    Former Employee - (Operations Maintenance Terminal Marine Warehouse ) in Christiansted, VI

    I worked at HOVENSA as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Many opportunities for career advancement.
    - World-wide recognition and respect of experiences and skills.
    - Job Security (unique, among US-connected cos, as of this writing)
    - Community involvement and support.
    - Location.

    Cons

    - Volatile industry. Location may become extinct as a consequence.
    - Difficult to transition/diversify, quickly, to emerging technologies.
    - Location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Reopen plant. Diversify business focus. Community reps are eager to assist with any re-investment, transition, re-focus, diversification plans. Is it 'too late' ? Sigghhh.
