Cons: busy gas station.
Esso gas station was a good experience for me. I had the opportunity to learn how to handle customers in stressful work environment.I dealt with cash and deposit and maintain an organized workstation. I learn to stay focused on the job and avoid conflict in a busy work environment. People working here are friendly (including the manager), and meet lots – more... of regular customer to keep them coming.The hardest part of the job is to maintain a busy gas station and at the same time deal with aggressive customers. This was easy by building a good customer relationship, and help them overcome their problems with supervisor's help. Esso gas station was a great experience for i enjoyed learning great customer service, and weekly well paid salary of $11.50/hr. Hard work is also paid by great compliments of the manager. – less

Gas Station Attedant & Food & Drinks (Former Employee), Lakefield, ON – January 5, 2013
Cons: short shifts
A typical day at work would be opening and organizing making sure everything is in perfect order for when customers came. Stocking shelves, bringing in all the ingredients to make food and drinks for the cusomers of Country Style. I learned many things as you do with any job. The staff was always good to work with and I never had any issues. The hardest – more... part of the job would be when you were working the night shift. It is a small business and Country Style is more of a breakfast place so it would get really quiet at night. We didn't make our own doughnuts so you would really have to try hard to find things to do before close. The most enjoyable part of the job was the staff. All down to earth people who are willing to help you with anything you need. – less
Manager (Former Employee), ONTARIO,hwy.36, Lindsay – October 9, 2012
Pros: meeting mostly very nice people.
Cons: there really weren't any.
-very busy from morning till night dealing with customers,employees and every day situations. Dealing with the retail public can be a lot of fun but at times very testing.Managing at the Esso was really quite enjoyable because once i hired my own employees it was fun to come to work.My co-workers were dependable,good workers,and enjoyable to work with.The – more... hardest part of the job were the weather conditions,being outside most of the time on a shift example snow,rain and heat but dressing appropiately would normally resolve these problems.The most enjoyable part of working were the people you met and talked to each day whether they were regulars,salesman,long distant truckers,or local school bus drivers.As time progressed i increased our gas sales and convenience store sales just by getting along very well with customers.Being in this smaller community of Lindsay,if you are well liked it is very easy to have a monopoly on a business .I think i have met a very large portion of the people from in and around the LINDSAY area all in a very positive way. – less
