Environment de travail agreable

J’ai aimée mon experience de travail. Le Propriétaire est egalement le Gérant il est vraiment à l’ecoute de ses employés et de leurs besoins. J’ai dû quittée car je demenageais sinon je n’aurais pas quittée. J’adorais mon équipe mon employeur et ma fidèle clientèle. Je recommande fortement!

Pros

Propriétaire à l’écoute de ses employés

Cons

Aucune assurances ni de placements ou REER

Very good place to work at.

Did night shifts. had work only at the beginning and end of the shift. Manger was very chill. Schedule was also flexible and good with studies. Can be hectic in summers

Productive and very friendly staff and customers

Staff are friendly and very courteous. Customers are always happy and satisfied. It is one of the best places to work . Managment is very good and it is a stress free job

Not a career obviously

Probably not different than any other gas station. I got to meet a lot of different people but the bare minimum pay rate is not enough to survive in BC.

It's a good starting point

I worked there while taking my college courses and it's fairly neutral. Management will vary from place to place, but my sites were always great. The biggest negatives I can think of are the customers and the pay. It's minimum wage, but what do you really expect. The customers can range from fun regulars to people that will threaten your life because a pump isn't working. If you can handle yourself in those situations and don't mind a bit of menial gruntwork it's a fine place to work.

Best place to work (imoho)

Very nice pay and benefits. Good people. Nice working environment. Double time for overtime. Can order a meal after overtime. Some reviews are bad but probably those are the kinds of people that do not know how to make friends or make their job easy, or just do not want to work.Work smart, not hard.

Pros

Very good pay, great supervisors

Cons

Not working here

Productive place to work

Coworkers are pretty decent people for the most part and like to have fun at work, duties are really simple and easy to navigate, good conversation with customers, interesting things happen all the time so it keeps you on your toes lol. Management is easygoing

Pros

Discounts, coworkers, management, flexibility

Was an ok place to work

It all depends on who you worked under, seen a few different managers go by and some were better than others. I did find that there was a lot of favoritism.

Good place to work as part time or as a first job

Its a entry level job and is best if someone is looking to work part time while studying or wants to start their first job. This job teaches you on how to deal with customers and what working industry works.

Pros

Easy going

Cons

No breaks

Very Depressing

This work is depressing. you just have to stand there for 8 hours and listen complaints from customers about the problems that management refuses to fix.

Decent Working environment with unprofessional upper management

I worked at Petro Canada for 6 months and overall the experience working in the actual store was decent. You have to deal with the odd unruly customer or person who comes in with way too many lottery tickets but overall the day-to-day work is alright. The main problem I had was with the owners/upper management. Every 2 weeks the district manager will come into the stores to do a surprise inspection and regardless of how well you do your job, they will discipline you for simply checking your phone or even sitting down when there is no one in the store, and that discipline entails anything from cutting your hours to outright termination. Thats right, these people will write you up simply for sitting down. So if you are thinking of applying at Petro-Canada be warned that no matter how well you do your job, you are expendable.

Challenging

Where you will meet lot of people with diffrent mindset from that we can learn many things. Multitasking and conmunication skills will be developed for sure. Hardwork with combination of smartness will promote you to next level.

Pros

Free coffee

Cons

8 hrs shift

Unprofessional, no communication.

Highly do not working here, no communication at all! Does not train you and expect you to do know everything right off the bat without any knowledge. I did everything that was listed for cleaning and I was told not even 20% of the duties weren’t done ! Unbelievable & I put my time and effort to make sure everything was perfect and in good cleaning condition.
