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.

I work at the flying j in emporia, ks. I really like everyone there in the day time. I have been employed for 8 days. The first 5 was great. Then i started working 3rd shift and the night manager has no right being the night manager. I picked up everything pretty quickly except ,the checks i still had a little trouble with. I hated asking the night manager for anything because she acted i like i should be an expert after 6 night. On the 7th day i had customers askibg if gumpy when home yet on my 8th day within the first hour she bilittled me right in front of customer and i started crying and she said she sorry but she was upset because i wasnt train. Well i was expect for haveibg trouble with checks. She didnt like to show me what we were suppose to clean or where the sullpies are for stocking. I have been an manager before and a assistant manager and i have never treated anyone like that or no one has ever treated me like that. So hopefully someone can fix this issue before you lose more people.
