Shell – Why Work For Us?


 


There has never been a more exciting time to work in the energy industry. With a career at Shell, you’ll have a part to play in uniquely innovative projects through which you’ll be able to gain unbeatable experience.

We have a track record of world-firsts, from Shell Pearl GTL, the world’s largest gas-to-liquids plant, to Prelude, the world’s first floating liquefied natural gas platform. In Canada, we are constructing Quest, the world’s first carbon capture and storage (“CCS”) project for oil sands operations and Shell’s first commercial scale CCS project.

These engineering achievements are projects from a business that genuinely promotes progress, where you will be constantly encouraged to explore new ways of thinking and working.

We are a global group of energy and petrochemicals companies with over 90,000 employees in more than 70 countries and territories. In Canada, we have operated for over a century and are Canada’s largest producer of sulphur and a significant oil sands developer. We deliver energy responsibly, operate safely with respect to our neighbours and work to minimize our environmental impact.

Innovation has made Shell a company of firsts: from sailing the first oil tanker through the Suez Canal in 1892, to designing and building the first floating liquefied natural gas facility today. We deliver ground-breaking projects and work in many challenging environments to produce oil and gas including oil sands, tight formations, deepwater and subarctic. We are also one of the world’s largest suppliers and pioneers of LNG (liquefied natural gas). Today we spend more annually on research and development than any other international oil company. This enables us to stay at the forefront of delivering technology solutions.

Sustainability is central throughout our businesses. Shell has voluntarily reported on our environmental and social performance since 1997– focusing on the challenges that most affect our business performance and matter most to our key stakeholders.

Safety is always our first priority. We aim to have zero incidents that harm people, or put our neighbours or facilities at risk.

Strong core values of honesty, integrity and respect for people drive our performance-based culture – fostering collaboration and inclusion across local and global work teams.

Rewarding career progression and development opportunities combined with competitive compensation and benefits to help balance your work and personal needs.

And our local and global scope of operations – spanning exploration, production, manufacturing and sales – will provide you a wealth of opportunities to work on exciting projects, shape your career path and discover your full potential. You’ll have the opportunity to work with people from all around the world, sharing expertise and points of view that will enrich your experience.

The scale of our challenge is exciting too. Global demand for energy is rapidly rising, and outpacing supply.  At Shell, we are committed to developing smart solutions to help close this gap and build a better energy future all around the world.

That’s why we’re in search of remarkable professionals, graduates and interns to join us. People who are curious to try new ways of working. Adventurous enough to continuously push the boundaries. Who have the tenacity to drive ideas forward.

Explore the remarkable opportunities at www.shell.com/careers.html.

An Equal Opportunity Employer.

    I worked at Shell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful work environment and great people to work with. You will make life long networking connections. This company genuinely cares for its people. They really walk the walk. Not just talk the talk.

    Cons

    Work life balance needs improvement. It can be difficult to find genuine time away from work. Oil prices changing can effect your job currently.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Shell.

    Interview

    The questions were mostly behavior, and easy to prepare for. I would recommend googling past questions because they don't change often. Make sure you can answer behavioral questions well. The process is much easier if you have interned there and got an offer from an exit interview.
