It was fast paced and a bit stressful. We were very short staffed so one person was doing the work of two. Pay was lower than surrounding jobs of simalar nature. My shift was 5 am-3 pm with minimal breaks (10 minutes every 2 hours, paid) four days per week. The last 6 weeks I worked that shift 5 days per week. It took a toll on my body and mind. I was sad to leave the friendships but not sad at all to leave the actual job.
Attendant/matainence (Former Employee) – Billings, MT – August 3, 2018
The was easy and easy to learn. The location that I worked at the management seemed to have a lack of communication with the other employees and the managers. It made it very hard to continue to work there.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Great Falls, MT – July 23, 2018
I had initially applied to a Manager in Training position, to which once I was trained I would be assigned a store. I turned that opportunity down due to not wanting to be sent just anywhere. I was then asked if an Assistant Management position might interest me, and my resume was referred to a Store Manager. After interviewing for the position, I was informed a decision would be made the following week. Three weeks later, I followed up to see of the position had been filled; and was informed it had been. A few days later, I was contacted and asked if I was still interested in the Assistant Management position. I began working and was to be trained on company processes/procedures, and systems. At three months, I had only been trained on how to run the cash register. There were additional issues that I prefer not to discuss.
The management is terrible and I wouldn’t recommend working here
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Billings, MT – July 6, 2018
I wouldn’t recommend working at the establishment there is very poor management and they will work you to death. They do not care about things that you need to get done outside of work and make it difficult to get time off. As a night shift worker you have no one to cover your shift and are by yourself for hours at a time.
I liked the fact the I knew when my deadlines where due but I was not micromanaged on exactly how to archive them. They where very flexible about cross training on other jobs in the department to keep the company accessible to it's clients at all times.
Enjoyable customers and co-workers but poorly managed.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Kalispell, MT – June 8, 2018
I would never work for town pump again. I put in many hours and I went above and beyond, to make things run smoothly. I am a great cashier and can multitask with minimal error. The district manager, has several stores in his area and I've worked at 2 of them and filled in at another 2, also in his district amd the experience of the "behind the scenes" drama, always had a common denominator . Hank Altiz.. So I chose not to work for him. His management skills are floppy and unjust.
I totally enjoyed working for Town Pump Corporate Office.
Casino Bookkeeper: October 2008-March 2014 (Former Employee) – Butte, MT – May 21, 2018
I was a Casino Bookkeeper for Town Pump Corporate Office for almost 5 years and totally enjoyed working there! It was a Fun and Productive place to work. Enjoyed most of my co-workers and are still friends with some of them today.
Pay is good and productive but laid back atmosphere.
Clerk/Cashier (Former Employee) – Helena, MT – May 18, 2018
Working at Town Pump wasn't bad. My coworkers weren't bad, and the clientele and management were decent people. I learned how to use a point of sales system, and how to efficiently serve people. Most of my tasks had to do with stocking inventory and cleaning.
Deli Team Member and C-Store Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Livingston, MT – May 1, 2018
Unless you are an inbred hillbilly with a Meth addiction, Town Pump is not for you. They have started deadly biker gangs in their deli, and dealt drugs out of the back, and casinos. Stay away from this employer
Cashier (Former Employee) – Billings, MT – April 29, 2018
You will only get your hours and proper pay if you are friends with the managers. I reported for 6 months that one of the managers were selling drugs out of the establishment, but in the end I lost my job because I was threatening hers. I even went as far up as I possibly could in the chain of command to corporate and nothing was done. You do not get treated fair there.
