got everything worth anything stolen. Battery, Tires, expensive camping equipment etc. The next day I went into work, they wrote me up for being late, regardless of protest. I could have skipped altogether and taken care of my car and I still would have gotten only one write up(they give 3 before termination, it’s a big deal.)
No discount, Treated like a drone, too many hours sometimes.
