Pros

Hess lets you take on advanced projects and allows a good degree of independence. The organization is very flat which allows for interaction with very senior managers in the company.

Cons

The company sees itself as very transparent in its management decision making process, which it is not. Dissent is at best tolerated and you would be advised to keep your head down if you're not satisfied.

Advice to Management

The leadership needs to learn to listen to its employees criticisms. Sometimes, complaints are reasonable, but there is a strong culture in the company to try to silence any criticism.

    Create a stronger structure so that business needs are top priority and not just the people with enough political weight get what they want when they want it.

    Pros

    The insurance benefit starts on day one. Which is good because the stress and long hours keep you sick. Other than that there really are no pro's.

    Cons

    With staffing hour reductions the manager must plan to work at least 12 hours a day or more. Ther is no support from district managers unless you are on target to receive a company visit. Then you will work non stop to fix every thing and be allowed to spend money for supplies and materials to bring things up to standards. The customers even comment that someone important must be comming.

    Advice to Management

    Give support to store management. Give needed payroll hours so employees are not left in buildings alone. Stay focused on the important issues in retail and do not change directions each month. Bring back the HESS trucks and drivers. They symbolized the company's commitment to quality and reinforced its values.
