    I worked at Buckeye Partners full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great Pay - the pay was outstanding and the hours were 9-5. My direct manager even took me out to lunch a few times!

    Cons

    Senior Buckeye IT management shortened the signed 1 year contract to 30 days without explanation and ushered me out the door with escort when I asked why, all under the protection of the socialist "Right to Work" laws. As soon as it benefitted them financially to do so (oil prices dropped from $100+/br to <$88/br the day before). Once their income dropped precipitously, from Independent Texas Oil Producers defying this government to make oil prices drop with their entrepeneuship, Buskeye ended my position without notice, without compensation and without any professional explanation. Is this what we have become in this nation? Arrogant?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire PROFESSIONAL management that understand the golden rule of business : TREAT PEIOPLE THE WAY YOUW ANT TO BE TREATED. I understand they need to cut costs, but the WAY they did this, showed real arrogance and a lack of compassion. SHAME ON YOU.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits and vacation packages. Growing company in the oil industry. Has discounts for Ford personal vehicles for employees

    Cons

    Company has the most shady managers that will smile to your face and then make changes that will increase their bonus. Horrible work environment with the "you're walking on eggshells" attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Does it matter what a "grunt" of the company would say to you?

    I worked at Buckeye Partners full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Met some great people who where also overworked and under appreciated.

    Cons

    Management has very top down mentality. Not much collaboration with mid management. Everyone is really spread thin and overworked. No alternative work schedules and vacation packages are not competitive with the oil and gas market. Happy to move on but will miss some of the folks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your employees. Look at the attrition rate and realize change is needed.

    I worked at Buckeye Partners

    Pros

    Great salary, and benefits. You get a week off every month, due to the fact that you work a 12 hour day and overtime is built into your work weeks. In a month you work a 42 hr week, 42 hr week, 48 hr week, and a 36 hour week. You receive overtime for everything that you are called in for, even if you haven't met your 40 hrs for that week yet.

    Cons

    Basically a zero tolerance policy when it comes to any mistakes while running the pipeline, especially if your first mistake cost between 50-100 thousand dollars. No explanation, no interview, they basically just show you the door, game over thanks for playing.
