Front Desk Service/Cashier, Maintenance (Current Employee), Sherwood Park, AB – July 24, 2013
Pros: paid weekly, half priced food
Cons: can be overwhelming
When I come to work I start with asking my co-managers what they need health with. I am more than one thing at the store so whatever important needs to be done first I do it. I am always learning new things and with training other people as well, I learn different learning types.
My co-workers are always fun to be around and being close with some of – more... them makes work comfortable.
The hardest part of my job is when I am asked to do too many things at once. I do try to just stop and think what the most important thing to do first. But, the most enjoyable part of my job is everyone being so friendly with each other and the managers there are always there to help. – less
Semi-productive place with too many members of management
Shift Leader (Current Employee), Kapuskasing, ON – April 3, 2013
a typical day at work is dealing with too many members of management that all have different ways of doing this and follow different policies and procedures. As a shift manager, this is very conflicting. However, on the good side more managers means more people i can ask questions to, get direction from and also learn from. I learned alot about petrolium – more... systems and laws regarding them; how things need to be done on the fuel management side and troubleshooting. The most enjoyable part of my job are the people I work with; they make the mood of the place bright and fun! – less
Pilot (Former Employee), Franksville, WI – December 9, 2013
Pros: first meal is fee, great people, even greater customers.
Would come in and clean the showers and bathrooms. Than would powerwash the fuel islands. Would start any laundry that needed to be done. Management was great and willing to work with us if we needed time off or hard personal issues that needed dealing with. The hardest part was coming in at 3 am to powerwash when it was cold outside. Every part of – more... the job was enjoyable!!!!!!!!!!!! – less
Relief Manager/Cashier (Former Employee), Napanee, Ontario – December 3, 2013
It was always busy with customers. Learnt how to deal with very angry truck drivers. Management was ok and so was the co-workers. Hardest part of the job was dealing with angry truckers who's fuel cards did not work. Dealing with customers.
General Manager (Former Employee), Iowa – December 2, 2013
Cons: the entire job.
This company could be a great company but....you spend too much time in crisis mode. They have great tools but you seldom have time to maximize them. You are told while being recruited that the typical work week is 50-55 hours...not one manager I knew worked less than 60...and that was a slow week. 70 is average! You don't get to hire your own management – more... staff....your RM does...and that is a disaster. I ran without any assistant managers 75% of the time. I could go on but I think you get the picture. – less
ok place to work at, needs work on communication with store side.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Lodi, CA – November 15, 2013
Pros: 50% off subway
Cons: work through breaks, bad communication
typical day is always busy. I learned how to manage and deal with situations on my own. Management needs to work on assisting all sides of the store not just their own, coworkers are nice but need to learn how to keep work separate from their own personal lives, and to keep judgments and dislikes to yourself when you are at work. Hardest part of the – more... job is cleaning when other shifts don't clean up after themselves, bonding with employees. – less
