I have been working at Murphy Oil full-time

Pros

Oppurtunity to meet new people.

Cons

Terrible management. One company, but different departments are treated very differently. Job is very very stressful and not worth the pay! The hours are AWFUL. Not enough employees, seniority does not mean much, and there is constant unfair treatment. They tend to bring in inexperienced management to try to "implement" things, but this fails. There is a lack of communication and also they have their "picks and chooses". If you're not one of them, don't expect to be treated the same. People are quick to say, "yes I want to work for Murphy", but you will be surprised what's on the other side of those doors.

Advice to Management

Stop hiring inexperienced management. Put more time into choosing someone better fit for a job. We had a manager who knew absolutely nothing about her own department. Take the time to actually hear your employees. There is no sense in having HR meetings for change, only to have enployees rant, but you don't actually listen to a word they say. All I can say is BETTER MANAGEMENT. I can not stress that enough or your turn over will continue to get worse.
