This is a good company to work for with room for progression - able to attend training courses for development. However, expect to work unsocial hours.

Hard work but rewarding
Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Oxford, Oxfordshire31 July 2019
They expect you to work for your money especially the managers. But even as Duty managers you will be expected to know the same stuff as the store manager.
The only down side is the store manager will take credit for your work and if things go wrong then guess what that will be your fault, if you can handle this then BP is a great place to work they just need to improve on the store managers attitudes.
Every day is different and you never know what to expect when you turn up for work each day. They also understand about the importance of a work life balance.
Pros
Discount

Great place too work.
Deputy Manager (Former Employee) –  Amersham, Buckinghamshire4 October 2018
When I first started working for BP it was new and exciting.
I met a lot of interesting customers and the staff was willing to assist whenever needed.
They had one of the best training system I ever used in my entire years working in retail.
The development growth was not too easy nor it was hard, you just had to focus and also willing to show that you had a I CARE / CAN DO attitude.
Pros
50% off lunch and 15% off your shopping.
Cons
24 hours call out.

Ok place to work
Deputy Manager (Former Employee) –  Warwick, Warwickshire16 March 2018
Working in store was enjoyable and a very busy and fun filled place to work. Higher management made job difficult and relocated you whenever they felt like it, which made it difficult to stay

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.

Good prgressions

In BP it really does look after you. You are safe and looked after on a health and well being respect.
The work life balance however is difficult consecutively. 1 week it could be perfect but other times it can be very diffciult to see anyone other than the people on your shift.
Pros
discounts and annual bonus scheme
Cons
long hours, no appreciation a lot of the time, no steady work life balance.

worse company to work.
Deputy Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Farnham, Surrey12 March 2017
I was recruited as a Deputy store manager. They did not given me proper training and demands quite a lots. The management bullied and harassed me all the time. My stress level was high at work place. The area manager Scott was so mean and love his own people. He was after his own bonus and promotion and did not care about the business.Store manager was sitting in office and smoking out side and having laugh. Once I have been enforced come to working during my high temperatures threating to thrown out of job, if i don,t come to work. I can advice to every one don,t work for this company please. There is no justice and fairness.
Pros
none
Cons
unsoicial hours

Secure
Deputy Manager (Current Employee) –  UK27 December 2014
A variety of tasks to complete daily.
The company sends management on a lot of courses so there are a lot of chances to learn and to progress. Pay is reviewed frequently and bonuses are paid.
The stores are open 24/7 all year round so expect to work very unsociable hours and shift patterns are not set so they vary a lot.

Productive and challenging workplace
Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) –  London25 January 2013
BP Hillingdon is a busy and pressurized retail environment which means work has to be well planned in advance and very organised via rotas and work schedules.
Legality and due diligence play a vital role in this environment as health and Safety must be adhered to especially by the management team which generally means a great degree of administration is involved. Due to the highly technical layout of stores electronic apparatus as well as forecourt equipment and highly volatile nature of fuels held in storage and sold (wet stock).
All wet and dry stock has to be accounted for to allow for the greatest profit margins possible so staff must be trained to do this to allow targets to be met.
The most enjoyable part of the job for me is definitively interacting with the customers , hearing what they have to say helps improve the way we work sometimes and the praise offered is always appreciated.
Pros
good pension and life insurance packages
Cons
long hours
