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.
Good for students who need money for tuition fees.

Material Handler / Shipper & Receiver (Former Employee) – Brockville, ON – 3 July 2017
Shell was a fun job despite my co-workers. I was a "temp" there. There was an unwritten rule about the treatment of all temporary employees. All of us were bullied and otherwise mistreated by all warehouse staff. Management refused to acknowledge there was a problem and turned a blind eye towards it. It was a 2 year contract after which you were laid-off for 6 months. All temporary employees then had the option of returning for another 2 year term. No one ever came back after their 6 month lay-off. No surprise there. In 2014, the entire full-time warehouse staff were fired. The warehouse is now contracted out to an outside warehousing company. Karma is real.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 24 June 2017
Good for people who are willing to talk to strangers and good for those who aren't short tempered and won't get mad easily because some customers will get you angry and the one bad thing that I can think of that I don't like is that when a drive off happens and the license plate is covered the managers/owners get mad at you and sometimes they want you to pay for it
