As many of you know there has been a big change in the convenience store industry in Houston.
It was announced last year that Exxon would sell off it’s convenience stores to focus on its core business of oil and gas.
That left an opening for Landmark Industries commonly known as Timewise to aquire those Houston area stores.
The transaction has been completed in Houston and nearly 80 stores have made the switch.
But now long time employees of the former Exxon stores are nervous.
They say as a result of the sell many of them have lost their tenure.
They claim they go back to day one as if they were just hired.
Also those workers say they hear their pay under Landmark could be reduced by $2 to $3 a hour.
Workers say they won’t know their new parent company’s decision until the beginning of March.
I’ve placed a call to Landmark and I’m waiting on a response from the company.
