The money was very good to work in a gas station, but as a manager you are on call 24/7. It's very hard not to take your work home with you. You could end up working 80 hour work weeks depending on how short staffed you are, or be called in to work a shift if someone calls out on your only day off for weeks. Nobody even bats an eye. They are a 24/7 store, so working during all holidays is mandatory, (most are paid time and a half or double time) but more importantly, they will not shut down in severely unsafe weather conditions. I actually crashed my vehicle trying to get to my store because they wouldn't close in a state of emergency level snow storm.... I only stayed as long as I did for the money to pay my bills.
never got a "break" away from the store. on call 24/7
