I enjoyed my time at BP immensely.

The culture puts people first and the learning experiences were excellent.


I had the pleasure of working for very forward thinking and progressive management team in terms of enterprise IT and particularly enjoyed the last 4 years getting hands on exposure migrating BP's on premise databases to the Amazon and Azure clouds.
Pros
progressive IT vision
Cons
none of any real conseqence

Every experience is different but my experience was quiet good , I met new people, and made new social friends. we at BP treat each other as family and as one team.

BP has helped me move up the ranks from a normal CSA at age 19 to and duty manager and potentially onto Deputy store manager just in my 20's .


The environment that BP provides for its team member to up skill them selves is a massive bonus.

Lots of politics poor organisation no structure

Full of double standards


Very much a face fits type of culture. They exploit you and provided you don’t say anything about what not working or not going as it should then your ok, otherwise you are in for it

I am not going to say much but BP is one of the best company I have ever seen. Management are very good. It is a fun and easy place to work but safety is MUST one to have. Not ever days are same. Most of the time are FUN but there are some days I was not happy because I couldn't finish my tasks and made a mistake. Wish I could work more but had to leave due to my medical problem. But I am willing to reply soon as I recover.

BP is one of the places where people are recognised for their hard work and encouraged to advance in career. Diversity is the key element in building a strong and distict team which shows high involvement and capacity to work with different types of customers under all circumstances.

I performed as an acting deputy manager for almost 7 years and I am subsequently well-equipped at dealing with high-pressure situations and high foot traffic, all the while delivering the best service.

As well as carrying out normal expected retail duties I spent the years using my managerial skills to improve the business by monitoring cash conversion reports and KPI files to deliver profit to the business.

I was responsible to study and find areas of improvement on our KPI's each month and continue to deliver great results.

I attended multiple meetings and training courses on a regular basis, sometimes having to travel a very long distance to attend. I am always willing to learn and improve my knowledge and I give 100% to any challenge or opportunity that approaches me.

I was also in charge of our stores TimeTeq payroll system. I ensured employee’s wages were correct by daily monitoring clock in's, sickness and absence accordingly.

I contributed to recruiting a large amount of staff during my time as a manager, interviewing and completing the recruitment admin process with HR regularly. I have a good understanding towards HR and this is something I would like to develop one day.

Company is secure for not having to worry about redundancy but advance ment is hard and benefits poor. If you want to gain basic management it is not a bad company but hours are very unsociable and site managers ca treat lower managers badly with hours.
Pros
Free hot drinks car washes and discounted food.
Cons
unsociable hours

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

Every day is different in a busy and challenging environment. Company is quite a progressive forward thinking retailer. The fact every day is different makes it interesting. The hardest part is the shift work as chops and changes a lot.
Pros
50% Lunch allowance free car washes
Cons
Unsociable hours
