job is handy enough, people working with you are good,but the management really changes the place. depending on how well the managers like you depends on how many hours you get regardless of contracts. Managers of smaller departments have serious power trips and treat some staff like lesser human beings
seen a lot of HR nightmare moments in my time working, managers bullying staff and showing clear favouritism towards others.

area managers tend to treat staff like dirt under their shoes when visiting unless your'e a manager.

This place is a joke breaks the law and doesn't care about staff regardless of what age you are. How they get away with audits is beyond me as they don't follow the rules or regulations at all. I've been working in retail 15 years and had to correct managers here on my entitlements as they tried to tell me different and I knew my rights better than them. Their prices are crazy aswell a usual pr

It's by no means easy being sale assistant in big forecourt but it's enjoyable when you know what you're doing and how quickly you adapt to understanding the small things that need to be done on daily basis but the best part of working there is how fast the day goes when you've got delivery coming in and keeping up the sales while getting to know the regular customers and it just makes it nice to have good co-workers and regulars.
Pros
Free meals, very friendly co-workers, lovely regular customers

Applegreen is an absolute joke of a company. They don’t care about you or your life and they will not give you a rota to suit you. You get a bare minimum 30 minute break for a 9 hour or maybe more day and if your late by even a minute they dock you 15 minutes from your day. Management are an absolute joke. I was bullied by my manager and there was nothing to be done about it but smiling and getting on with it. I wouldn’t recommend it at all. You don’t even get staff meals, discounts or anything of the sort you’ve to pay full price for everything as they don’t care for their staff.
Pros
None.
Cons
Everything.
