Engineer (Former Employee) – Fort Saskatchewan, AB – 13 September 2017
I will always be grateful to have experienced the Shell safety cultured and will take it with me for the rest of my life. Over 11 years, I have gone through 5 roles. There is always a new possibility for a career change. Shell always works towards making high performers, those that are on the lower end do get some help however that depends on the direct supervisors. Be mindful, a low performer for Shell is likely an average performer anywhere else. Shell has a ranking systems and based on that, some will make it to independent contributor, others into management positions and the few groomed to become VPs.
Internship - Production Engineer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 September 2017
Shell is a well established company with many processes in place. For those that do not enjoy such structure, Shell is not the place for you. I enjoyed my work term as a coop student as they seemed to provide many opportunities to grow.
Project Controls Coordinator (Former Employee) – Fort Saskatchewan, AB – 29 August 2017
Shell treats its employees very well. Excellent work/life balance and compensation package. The job security however, is something that you can not rely on. Because of oil price fluctuations, even full-time employees are getting laid off.
Process Engineer - GTL (Former Employee) – QA – 29 August 2017
Working with Shell growing every minute, as a process engineer I had learned a lot. The higher management team was so supportive, expert in their fields so in conclusion working under this supervision you will gain a massive technical knowledge such as preparing P&IDs drawing and modified it when it is required.

Being independent was one of the best dreams of mine.And going to work is a fun experience.You meet new people every day of different cultures and different races. You won't believe that variety of people come there. There are many responsibilities also about security and hazards. You have to be very Active while working.
Logistics Coordinator for Major Maintenance (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 1 August 2017
Working for Shell was a great experience. There was certainly al ot of highs and lows as the company has gone through great periods of transition lately and so many difficult decisions were made. Howver, Shell is supportive of scheduled and fair advancement, a leader in maternity (and paternity) leave for biological and adopted childen, provides an outstanding benefits plan and has endless opportunities for networks, education compensation, training etc.

Strategy (Former Employee) – Canada – 21 July 2017
Success in Shell is massively dependent on your manager. Some are egomaniacs, with their own personal agenda, extremely difficult to work with. Company overall offers great learning opportunities, great benefits and a high stress work environment.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 19 July 2017
It was a good job that wasn't too hard or physically demanding. They trained me well and made sure I didn't work alone until I was ready. Only problem was that I couldn't sit down for the whole 8 hours because it was frowned upon. Wasn't allowed to read/do homework/sit even when no customers were in the lot or store so there was nothing to do. That said, it was a pretty friendly job that I would consider doing again.
You can eat whenever (as long as you're behind the counter in case a customer comes in).
