Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Hornchurch, Greater London15 December 2017
I was working in a Wild bean M&S BP, it was 3 businesses in one place but it was too much work for 2 or 3 people working in one shift. We had to do cafe work, supermarket work as well as the fuel side and I think there weren't enough staff to get everything done to a standard they wanted. The customers were fantastic, most staff were nice but some were very rude. The cleaning standards were high like a 5 star hotel . This job will suit someone who doesn't mind working different shifts and likes keeping busy all the time at a fast pace. The night pay is only 50p/ hour more than day rate and it messes up your body clock. It takes a couple of days to recover from a night shift. 50% off lunch is only valid to a certain amount and you can't take it home! If you want to take food home you only get 15% off.
Pros
Half price lunch, paid break, plenty of overtime
Cons
Night shifts, on your feet all the time, rude staff

Organisational Effectiveness Analyst (Former Employee) –  London8 December 2017
If they don't want you they will get rid of you but there are major benefits if you work with the right people.
Typical corporate. It's not what you now it's who you know.

Serving customers on tills is necessary. Other duties include merchandising, cleaning and general upkeep of warehouse and stock areas preventing slips and trips.

Management are kind and fair. Least enjoyable aspect is the irregular work pattern.
Pros
50% discount on lunch. Convenient location. Competitive Wage.
Cons
Irregular work pattern. Serving on tills.

Good place to work but pay isn’t great
Duty Manager (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, Cambridgeshire19 October 2017
BP is a great place to work in terms of management, holiday allowances and flexible shift patterns but pay for a duty Manager is pretty bad. You’re expected to be able to do the same job as a store manager and store deputy manager but pay is only marginally more than being a CSA and if you take into account the extra hours duty’s do without being paid for because it’s a salary position, CSAs end up on more than you.
Pros
Good Management, great environment to work in, 50% off lunch
Cons
Pay

Great teams, just short staffed with too high of a workload.
Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Basingstoke, Hampshire17 October 2017
Very much the same tasks day in and out with little variation. Not enough team members to cover all of these tasks. Great teams with great attitudes. HO keep changing how processes work in store without looking at how this impacts stores.

Shambles
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) –  Sonning10 October 2017
I wouldn't advise anyone with a short temper to work at BP. A lot of the members of staffed are poorly trained and extremely lazy with the management lacking in any skills to control and maintain and good day to day business.
