Cashier and prep cook for buffet (Former Employee) – Pennsylvania – August 17, 2018
Rang up tickets and gave back change. Cleaned the station. Helped get drinks for the waitresses. Prepped food for the buffet and keep the buffet filed and clean. I learned the proper way to do food for the restaurant buffet. How to follow recipes. The hard part of my job was. Lifting was hot pans was hard. Reaching for things on high shelves. Learning the new menus. The most enjoyable part was interacting with my co-workers.
Meeting new people on a daily basis, making new friends.
Monroe - Technician (Current Employee) – Monroe, MI – August 15, 2018
A good training company. Most employees last 6 months. Commission based pay so paychecks In my case would fluctuate by $500 take home. Also you have to compete for "good jobs" with people on your shift. Overtime hardly affects you paycheck. Simply more time equates to more opportunities to generate labor. The technicians who made the most money are in constant pain from rushing through repairs and by doing so not ergonomically lifting heavy components. Always understaffed.
Fleet Maintenance Specialist (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – August 14, 2018
If you are looking for a foot into the diesel industry TA is a good option. The downside is there isn't much opportunity for growth. Financially speaking TA pays much less than their competitors. I was a home office employee and the culture in home office is not the same as being in the filed.

Travel centers of America was a very good job experience for me for 3 years. I learned how to do more then 1 thing at a time. I leaned great peoples skills. I handled money and any issues with a customer. I learned a lot about customer service.
Dont work TA Greenland NH treat staff like their stuped and dont matter GM creates drama and shift battles. GM steals money from servers when the drops are over when it should go back to servers considering its their tip money. Treats staff like they dont matter when your nothing with out the people around you.
Loved working with my staff
GM treats people like their stuped and creates fights and drama among staff. Gm needs to shower .

Even when it comes to minor issues or circumstances that are beyond your control, your job is always being hawked for better candidates. It unfortunate, as the site team is great, but upper management is a nightmare.
