Productive and a good place to interact with people
Cashier (Current Employee) – 13605 West Sunrise Blvd, Sunrise – October 9, 2013
Make sure to provide my best service to customers is my goal. I learned to be patient and listen what other people have to say in order for me to help them as much as I can. There are situations where it is hard to help customers with unexpected requests but I try to find a solution for those kind of events. Working with my co workers was the most enjoyable part since we had to do team work to accomplish our duties for the day.
Lean Instructor and Project Coach (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – February 2, 2016
The Continuous Improvement Team I worked with at Shell Oil was a global team. They worked very hard to get quality people in the program and get them certified as quick as possible. They included me in some of their strategy planning meetings to reduce the certification time. Shell was easy to work with and open to my recommendations to improve their Continuous Improvement program.
Many good employees selected to be part of the Shell Oil Lean program.
No Line Managers were accountable to get the Lean projects done on time.
Great place to work. Enabled me to be productive daily.
Maintenance & Integrity SAP PM Project Analyst (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – February 1, 2016
A typical day at work was filled with productivity. I learned to be self managed daily. My co-workers were easy to work with. The hardest part of the job was customers who did not follow instructions. The most enjoyable part of this job was interaction with great team members.
Team member who did not want to following instructions
Good rate of pay for oil industry. Great benefit package, insurance very expensive. Management is based on friendships and who you know, which causes a lot of upper management to be unqualified to hold their positions or make good decisions. Company is not loyal to long term employees, just a number or statistic to them. No job security at all.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Northport, AL – January 15, 2016
I learned how to maintain excellent customer service, how to properly assign duties. A typical day at work was mainly uneventful aside from making sure that every customer found the items that they were seeking and that they left happt

Sales Clerk/Cashier (Former Employee) – Petaluma, CA – January 13, 2016
I really enjoyed working at shell. I liked my co-workers, manager, and boss. I enjoyed the type of work I was doing and I liked the fast paced feel of the job. I have no complaints about my time there, aside from the fact that I signed up to work 3 days a week, and ended up having to work 5 days a week, and towards the end 6 days a week, but taking on the extra work load wasn't too much of a problem for me because I had the free time, I enjoyed having the extra cash, and I was happy to help the store out when it needed me to work the extra hours.
Deployment Specialist/Independent Contractor (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – January 11, 2016
This company is boring and unorganized. I would not like to work here again. The manager had horrific hygiene and did not talk to anyone all day during work. Not even good morning. Awful company. They also lied about what they hired me for. I would not like to work here again.
Good company to work for as long as they keep making money. They will cut you off to "down sizing" if their numbers don't come in where they want to be or if you are close to retirement at a young age. No such thing as commitment to long term employees.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Annville, KY – January 4, 2016
In my short time at Shell, I made great friends, worked very hard, and learned great skills. I would go into work, wait on customers and serve food. At night, I would recover, clean and close the store down for the next day. My co-workers were great. They would help me do my work and were always there to have my back in case times were busy. The hardest part of the job was physical labor, but after time, you would barely notice it. The best part was being around great people and great customers. They made the job much better.
Decent job with low benefits, the atmosphere was fun
Cashier/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 28, 2015
* Typical day at work consisted of stocking and staying behind a cash register * I learned how to talk to a different class of people * Management was decent, could have been better * My Coworkers were some of the best I have ever worked with, we all took care of each other * Nothing hard about the job * The most enjoyable part of the day, looking at the different people that come in and out of the store
No benefits, low pay, boring, not much to really do
