    Pros

    Best paying job in the area, proud feeling of providing fuel for the territory and striving to be and maintain a world class refinery

    Cons

    The ever present divide between management and the hourly unionized employees, the inequality in pay and abundance of benefits that management have given themselves that was never extended to the other hard working and longtime employees

    Advice to Management

    When the divide is that great and unequal in benefits and pay no words can describe the damage!
    It absolutely Kills any kind of motivation to do a better job and to work harder!
    You see folks come and reap the benefits that you and your 20-30+ years of hard work has created and profited the company, thru lean times sacrifices have been made to keep the business afloat and for what ??...to see folks who don't care about the company walk off with tons of cash.


  2. "Challenging, rewarding and never boring"

    Pros

    Hovensa is an awesome facility consisting of multiple facilities in one... power plant, refinery, marine, terminal, etc... The workforce is diverse consisting of many cultures with great people. Also has really great benefits.

    Cons

    Hovensa is a very big organization that operates with a "small business" mentality. Unfortunately, because of our isolated location, the company was not able to remain competitive and profitable.

    Advice to Management

    So many initiatives have been started over and over only to be dropped as the person who started it left the organization. Also, in such a small community, realize that there are no secrets and therefore no reason to operate so "confidentially."
