I have been working at BP full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great people interaction, multi-tasking skills are increased, working with cash and lotto prepare you for other endeavors you may want to peruse.

Cons

Dealing with irate customers happens so if you can't deal that's a huge downfall. Maintenance of stores are not taken as seriously as they should be.

Advice to Management

Take employees questions and concerns into consideration. Employees are the ones who deal with the public, in the store and know what happens hands on.

    I worked at BP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - A lot of opportunity to gain experience in different countries
    - Very focused on providing a good employment package
    - Able to work on cutting edge technology and new interesting processes
    - Very smart people that work there

    Cons

    - Management style is very 1900's. It is very hierarchical. It was the first and only place where I heard a statement like - "When you talk to someone at my level"
    - Managers are not well trained. They are trained in BP procedures, not how to lead people
    - Communication to employees is awful.
    - There is a false focus on safety. At every meeting there was a "safety moment", but it was almost used as a way to avoid dealing with real issues

    Advice to Management

    Provide more leadership training and opportunities to give feedback about managers. Also, break down the silos and fiefdoms. There are too many little kingdoms that actually make it hard to get things done properly.

    Continue with the frequent updates and townhalls.
