    I have been working at CITGO Refining full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary and some benefits( 401k matching is very good, slash vacation which adds another 80hrs of vacation.

    Challenge and responsibility of controlling complex units safely and efficiently

    Cons

    Schedule will take a toll on your body overall health and personal relationships.

    Exposure however slight to dangerous/deadly chemicals

    Advice to Management

    Think the way that raises and bonuses are calculated kind of pits console supervisors against one another.

    You don't have to do a great job, you just have to be perceived as outdoing your co-workers.

    This dynamic encourages some undermining behavior and/or working crazy hours.

    Pros

    Amazing culture, very much a CITGO family and not just a company that treats its employees as numbers.

    Cons

    The amount of guidance from Venezuela is immensely detrimental and not always in the best interest of the refinery.

    Pros

    the pay is great, there is plenty of overtime usually except as of late. Great people to work with as an hourly.

    If you aren't in the inner circle, poor chance for opportunity, benefits suck!

    Give employees a fair chance. Stop only promoting friends and family.

    I worked at CITGO Refining full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people there are friendly and welcoming. They promote a work life balance and always made me feel like part of the family.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any. It is a refinery so of course there are many hazards, but they take the measures to ensure safety.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on your path. Your employees, myself included were all very happy with the way we were treated.
