    I worked at Chevron full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Pay and benefits
     - Safety culture (if mid and senior leaders buy into it and not just pay lip service to it)

    Cons

    - Inexperienced 'managers' who are unwilling to allow experienced professionals in lower pay grades try to help them be successful
    - Reductions in force due to poor planning and a lack of accountability for those that underperform (major capital project delays and overruns)

    Advice to Management

    - Trust experienced business professionals with a proven track record of delivering projects on time and within budget vs. engineers that are good at engineering

    Pros

    Fast pace job, work is not hard,deal with lots of customers and great Co workers. Great for high school and college student very flexible hours.

    Cons

    Hours aren't set, all day on your feet, dealing with some customers with attitudes, depending on area you deal with homeless people, crazy people, drug addicts and gang members wanting to steel

    Advice to Management

    I feel that the customer service representative should be paid more then what there are currently so. Especially Graveyard who has more responsibility then 1st and 2nd shift.

    Pros

    Decent wages and benefits.

    Cons

    Awful during a downturn in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Performance needs to be recognized, period. Forcing employees into the underperformance buckets just to keep the bell curve makes no sense after you’ve laid off the low performers.
