Have you ever worked at a gas station?

I did back in 1967 for a while until they found out I was only 15 and they fired me. I learned a lot while I was there. I really liked the pretty girls when they drove up. It was fun to fill up their tank and clean their windshield - (full service back then).

When I was in high school I worked part time at a CXhevy dealer and occasionally pumped gas but that's about it....never at a gas station.

I worked at one while I was in high school and for a few years after it was right off the interstate. It was amazing to see what people would travel across the US driving. It was also right next to a state park with a lake so got to see all kinds of things.

Nope, I wouldn't work at one of these convenient store/gas stations especially at night in this area. Almost daily one is robbed and the clerks are beaten, no thank you.

Had a 5 month job as a station attendant back in the 60's when dress hemlines were high -- the ladies always left with clean windshields ...

Did, then bought one, sold it, then to manage for a chain, then left for 7 years (exactly), and now back to it.
