    Pros

    Decent hourly pay with solid probability of a raise.
    Payment system was excellent.

    Cons

    Hours weren't as flexible as I was led to believe, but still not bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be a more visible entity in the store. I saw people get away with a LOT in 4 months.

    Pros

    Location. You will be become very self suffcient and develop great qualities through the many process challenges.

    Cons

    Everything. This place is Good for someone coming straight out of School. If you are an experienced it's not worth the energy they will work you to death and then move to another unaware indiviual. The problem is people here dont know they are being treated bad... it's really sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Once recruiters find out how talented your people are...watch out...you will only be able to get second rate people to work for you. Most of the reviews on this page are outdated before the merger. Good luck!

    I worked at Sunoco

    Pros

    Fair Salary and Great Benefits

    Cons

    Totally demeaning, abusive, bullying environment. New upper management had to be advised by the lowest management on how to operate the business. Three levels of management were missing, so the lowest management ran the entire show. When I was encouraged to report my abuse, I followed the "abuse reporting protocol " as listed on their website, and I was fired within three weeks. Security followed me in their official car until I was two miles away from the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Four letter words and screaming at employees should not be the norm. Employees should not be fired for reporting vicious abuse.

    I worked at Sunoco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The physical work environment is good. The location is very conveniently located in the same building of the main train stop for center city so you can take the train in and then are able to get to work without ever going outside.

    Cons

    Managers sometimes play favorites. There isn't that much overall opportunity for advancement because departments are small and aren't that many people that leave they just stay for the long haul and are stuck in their ways of doing things. This means not a lot of opportunity for advancement. There is no formal business related training so little opportunity for individual growth and not much opportunity for outside training (meaning going to or bringing in experts).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be more innovative and more progressive in your approach to management and leadership.
