Ampm Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
ampm (rarely "am/pm") is a convenience store chain with branches located in several U.S. states, including Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and in several countries such as Costa Rica and Brazil. The brand pulled out of the Eastern United States in 2012.
Anuj S. from Cypress, CA complained in a review for YELP about terrible customer service Terrible customer service and poor satisfaction at ampm:
"Me and my friend came here to buy some slurpies. I took a cup and saw a flavor that I hadn't tasted before. I took a small sample thinking it was no big deal, as I wanted to know the flavor of it before actually purchasing it. The amount i took wouldn't have even been a full sip. I tasted it and didn't like the taste so I threw it away. I had the cash and was fully intended to buy a slurpie. Before I could even pay for it the store manager rudely told me off for throwing away a small taste that was so little that it wasn't even a mouthful amount. He forced me to pay for it despite it being of such little amount. Never going back here again and I recommend everyone else to rather go to the 7-11 on the other side of the street."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Arco ampm does not offer any kind of benefits whatsoever. Every store is independently owned. They are always understaffed. If you work for this company be prepared to work 2 or more months straight without one day off."
Current Employee - Clerk says"Degrading and hard work. Don’t get legal breaks sometimes"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"They wouldn't pay me for my full shift, if a problem occurred during a shift, the manager was uncountable. Training was worthless, small important things like cleaning a gas spill were completely ignored during training. If a co-worker called out, you were left alone, even though my store was in the middle of downtown and was always busy. During these shifts, it was impossible to stock inside the fridge, and you would be written up for not completing tasks like these. Just a terrible job."
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) says"This bussiness scans all employees, lenders u name it, they buy stuff from the dollar tree and Costco and then bring it back to the store break it down and sell it for higher price"
Cashier (Current Employee) says"They pay weekly but manager and one of the assistant manager will not help any of the cashiers. But some coworkers are willing to switch their shift if you need a day off."
Cashier (Former Employee) says"I Was offered a job by am pm after attending interview . I was told I would contacted for my first day of training , and I was never was. Terrible company poor communication habits with new hires , I called them and asked when I was going to be trained , and they just kept postponing it . I decided to work elsewhere with a more reliable employer .If your a student this is not a good fit job for anyone because I was treated very poorly upon hire .."
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) says"Was not a conducive work environment was judged by appearance and lifestyle rather than work ethic it's a fine place to work if you like a fast paced setting though"
Cashier (Former Employee) says"AMPM is not worth working there at all, you dont get any holiday pay. The manager expects you to come in and work on your days off just so her and her son don't have to come in."
Mover (Current Employee) says"More of the kind of job you'd want to do if you couldn't get a job anywhere else. Alot of hours worked that you dont get paid for. Poor management and communication."
Night Attendant (Former Employee) says"The management made it impossible for anyone to have any kind of set schedule or a life outside of work. Some days I would work 12 hour shifts because they didn't have cover for the next shift. I was they only graveyard attendant and I would have to leave the front of the store open while I did my prep work for the morning crew. I wasn't allowed to close the doors on store because management told me I couldn't. Also with being the only person on the graveyard shift I wasn't able to take my lunch or breaks. I wasn't allowed to take time off or take a sick day no matter how sick i was.We could take draws on checksOnly one night attendant made it hard to get things done."
Cashier (Former Employee) says"I wouldn't recommend anyone to work at any of the Am Pm's in Tucson AZ because if you refuse to risk your life to chase thieves out the door then your replacement will be assured. Was instructed by Manager to risk my life to chase thieves out the doors and risk being stabbed or shot. Even customers would show concern for my life while guarding the door from thieves.Free lunch and Drink for lunchVery Unsanitary in the kitchen area as well as the fountain area. Equipment was not cared for."
Cashier (Former Employee) says"typical day handle customers, give lotto tickets, prepare food, and help elderly pump gas. I enjoyed my team and customers. I am a very bubbly and outgoing person, so its easy for me to fit in any job im at"
Manager (Current Employee) says"No one WANTS to work here. Everyone who does is just waiting for something else, and unfortunately that something else hardly ever arrives. No one making enough money in this company to actually be happy has to do any of the low level grunt work that we, the minimum wage grasping pond scum, have to bear. Not to mention how every mornonic customer blames their minuscule IQ on us.NothingEverything"
Cashier-Customer Service (Former Employee) says"This place was beyond horrible the management the people they hire their was so many nasty things going on in there drugs stealing it was beyond sad to be in an environment like thatHorrible10 min brakes"
Graveyard Cashier (Former Employee) says"Run the store for the graveyard shift. Clean the entire store every night while dealing with customers. Must cook all food for the morning shift. Restock the coolers."
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) says"working for ampm was one of the worst jobs i had, at first it started off good, like any job. then as i started to know the people it was all drama, and personal relationships. you cant move up, management and owners didnt really car about employees,"
Overnight Cashier (Former Employee) says"Just worked there to get money to move home to San Diego. It was very poorly Managed"
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) says"Very poor management. They only give you hours for the days that they don’t want to work because they’ve basically hired their whole family there. Other than that it would have been a nice place to work at."
Ejecutivo (Former Employee) says"Esta empresa por lo menos en el cedis de Gdl hay gente ganando 800 a la semana ya con 20 años de experiencia, no hay mejoras significativas y solo el entrar es para atorarte y no avanzar,cada vez que alguien pide aumento lo ponen en lista de despido,el dueño y patrón super déspota, se molesta y corre gente a diestra y siniestra mientras se toma la foto con los alcaldes y políticos, muy retrasada en aplicación de tecnología así como en gestión de recursos humanos ,si le caíste mal a alguien o el dueño llega molesto considera te corridoNingunoNo hay crecimiento ni aumentos de sueldo"
Crew Member (Former Employee) says"They did not give me my breaks and never paid min.fired me with doc.note after telling me to take the days then wanted me to change out packing to old food in sj CaliforniaI love to workManagment sucks"
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) says"This place needs alot of work. Everything is broken which takes forever to fix. Bathrooms,cooker, fountain drinks,the main water was off for like almost a wk. Other then that I had a good time. The customers made the job.Free food, drinksMice everywhere inside and out. Low hours."
Cashier (Former Employee) says"I personally will never work at a gas again. My ex Employers were extremely unorganized, lazy, violent and stupid. Most of the people they hired were the same way. The ex-Manager they hired had allowed her boy friend to be the Assistant Manager. I would here stories of him beating her and one day when i was alone in the walk-in refrigerator he approached me. He asked me if I respected him to make a long story short he was intimidating me. They ended up getting fired only because they weren't making a profit. It simply gets worst from then on and i can type all day about what went on at that place. Working at AMPM was a waste of my time and a missed opportunity to gain a good reference.You have a good enough salary to pay the billsUnstable Managment"
