Did nothing but sit and get paid.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I was backup for the gas station so all I did was sit and get paid. Mostly I would help out costumers, but I would normally just be alone. I didn't really get to work when I want to, just 4 hours a day.

Overall everything is good except poor employee placement and decision making.

Great place to work, just lucky if you’re placed in a qualified and mid-level manager’s team instead of “newly manager”- who may not even be qualified to be a manager & not know how to train or respect individuals.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Poor management decision

Leave a review. Help people like you.

People rely on reviews to make better decisions. Help them out by rating your employer.

Started fun, 2 wks in, everything changed

Absolutely terrible. Not the corporate locations. They promise you vacation and pay increases, only to find out that they mislead you to keep you there. Just terrible. This one is individually owned

Pros

The customers

Cons

Everything else
Was this review helpful?

Not a bad place to work

Decent pay, good flexibility (if you aren't at a site). It is difficult to transition roles in the company (very easy to get stuck). Large company so there are the standard pros/cons which come with that.

Great company to work for

I only recently joined the team.On my first shift, I was shown around the store, introduced to staff members and trained up by another member of staff who was very helpful. By day 3 I was able to go through all required tasks with very little assistance.The team members I have worked with so far and the other team members I have met have all been very friendly and welcoming.I am really happy to be a part of the team

Pros

Paid breaks, staff discount, great team members

Cons

None

Productive yet laid back.

Everyday was laid back. Not as hectic as other gas stations, but convenient since it was by the highway. .

you have no life outside of work cause you are always working

a day at work is working all day when no one shows up. the manager wont come in that means you stay or get fired. you get no breaks at all. i learned a lot from working here, sometimes it was fun and sometimes not. i feel that people play favorites which shouldn't be. the hardest part of the job is no break constantly working through the shift. and the pay needs to be raised you cannot live off of what they pay.

Pros

free coffee

Cons

no breaks not enough pay management could be better

Solid job with pros and cons

Working at BP can be challenging, this isn't a bad thing, but there are times you are expected to preform miracles and its not always possible, you are paid reasonable as a manager and you are treated like a manager by the company, however the company is quite clicky and head office seem to have stopped bothering since work from home started.Since the restructure my faith in the upper management has fallen significantly, the leadership responsible for ending the careers of about 25% of the onsite management has announced leaving the company for better opportunities, and that just doesn't sit right with me ("cheers for helping through covid and good luck finding a new job" is the feeling I personally had from the whole affair)

Pros

Discounted food, fuel card for management, reasonable opportunity for progression within the business

Cons

Work life balance has gone right out the window, retention of your job/title is less secure than you might think

Great money if you don’t mind constant reorgs

BP has helped me to learn and grow. The compensation is phenomenal, but the workforce is getting reorganization fatigue. It seems like they change things without true purpose or intent at times, which leads to a very uneasy and untrusting workforce.

Pros

Great money and benefits

Cons

Many reorgs and corporate politics

Ik zal dit bedrijf niet aanraden zolang er geen goede OR is en er geen juiste mensen op HK werkzaam zijnn

Geen enkele empathie voor werknemers mensen zijn nu bang omdat er mee er proleten rondlopen die enkel asn hun eigen stoel en hachje denken om grote auto’s te mogen rijden

Pros

Geen

Cons

Te veel

Don't get paid enough

Don't get paid enough for the job you do. Always short staffed and managers get upset if you can't help out. The communication is poor or there is none. Get yelled at if Jobs aren't completed even if it was busy etc. Customers and staff treat you like trash

Pros

Wild bean Cafe discount Car wash discount

Cons

No communication Managers don't know how to do their job

Best company I've worked for

Finding a job at BP was amazing for me. My previous job was horrible, had to work 9-10 hours shifts 5 days a week and didn't even have an option of doing normal shift hours, as I was always being put in the evenings. But when I found this job at BP I was so surprised when I was only doing 40 hours a week and had a better salary than my previous job, doing less hours. My life-work balance is fantastic now, the people at work are amazing, no stress when at work and it's just great to work with customers ensuring to give them a great experience. Working for BP is amazing in my opinion but obviously this may differ from others.

Pros

Discounts, work-life balance, recognition

Cons

Rarely colleagues may be lazy and not help you much
