Overall great company, personally approve of where management is taking it in the future to be more environmentally friendly, whether or not people outside the company see it that way. Very good benefits and pay, including 401k match, pension, and affordable insurance rates. Sometimes a bit of a conservative culture (it is an oil company after all) but if you're fine with following the rules and dealing with high stress at times, it's worth it.
I worked often as a Cashier. Well over 15 years of cashiering at several different gas station spots.
Cashiering at local Gas Stations over a span of 15 years. Often working with excellent Team members. Money sheets often at s $0.01 balance. Alway discrepancies found located within the PAPER WORK OF SHIFTS. Customer and staff relations allowed for the low wage increases.
Managers would cash your checks.
Security was lacking.
My first SAP exposure. Learned a lot while on the job, like familiarity with the screens, transaction codes, process flows, reports, etc. in SAP. This work inspired me to make a career in SAP consulting and hence, I trained in the area of Financial Accounting to become a consultant.
I had fun working flexible work space...you be your own boss.....slow nights you might invite friends kick with you in the parking lot......All juice and energy drinks gets discounted price for employees only and you can’t ring your own drinks unless there’s another co worker working with you....
Less minimum wage, not much hours, fixed schedule without your consanguinity
Bad management, no employees discount on patrol......
The local economy is based on local jobs. Unfortunately, BP has chosen the strategy of offshoring as many jobs as possible. Every 2-3 years is a major reduction effort to move jobs to cheaper countries.
job security poor, stress high, management does not want to discuss moving jobs, just do it.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at bp?
Company has been going through change over the last several years. Strong focus on cost cutting and "doing more with less" which translates to longer work hours and stress. Management is inconsistent - you may have a very good / strong manager or you may have a manager that needs further development - really luck of the draw. Benefits are quite good which makes people want to stay - even when management is less desirable.
Inconsistent management, constant change
Extremely fast paced and relationship based environment. Organization is continuously Branding and Re-Branding itself. North West Indiana and the Greater Chicago Area weather can be brutal in the Winter. Location of plant facility is not for the faint of heart. Salary and general compensation is high to attract people to the area for a reason. If you love a challenge and constant change then this is an awesome fit for anyone looking to progress their career.
Negotiate your worth upfront when looking to join this company
Rigid culture and limited flexibilty and advancement
There's no room for growth but management helps adapt to your schedule. Money isn't great at all and that's exactly why its a temporary job. I've learned a lot about a business and wish to pursue my own business one day.
Flexible hours, Sick days are allowed and you don't do much there.
Time goes by really slow.
Don't pay attention to the media with regards to BP. As an employee it is a great company to work for. Proof is in the fact that the negative press has not diminished BP's efforts to be the best. Employees are truly the most important asset the company has and they know it. The key to succeeding at BP is to constantly learn, grow and connect.
Development is encouranged and supported, learning opportunities, team building, access to greatness
The outside world might question someone's choice about working for a global company
I enjoyed my time working for BP very much and was grateful to work there for 18 years. If not for relocating I would never have left. The only downside was the commute.
