PDMS Piping Designer (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – October 21, 2016
Shell is a great company to work in. Good salary, perks, good work culture. Flexible timing etc. Job security is very bad due to the down turn in oil prices. Lot of projects are cancelled and lot of lay offs in 2016.
Working atmosphere, good people around. good management, good salary, flexible timing.
No job security due to cancellation of projects mainly due to the oil prices.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Antlers, OK – October 17, 2016
Most days at shell were pretty routine and the schedules and chore lists that each of us had for the day were very well organized and planned out. Wonderful ownership and management and also very flexible with you
anonymous (Current Employee) – Galena Park, TX – October 15, 2016
Safety is their number one priority which is a good thing for this company. No lost time in 4 years or so. Working here is laid back. Still a lot of progress this company at the Galena site has to overcome.
Eveyone gets along.
Union driven pay. The hardest working individual gets paid the same as the laziest.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Brookpark, OH – October 10, 2016
Cashiering at the regular and lottery registers is easy. 98% of customers are very friendly and most are 'regulars'. Cleaning and stocking are easy and a good way to build some arm muscle. No chance for advancement. Whatever you do, really listen to them when they say "Don't play lottery during your shift", that's how I lost my job. Even the co-workers are friendly and easy to get along with.
Working with great people, both co-workers and customers.
CASHIER, SALES CLERK (Former Employee) – Fort Washington, MD – October 4, 2016
This job was just to have cash on the side while I went to school. The job was fairly simple since it only involved me cleaning, stocking, and (mainly) socializing with customers. I got along with all my coworkers easily and became very good friends with my supervisor. This relationship helped me learned a little about the ins-and-outs owning a franchise.
The hardest part of my job was there was not a designated lunch-break time, therefore some times I ate lunch and other times I did not. The most enjoyable part was getting to know the customers.
Learning Manager - Corporate Center (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – October 4, 2016
Employees are hard working, good hearted, have a very Diverse and Inclusive environment. Challenging global atmosphere to make sure all areas are covered and included with over 100 countries to consider.
Main cashier (Former Employee) – Dacula, GA – October 2, 2016
I always felt a connection with the owners of Shell because they took me in as family and were always interested in giving me the best and most comfortable work environment. Co-workers were steady workers, who loved their jobs. The job was no demanding, although they did expect a lot from the cashiers.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Marshall, MI – September 28, 2016
I've worked for this company for almost four years and it's starting to wear on me. I usually work 8 hour shifts and it's so busy I never get a break. My manager favors scheduling full time employees around what the part time workers want/need, and yearly raises are hardly ever given. If they are, they're minimal. Don't work for this company unless you absolutely cannot find anything else.
I've been with Shell for 17 years. Over the years I've observed that when the economy is good, there isn't a better place to work than Shell. Their benefits package is second to none, development of staff at all levels is encouraged, leaders push their staff to perform at their best (at times outside of their comfort zone) and they are top-quartile when it comes to embracing diversity and inclusion.
Lately, with budget cuts, downsizing, reorgs, pending office closures, etc., it makes for a challenging work environment. BUT...this all goes with the territory of working in the petroleum industry. I have gained so much through working for Shell. Personal and professional development, excellent pay and benefits, flexible work schedule (9-80), colleagues and managers who practice Shell's Enterprise First behaviors and much more. It's been an experience that I am truly grateful for.

Cashier (Current Employee) – Elk Grove, CA – September 19, 2016
On a typical day at Shells, first person who opens after swing shift is expected to count and record cigarettes and lottery scratchers. Open register and make sure your till is at $100. There will be two employees, one will be assigned on register and the other doing side duty, which is; cleaning/sweeping outside and restocking the cooler. I've learned a lot from not knowing how to make coffee to being calm when angry customers put you in certain situations. For example, a customer demanded that our location should take EBT. I calmly told the customer that only certain locations take EBT for food but our location specifically and many others do not accept EBT. Though the customer was very angry, I was able to reason with the customer that if she didn't have any cash on her, which is what she complained about, that there is an ATM machine inside our store. The hardest part of this job is probably the cooler. It gets freezing cold in there and you could get sick if not dressed properly. Most enjoyable part of this job is working with other employees. They are all very friendly and cooperative with all new employees.

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Columbus, GA – September 13, 2016
At Shell Gas station I learned how to work a cash register. A man always begs for change throughout the neighborhood. We're supposed to run him off the property if we see him begging, but only one manager ever does. Some of my co-workers were very lazy and didn't do there jobs, the hardest part about the job was lottery at first but i got the hang of it, what I enjoyed the most was meeting different types of people and getting to know them.
