Approves of CEO

Pros

people are good , trying to change, outlook for next few years excellent, with many opportunities for growth . Successfully raised the safety standards across company , with dramatically strong commitment .

Cons

pay is lower than industry standards, morale is low and turnover high

Advice to Management

raise the basic pay across the board or high turnover will continue. Cannot continue paying so low or that is all you will get from employees- low effort.

    I worked at Watco Companies full-time

    Pros

    The pay is good if you work contracted in one of the refineries. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Heard the pay was lacking outside refinery positions with Watco. Lots of talk - little to no action. Cover yourself, watch your 6.

    Advice to Management

    Try to pay attention to the "little guy" in more ways than just lip service. You might not think it is noticeable, but it is. Its belittling and demeaning. If you don't actually care, then say so - at least we can respect you for being honest. More e-mails, more tips-of-the-day, and more safety cards to carry does not equal being a decent human being with meaningful human interaction.

    I worked at Watco Companies full-time

    Pros

    I was favorable for this company till reading other reviews that were different from my own but found out I was terminated for an unfit reason.

    Cons

    They will tell you that you have weekends off, go to ATL on your own time for a day and they hold it against you and use it to fire you. While others take the company van to the strip club with no reprimand. Great company and managers there! There are no values at a company that fires you for going to the aquarium and the botanical garden but keeps people that take company property, after hours, to the strip club.

    Advice to Management

    Hypocrisy might be a big word for you to understand, you might misinterpret it like you did with me and my seriousness about wanting this job.
