Team was fantastic and the work culture is fast paced but relaxed at the same time. There isn't always a ton of development opportunities and the company is so big sometimes you have to wait for upper management to move out before you can move up.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Rio Rancho, NM – 19 April 2017
It was a fast paced job, lousy pay, your supervisor made or broke the job. I had many good bosses there and many lousy ones. lost of turn over and couldn't keep the bathrooms clean we were always so so so busy.,

The work itself is straight-forward and easy to learn. At times there may be little downtime to use for cleaning and stocking, yet it is still expected to be completed. There is minuscule communication from management which can be frustrating. Advancement is easy to achieve but is not very rewarding as the increased tasks are further complicated to complete within a shift.
Contractor (Former Employee) – Bartlesville, OK – 22 March 2017
I learned more customer service skills. Communication was huge for this job at times. The management was great to work for, they made coming to work a lot of fun, but also made sure you did your job and learned more each day. There wasn't much of a hard part to this job other than if something got lost or misplaced. The most enjoyable part was definitely laughing and making the best of each day with my co-workers.
Process Operator (Current Employee) – Sweeny, TX – 9 March 2017
Work life is very demanding and challenging, I have tons of experience working with hydrocarbons. We have experienced a lot of turnover in management during the past 5 years or so. Management has changed the culture to where it is not a family type atmosphere no longer. I am challenged to overcome a wide variety of obstacles that we may see on several different occasions and sometimes that we do not see very often or may never see. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting to work with a very diverse work force and make a lot of very good friends over the years.
Compensation, benefits, and the satisfaction of a job well done.
It's hard to advance up and learn if you don't know the right people. You can work hard but not get noticed for the work you do. It's a great place to work if you're content with having little to no advancement.
Sales Clerk/Cashier (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – 1 February 2017
I would come in get a snack and a Gatorade, come around the counter and start to help ring people in. I had to clean the coffee station, sweep floors, clean the bathroom, and provide great customer service. The hardest thing about this job is when someone comes in with a ton of change an they haven't even counted it yet. It backs up the line then everyone else isn't happy!
Great place to work to see the refinery from working drawing to actual or physical oil and gas plant.
Senior Electrical Designer (Former Employee) – Wilmington, CA – 5 January 2017
It's fun to work with and challenges to know the dangers and hazards in the refinery. Work is not confined in the office but expose you to see the physical condition and infrastracture inside the plant.
