    Cleaning bath rooms sucked and it stunk and the pay was way to low for the work I had to do

    Pros

    Marathon Petroleum is very good at giving you interesting work assignments. People are willing to help and for the most part supportive. Pay is good and you have the potential for a yearly bonus.

    Cons

    Marathon pays their hourly people like the admin assistants very poorly. Marathon stresses integrity but they take advantage of their contractors. There are a lot of contractors from India. So much for that old slogan they had about an American company serving America. Marathon treats the engineers very well. Not so much the other disciplines.
