I worked at Murphy Oil

Pros

Good commission. It's guaranteed unless you REALLY screw up. Customers are great. Paid trips to Disney World for company meetings.

Cons

My District manager was horrible. When I wasn't being cussed at or criticized in front of other managers, my job was being threatened. The DM I had would fire whoever he felt like and make up lies on the termination so they wouldn't get their unemployment. And when you try to let HR know, they don't do anything about it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep a strong check on your DM's. Don't let them get away with murder, because you think it's too hard to replace a DM. When someone comes to you and tells you there's a problem, perhaps you should actually investigate it.

    decision is made rather quickly and easy to reach the senior management.

    Cons

    Well sequence and priority is changing rapidly.
    company has contracted too many consultants as their core work forces in drilling and completion operation who care less about training up the permanent employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    retain and reward the individual who perform well. should stay a notch above the industry average in the compensation and rewards.

    I worked at Murphy Oil

    Pros

    Salary and benefits were okay. Once a year the company had a store manager meeting in Orlando, FL and recognized accomplishments.

    Cons

    This company is living in the 70's. Employees are expendable. Turnover is very high. Turnover is part of the commission program but rarely discussed. The company goes through great lengths to retain customers but does not show its employees the same respect. The review process is horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to create an "Exit Interview" program and dive into their turnover issue. Understand what the word "respect" means.
