GSA/Cashier (Former Employee) – Welland, ON – 30 May 2013
At Petro Canada, for the duration of my employment with this company I worked the midnight shift, however when I first started out I would work a typical day shift. The main duties were to attendant to customers, keep the store tidy and assist any suppliers that would come into the store. Once I started to work a midnight shift, the duty list entailed a little more than the day time shift, stocking the shelves, cleaning all parts of the store, newspaper inventory, cleaning outdoors, etc. For the most part I worked a lone, as each shift was only assigned to one person. The hardest part about the job was working a lone a night, when your trying to clean but making sure that customers are attended to, but I did enjoy the job overall because I was able to gain more skills and experience.
Friendly management but poor training and unclear guidelines
Cashier (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 May 2017
I enjoyed working the nightshift and interacting with the customers but the lack of communication from management led to conflict with coworkers over who was supposed to do what. High levels of gossip and employee theft led to a high turnover rate for workers.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 May 2017
Their policy are worst, very low pay.. every other month there is a mystery shop where u have to be 100 % otherwise u will loose ur job, as a employee u have to deal with 800 to 1000 customers per 8 hour shift.
Great Management, fun place to work, developed good relationships
CASHIER (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 17 May 2017
The management was fantastic, concerns and issues were address immediately. A typical 8 hour work day included cleaning, stocking, inventory of tobacco and lottery, end of day closing responsibilities. The most enjoyable part of the job was our regular customers and the relationships that were built.
Petro-Canada is a great location to work for younger individuals looking for work experience, or older individuals who have no desire to improve themselves and are accepting of a position with no room for further self-development or career advancement.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – New Westminster, BC – 10 March 2017
As with any convenience store job, aside from assisting customers, there is always cleaning. The management at the stores I worked with were very friendly and flexible. Hardest part of the job was dealing with the trouble customers and the typical shoplifters.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 13 February 2017
I mainly took care of customers but there is very big imbalance between the workers that work there an no one expresses it or does anything about it. It was my very first jobs and I learned a lot from it such as being calm in certain situations and knowing how to problem solve on the spot. It taught me how to treat customers in the most effective way to be able to have them back in the store.
Manager (Former Employee) – Fox Creek, AB – 12 January 2017
I was really happy working for Petro-Canada (Max Fuel Distributors Ltd) Fox Creek, AB.
Petro-Canada has many opportunities and room for advance, most people are awesome and very professional, excellent team players and nice.
Petro-Canada is not just a job it is a university.
The hardest part of the job is as usual at the beginning to learn the main scope of work, but within the time becomes so easy and enjoyable, every day you can learn more useful things, networking and creating excellent customer relations is a key part of the success. As manager you have the chance to create a good profile, and you have all the support you need, hire people you believe are awesome assets for the company and loyal to Petro-Canada and the marketer you are managing for. If you work honestly and focused, they really value your contribution to the company. One of the things I love the most is the fact that they always listen to you and have respect for your opinion and help you to achieve your goals, projects within the company and always they like to accept your suggestions to improve every facility in all aspects, safety, health, use of PPE when applicable, I love the weekly safety meeting and the monthly safety meetings with the health and safety manager.
Flexibility, team work, room for advance, benefits.
Customer Service Associate in Ottawa, Canada (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 31 October 2016
Great customer relationship experience with tremendous support from the management and co-workers. The work hours are fun filled because I get chance to interact with people from all age and different working backgrounds. The best part of working as CSA is that here people instantly give feedback and scope of learning is spontaneous.
