Operations process controller (Current Employee), Cape Town, WC – August 19, 2014
we were slopping naphta and we did i did all the lines with the help of the team, so for a few minutes the console operator couldnt read any flow. We had to reverse the move and do a check of what went wrong? what we may have done wrong? what possibilities are there? what is the tempereture implications etc? we learned that we should do a harzard assessment – more... before initiating any task to check for any devitians that may arise due to change of conditions. Management created a safety moment and filed the report for learning purposes. The team was very supportive as well. It became hard when we had to reverse the move but the fact that we had valid reasons of what we thought went wrong was the great part. – less
Cashier (Current Employee), San Diego, CA – August 16, 2014
Pros: meeting new people everyday
Cons: doing propane
Customer services through out the whole day. Ensure the store is clean and stocked. Assist customers conflicts when needed. The hardest part of my job would have to be doing the propane. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to meet new people everyday.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Dallas, TX – August 15, 2014
I help customers find what they need and I act in a very professional manner. I offer great customer service from the time the customer walks in until they are out of the door. The job is not hard at all and the best part is gaining insight from customers and having them become loyal customers who will always come back.
Very good environment for work and also lot of opportunity to build up personnel skill, management skill & leadership skill which I build here.

Owner Operator (Former Employee), San Fransisco, CA. – August 11, 2014
Pros: good profits
Cons: gas profits overtook convenience store income
I was offered this losing gas station and successfully rehabbed it into the largest volume fuel station in the area despite many competitors. Managed staff, finances, and fuel inventory. Gas companies prefer market share to dealer profits so dropped prices a few cents but pumped very large volumes to make a bigger profit.
Clerk (Former Employee), Idaho Falls, ID – August 11, 2014
I worked here while going through college to obtain my bachelor's degree. My boss was great about allowing me the time needed for my studies, as long as I didn't let it impact my performance at work; you get out of it what you put into it. I was provided the opportunity to learn a wide range of functions surrounding the management of a convenience store. – more... I was entrusted with the ordering of supplies, checking inventory, calculating books at the beginning and end of shifts, including full book reconciliation, and bank deposits. Management expectations as interpreted by me: be honest, show up to work and expect to work, be a team player, and try your best. Again, you get out of it what you put into it, and I have a lot of gratitude for the time I spent here! – less
This was a losing gas station which I rehabbed into great profit
Owner Operator (Former Employee), San Fransisco, CA. – August 9, 2014
Pros: profits, quick turn around of money
Cons: need to undersell all competitors all the time
This losing fuel station offered to me in the Mission district. I rehabbed the station and in three years was the largest volume gas station in this area. Profits were good, and Chevron remade this station twice to its most modern face. Staff not too much of a problem. Main life of this business is price vs volume. Gas companies prefer volume over price – more... so need to pump as much fuel as possible to make the profits that we made here. – less
because i was a new employee i had to compensate for other employees
Cashier/ Cook (Former Employee), Carlin, NV – August 8, 2014
Pros: really there were no pros we got our lunch taken out of our check with no discount
