    Pros

    Good salary, respectable job, lot to learn

    Cons

    Too much work, no routine, seniors will break all regulations and blame you. Chinese officers have all the power regardless if they are qualified or not

    Advice to Management

    Top management should be given to qualified people not just Chinese, Salaries are great, rotation is just 28 days. The food and living standards are high

  2. Good work-life balance

    Pros

    This is a state owned company. It provides very good benefits. The company culture makes you feel like you were in a big family.

    Cons

    You may feel so comfortable bur boring sometimes because you may feel the job is not challenging. You probably can predict what you may look like if you keep staying in the company for twenty years.

  7. Good company but needs to monitor the amount of authority given to station managers.

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Good colleagues
    Average pay.
    Strong emphasis on customer service.
    Lots of opportunities to do OT.

    Cons

    The management system in the service station is toxic. Managers are always shouting, scolding or abusing their authority. Managers frequently ask cashiers to collect money for certain items without giving receipts to customers. Feels really dishonest and something is definately amiss. Managers frequently display bad examples like going for long breaks, and taking shop items without paying for them. Also sometimes, using the excess money from daily sales and keeping it for themselves. When we have a shortage, we are however, not allowed to use our extra money from a previous day to cover our shortfall.

    Advice to Management

    Please monitor the amount of authority you are giving your station managers. My managers are husband and wife which i strongly urge you to look into because having a couple in the same station is unhealthy for the general environment. And furthermore it is completely unfair for the staff as there is absolutely no one we can turn to for support when either one of our managers has treated us unfairly. We are left helpless. I hope someone.. whether you are in Singapore or China will get this and something can be done soon. You guys are losing so many valuable staff because of people like these.
