Minimum wage

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good to learn customer service. Good entry level job. Too many procedures for minimum wage. Mostly work alone. Expect you to handle most of the situation. Unnecessary expectations in customer service like asking gsa to say “my pleasure” when thanked by a guest.

Toujours plus

Si vous aimez travailler, c'est la place. Ya toujours quelqu'un qui ne rentre pas et nous devons faire de l'over pour remplacer ou encore travailler pour 2 même 3. Ça s'appelle être TOUJOURS PRÊT ET DISPONIBLE. Ah et ça ajoute des tâches obligatoire mais pas nécessairement essentiel au travail, à faire "à tous les jours" à chaque mois. À un moment, ya autre chose à faire de bien plus essentiel.

A typical day at work was seeing and serving regular customers I learned safety in a fun environment the hardest part was not able to go to the washroom when I had to go the best part was working for my manager


I didn't have a boss over my head telling me what to do I knew what to do and I did it


Not enough pay

Simple Job

I'm employed at Pero Canada as a part-time cashier. It is a good job for international students who want to earn money for their living expenses. It is good for those who do not have any skills or qualifications to get into a certified field. No need for training

Stressful but rewarding job

Stressful and fast-paced environment, but good pay and long shifts. Can build bonds with regular customers. It is either extremely busy or completely dead, so hard to pass the time.

Tiring workplace

Where I worked I had an issue with my pay and I had to wait almost 2 months for my first pay for some nonsense excuses and it was my first job. As soon as I got this first pay that’s when I left. Happened to one of my friends too didn’t receive one of his pay for some invalid reasoning

Sound job.

If you're looking for a reliable job that's not very stressful then this is a perfect location. After the reason's I left were addressed I'd work back for that place if I needed too. Clean store, simple instructions, good locals, and an understanding-family man-manager. I enjoy my time there.


Calm workplace, clean location, fun staff

I working for Petro-Canada as GSA. Overall, Petro-Canada is a good employer: the pay is good but they buy your time, effort and commitment with that money. It is not a very exciting industry. It is better to have it instead of remaining jobless.

A safe place to work

Working at Petro-Canada gave me a lot of confidence. We get to meet a lot of people from different backgrounds. Overall , it is really enjoyable to work there. Little bit exhausting though.


Free drinks


sometime you get to meet extremely rude people.

Managers are a toss up

Owner started off hands on, but went hands off and everything got worse. Petro itself ignores or passes the buck on issues, things aren't dealt with efficiently. Managers vary greatly, between fun and positive and borderline awful. You can be put anywhere at any of the owners sites. Standards hit the dirt during the pandemic and never recovered


Easy job


Aggressively competitive owner

Helpful, but not a fun workplace

Petro Canada was good for many reasons. The staff is helpful and always there to answer your questions to the best of their ability. The workplace is not very collaborative and rather dull as a con.

Not Bad

Decent work. Workflow can be very slow and even, but sometimes very busy and fast-paced depending on your position and time of year. Management was great and I felt cared about!
