Working in a garage can be very busy one minute and dead quiet the next. Apart from staffing the tills, you have to keep on top of the food and shelf filling and watch out for shoplifters and drive outs. BP are hot on teaching the relevant legislation but the daily running of the garage is usually down to the shift manager. Get a good one and no problem but get a bad one and nobody wants to do any work for him/her.
Staff discount on food
24/7/365 operation and sometimes not enough staff
Managers are always there if you need to talk, staff are friendly and always up for a laugh, always on the go and hard to progress in the company but apart from that if your looking for a job where you are always on the go as it is a demanding job then I think bp is the company for you
The worst that happened to me is to be forced to work in there night sifts at Traffod and with the doors opened so anytime all drunk people and absolutely aggressive they can come in and still the worst is that any run off from the pumps or stilling you have to pay from ur one pocket!
Very stresseful, when you are dealing with people who are relatives,just suns,cousins,daughterin law,sun in law, etc, etc,and you have to take all the havey tasks on your own,to cover very busy shifts,and if you do not follow their rules,they gonna find a way to kick you out
If you want to be worked like a dog for minimum wage this the job for you, they expect you to work without a break and many times by yourself, if you need to use the toilets you have to make sure there nobody on the forecourt to run. You have to serve, watch for shop lifters and watch for drive offs! And if you have a drive off you have to ring police at same time as serving customers! You have to put the morning delivery away while trying to serve customers and watch the forecourt!! If you want to work nights on your own with no break and no extra pay then BP the job for you. There is no place to advance your career
didnt actually work for BP I was employed by franchise managers they haven’t got no experience in management , don’t have no customer service skills, manners are appalling.. expect staff to do there jobs with no pay rise or a thank you .. 4 managers in 2.5 years of working there .. loved my job but as soon as these ppl starting coming in things changed.. from me starting there in may 2016 there was around 12 staff I left November 2018 and there was 3 of their origanal staff left due to poor management over the years
Friendly customers, some staff where great to work with
Poor management, never paid on time, not enough stock at times, prices far to high than what they should be
This place is disgusting and the employs smell like curry and i cannot stand it so i had to leave, the managers a bit of a perv too , manegment is poor even if they pay you triple time dont work there you rather stay on job seekers then this job ( the smell is vile)
An immensely high pace working environment where customer service skills have to be optimum at all times, working on tills dealing with money where sharp numetrical skills are key. Giving a warm welcome and serving customers while managing the shop floor to ensure merchandise is always full.
Meeting new people every interaction with the customers it’s a fast working environment need to be quick and have to keep an eye out t all times .managment were amazing with the staff ... the hardest part of the job was closing the shop on your own at night time
Not enough hours
Training was not sufficient enough and working a late shift I always felt unsafe as I worked on my own in a very venerable situation. I was responsible for counting of monies and stocking up the fridges & most of the stock was out back which meant I could not see if someone came into the shop which made me feel very exposed.
Unsafe working place at night
This is a great place to work. A fast flowing workplace serving customer fuel and items in the wild bean cafe like coffee and sandwishs along with hot food you will be asked to stock rotate stock and take in devilerys.
50% off food in store
Grumpy customers lol
