Cashier (Former Employee), Coquitlam, BC – May 2, 2013
Pros: excellent atmosphere
I worked at petro for a little while. I would do the mornings and open the store do all my counts and wait on customers while stocking and cleaning the store. My co workers and manager was the best. He was so understanding as at that point i had a tiny child he worked with me around the hours i could do and it was just such a laid back atmosphere. I – more... liked everything about working there. it just came to the point my husband had been working two jobs and he needed me home with our little girl. Working at petro was not hard. It got busy yes but from all the experience i have dealt with waiting on customers was not difficult. I loved meeting new and different types of people, living out in Vancouver you tend to see so many. It was nice! – less
