  1. "Engineer"

    I worked at Murphy Oil full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Responsibility was pushed down and you were able to see the impact of your decisions on the company's bottom line. The people, in general, were great to work with. A lot was expected of their employees, but there was verbal and financial rewards with each success. I never saw anyone fired or demoted for making a mistake, unless it was repetitive.

    Cons

    None that are out of the ordinary for any company of this size in the oil and gas industry.

    Great pay, get to know everyone in the city, learn about tobacco, and help meet customer desires. It's easy enough to work your way higher in the company.

    25 hours a week means I need a second job.

    Advice to Management

    Need to check on your Managers a little closer. Some of them get away with a lot of crap. Also when you put out Holiday Calendar we are told that Cashiers get Holiday Pay for Christmas and that is not true.
