I worked at Atlas Oil full-time

Pros

Clean work environment, good people for the most part

Cons

Cut corners in every department, but spend $100K on remodels and new furniture. The "stop" no "go", wait "stop", no change everything and "go" culture gets old and exhausting very quickly. They can't seem to pick a lane. When owner puts pressure on leadership to perform, look out because we are all going to pay the price for them taking 6 vacations a year or leaving early 4 days a week. Trust is non -existent. No matter what, there is no where to go including your team leader to discuss any issues, especially if it's about your team leader. They can do no wrong. Once you open this can of worms, you're pretty much marked for a walk out the door at some point. The rest of the reviews are accurate about the "yes sir, no sir" atmosphere and this carries through every department of the company. Most of us walk on eggshells every day. Never know what's going to set a team leader off or Sam. Short skirts and low cut tops get all the attention. The salary differences between new hires and those that have been there several years is unreal. They will pay them anything to get them in the door. Where is the "so called" Leveling out of salaries?? There are double standards all over the place. There are salaried workers working 60-70 hours a week and then salaried workers working 40 hours a week. Most employees are good people but like in prior reviews, they are right. Many of them will blatantly lie or deceive to throw you under the bus. Advice is to keep every email and piece of correspondence because you're going to need it to get your butt out of trouble at some point. It's very political and everything is for show. Don't ever complain about anything because that's a sign of weakness for your team and you have to look good in front of Sam.

Advice to Management

Take the PI exams seriously. Understand why the employee is unhappy. You might be surprised how much they enjoy their work but not how they are treated. Remember that we all put our pants on in the morning just the same as you. Come back down to our level and start listening and truly understanding the processes and systems. They are supposed to be role models, yet most don't even understand what it is their team members really do day to day.

    I have been working at Atlas Oil full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free pop. popcorn, and nice dinners here and there. 401k match. Paycheck always cashed. The owner peeked in every now and then to say hi. He is a generous person. He also supports the troops with his pocketbook.

    Cons

    Crappy raises, 30 cents per hour a year dont do much, to many Managers. Performance Review program doesnt make sense. I was on the fleet maintenance side the regional manager of that had too many responsiblities to be able to control everything he needed to, He worked 7 days a week 15+ hours a day. Everything was bought the cheapest they could find, very inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    Get a guy with a Mechanic/Shop backround to run your Corporate Fleet Program. You shouldn't have inexperienced pencil pushers making decisions about something they know nothing about.

    I worked at Atlas Oil full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free soda machine, popcorn in the morning, owner spends money at events. Pay is not too bad, clean work areas. Lunch program is good. Pretty much the same thing you would expect in other corporate settings.

    Cons

    Where do you begin? If all of the pros above are a reason to work somewhere than good luck. This is a very inefficient organization where the structure makes no sense. The company is almost totally Excel driven and the other systems they use are inefficient. You will be worked and then worked some more. If you enjoy a work/life balance and time with your family then do not come here. It is an organization that promotes working hard instead of working smart. Little innovation and no real foresight. You are constantly trying to solve problems which could have been avoided with better systems. My advice is to pass on this place and go somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, they are set in their ways and will never change.
