When do you tip??



I have a full service Sunoco nearby my work place. The only one for miles so I go fill up there when im really low. The problem is that its full service only. I feel weird at these places because im not sure if I am suppose to tip or not.

Ehh, it's really up to you, I rarely go to full service stations so when I do I give them a couple bucks, round it up a bit if it's cash and if it's a CC I just hand them a toonie after I sign it..

My first job as a kid was working full-service at Sunoco. Once in a while people would toss me a tip. I never expected it at first, it was kind of odd... but people did do it, usually fifty cents or a buck. Working a 5 hour shift, I'd usually pocket about 10 bucks, so it's not like it was common at all.... wouldn't hold it against someone for not tipping.

I used to work at a Full service Pioneer Gas bar for my frst job. it was great. I got paid minimum wage got to be outside all the tome, and sometimes got tips too!

basically you tip if you want to. the attendants make minimum wage so its not like the get paid less; like a basic waiter at a restaurant. its totaly up to you....its nice to get tips often though, and if your a regular, and tip even a buck every time, youll get better service!

If the guy showed effort in fueling up with no spilling, I would tip. It would be strange not to at least give him a buck.
In my village they always come out and fill up, so I am used to full service.

that pisses gas attendants off!!! they bust their asses, and work outside all day and drivers are too lazy to get out of their car and pump their own gas for about a minute!!! then you cant even tip cause your too cheap, lazy and didnt actually think that someone might have to freeze their nuts off to serve you!

just what i think about that. not speaking of you, just stating in general.

Yeah I usually do too... honestly, I don't even know where to find full serve stations, it's like they are some rare animal. The only one I know of is the one I used to work at in my town, which I only occasionally go to.... and even then, half the time I'll pump my own gas because I know the guys don't usually give a shit and are likely to spill gas down the side of my car.

I also hate when they wash your windshield off for you... it's a nice gesture and all, but that water usually only gets changes once or twice a day and is grimy as hell.

That's just it though... when I used to work there, I'd never hold it against anyone for not tipping, because most people don't even consider it. When I used to tell people I made tips at the gas station, most of them were shocked! They'd never even thought to tip.... but the way I see it, if someone is performing a service for you, why not tip them. But people don't think of that...

i tip when i go to a restaurant... no where else.

i never go to full service gas stations, i don't trust people severing me gas. some people are really rough and don't have any respect for other people's cars.
