Gas Station Attendant Reviews

What is it like working as a Gas Station Attendant?

Gas Station Attendant in Lansing:
"Gas station experience."
Pros: I like being able to get to know my customers. I know most of them by name. For this reason, I like being able to work at one location for a considerable time. I have always organized and controlled the cooler in my stores. This is the source of a large percentage of sales, and it's crucial to have organized and well stocked. My doing this also relieves the manager of one responsibility and a great deal of time. This has always been a source of pride for me.
Cons: The long hours on my feet on a concrete floor have taken a toll on my legs and feet. My only other issue is the occasional stranger who looks at service people as beneath the need to be treated with respect. Luckily, most people are respectful and courteous.
