    I have been working at Occidental Petroleum full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Monday through Thursday work week, ten hour shift with occasional overtime , three day weekends, three weeks vacation, great benefits

    Cons

    Not the biggest fan of call outs but it's extra money. Some plants have a rotation schedule, others are just first one to answer
