    I have been working at CVR full-time

    Pros

    If you do your job, have half a brain, and keep your head down (don't rock the boat) this company will pay well (including bonus).

    Cons

    The company is top heavy and most of the management is riding this out until some unforeseen retirement date. There is also (justifiable) fear of layoffs due to age so knowledge is held. This leads to limited upward mobility for the worker bees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop soliciting so much reassurance from consultants and ask your employees. You might even save a few bucks.

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

    Pros

    Location has lots of restaurants and shopping. Target bonus paid out. LTIP cash settled over 3 year vesting period. Fun annual Holiday party. Free sodas and snacks.

    Cons

    A-candidates will soon find themselves unhappy at CVR. No freedom to make decisions, not even those pertaining to your team, department or function. Lack of leadership from executive management. C-level execs caused unnecessary chaos and demonstrated immature/petty behavior. Toxic environment. Witnessed potentially discriminatory decisions.

    Long hours including weekends and holidays. Regular overtime is expected. Healthcare benefits unreasonably expensive with terrible coverage. 401k match takes 3 years to vest.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better

    Pros

    Not overly worked. About 60 hrs a week. Pay is decent for area. Like all jobs always room for improvement but for now I'm satisfied.

    Cons

    The biggest complaint I have is it is hard to move up in this company. And hard to get trained to do other jobs like like strap tanks, dispatch, ECT. No matter how much you ask to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Train employees if they ask for more responsibility.

    I worked at CVR full-time

    Pros

    You get to do a lot of work in a short period of time. They pay out a good bonus when they have a good year.

    Cons

    You will work so much you won't be able to see straight sometimes. It's terrible. The upper management is terrible at planning things appropriately and making sure that departments are staffed adequately. Procrastination and poor planning make for terrible attitudes among all employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you plan things better and treat your employees right.

    Pros

    Lot of good drivers, great place to work if you're a driver.

    Cons

    Management is horrible, hr dept is horrible. Management is under qualified and hires "buddies" that are incompetent. Pay is way below industry standard. I worked as a trucking supervisor for 1 year at the paulsvalley location I had to use my personal vehicle for work. Management was too busy golfing to actually work. Way too much drama in the office. Work 24/7.

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent employees and leave your buddies out if it

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

    Pros

    The location is fantastic great shops and lunch spots, that's about it. There are still some employees that either truly care about the company or the employees they work with.

    Cons

    Benefits are absolutely awful. Bottom line is all that matters to the owners/execs, which is fine but don't expect employees to stay. HR is a nightmare and a revolving door, nothing ever gets done.

    Advice to Management

    You need something more than location to keep your employees.
