Decent peers

Liked the autonomy of working alone. I worked night shift and the pace of work was decentThe pay however was pretty bad to say the leastHardest part was cleaning the machinesTrying to stay warm, and trying to not be bored out of your witsWhat I learned is there are some seriously greedy owners out there who have no idea you used to get some of the towns finest visiting, so an ability to respect someone from wherever they have came from and for whatever they do, they are are a soul first and foremost, so snobs need not apply as you would be far too offended by the brutal truth of real living, which for some reason home and house mags don’t seem to cover!Most enjoyable part? Meeting people who you would never have ever met nor given the time of day with in the normal world, you will have bonds and be on first name terms withThe desperate young dads who are so poor and hungry, they will wait around till you do the reductions, just so they can feed and make happy their beloved wife and childrenYou will also get to know well, the local scratch card addicts, the alcohol addicts as well as all of the insomniacsThe night workers totally oofed getting home at 5 am, as well as the 19 to 20 year olds, being dragged out by a firm still clearly getting acclimatised to real life, by being dragged back with the Poe hoodie to get in the oofing van now or they gonna be late!The late people, the darkest st and The most desperate.. and yet the most empathic and the riches in experience people who you could ever have the privelige to walk in your path.. yes these are the people.. these - 


Could eat just gone sell by if you were hungry, and as long as the work was done it was good


Pay was disgusting and expectations were illegal

Learnt a lot

As an intern at Shell's London office, I had the privilege of gaining invaluable insights into the energy industry that have significantly shaped my professional journey. My time at Shell was nothing short of transformative, and I am thrilled to share my positive experience here.During my internship, I was exposed to a dynamic and inclusive work environment where creativity and innovation were not only encouraged but also celebrated. The mentorship and guidance I received from the experienced professionals at Shell were instrumental in expanding my knowledge and refining my skills.

Flexible shifts and great customers but management is not the greatest. Not many benefits either considering it’s a big company. Understaffed often.

I wouldn't say I loved my time at Shell but did find it enjoyable at times, working with a good team certainly helps. As I was only part-time i did struggle to get extra shifts

Lovely colleagues but a stressful job

Lone worker early starts and late finishes. Some lovely staff and customers but a lot to cope with during busy spells, working with equipment that regularly fails. Regular staff training and great manager.

Great place to work

Opportunities have to be seeked and taken. Autonomous working envionrment with flexibility and good work life balance. Benefits package is market leading

Shift typically started slowly then picked up during the weekend, definitely not time to clock-watch!

You have to get there 15 minutes early to check the safe, your float (till) and fridge/freezer temps. You may have to fill up the cigs/shop. Yeah it's only a cashier job, but I feel like if you like cars, then the job ain't too bad.

Fun place to work

Some days are more laid back than others, delivery days are more fast paced, great team work from staff to help, management are great they’re not afraid to get stuck in and are always helpful.

Terrible company to work for they treat staff terrible

Far too many rules and regulations they keep changing the goal posts so you don’t know if you’re coming or going most days. If you complain about anything they do there best to exit you from the business




Overworked and underpaid

I've noticed quote a lot of negative feedback about Shell , what really surprises me are the expectations from a Global Corporation by its employees past and present.

Not advisable

Over 2 years working as a cashier at Shell, I would say it is a very poor working environment. Very cliquey and favorable shifts are given out according to manager's discretion. No chance whatsoever of job progression, regardless of performance. Nightshifts are given the lion's share of the workload and are not paid at a higher rate, despite the unsociable hours impacting on their personal lives. Couldn't even provide me with a suitable uniform- had to source and buy my own. Multiple 16 hour shifts worked with no break. Expected to come to work at a moments notice. The list goes on.
