Fast paced
Great benefits and good overall working culture. However, limited opportunities to progress and be promoted. The workplace culture is generally good. It is a good place to start your career.

Its a place for school leavers. After completing grade 12
12 hour shift standing all day long, with minimum wage. That doesn't help to build a family and meeting needs, worst place to work ever, since the is no room for growth they don't even have channels, to build yourself.

I must come early to prepare my day
I love Monday mostly because is the day where I have meeting with team for half hour to communicate the client's priorities i do this on Monday so that the rest of the week is well organized.

I Learned that when you are organized,everything will go smoothly.


Client is a king.


Make sure that we have enough staff so we can meet our clients needs.


When suppliers do not deliver on time and clients are not happy.


When we meet our clients needs and satisfication
Pros
Advatanges
Cons

Productive and social place
Shell Noordgesig is a very busy service station with long working hours. Though it has long working hours, we (cashiers) get to meet and socialise with different kinds of people and get to understand their attitude towards the company. The hardest part of the job is having to work alone on month-end, which requires a high level of energy and concentration. The most enjoyable part of the job is when my supervisors delegate some of their tasks to me and working as a team to solve a problem/s.
Pros
incentives
Cons
long working hours

Shell SA is one of the best petroleum companies.
In this company I have attained so many skills. Working with diverse cultures is one of best experiences I received. Respect and Honesty is a must have in this organization. Safety comes first, all else comes after. There is work life balance at Shell.

They are always looking for ways to upgrade the stuff. There is constant communication within the management and employees. Shell is the leading petroleum company in South Africa.
