Busy and not well managed
For minimum wage they require a full 8 hour work schedule. Although, due to manning levels, day shifts get 30 minutes lunchtime, night shift of two people are busy all the time with eating on the job.

Very poor
Good pay, but management is tyrannical and has its favourite staff who do get better treatment. Good people to work with apart from the managers. Breaks not adhered to most of the time, due to lack of staff.

Busy some of the time
Some of the staff are very supportive, well educated and have been there a number of years. It can be fairly flexible if you want to do a certain amount only.

Management Needed Work
It was like doing the work of a 10 people. I was the cook, the janitor, the cashier and I did inventory. There was always drama and the owner was tone-deaf, in another country and uncaring. They still owe me a check but the manager that hired me no longer works there

Alright
It's alright if you like to be stressed out all the time, and have rude customers, managers 3 off them are fantastic to work with but the actual manager isn't great to work with, if you have no social life at all than this would be a good job for you, and disappointed bit is that you have to pay your lunch out of your wages, the pay is okay, and basicaly you get paid and half of your money hose BACK to bp, they only good thing is you get a free car wash each month and that it. Try and avoid all cost
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Long hours, no free food, waist

Well balanced and enjoyable
the work place was very different as theres always new customers coming to deal with, also with different problems makes it very enjoyable and not boring to deal with the same problems.

part time
job was as would be expected for a petrol garage, this actually closed at around 11pm which was good as this meant we didn't have to work though out the night/early morning, I preferred that as it meant personal safety was better.

I enjoyed my time there but if u got on the wrong side of the mangers you know about it, i hate working at night but at the same time i enjoyed it you could always have a laugh with the customers who came in after a night out.
There was never a day the same which was good as it keeps you on your toesw and never know what to expect

Productive and fun workplace
I really enjoyed working there, my typical day of work consisted of unpacking delivered items, general cleaning, serving customers, managing complaints, cash handling, lottery payouts, selling car wash tickets, operation of paypoint and lottery machine .
I have larned how to manage any challenging situation while staying calm and applying the best possible solution. My manager was very supportive, fair and with a friendly attitude. I worked unsupervised for most of the time, and I learned multitasking as well as prioritising duties and working to meet deadlines.

We had a nice, professional work team and were able to communicate with co-workers easily.

The hardest part of my job were busy hours, although it was quite challenging I enjoyed that as I was able to deliver the best customer service possible, and keep the shop nice and tidy. I helped me to stay super focused.

The most enjoyable part of this work were customers and opportunity to chat with them, help them and solve their problems efficiently.
Pros
discounts for employers
Cons
busy environment

My typical day at work is a good experience. I enjoy all my co-workers. I have learned that all people have good days and bad days. Even if customers are upset, may have nothing to do with me. I do not take things personally. Most days are wonderful. Meeting new people everyday.

Relaxed work environment but not enough challenges.
A typical day a Bp Service Station usually consists of me supervising the store and manning the till while doing small jobs like; bagging fruit, stocking the cigarettes, bagging lollies, cleaning & keeping the food stock behind the counter topped up. I've never had a problem working with Bp although i'm growing very tired of the same routine and no new challenges in my workplace. I've learnt a lot about customer service and how to deal with those tough customers. The management have always been very friendly and always willing to help with any problems to do with working hours or even work in general.
Pros
Nice relaxed work environment.
Cons
Average pay and no real challenges.
