undefinedA Great Place To Work!

Atlas isn’t just a great place to work. It is a great place to play, to learn and to grow. Our culture starts within each of us and works its way out through the many products, services and programs we are involved with both internally and externally. It starts with a genuine caring for each other, our customers and our community. People often remark that there is “something about Atlas’ people.” You can tell that we are part of the Atlas team by the way we carry ourselves, work with customers and develop our people. 

Atlas team members know what is expected of them and try to go above and beyond those expectations every day. We do it out of respect for ourselves, our colleagues and our customers and suppliers. Apparently, the atmosphere is contagious, since we have been growing substantially over the past several years, adding to our bench strength for the future! 

Atlas provides opportunities for its team members. Our core values inspire growth and development. We are an entrepreneur business and all team members are given the opportunity to learn and grow.

undefinedAtlas Cares

Atlas takes its corporate citizenship seriously. We believe in giving back to the communities that have supported our company and our growth over the past quarter century. Several years ago, we formed Atlas Cares, a team member sponsored program that makes a difference in the lives of others while directly giving back to the community. Through Atlas Cares, our team members, and sometimes even customers and suppliers, get involved in worthwhile activities and events. 

Atlas Cares is proud to support the following Charitable Organizations:

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Atlas Oil (Taylor, MI) in April 2015.


    Brief phone interview with HR then face to face with Department Management. Asked relevant questions for department being hired for. Shown around building - met with other employees. Seemed to be laid back type of office - was surprised at all the negative reviews here although did catch some smirks on employees as I was walking through.
