Good job overall

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Would reccomend just gets a bit boring after so long as you don't learn anymore. Promotion would make it better because the hard work mean something after that

Pros

Overtime rate

High staff turnover

Too many responsibilities are heaped on staff. Training is oftentimes cut short and you get to learn when you’re already on the job. Rosters are inflexible and sick leaves and injuries are viewed with much skepticism. Management tends to distrust its staff.

Pros

Staff discount on food/coffee and car wash

Cons

Very inflexible work hours, high turnover of both staff and store managers, lack of trust in staff by management

toxic workplace not worth the stress

worked here for well over a year started off okay with good management but when the management changed it went downhill. worst place to work with coworkers who are bitter, they treat it as a career rather than an entry level job and will act as if they have higher power while working the same role as you.management are horrible and don’t care to resolve issues especially as they are the main one e.g a lot of swearing if you need to go home sick, they aren’t happy to help out front and will leave you to struggle. definitely not the place to work if you can’t stand your ground when it comes to aggressive coworkers and customers.

Cons

toxic management lack of room for growth

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

productive and fun

Always kept busy by customers or doing tasks which was good. Can get stressful during rush hours but nothing you cant handle. I was briefed on all safety and security procedures, great management/friendly environment. Got good breaks. Only negatives would be the inevitable rude/outrageous customers, you get all walks of life at a petrol station so expect that. Other than that decent discount on the bakery/cafe items and made good mates w the other workers. can be a fun and rewarding job sometimes.

Pros

discounts on petrol and food and good breaks

Cons

long hours on the feet

Should try to be less racist

I have noticed racism at many times. No reaction to the complaints made. Some people r smart enough to wisely waste their time by getting involved in activities for long time and this makes others to work more. Thanks

Pros

Team work

Cons

Too much work load

Good to work in cafe

Good to work just as a cafe member or team lead. Not on any other departments. Management is not that great. Monetary benefits with heaps of staff discounts.

Can’t remember.

Bp it was a good job for me and I actually wanted to go management in cafe as I was going somewhere with my past winning region as rookie in Auckland. Wanting to get supreme the next year - but what ruined it was the gossip between work mates and managers talking about other crew. I would really recommend working for Bp as I loved doing my job with a passion in not just making the food for cafe but coffee as well

Stressful

Worked ever so hard to not be appreciated. Poor work environment, competitive nature and unenjoyable. We were worked extremely hard and were always understaffed.

Management

The overall experience working at BP was good. I met a lot of awesome people and they are like family to me. Downs are management expectations, pay and bonus'. Management could do better at realizing that their employees work hard sweat and tears each day for the company.

Good to start your career

A good place to start career in retail and customer service. Many skills to learn and perfect while working here. Over all a good and learning experience for a fresher in the field.

Bp

I worked overnights with BP. The least enjoyable part of the job was dealing with sub-par management. The most enjoyable part was meeting and interacting with people.
