If i could still work for this company i would still be here. they were great the pay was low but i still stayed regardless because they understood family issues and didn't over work you and take you away from family time.
Transporter/Helper (Former Employee) – Robstown, TX – February 20, 2018
I left because the average day was a 12 hour shift preceded by a 2 1/2 hour drive to the work place in a crowded van followed by the same drive back. My last day there I was required to drive a shuttle van to a job site only a couple hours earlier and nearly crashed 30 minutes from town.
Before that I was required to go into the work environment without proper personal protective equipment. some of which detect harmful gasses that are not detectable by humans.
It was a great job to work at, but it just didn't last. I got laid off due to the oil field going down. But i learned alot there and liked all the people i worked with. That was a good company to work for.
inspecting trucks and repairing them before they hit the road .that some driver can brake their truck so they do have to go out on the road,and manage ment sucks they think theyknow everything but they dont know boo,not being able to get the parts you need to fix the truck with,when you can get the parts to fix the trucks with and it works after you put the parts on.
knowing that we have a service or 2 do .
oil change superearly in the morning or after we get off from work
This was a good place to work and see regular customers everyday,
Cashier (Former Employee) – Helena, AR – February 21, 2017
Though this place has changed since I worked there I did love my job and my customers. I looked forward to work most days it got me away from home. Loved seeing the kids come in and buy their own candy with a handful of change. I used to stock the coolers make tea, coffee, and pizzas. On the weekends I had to run registrar, make breakfast, make pizzas, stock cooler, check stock in our store, and once a month I had to clean all the walls and counted in the front half of the store. I learned to add new lottery books in the registrar, and change gas prices.
I wish I could of stayed at this job longer. It was a great experience that taught me a lot of beneficial skills for the workplace. A typical day included greeting customers, answering phones, dispatching drivers, updating the delivery board, creating and printing driver's tickets, inventory control, organizing documents, creating or updating spreadsheets, etc.
Free lunch occasionally, free coffee, fun people to work with
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Damascus, AR – April 29, 2016
Although Thomas Petroleum has now merged with another company, my origins started with TP. I was trained to understand that we do not tell the customer no. That accountability was necessary to make us all better. Safety was always first, last in everything we do. Although it was excruciating at times, that was because of the growing and stretching I did as a manager and person in the oil field. I will always owe my strong base of training due to Thomas Petroleum. I love and miss everyone from that group.
Strong accountability, room for advancement, safety minded.
Pilot Thomas Logistics (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 10, 2016
When I started it was all about getting the job done. The people in lead positions talked about safety but didn't walk it. Trainers where the worse ones they did not follow DOT regulations. Lead mechanics would not want to fix trucks and would give you an attitude about having to do something.
