    I have been working at BP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great perks, good salary, good progression opportunities including options offering further education, flexible working, above minimum annual leave entitlement, paternity and maternity

    Cons

    Lengthy interview process, all for the right reasons gender diversity etc. but unpleasant as a candidate, process driven progression, so unfortunately no shortcuts!

    Advice to Management

    Very good job, good motivational conversations, great feedback for business performance, very good at being approachable and giving time for mentoring and listening.

    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.
