My time at OTR made me realise 2 very important things—those who work on the front lines, those people you see behind the counter— are probably some of the most resilient people you will ever meet and secondly—when it comes an extremely toxic workplace culture, to the most unrealistic expectations and a morale that nothing is ever good enough despite how hard you work, this is the company for you. The good: Lovely customers, nice store, buy 1 get 1 free coffee, fuel discountThe bad:- Extreme level of micromanagement- Will work really hard and still get told off about small things, no recognition or incentive for hard work - Not appreciated by management and taken advantage of- Unstable hours/one week you'll get lots of shifts, the next week very little: this makes it near impossible to budget- Below standard and highly confusing pay rate system that involved 5 different pay rates depending upon when you worked, what day you worked, what time you worked, how many shifts you worked and if you did morning/afternoon/evening shifts, only morning/only afternoon/only evening or a combination of all 3- The morning rate is less than afternoon shift despite being the busiest time of day, whether you start before or after 1pm will affect your rate of pay as well- A traditional "penalty rate" only applies if you work after midday on Saturday or all day Sunday or only work overnight shifts- Despite working overnight shift, if you work mornings or afternoons too, your rate of overnight pay will be less - Unrealistic expectations regarding workload- Getting rostered on days off - more...
Lovely customers, nice store, half price coffee, fuel discount
Too many to mention
The culture at OTR is poor, There is a culture of "fear" and middle managers are not empowered to speak their minds. Site managers have no autonomy. There is often last minute instructions received which impacts on work life balance. Training in insufficient and the salary is pathetic. The hardest part of the role is trying to balance the requirement of the role with minimal staff. The most enjoyable part of the day is going home.
Team members are required duties on their shifts and follow procedures that the company requires. Sometimes workload between team members find certain team members carry the workload more than often. I’ve also gained relationships with regular customers and kept growing. I learned that when an employee makes a minor mistake they don’t give the employee a second chance. One strike you’re dismissed. Management I’ve experienced with are friendly and willing to help with extra hours where possible or at another store. Supporting management at individual stores aren’t that great and don’t get the support they need. And I believe they need more of a support system instead of doing it alone and to have their back. Workplace culture is friendly and positive. Team members need more support of each other and able to take constructive criticism and work on their performances. Hardest part of the job for the team members is getting a permanent part time job. A lot of the workers are on casual wages. Most of the workers are happy with their job. Some just happy to have a job. Some aren’t so happy with how things are handled and better management from the head office.
Great casual salary, great hours, extra hours from other stores
Poor management from head office, no permanent part time positions, treated unfairly with lack of management in store
Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. Operations Manager is nothing but a bully. Work your butt off with no incentives. Culture boils down to, if you work hard you get hours but if you don't barely get any hours and they wonder why they can't hold onto Staff. The only enjoyable part of the job was the Customers. Health and Saftey on the Fuel side of the business is very bad, but appearance of the Shop is critical. In the near future someone will be killed at work and then they MIGHT fix it, if you are lucky. If you are going to run a Fuel Business take a leaf out of BP Australia's book because you guys have no idea. Fuel and food should never cross over...
Upper Management bullies
My review that it offers a great work place with a friendly work environment that assists the trainee as well giving advice on work/employee development opportunities. I would recommend to anyone looking to establish a retail career that there is a great work ethic and a fair group of employers that will help you reach your goal.
Standing all day
Serving customers at the sales counter. Handling eftpos and cash management at the front counter. Offering face to face advice to customers on the stores products. Interacting with different customers with different mindsets. Different ways to help them. Management was excellent with great team. Hardest Part of the job was doing too many things at the same time without any assistance. The most enjoyable part was the work culture.
Communication skills and problem solving skills, friendly staff , supportive management but unable to provide staff for the workload at some stages. Sociable with the customers is the very interesting part of the job.
Need more staff
Typical day here is making coffees, baking pies, restocking fridges, paperwork, banking, orders, emailing, filling smokes and serving customers. I learned a lot about money and making coffees. Management was difficult since everyone didn't work to the rules but we got the job done. Co-workers were great, even though i was their manager we still got along and they understood what i was expecting from them. The hardest part of the job was leaving the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping my customers, making them coffee, and serving, also knowing exactly what they were their to buy.
good hours, great team environment and great customers
not good pay for the level i was at
