    Former Employee - Bulk Plant Operator in Riverton, WY
    Former Employee - Bulk Plant Operator in Riverton, WY

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

    Pros

    Work schedule is 15 days on and 6 days off. Able to take care of personal business and enjoy six consecutive days off in a row.

    Cons

    Safety Department stresses safety practices for workers but turn a blind eye when upper level management pushes to override safety during busy times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. Don't tell employees to deviate from standard operating procedures and then get mad at them when they do.

    I have been working at Sanjel full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company is growing so there are lots of opportunities for advancement. The pay is extremely good along with the benefits.

    Cons

    The safety department is reactive when injuries occur and often overreact to rare incidents. There is a lack of training and trying to get more training is difficult. Field engineers are often treated as nothing more then an extra field hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more training especially on the technical side. Have reviews on managers more often since there inability to work with their employees cause a lot of them to look for different work.

    I have been working at Sanjel

    Pros

    The company and people are great to work for and with. Good benefits

    Cons

    Not even close to the average pay for its mechanics. Most leave for way more pay and a better schedule. Takes on average 5 months for any pay increase to get approved and applied to your check.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay what the other companies are paying and the mechanics might stay here instead of going to the other companies in the area.

    Pros

    They offer very good insurance package.
    They offer good salary and bonuses.
    They offer good vacation day options.
    You have to travel each day, but can be based out of a nice Montana town.

    Cons

    You will work irratic work hours, so you miss a lot of family time in the morning and evenings.
    You are tired a lot due to pulling all night shifts.
    You work in adverse weather conditions.
    There is a disconnect between upper management and field crew realities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close the disconnect between corporate policies and field realities. You claim to have a family culture, but we have yet to feel that way.

    THIS IS YOUR WARNING

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Sanjel

    Pros

    Regardless of the crazy supervisor, you will learn a lot about the job. I really don't have anything else to say about it.

    Cons

    Corp puts people who are not qualified to be in charge of you. It's not if, but when you will be treated unfairly or degraded as a person. Miles city mt is more like purgatory. HR will not do anything that will help you do to the "good old boys". There had been multiple reports and nothing ever changed. Good luck in your choices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what is being told. Clean out the Maintenance department and put people in that will not destroy teams and works to build them. If you have not received any info, I would be asking the HR team why and where is it.

    I have been working at Sanjel full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and beefits. housing and food included in job package.

    Cons

    hostile work environment. people in supervisory positions that are not good leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've been a business owner all my life. i am amazed at how hostile the work environment is here. When i quit this job i plan on flying to Canada to speak with the owner to let him know what my experience has been working for Sanjel so improvements can be made. Don't feel comfortable bringing up any concerns to management because i really don't think they care and i believe that would be the end of my job. I originally attributed the situataion to "growing pains" but it has been years now and the situation has not chanaged. There is a lot of turnover and the company does not try to keep employees. There are no job reviews and they do not try to keep talent even though it must cost a lot of money to train a guy. It is very cliquey and management does not communicate well.
