Would not recommend to my dog if it’s still managed by same person that been there for the past 2 years.
wilsons esso in brasdor NS has the worse manager I’ve ever worked for/with. She shouldn’t be employed as even a full service pumper. She has little to no ability on how to talk/deal with customers oremployees.
The only pros is it’s a paying job which is hard to come by in Cape Breton.
Too many. Number 1 -poor management. Manager shouldn’t even be employed.
I was recruited from a competitor, I moved into an assistant manager roll within 3 months and a manager roll after a year .. co managers were very helpful training was always provided, treated fairly all around ..if you had the right staff hired your job was pretty sweet.
Wilson's is a great place to work if you are looking to grow and advance. They offer training for many different positions are always look to hire from within first. There are also a variety of other businesses owned by Wilson's so you may begin as a cashier in the store but end up working as and IT consultant, a home heat technician or in their security office. A lot of great options for someone looking to move forward into a new career path.
I find the company very very stressful. They expect way to much an treat you like your replaceable way to easy. The management does not follow the rules that they set for employees which don't look very good. And the 2 years I worked for them I didn't feel appreciated at all.
Depending on which location you work at, it can be slow or fast-paced. Gas stations are not required to give their employees breaks under the labour laws, but people who smoke are free to do so seemingly whenever. There are many issues with management. They will often push many of their responsibilities onto the part-time staff. Managers change often and are not held to the same standards as employees. If they are, they aren't observed enough for anyone to do anything about it.
No breaks, long hours, on feet all day
Wilson's is a company that really cares about its employees. They offer the best scholarships of any employer and they always promote from within (definitely a company you can start at the bottom at and work your way to the top). The company is managed well overall however at an individual store level, it can be dodgy (there are some questionable managers). An excellent company if you are looking for part-time work, an okay company if you are looking for full-time is. Full-time get basic benefits but they pay is low comparatively speaking.
Excellent Scholarship Program, Medical/Dental
Some individual stores are mismanaged
The employees over all are fun to work with and I love the customers, fast pace. Interesting place to work most days. Positive atmosphere with the staff but not the manager. Manager has his favorite staff members and they rule the store. Staff that have been there for a long time dont get as many hours as staff that has only been there a couple years of few months. The part time staff usually gets full time hours but wont be put on as full time. Over all if the management would change it would be a much better place.
The staff, customers and fast pace
Evening shifts, management holds gruges, the day staff is rude and lazy.
Help us improve!
