Pilot Flying J History

The first Pilot station was opened by James (Jimmy) Haslam II in 1958 in Gate City, Virginia.

In 1965, Marathon Oil purchases half of Pilot and provides them with $4 million to expand.  By 1973, there are 50 locations.

In 1976, Pilot opens their first convenience store.  The following year, the company acquires Lonas Oil Co. and converts their locations to convenience stores.

By 1981, there are 100 Pilot locations.

In 1988, the company buys back Marathon Oil’s shares.

In 2001, Pilot and Marathon join forces again to form Pilot Travel Centers.  In 2003, the company acquires Williams Travel Centers.

In 2006, the first Canadian location is opened.  In 2008, the company buys Marathon’s shares back for a second time.

In 2010, Pilot buys Flying J’s travel stations from Chapter 11 Bankruptcy and Pilot Flying J is formed.

Pilot Flying J currently operates over 550 truck stops, convenience stores and restaurants in the US and Canada.

my name is gt mayoh pilot employ number 285617 at store 438. i was accused of stealing a cell phone from a customer. i had nothing to do with this. another pilotr employee is the person who did this his name is brastin bass, he is related to my manager rhonda bell. the phone in question was recovered at brastin sister’s house, i am being framed. look at my history there i have never missed a day i have never been late, i work on my days off. this other employee is late about every shift he is scheduled for or does not show at all. nothing ever comes of this because he is related to my manager. a former pilot employee was fired from there for missing days after he called corp to complain, brastin bass and fred bell (husband to rhonda bell) went to his residence and threaten him with phisical; violence for having done this. i am not a thief the security cameras will prove i was doing my job when this happened

Current Employee July 9, 2015 at 12:04 pm

Myself and 3 other current and former employees called the 800-93-ALERT line to inform my company of the General Manager stealing 300.00 out of drawer 6 to pay for the assistants vehicle repairs. He stated to myself and others that that was the only way for her to get to work. This happened on March 11th of this year. We also reported the sexual relationship that they share with us. Between the touching and sexual jokes and the flat out “Blow Me” statements we are done. To top it off we all had dates and specific incidences that we personally experienced and the District Leader did not request the paperwork to prove we are not the liars in this scenario, he didn’t even look at the cameras. 2 of us also reported the assistants ongoing drug abuse. She passed out on the sidewalk two weeks ago in front of the fire lane and emergency door, a driver reported it to me. My boss out on the sidewalk. She has been found in the back room asleep, her car and of course the office. Again cameras back all this up and nothing. Why should we work and be ethical if our management team is the opposite. I have applied at other stores and a couple other leaders are following suit. It is a disappointment when you try to do the right things and the district manager looks other way. I was also surprised because it was my understanding that the Regional Manager hears these calls as well, why would he not care about the reputation of this company and follow up. The assistant should have been drug tested, and the manager should have been asked about the taking of 300.00 out of the drawer ( on camera) and the both of them should have been counseled and or separated after the numerous complaints. One caller stated the sitting on the laps, caressing the legs, another about the acting of a sex actin the cooler. I know of another caller stating the manner in which the General Manager openly insults the gay and lesbian workers, and tells everyone of the assistants drug use. I know that if these things were secret it would have been less likely to go around, but the entire crew know of the theft, and the sexual relations and the drug use. You can not redeem their reputations at that point. It makes me miserable to work in this environment, and disappointed that this company does not care about the face that greets the Professional Drivers, but only wants to protect the few that does not care about the Professional Driver but only themselves. And, the theft was not the only one. November of 2014 He took 250.00 out of the same drawer, and the assistant has walked out with her 6 packs of cider ale, all in front of the team. We are sad here in Bellemont, store 180, and maybe our Region doesn’t believe us, our Divisional but the numbers so not lie. Sadly, the turn over will also back us up as we find other companies to work for. If it weren’t for the managers, this would be a great job.
