Worked there for 4 years until a new manager swept in and turned a dislike to me instantly. Loved my job in the beginning right up until October'20 but the management has become horrendous over the course of the last 7 months or so. Seen 3 managers come and go since being there, all of which were lovely until very recently.
Pros
Free subway per shift
Cons
Management speak down to you, always trying to put you down, one rule for you and a different rule for others

Always something to do. The team you work with is always there for you, and always ready to have a laugh, apart from that there's always someone to stab you in the back.
Pros
None
Cons
Well, I cant name those.

I worked at stechford shell in Birmingham. I was there for about 2 months. In that 2 months I was charged for 2 drive off which both came out of my wage. It's so wrong how the manager just take drive off out of my wage. Also we used to get people come in nicking a bottle of wine. Nothing I can do as I work alone in the late evening. No manager around. Customer took the wine and it came out of my wage.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Long hours drive off come out of your wage as well as stolen goods

One of the best jobs i have had. You get your busy periods and the quiet ones. Management was decent. Friendly but can be fair when need to. Rate of pay could be better. 8.72 (what ever your age is) for days and £9 for nights. Not worth it.
Pros
Management
Cons
Un fair share of shifts

Wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Money pinching owners. Took money out of my wages when customers drove off and didn't pay for fuel. Awful pay. No structure and both support. Because I messaged the owner asking why I have had money taken from my wages I had to clean all the tile sin the toilet top to bottom.
Pros
Discount on foods.
Cons
Managers

While the staff are great to work with, the true issue is the balance of work and rest. When you are the only person working, it can be highly stressful.
Pros
Great staff, managers are okay.
Cons
No breaks, awful customers and highly stressful.

I worked at shell for 3.5 years in total and it was okay, the customers make the job a lot better and bearable. The pay isn't bad considering it it a very easy job to do. You don’t get breaks or time to use the loo as you are alone 95% of the time. The staff turnover is ridiculously high as the manager isn’t qualified enough to manage staff, her communication skills are lacking and she can be extremely rude, she came to work late and hungover multiple times while I worked there and was not pleasant to be around. I finally left to pursue a different career and my mental health is a whole lot better for it. When it gets to a point you dread going to work you know it’s time to leave.
Pros
Nice customers
Cons
No break, manager, no incentives.

I am a Muslim woman wearing hijab and I love the fact that both my manager and team ,that comes from different backgrounds, are considered caring and supportive .I enjoy working with customers and cheering them up and they show nothing but respect and appreciation. If you are single the salary is good depends on how many shifts you do .
Pros
good work atmosphere, teamwork, multicultural
Cons
None

Not a nice place to work. Shifts get watched constantly on cctv! The two facedness is ridiculous. Not supportive management, manager barely speaks. Only good thing about the job is a small handful of nice staff. High staff turnover due to rubbish management. Also staff who are jobs worth when they aren’t even paid for superior role.
Pros
Lovely regular customers.
Cons
Bad management and two facedness

Honestly, I worked here for almost a year as a customer service assistant and despite liking my job at first I quickly learnt to hate it, the pay isn't too bad but if you had a drive off it was coming out of your wage, you're actually meant to be sent a letter for this but I never did ... it always came out my payslip written down as a "shortage". I worked part-time so I was asked a lot to cover shifts I agreed to do a lot of them but If I ever told my manager that I wasn't available I would have nasty comments and questions such as "Is looking after your nephew more important than your job?" If I was offered to work here again I wouldn't because I was sacked due to another member of staff stealing. The only good thing about the place is free hot food but if you didn't write it down they'd say you were stealing so even that ruins it, oh a lot of the customers like to give you verbal abuse and threaten you too.
Pros
Free food, nice co warkers, free uniform
Cons
Your paying for a drive off, your days off are only if they dont need you to cover, dont book a holiday likely to not get it, sacked because of other people
