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

    Pros

    -Great pay (especially for someone who is under 21)
    -Very flexible - managers are happy to accommodate any shift pattern
    -Friendly team, good company culture
    -Plenty of training and support offered
    -Easy to move up to Store manager - Head Office is keen to promote as many people as possible as long as they show initiative and good work ethics.

    Cons

    Not as good if you are thinking of moving above Store Manager, as the company only seems to hire non-BP specialists for the higher roles (Note: This concerns BP Retail UK - I do not know what the case is for BP Oil).

    Can be a little frustrating if you are the kind of person who takes work seriously, as there is sometimes a lack of enthusiasm towards working amongst many workers.
