not a good place to work!!!!
Wendys Fry cook (Former Employee) –  Springfield, MOMarch 22, 2019
It honestly depends on the person. For me it was not a good place to work. They were unfair and biased towards certain employees. They promoted illegal use of drugs on work premises. Planning and organizational skills were poor to say the least.

Perfect place for a first job
Deli Team Member (Current Employee) –  Inver Grove Heights, MNMarch 22, 2019
This job is the actual worst, we lost about 6 people if not more in the last 4 months because this business doesn't offer decent wages and the people that come in are autistic.

I do like some of the people I work with so that's a plus. The one thing that ticks me off the most is that there is a huge turn over that everyday I do the job of two people and I get blamed for not getting done on time.

Anyways the pay is garbage, the people who come in are garbage and the benefits I have no idea because they told me I wasn't eligible for benefits till 90 days but in fact it was 60 days and never brought up that fact if I wanted them or not, which by the way they need me signature stating if I want it or not and they didn't ask me.
Pros
Free food every so often when I make it NFG

Started picking up
General Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Rhome, TXMarch 18, 2019
If you request a day off for a doctor appt management doesn’t care and will see if it can be allowed. Manager is a tire tech and wants to pretend to be a mechanic. Shady, they go behind your back and will find any reason (I.e. not cleaning the bathroom prior to leaving) to write you up. Decent pay for a truck stop. Would not recommend to anyone to work here
Pros
Free fountain drinks
Cons

not great, not greatest, not even good
Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Beach North DakotaMarch 18, 2019
toxic work environment, a lot of work place drama, didnt matter how well you do your job you still get the 3rd degree, great place to work if your a high school kid or an old lady that just needs a little spending cash, but not a place to work if you want to get somewhere in life
Pros
weekly pay
Cons
whiny co-workers, very low pay for the location

Times have changed.
above store support (Former Employee) –  Knoxville, TNMarch 15, 2019
They used to be a nice family oriented company and enjoyed working for them. Times have changed. They still claim they are all about people but it is definitely all about profits. There are not enough employees to take care of customers and most of the store support are stressed and over worked. Ownership is changing and upper management is disengaged.
Pros
Pay if you can handle the stress.
Cons
Disengaged management and changing ownership.

Nothing but lies
Crude Oil Driver (Current Employee) –  Carrollton, OHMarch 14, 2019
Within 6 weeks of taking a job in the crude oil division, they changed the schedule from the promised 4 on 2 off schedule and 325 daily minimum, to 5/1 and no guaranteed minimum. In the past with snow you'd wait for hours for the roads to be cleared and run as much as you can knowing you'd make your minimum. There's now zero incentive to do so and detention time isn't paid on load pay. Trucks are poorly maintained along with other equipment.
Pros
None

interesting place to work
Cashier / Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Lebanon, TNMarch 13, 2019
There are plenty of visitors from all over since most 18 wheeler drivers stop there. It was very interesting and fast pace. They serve hot bar food which is updated hourly so that's always a plus as well.
Pros
4 breaks in an 8 hour shift. 3 10 mins and 1 30 min
Cons
self check outs took it over for the most part

Liked company more before FBI raid and selling company.
Not this (Former Employee) –  Knoxville, TNMarch 9, 2019
Work loads are not balanced and hiring and advancement seem to be based on "who you know". Worked several years with the company but in the last 5 years, since the FBI Raid, the company atmosphere has eroded. Company's new policy seems to be "out with the older employees and in with young inexperienced".

All that matters is the bottom line only!
Maintenance Worker (Current Employee) –  Saint Augustine, FLMarch 6, 2019
If the shift before you don't do what they suppose to do, you have to pick up their slack as well. Management will not care as long as the job is done. You can literally fake your job in maintenance dept and get away with it. Overnight maintenance has to pick up where 2nd shift left off. Supply Storage in the back of building is never locked overnights. Outside trash on the truck side and trash side suppose to be checked at the beginning of your shift and at the end of your shift. BUT 2nd shift NEVER checks before they leave. Same for the restrooms. They always a mess and showers are too, but you have to have everything done by 6am which sucks when you start off in the whole. You have to do laundry and keep showers, restrooms clean all night. Sweep, mop, vacuum, do inside and out trash. Too much for low pay, especially after taxes. Not enough to support a family. If you complain to Management don't waste your time. They do not care. You will constantly be behind because 2nd shift slacks off! One maintainence worker per shift is ridiculous! Except 1st shift which has 2 workers in maintenance but 2nd and 3rd is just one and you constantly get called to do other stuff all night aside from your list of duties. Management will actually say 2nd shift is known for slacking but says 3rd shift has to pick up their slack.
Pros
50% of some hot foods
Cons
Too many to list
