      Pros

      Pay is good, hours are okay. Very traditional or old school mentality on work hours and working from home.

      Cons

      Having to send a list of things your going to work on from home for one day a week to your supervisor consumes more time. Then check in every 2 hours!? What’s the point. Management does not trust employees enough and wants too micro manage everything. Oh we’re the best refiner cause we’re the biggest. Blah blah. Don’t enjoy the work anymore. Too much paperwork to be efficient at your jobs. Not sure anyone I work with enjoys going to work anymore either.

      Pros

      The pay good compared to most other industries, but not better than most other refineries.

      Cons

      The nepotism in the company is hard to believe. Most people who get promoted are related to somebody higher up in the company. The company has metrics to hire minorities and discriminates against white males continuously. Marathon people are very arrogant and think Marathon is the best at everything. They cannot provide any type of progression path for employees who aren't in the "inner circle of nepotism". They recently had a layoff while concurrently hiring new relatives of employees onsite.

      very good pay but untrustworthy leadership

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      good pay and benefits are good.

      Cons

      forced overtime, Job security (unless in the union), managers talking about employees behind their back. Maintenance department managers show favoritism to employees that truly do not deserve the promotions that were received. I was told for myself when Marathon repurchased the st Paul park refinery by the HR professionals from corporate that I would qualify for the retirement health benefits at the time they purchased the refinery. 2 years later I was laid off due to covid and corporate restructuring. the severance package was good but not I hit the lottery. but 3 weeks before I was supposed to start my retirement health plan I receive a letter stating what I needed to do to enroll in the program. the next week I receive another letter saying that I do not qualify for the retirement health care program????? i called HR and was basically told to bad. I called and tried to explain what I was told at the transition and that I had 25+ years with the company. My advice is if you ever apply for a job there make sure it's part of the union, its is the only way you'll have any job security and you will also get raises.
