Retail Supervisor (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 October 2017
I learned so many things working in shell Gas Sation were the prioritize the safety of everyone. Learned how to deal with a different kind of customer. I am able to learn different culture and get along with my co-worker. The hardest part of the job is when you are working alone and have some problem outside and you need to attend them. But the most enjoyable part of the job is meeting good customers, learn something from them and listening to their stories.

Great salary and benefit but inefficient work culture
Project Engineer (Engineer-In-Training) (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 5 June 2017
Great salary and benefit with inefficient work culture, mainly due to the huge variety of the employees and what they care about, especially on site. Hard to compare with the local oil companies operating in the same area.
Decent Company, But still needs a union to ensure fair treatment
Predictive Maintenance Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary, Alberta – 19 May 2017
Shell is generally a good company. However they have some internal systems with Occupational Health that need to be updated and improved. And in certain cases supervision is not up speed with modern day practices
Good salary and benefits, but you're just a cog in the wheel
IT Program Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 May 2017
Shell provides an excellent compensation package, however I struggled with feeling fully engaged and enthusiastic about the work. There is a significant level of bureaucracy which greatly delays decision making.

typically my day at works consists of running customers through the till, assisting people at the pumps and pumping propane. As well as closing cleaning/management duties. What makes me enjoy going to my job is the management, I work for great people which makes going to work a lot easier. The job is pretty stress free other than the odd difficult customer
Productive and very busy place to work! Enjoyed the staff!
Cashier and Customer Service (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 May 2017
You had customers to deal with regarding fuel purchase,lotto purchase and merchandize as well as upselling! I enjoyed the customers and you got to know the regular ones. Great place to work kept busy and your shift went fast! It could get pretty hectic at times! Enjoyed the times making fresh coffee,cleaning and stocking shelfs and the coolers which gave you a break from the front cashier! Cashing out at the end of your shift with the other cashier could get hectic especially when you didn't balance or were out in lotto, cigarettes or cash! I had a great boss who was funny and encouraging!
Cashier (Current Employee) – Iron Bridge, Ontario – 14 May 2017
A typical day includes me talking to certain everyday customers and providing them with an experience which keeps them coming back to us rather than our competitors. At the beginning of the shift, i sign on the the system under my name. As the cashier position, i have to engage with customers, stack the shelves, notice inventory that needs to be ordered, count the lottery tickets before closing. When i have closing shifts, i have to maintain and clean the workplace before leaving.
