    I have been working at BP part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great training, friendly staff and good management. Can progress into management roles if want to. Employee benefits are good. Good for part time.

    Cons

    Hours are not sociable 6-2 and 3-11. Should have better hours given. However biggest issue is not paid enough for amount of work done/completed in a shift. Bad for full time job not enough pay and can make u very tired and unhappy if working over 30 hours for example due to multiple roles in a shift for a small store which has marks and Spencer’s food.

    Advice to Management

    Should give more pay, at least 10 per hour. Also considering other retailers e.g sainsburies have put thier minimum wage to 9+ per hour.

    I worked at BP part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Busy environment, training always reviewed, great atmosphere if your on with the right team, 50% lunch discount and 15% off goods in store as staff discount not fuel!

    Cons

    Lack of communication from mgrs, people allowed to doss around, area management is not good rude, ignorant and seem to forget who keeps the place going.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee requests a transfer it should be managed correctly by both out going store and transfer to store. Your company requires a full process that mgrs have to follow and see through as my transfer request was not taken seriously by any mgrs involved including the area mgr
