Pilot (Former Employee), St Robert mo – January 1, 2014
Pros: well orginized. good equipment and up keep uniforms provided clear chain of comand. etc.
Cons: for me the only real con was distance from house to work.
I have really nothing bad to say about these guys. If you do your job they are very good to work with and pay well with good benefits. Due to the fact that they had little turn over there were not many chances for advancement with out moving BUT if you wanted to travel they offered several opportunists.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Brookshire, TX – December 31, 2013
A typical day at Flying J was motivating the team to provide customers with excellence, quality, and smiles. I learned that if you learn your co-workers, you will find their strengths! My co-workers were awesome, and excited. The hardest part for me there was translations. There were a few employees that were not fluent in english. The most enjoyable – more... part of that job was being known for fresh great tasting food, quality service, and happy environment. – less
Cashier/Coffee Host (Former Employee), Mauston, WI – December 25, 2013
Pros: absolutely nothing
Cons: absolutely everything
This company is a horrible company to work for IMO. I worked for this company for 2 months when I was fired because I showed up 13 minutes late for work. I called to let my shift manager know that I was going to be late 15 minutes before my shift started (I was stuck behind a train). I then get to work, finish my shift, and then am fired for being late – more... and "not calling in". This company also sets up their employees to fail. If you are a cashier during the day, you have to keep the roller grill filled and the coffee dispensers full, which is okay. But then when you have a single cashier that has to run counter AND do that stuff, you think the manager would be a little understanding if the roller grill wasn't filled if the cashier had a CONSISTENT line of customers (and customers should come first right?) and all the roller grill items are in the back of the store in the cooler. Then also trying to get a plate number, make, and model of EVERY vehicle that pulls up to a gas pump and if you ask for help, you WILL get an attitude.
This company is horrible and if you DO want to work for this company, I would STRONGLY advise you not to work in the Mauston, WI one. They LITERALLY hire to fire and anyone can tell you that – less
Customer service cashier (Former Employee), Seffner, FL – December 13, 2013
On a daily basis I set fuel for professional drivers while trying to make them feel like they were at home after being on the road away from families and friends for weeks at a time. Management ususally stayed on the floor helping customers around the store which was always a plus in helping us cashiers once we went to check them out. The hardest part – more... of the job was when you had to deal with profesional drivers that are just angry from having to be on the road all day and not happy about anything they come in contact with. The most enjoyable part of my day was making customers happy when talking with them. Im very out going and enjoy putting smiles on peoples faces. – less
Cashier (Former Employee), Seville, OH – December 11, 2013
Pros: own pay card
This pilot was a decent place to work and then without warning my hours were cut. The night shift manager there had rumors started about me and my family. I felt that was inappropriate for a manager to talk about another employee behind her back. To work hard and only get scheduled one day is not enjoyable.
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
Deli Manager (Former Employee), Tye, TX – November 6, 2013
I loved the values that the company professed to have but after almost 2 years, I was running one of the top grossing delis in the company with a high profit margin and the financial compensation and support was supremely lacking. When I tendered my resignation, astonishingly everything that I needed in terms of salary and support was offered and then – more... some but I no longer trusted the word of those making the offer. On the positive side, I did enjoy my job. – less
