CASHIER (Former Employee), Vancouver, BC KITSALINO – August 13, 2012
Pros: the proas were that i got along with everyone.
Cons: i would get some very angry cusrtomers but you must not get mad at them
When ui was working for Shell Canada in Vancouver it got very busy and other times it was slow. I got along great with the customers and also got along with my co-workers. I remember there was this one customer that would come in every week-end and we would chat when it was slow and he would tell me about his trip to Africa with his family and he would – more... bring me a large box of doughnuts for me and my family.The hardest part of the job was when it got really busy there would be a line up from the door to the outside of the side walk and also a line up at the window. There would also be arguments and people would try to yell at me and tell me to hurry up because they are in a hurry, but you have to be patient and tell them that i will be with them as soon as i can, so then they would go some where else. My boss had told me that i did a good job handling the situation. I did not get angry i was calm and collective and polite with the customers. – less

Engineer (Current Employee), Scotford – July 17, 2012
Pros: every 2nd friday off
Cons: all of the above
Management is trained from within and are typically poor performers technically therefore they are moved into supervisory roles as there is no other placement for them. No accountability for the work therefore poor performers and top performers are ranked equally. Terrible morale within the organization. Compensation used to be great but now Shell is – more... low end and HR guidelines are controlled by the Dutch. As a young engineer Shell is a good starting point to gain experience. If you are a senior engineer, don't waste your time, you will be dissapointed. – less

Customer Service Representative (Full / Part Time) (Current Employee), Mississauga, ON – April 23, 2012
my typical day at work is operating cash register and help the customer in chosing the oil products we carry in our store. at the end of my shift i have to do end of day closing and than i have to do bank reconcilation, lottery reconcilation, complete the paperwork for that day. the one thing i really enjoy on my job is to interact with new people on – more... daily basis. – less
Pros: pay well, job secure, opportunities for on-line training
Cons: bad management, too many managers less specialists.
The pay was great. As a super giant oil corporate, if your key board is broken, you better buy it for yourself, because it takes a month after have filled up the form to get a replacement. Over concern in safety at work site. Most of managers are white and tall. I don't see Asian/African face managers in Heavy Oil. Too many meeting/talking, less technical – more... works – less
