    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good (insurance, 401K match, PTO, etc.) There are some really great people.

    Cons

    "Good ole boy" culture reduces ability for upward movement and growth. (Very political) Employees are held to a different standard than the managers. Supervisor expectations change frequently and not communicated to employees. Non-Refining operations staff considered easily replaceable. Very little value placed on professional improvement. Poor interdepartmental communication.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are way better than what you deserve for the minimal amount of work you do. The company treats its employees extremely well.

    The promotions are buddy system based

    Pros

    In house training with opportunity for specialized off site courses in time. Support for continued academic education. Plenty of available overtime. Friendly coworkers who like to cook and eat. Strict but genuine HR to enforce a respectful work environment. A lot of new online courses to help with personal and professional growth. Outstanding benefits geared to help live a healthy lifestyle with monetary incentives for everyday activities such as intramural sports, weekend races, and buying healthy groceries. On site nurse.

    Cons

    Seniority based progression can lead to complacency and resentment. Under-staffing issues lead to feeling overworked. Health concerns with biweekly alternating shifts.

    Former Intern, more than 1 year

    Would work there again if I could

    Pros

    It's a small refinery (compared to the ones you hear about on the news) and you get to know your coworkers from all areas of the plant. I worked there through the large plant expansion start up and expectations/stress levels were high but everyone worked together to come up with a solution and a plan to get to the goal. There's a reason jobs don't become available very often!

    Cons

    There wasn't too many cons. If there was ever a problem they were handled professionally and timely. I don't have much negative to say!
