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

Working in a garage can be very busy one minute and dead quiet the next. Apart from staffing the tills, you have to keep on top of the food and shelf filling and watch out for shoplifters and drive outs. BP are hot on teaching the relevant legislation but the daily running of the garage is usually down to the shift manager. Get a good one and no problem but get a bad one and nobody wants to do any work for him/her.
Pros
Staff discount on food
Cons
24/7/365 operation and sometimes not enough staff

Managers are always there if you need to talk, staff are friendly and always up for a laugh, always on the go and hard to progress in the company but apart from that if your looking for a job where you are always on the go as it is a demanding job then I think bp is the company for you

BP is one of the good places to work in England . i really liked the BP policy of training staff through the use of videos and encouraging them to do the training with the use of points based system which gives extra points if you complete the training properly

If you want to be worked like a dog for minimum wage this the job for you, they expect you to work without a break and many times by yourself, if you need to use the toilets you have to make sure there nobody on the forecourt to run. You have to serve, watch for shop lifters and watch for drive offs! And if you have a drive off you have to ring police at same time as serving customers! You have to put the morning delivery away while trying to serve customers and watch the forecourt!! If you want to work nights on your own with no break and no extra pay then BP the job for you. There is no place to advance your career

Management was horrible - felt like I didn't belong. Some staff were lovely, others were very rude. Dealt with a lot of rude customers and there were some safety issues with violent people - not much security.
Pros
Paid bi-weekly
Cons
Everything else

Fast paced and progressive environment for the right candidate. Management was kind and understanding and the job was physically demanding at times. The staff were a great team and supported one another.

didnt actually work for BP I was employed by franchise managers they haven’t got no experience in management , don’t have no customer service skills, manners are appalling.. expect staff to do there jobs with no pay rise or a thank you .. 4 managers in 2.5 years of working there .. loved my job but as soon as these ppl starting coming in things changed.. from me starting there in may 2016 there was around 12 staff I left November 2018 and there was 3 of their origanal staff left due to poor management over the years
Pros
Friendly customers, some staff where great to work with
Cons
Poor management, never paid on time, not enough stock at times, prices far to high than what they should be

An immensely high pace working environment where customer service skills have to be optimum at all times, working on tills dealing with money where sharp numetrical skills are key. Giving a warm welcome and serving customers while managing the shop floor to ensure merchandise is always full.

Normal retail environment. Blame culture going around and a lot of uncertain hours. Management willing to help but there is no room for promotion really.

This is a great place to work. A fast flowing workplace serving customer fuel and items in the wild bean cafe like coffee and sandwishs along with hot food
you will be asked to stock rotate stock and take in devilerys.
Pros
50% off food in store
Cons
Grumpy customers lol
