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

fast paced
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.
