Came in a 10pm and worked till 7am. Helped customers till 1 or 2 in between customers I would clean and stock store take trash out sweep and mop. About 5am I would make coffee and food clean gas pumps off and get ready for the end of my shift count out my register.
good place to work part time and have lots of learning experience with public. you ring up sales and help people in store with problems.
working with mangers and tell the custom what sells the best in fireworks.stocking and price items that we sell.
Busy allways doing something.working with a lot of different attitudes taught me to be very patient and respect all of my coworkers and patrons.the job itself was a learning process. I enjoyed working with the people the patrons just being able to help.
Working at the 5 star BP in Mukwonago, was a rather dull job experience, the work load was repetitive and uninvolved leading to many hours of boredom and standing around, and many irate customers who are quite often impatient when they can't figure out how to pump gas. The only redeeming quality of the position was the ability to converse with many customers that were regulars and helping to brighten their day.
Positive customer experiences
minimum pay, no benefits, boring and repetitive work, Irate customers taking frustrations out on employees
I started with bp in the mid 80's.I was just a cashier then. Then after about 2 years dennis the guy that I became a my partner later. He offered me a job being his assistant.And we started as a team working for bp in the louisville area. We worked at many locations. Then we started with short stop. I guess I was in retail for about 10 to 15 years before I got married and moved to tn.
Although the pay is just a little over minimum wage at BP gas station with no benefits, I think it's better than being unemployed and homeless. I ca say at least I have something to hang on to while searching for a better paying job.
I've worked anywhere between noon-11 pm. Management was a few really nice people. They're definitely really great people to work for. There wasn't anything too hard to do just things most people can do.
Working the night shifts usually involved serving customers through the hatch where as a cashier you would have to do the running around and retrieve the products for the customers.
There was not much communication with the customers, so that was the only downside to the job, as by the time customers were allowed to come inside the shop my shift would usually finish.
Night shifts involved, serving, stocking, cleaning, stock room duties, basically I would get the shop ready for the morning rush and repeat duties the next day which were probably the hardest parts of the job but were obligatory and had to be done.
When i began the job, I think within a month I had learned quite a lot in terms of paper work, taking fuel delivery etc, which were mostly a managerial roles job, and within a year I am able to complete most manager tasks and have been approached by the manager for a partnership role on a different site.
The only downside to the job is that when there is a drive off (Bilking) or any mistakes made with paperwork you have to cover the costs of what ever has been stolen or what has been fined, which I think is not acceptable and against the law (workers rights).
but overall it is a friendly environment and if you do as told, mix in and communicate with other work colleagues it is quite enjoyable.
