Oil Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Thetford – 15 November 2017
BP gives everyone great opportunities to progress through the company very easy going workplace and very down to earth, there is plenty of training which is made fun to do and i really enjoyed working for them
Demurrage Coordinator (Current Employee) – Canary Wharf, Greater London – 15 November 2017
They tell you to be ambitious but management do not like to see it. They see it as a threat. You need to be a graduate to get anywhere, otherwise you will be stuck for years.Graduates are pushed up quickly, and others are held back. I recently didn't get a job because i "Showed too much ambition" in an interview.
Manager Operations (Former Employee) – Shephers bush London – 5 November 2017
A few places where Bp Mines I dont approve of, else company runs on good ethical & moral Grounds. People are valued & given good insurance packages. This was in UK. I dont know how good BP remunerates internationally.
Very challenging environment to work in. Some excellent people work there and there are opportunities to advance one's career. Company, like other oil & gas majors, has suffered from low oil prices and has made many people redundant.
Exciting global company
Uncertainty due to downsizing as a result of low oil price
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.
Good Management, great environment to work in, 50% off lunch
Trainee in engineering (Former Employee) – Kingston upon Hull – 18 October 2017
As I was only there for work experience, I cannot make much of a comment on BP, however, I was treat well and given responsibility. I enjoyed my time at BP, it taught me many things about working, including values, and etiquette
Great teams, just short staffed with too high of a workload.
Deputy Store Manager (Current Employee) – Basingstoke, Hampshire – 17 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.
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Sonning – 10 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.

MSc Intern (Former Employee) – Sunbury – 2 October 2017
Excellent place to work, from the people to the work culture. Constantly challenged me in the everyday work load, and provided adequate support. The BP culture encourages an excellent work life balance, which included flexible working hours and clubs/societies.
