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

      Pros

      Good company with lots of potential to keep growing. Could be awesome with the right leadership.

      Cons

      Several of the executives are jerks but CEO is great. Long history of favoritism and good ol' boys club mentality. Promo and Hiring is not based on merit or competence, just selection of favorites and people who look just like the manager.

      Advice to Management

      Request employee feedback and take action - the same problems linger and never get addressed, strengthen your hiring and promo practices to remove favoritism and bias and look at competence and skills

      Pros

      Great job, great pay, good hours and days off.

      Cons

      You don't always get your time off because of lack of staffing. You can't read your paycheck to make sure you are being paid right. The benefits are mediocre for this industry. We should have better benefits for the amount of money we make for this company. They promote the worst people for the job, most middle management are clueless to the basics of refining.

      Advice to Management

      Get aggressive to get the best people to manage your units don't just accept the first guy to put an app in. It will pay off quickly when you have people who actually know what's going on. The same goes for your turnaround planners.

        I worked at HollyFrontier Corporation for less than a year

        Pros

        This company has a lot of room for growth for engineers. The overall company culture is one of the best I have ever experienced, everyone is so nice and friendly, and upper management truly cares about the individuals.

        Cons

        There seems to be some limited mobility in the company, and it can take a long time to work your way up.

        Advice to Management

        Keep course, and this company will see amazing things in the future.

        I worked at HollyFrontier Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

        Pros

        Pay and benefits were competitive.

        Cons

        After years of stability with a stable leadership team, upper management decided to make changes at the top of IT, and it has become a huge mess. Really good SAP resources are leaving in droves or have already left. IT Infrastructure is next. Was a great place to work for years, and now has become a toxic environment. And they are looking at heavy, heavy outsourcing arrangements of IT support, and that never turns out...

        I worked at HollyFrontier Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

        Pros

        If you like living in Kansas the pay is solid. If you don't care where you live, go find a good place to work elsewhere.

        Cons

        Management is fairly young and inexperienced which isn't necessarily bad. But many of these "guys" don't listen, unfortunately. Additionally, experience doesn't seem to count for anything in their eyes. And despite the youth it's a good ol boy system with only favorite son's getting the attention and moving up. Qualifications are largely ignored. Unless you can get plugged you won't do well, stay away.

        Advice to Management

        Don't have any, they're beyond help.
