Cashier (Former Employee), Rock Hill, SC – January 21, 2014
Pros: half price off of meals.
Cons: short breaks, benefits, management.
I did not like how hostile it was to work there. I always got taken advantage of. I did not feel like I was appreciated and it was very stressful. A lot of times I was left with no help. I learned a lot of customer service skills though. My general manager was great but the other managers there were not very professional and made it very hostile. I – more... enjoyed most of my co-workers there. The hardest part of my job was keeping the customers happy but I managed to make that happen. I enjoyed dealing with the public the most. – less
Cashier, Maintenance (Former Employee), Black River Falls, WI – January 21, 2014
Pros: exciting, good team members
Cons: health care
A typical day at Flying J is intense. There are always customers and always something to do. Dealing with unsatisfied customers happens quite often. I learned necessary skills for dealing with customers who are angry or upset, as well as some information about the trucking industry. My co-workers were fantastic. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. – more... I was upset with management because when I was hired, I was told I would be eligible for a raise and promotion after 6 months of working for the company, but nothing ever came of it. I was never told by my general manager about customer compliments or any kind of feed back. You literally have to beg for anything at that job. Even though management wasn't great, Flying J was a nice place to work, and if I would have received the raise I would still be working there. – less
Fun place to work, if you can ignore the management
Supervisor/Bookkeeper (Former Employee), La Grande, OR – January 14, 2014
Pros: fun environment
Cons: manager is a horrible person to work for.
The work itself is fun, fast-paced and keeps you on your toes. The management of this particular location, is terrible. The manager is a woman who will work against the employee at all costs, if she thinks you are going to quit or if she thinks your way is wrong. She will ask you to your face your opinion, then cut your hours and make your life miserable – more... when you do show up. She will hire former employees that were fired for stealing, but refuse to hire someone back who left on good terms. – less
it is not for those who don't like to work quickly
Cashier (Former Employee), Greenville, VA – January 8, 2014
Pros: meet new people and still have regular customer base
Cons: management at the regional level had much to be desired.
While at that company there was never any work done fast enough. I had to learn to more quickly and effectively through the tasks throughout my shift. I adapted to this much better than the average employee.
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.
