    Current Employee - Lease Operator in Rock Springs, WY

    I have been working at Yates Petroleum full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Family time, company vehicle, increasing vacation time, personal time, sick time, ok benefits.

    Cons

    Upper management is terrible, kiss asses, lazy people need to apply, treat contractors poorly try to low ball everyone that walks in the door, backstabbing, melo dramatics would love this place

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit before you get the ax after the buyout, they teach you how not to treat people and how not to do business.

    I worked at Yates Petroleum full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Well paid, good benefits, good company vehicle policy, good bonuses, lower level employees great to work with.

    Cons

    Unless you have been there 15-20 years, and are part of their "club", the people that all started years ago in Artesia, you are nothing. I brought with me a ton of down hole completion, drilling and workover experience. I had an issue with a 3rd party/ contract production foreman and he goes to the produciton superintendant (who is a complete idiot), the next thing I know I get end run and terminated because I supposedly violate some company gratuity policy. I caused a rift, that contractor was there 13 years to my 2, and since they are all buddies, they got me ousted. The best part is the relationship this company has with vendors. Tell them they will stop using them if they dont get rid of certain people. I saw people taking bids, tell their contractor of choice what the lowest bid was so they could beat it. I hope once the sale of YPC is complete they go in and clean house!

    I have been working at Yates Petroleum full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    good image on the outside, paycheck is given on expected date, all the people with values & integrity have left.

    Cons

    Full of backstabbing people. Unprofessional dress, conduct, & treatment of coworkers. I was amazed at this and it was at all levels of workmanship within the departments. Do not fall for some of the "safe" HR protections that would be in place at a true corporate environment. ( ie: open door policy, discrimination, etc)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the slander and spying on your own people. The environment you are creating/allowing is very discouraging to people. Watching the parking lot.... ok that is understandable, but watching & recording your own people just isnt right. (ie: HR door, lounge/break areas, hallways)

    I worked at Yates Petroleum

    Pros

    The pay is actually on time and they do give you early release on the Fridays when local football is in season.

    Cons

    Lies,Corruption, Backstabbing, Malicious, Deceptive, No Moral Integrity or Consciousness, Petty Gossip, Slandering, and pretty much every known humankind of evilness is encouraged. Don't fall for the "open door policy" because the person/s you have issues with are friends with Upper Management & HR

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management are the ones responsible for creating this environment. The owners sadly either do not care or choose to remain ignorant of what is really going on.
