    I have been working at Ergon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy work. 3 weeks of vacation after only 5 years.

    Cons

    Very political. Medical benefits aren't great. Men are valued more than women. No room to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't talk about religion or politics at work. It's not good for business.

    I have been working at Ergon

    Pros

    good pay and fringe benefits

    Cons

    20% of the people do 90% of the work

    Advice to Management

    more hands-on, in the trenches work and oversight would yield ideas of what can be cut out to enhance Ergon's bottom line

    I have been working at Ergon

    Pros

    -If you like the small refinery environment, the Vicksburg plant is the place to work. Only like 50 people work in the office so you know all of the engineers, managers, environmental, and support staff. -Its a niche refinery, so I don't see it going anywhere anytime soon.

    Cons

    -Not a lot of room for growth at the Vicksburg location. They're not offering full times to their Co-Ops as they finish with their third terms- not a good sign. Most companies always give jobs to their Co-Ops.

    Advice to Management

    none that I can think of.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Ergon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent hourly wage for a truck driver. This company makes almost unbelievable profits.

    Cons

    Working over the regulated hours of service, shift work, everyone makes the same wages no matter how many loads you pull and how few they do, medical benefits are shabby at best and cost a fortune, management playing favorites (the drivers that do less are the favorites, buddy's outside of work, you know how it goes) it causes alot of friction between drivers, knowing the people in the office down the street make... more than you and have a sweet 40 hour work week and easy, relaxing days with no weekend work and no shift work. High turn over rate even for what you make hourly, that should tell you something. You drive tractor trailers and tri-axles places even 4 wheel drive trucks can't go. Nerves of hardened steel are needed.

    Advice to Management

    Drivers should be some of the best paid and best treated, they bring in the products that literally make the company.

    "Okay Place to Work"

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Ergon full-time

    Pros

    Good pay. Very laid back about work schedule.

    Cons

    Very inconsistent management. Too many chiefs and not enough indians. Managers have their "chosen ones" and if you aren't one, then don't expect to be given other opportunities within the company.

    I have been working at Ergon full-time

    Pros

    People are top notch. Great exposure and leadership roles for young engineers willing to take initiative.

    Cons

    Little to none. Have to be able to adapt quickly as an engineer but excellent management and colleagues make change easy to handle.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest into personnel growth and the business as you are doing. Excellent upper management.
