    Haven't seen any recent posts about the company so figured I would put some fresh info out there. Been with PFJ for a year. Overall, it's been a good experience, especially considering the previous gas company I worked for which was horrible.

    The Good:
    -Hourly pay (varies by region but Im at $30) with overtime (1.5x) after 40 hrs, I've grossed around $120k since starting, with about 10 or so of the last 52 weeks of working my full 70 hour clock
    - Decent benefits, we're paid every monday, 401k w/ 6% match, family Health Insurance is $75 weekly, vision/dental is reasonable
    - no micromanaging IF you do your job and show up on time, I rarely talk to my supervisor or manager
    -very easy job IF you pay attention, plenty of room to move around, etc.
    -you usually can work up to your 70 if you want the extra $$$, normally I'm around 55-60 hours per week
    -They give you an extra $100 per week for working sat/Sundays and 1$/hr differential for night shift

    The Bad:
    -pay raises are not guaranteed and are mainly based off how many people leave for competing companies
    - Night shift, I was on nights until about a month ago, I managed but I was on the verge of taking another job for a dayshift (for several different reasons)
    -working weekends
    -dealing with Truckers who parked on your fuel drops then fell asleep :mad:
    -hauling gas (we mostly do diesel) through crowded metro areas where people can't drive

    Overall Rating: 7/10
    I was aiming to originally get on with Gemini (Loves) but they were not hiring at the time and they currently have a 7-10 year wait to get onto dayshift (or so I've heard). I plan to stay at PFJ for the foreseeable future unless another company offers me a promotion/significant raise/better hours within the next year or two.

    I've always wondered about the 401k with pilot flying j since they aren't on the stock market with Buffet having full control after the buyout.

    Do you get pilot flying j stock?

    It's not an employee stock purchase program, it's just a normal 401k with a match.
