    I have been working at CITGO full-time (more than 5 years)


    The 9/80 work schedule, health benefits/healthy living incentives, 401K match and pension you won't find many other places anymore, laid back work environment overall although not in every department. The people are overall friendly. People are active in their community and volunteering. Some consider it a 'CITGO family'.


    The lack of upward mobility for even 'high' achieving employeess is really discouraging causing good employees to eventually leave in order to advance their career. Negotiate what you want salary wise when you come on board because you will be stuck in the same pay band for a long time regardless of performance. Not the company to come work for if you are looking for high compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More internal promotions are needed. There are a lot of valuable employee talents that are being under appreciated and under utilitzed. It makes it very difficult for those who like the company to stay long term and have a career. Most who leave do so because of compensation, lack of promotion or bad managers.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at CITGO.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was structured, but allowed plenty of flexibility to ask questions and understand the environment. The panel consisted of members across many departments which I found nice. I met with the director 1-on-1 which was a good experience as well.
