      Shell offers very flexible hours, if you need extra hours to work it's not a problem. You also get to meet and help all kinds of different and unique people. The manager I had was one of the best ever to work for.


      Working at Shell even though you get to meet and help many different kinds of people, it can be a little bit scary if you have to work the night shift. The pay at Shell is not very good and you don't get any benefits.

        It is an oil major and job has the prestige associated with it. It also has robust procedures and an excellent safety culture.


        They are very bureaucratic and slow to respond to change. They also feel that they are the best pay masters in the industry and actually they are not..

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Portfolio Manager

      I have an upcoming interview with LBBW and I'm keen to prepare effectively. If you have experience with LBBW's interview process, could you please share your insights, including the interview format, common questions, valued skills or knowledge areas, recommended preparation resources, and any general tips for success? Your guidance would be immensely valuable not only to me but also to others preparing for interviews with LBBW. Thank you for your assistance.

      Why is it that every employer once extensive experience and at least a decent college degree like a bachelors as requirements for a position? But then, when they see that you’re older, they still go through the trouble of interviewing you, even though you can clearly see that you are treated with ageism . I just don’t understand mentality in today’s day and age when it comes to interviewing processes as I feel like I am 18 again .


      Account Executive

      Another day, another rejection email. I've been job searching since May and have made it fairly far in some interview processes only to get rejected at the final stages. Even after asking for constructive feedback, I get nothing back. How do you stay motivated to keep pressing on when you face rejection after rejection? Genuinely looking for advice / solidarity.
