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

Good part-time job while studying

Such a huge company, so experience would vary store to store. Thoroughly enjoyed my employment as it suited my lifestyle. Good part-time work however could potentially be boring and repetitive as full-time work.

Friendly, welcoming work environment

I enjoyed working at BP as my co-workers were all great people who were easy to get along with, and the manager was an understanding, friendly guy who really helped me feel at home during my time there. I learned a lot about meeting deadlines and how to deal with unexpected problems and how to provide great customer service to keep customers happy.

Pros

Discount on cafe food and coffees, friendly environment.

Cons

Head office did little to account for individual store needs as part of a larger company.

good enjoyable workplace

Working at BP Bombay was a great experience as it was my first job. Each day was the same, I just got to work, did what was asked of me and if I had to I did the overtime if it was necessary. Management was great, they treated me very well, and they gave me my first job. Workplace at BP Bombay was good, only snag was when you got really angry customers but you just had to listen to them and help them out so they got a good experience. The hardest part of the job for me at first was talking to people as I was very shy but thanks to BP i got over that and now I don't have a big problem talking to other people. The best part of the job was learning new things like filling LPG bottles as an example.

Great place to gain experience as a part time.

It was my great experience to work at BP 2 go and as a gym trainer. i learnt communication skills more perfectly. Also learnt how to work under pressure and take managerial decisions on time. I'm always ready to learn more skills.

working with bp counties is a well worth experience.

typical day at work straight from the get go full on coffee making. once that dies down that gives my team member and i time to start doing jobs that are required from us by bp. we learn alot about each other in where one another lacks so we can then help them better themselves. management were always there to help when needed. the culture is very diverse. the hardest part of the day is when needing to put on bakes and topping up on ambient defiantly a challenge but always succeed to complete every task.

Pros

everyone knows what they are doing.

Cons

can get busy from start to end

new, easy

A day at BP Wanaka was normal and easy just simple customer service and filing cars with petrol, some days it would be very slow so to keep busy wipe down shelf's or restock them.

Pros

Paid Half hour breaks

Cons

Some long days sometimes

Cool company to work for

Great staff and very reasonable expectations from management. The only downside I had with this job had nothing to do with the company and more to do with its customer base

Cons

Have to work every public holiday.

Its a very fun and fast paced environment

Regular day is fun and fast paced as no 2 days are the same. Met new people and environment everyday. Deal with customer complaints and met their expectation regardless of the pace and situation. Also to follow the health and hygiene procedure as working on a cafe and each product has its shelf life in spite of which their stock would also need to appropriately maintained.

Pleasure working for BP Connect

Working for BP Connect was a pleasure until such time management decides to chop and change their store managers and this makes it difficult on employees as the new store manager then rates employees on performance of which they had no experience or time shared with different employees working at there gas stations
