Manager (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – 18 March 2019
This company has a lot of potential to be great but the Executive Team is disjointed and not all the leaders are on the same page. CEO is great and culture is getting better. Support functions struggle; rampant favortism and good ol boy club practices in corporate. Your experience can vary depending on department and location. If hiring and promotion practices focused more on talent, and a few bad apples would leave, it would be an awesome place to be.
Instrument & Controls Technician Burrow Global (Former Employee) – Bountiful, UT – 10 December 2018
I only Worked at that site for 5 weeks as a contractor to help start up their crude oil unit that had burned down. Their in-house technicians were very helpful with any equipment or support they could provide.

HFC is a growing company that is expanding it's product line and global footprint. In it's veal to grow the IT systems is struggling to keep up with the demand. They have brought in new IT leadership hoping to attract new and younger employees. Overall the benefits are very good.

Designer/Drafter II (Current Employee) – West Bountiful, UT – 7 October 2018
I've been an employee in the Engineering group for 4 years and the first two were fantastic. These last couple of years I've had no development from my superiors, I've had to research to build my own skills. Nepotism is a major problem at this facility, if you know the right people you'll advance. They could be a great company if they had backbone and performed like a corporation.
Free Gym membership, Health Savings Account, Flexible Schedule
No supervision, Management very lacking, no advancement opportunities
Turnaround Clerk (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – 19 September 2018
I loved working for such a great company. It overall one of the best companies i have worked for. The people are very friendly and welcoming. Just be prepared to learn a lot about the units and everything going on in the field.
Haven’t been at HFC very long but long enough I wish I had never taken a job with them.
Engineer (Former Employee) – El Dorado – 16 September 2018
No work life balance. Little to no advancement opportunities unless you are one of the chosen. Management is week and frankly stupid in some instances. Management is by check lists at best. Rules are applied only at the convenience of management. Over the last few years a number of employees have simply disappeared without explanation. “Joe Blow is no longer with Hollyfrotier” is the party line and you are left to guess if it was for cause or whim. There are good people there and some are in management but are in effective at best. Safety is number one, after costs and schedule. If you are honest and hardworking and plan on that for advancement then look elsewhere. But if you are willing to put profits above all else, have no ethics and unencumbered with compassion for your fellow man then this could be the place for you.
Can’t think of any
You must sell your soul to Holly to get ahead and even then that may not be enough.
I wished I could say something positive about HollyFrontier Company but the only thing I can say is that the company does pay well. I worked 14 months trying to make the company successful using all years of experience and skills but I was treated like a outside and most of the management team players didn't want me there.
Good place to learn lifelong skills. Decent management
Lead Operator (Former Employee) – Woods Cross, Utah – 25 June 2018
I spent nine years at HF as a plant operator. It is a great place to work and the management was usually very supportive. The pay is excellent but plan on giving your soul to them. The expectations are high but they provide all the tools you need to achieve them. This is a company in constant transition so things change weekly but I feel that most everyone wants you to succeed. I really miss the place but had to move on.
Senior Electrical Designer (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – 24 June 2018
Excellent place to experience every type of industrial power and controls scenario imaginable. If you are driven by technical challenges, and experiencing different facets of industry Holly is a great place. The scale is large enough that it gives you a taste of everything.
A great place to work. Everyone and I mean everyone was willing to take time out of their day to help you or give information about a topic of interest. Work life balance was top notch and everyone seemed to be mindful of making the workplace a great place to work. As an intern, I was given meaningful work and real feedback for my outputs.
Operator (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – 6 October 2017
I am a former employee of 10 years. If you're a single, tail kissing, individual who is willing to work endless hours then this is the place for you. In Tulsa, overal the management is horrible and demands production no matter if the job is done safely or not. I personally witnessed a significant injury on equipment that had been written up several times. There are many good people located at the Tulsa refinery but the management is very very poor.
Higher Paying with Loaded Stress and Old School Management
Anonymous (Current Employee) – Anonymous – 2 August 2017
A high-stress job with very old school management that is more about looking good than doing a good job. Poor management styles with growth only if you can impress the right person. The culture is very poor and they do not care because they pay well so people stay.
