Simple easy job
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK1 August 2018
A typical day at work would be to come in, change coffee, wash the bathroom, then stand around at the till and serve customers.
I learned about different brands of cigarettes from king size to regular sizes 20 and 25 packs and cigars. I think managements was very friendly and understanding that we are humans and not robots and everyone learns differently. The culture has people from different countries and backgrounds working there. Hardest part of the job was understanding and learning the different cigarette packages because they all look the same to me and I don't smoke so it was so hard for me to get the correct ones for customers. The most enjoyable part of the job was operating the gas pumps on the till and operating the lotto machine.
Pros
Easy job no heavy lifting
Cons
Standing for long periods of time, no job advancement, no hours

Reservoir Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB5 July 2018
I worked for Shell for 13 years. My managers were always supportive, and they genuinely care about developing their staff. Almost everyone I worked with was cooperative and friendly. The company will give you the ability to develop your technical as well as your soft skills. Everyone is valued. The managers will understand what you are good at, and they will find the right position for you. I highly recommend this company. I will always miss them.
Pros
This company promotes cooperation, teamwork and work-life balance.

A highly decentralized approach which allows everyone to learn by making the decision of store operations. A company which actually think of the work-life balance of the employees.
