Store Manager (Current Employee) – Boise, ID – September 22, 2018
Stinker does not show that they care about employees and communication from the top down is not great. You are only eligible for a raise at the beginning of the year and if your manager has somebody who needs to get a big raise for whatever reason, then it will affect your raise.

The stinker store i worked at had 3 managers in the 9 months i was there. l was promised promotion by two manager's but no staff for trainig. My second manager tried but was improperly trained herself when station was Bradley then went to Stinker they offered very little training. District Managers think its ok to promise promotion then bring in someone else for the job and let you fight over the polsition. They promise you profit sharing if you work a quarter but forget to tell you that if you dont work for them 6 months later you dont get your profit sharing.They dont follow disabilities act, if you have a disability and tell them you can only work so many hours to bad you better hope nobody calls in they will make you work it (especially when you get new managers who dont answer phones or messages) They are a large company but forget there small employees who put up with the daily grime. Keep track of your payroll they dont always pay what you worked Iwould not recommend them to work for.

My first day I met every member of the team and was accepted and made to feel comfortable from the jump. The more I worked the more I wanted to. Training was easy going yet extremely in depth and an impressively organized process. I would love to work there again if I ever moved back to Idaho.

Stinker used to be a great place to work for. However, over the last 2 years they went from treating employees like family to treating them like a number in the system. If youre wanting to make a career in this company, you better learn how to become a brown noser to upper management and to work your butt off and being ok with no recognition. We used to get employee fuel discount but they yanked that away from us. Not nice! If youre wanting a company with great health care options, this place is not for you. Unless youre in management, then youre offered great health care, but the normal hard working cashiers get the low end of the deal.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Eagle, ID – January 8, 2018
The company is a family really, however with expansion and raise-freezes it has turned into more of a corporate mentality than anything else. it is hard to advance at stinker considering the lack of inter-office dynamics at play but one can given their determination.
Pto, 401k, dental, vision
Health coverage, pay, scheduling, advancement, lack of discounts
Decent job but hard to advance due to unfair management.
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – October 2, 2017
It is an easy job with good pay for the work. I found management to be very favorable toward certain people and unfair toward others. I found that most employees were quick to inform management of their coworkers faults. In the year I worked for the company, I saw at least 8 employees either quit or be fired. I was let go once I hit my year mark and began using my paid time off. So if you can befriend your manager than you will do well in the company.
Shift Leader (Former Employee) – Twin Falls, ID – November 9, 2017
Working at a gas station can absolutely have it's draw backs. You have to be able to work with the public, but mostly with people who have no respect for you or your job. It is a rewarding job in that you can advance as long as you stick around and do your job right. But do not expect any respect from the customers. Ever.
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Colorado – September 5, 2017
It was a gas station, so the job is not that hard except you are constantly being yelled at by customers and management is constantly threatening to fire you (you don't want to file a police report every time you ask a person to leave the property? that's a write up. you don't want to sweep the actual road in one of the busiest intersections in your city? that's a write up. And 3 write ups and you're automatically fired). They also pride themselves on being "stinkers" (as in, the customer is not always right, and you don't just try to fix the problem). I did like most of the people I worked with, but I was usually by myself for 6 hours of my shift, so it really didn't matter.
Counter Person (Former Employee) – Pocatello, ID – June 1, 2017
I can not speak for the entire company, but for the local locations I was not impressed with the overall treatment for their employees. The management team was secretive with their employees with a lot of back lashing. The environment was filled with tension and the attitude was close to that of a junior high school. Regular employees were treated with little respect or reguard and the open door policy was a joke.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Twin Falls, ID – April 15, 2017
I help stock the store to make sure we have enough product for the customers. I also use the register to make prepay gas selections, check out products, and to enter lottery purchases. I also have to clean the store at night, lock up and set the alarm as I leave. I feel the customers are the most enjoyable part of my job.
