Disapproves of CEO

Pros

very autonomous, expect little to no supervision or contact with your management unless something goes wrong. This is good because you can run your store as you see fit, within corporate guidelines of course.

Cons

no feedback, poor compensation, no communication, lack of work/life balance. Because of the lack of communication and supervision, you don't really get noticed if you are doing a good job and have little growth opportunities.

Advice to Management

Levels of management are too far apart, store managers rarely have contact with district managers, and next to never with operations managers. Upper management does not have a realistic view of operations on a day to day basis.

    Pros

    Western is only a good place to work if you have no other options and need to have an income to pay the bills

    Cons

    Management has no respect for the people actually working and running the refinery. Yorktown was a great place to work, but Western has destroyed it.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that the employees are your greatest asset and treat them as so.

    I have been working at Western Refining full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with great people and in a great environment. Job can be demanding at times but it feels like everyone is working towards the same goal of strengthening the company and making it better. Still has somewhat of a small company feel to it.

    Cons

    A little behind the industry in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the progress and the culture moving in the same direction.
