Cashier (Current Employee), Calgary, AB – April 18, 2016
Long nights and staff was unfriendly always late pushy and just all around unhelpful. Shifts were unbearable, as i was doing night shift it was long and being the only female working at night was scary.
Supervisor (Current Employee), Oak Bluff, MB – April 15, 2016
Pros: Desirable shifts
Cons: less scope of advancement as there are limited number of posts.
Normally its 8 hour shift I have learnt a lot from my manager like how to complete task, how to set example for other employees, how to train them. Management is excellent as every co worker and managers are approachable and helpful. The hardest part is when some customer get angry and we do our best to resolve their problem.
Station Attendant (Former Employee), Edmonton, AB – April 13, 2016
Pros: Talking with lots of different people.
Cons: Chance of theft and health risks.
I absolutely valued my position at Cottonwood Esso. I would look forward to going to work ever day. A typical day at work for me would include lots of point-of-sale system usage, customer service and sales. The management was among the best I have ever encountered; my coworkers were equally as awesome. My favorite part of the job was the time I was able to spend interacting with my regular customers as well as new customers. I believe I was exceptional at my job because of my ability to engage the customers and suggest and recommend products based on my knowledge of the customers needs. The hardest aspect of working at a Gas Station is the potential for theft or danger; I needed to be alert at all times while maintaining the stores cleanliness and whilst talking with customers. I made close connections with many of my regular customers and brought many repeat shoppers into the store because of my upbeat attitude and kind demeanor.
Productive and busy workplace with generally friendly customers
Gas Attendant (Former Employee), Ardrossan, AB – February 10, 2016
Pros: working with people
Cons: Part time shifts take up majority of weekend
A typical day at work included all my daily responsibilities as well as occasionally changing routine when new products or groceries came in. I learned how to improve customer service through interaction with a variety of people as well as time management and efficiency. The management was awesome there as I was able to get days off when I needed and was allowed to easily switch shifts with other co-workers. The co-workers have a close bond there and are all very friendly and get along good! The most difficult part of the job was when it was slow there at certain times of day and all my duties were finished . The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with so many customers and being around people all of the time.
