for the most part it has been good over all .work by myself and take care of my area easy enough.

Pipeline Operator (Current Employee)
San Antonio, TX

I have been working at Plains All American Pipeline full-time for more than 10 years

Proswork by myself and if I need help with a problem help is a phone call away.

Conspay is not up to industry standards. yearly pay raises are very small. you are expected to be on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week with 0 compensation . and if you do venture out one hour past your area and get a call out its not a fun explanation to give your supervisor.

managements weekend usually starts at noon on Friday and if you need help on a big problem good luck. and if you do get a hold of a supervisor there not to pleasant to speak to on the phone,

Advice to Senior Managementgive field personel a decent raise and compensation for being on call 24 -7. ease up on all the nepitism

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Nothing to write home about.

Driver (Current Employee)
Kilgore, TX

I have been working at Plains All American Pipeline

ProsBenefits are some of the best. Flexible schedule. Division and district managers are a drivers friend.

ConsSupervisor is non-existent, never hear from him till something goes wrong. Good O' Boy Circle, your either in or your out. This is important when it comes to keeping your $3K quarterly bonus. Discipline and training is not consistent.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet some new blood in lower management, current one is driving away good people.

Decent Company

Pipeline Operator (Current Employee)

I have been working at Plains All American Pipeline full-time

ProsFreedom, Flexibility, bonuses and great benefits.

ConsALWAYS shorthanded, CHEAP as all get out when it comes to getting proper equipment, 0% performance feedback and EXTREMELY OVERWORKED middle management making it next to impossible to get anything done which requires their help.

Advice to Senior ManagementHIRE some freaking help and quit running the field hands into the ground.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good bonuses and comp

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Plains All American Pipeline

Prosgood compensation, bonus plan is satisfactory. very intelligent senior management, aggressive acquisition strategy. The company is willing to take risks in order to increase profitability.

ConsPromotions are difficult to come by. Transfers within departments are possible but relatively rare. Lots of political issues to navigate in the Director level and above.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork to more actively grow employees, promote from within in order to keep the knowledge in house, instead of hiring from outside so often. Most departments seem to have too much management level, not enough employees. Departments are too lean so the workload is too heavy, yet the expectations keep increasing.
