    I have been working at RKA Petroleum full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people who work there are nice and they seem to know what they are doing.

    Cons

    Management will cut off their nose to spite their face. This is an "family owned" company, which should mean treat customers and employees like family. But what it means is, I own the company and I do whatever I want. I can work less hours than everyone and demand more from you. I can hurt customer relationships because I will not take responsibility for anything.
    I have never worked for anyone with an owner who treats people with such disrespect. There is a reason that the average life on an employee at this organization is less than 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Sell your company or hire a manager who knows how to run it. With the history and strength of the operation, it is a shame that it continues to shrink in operations. You cant cut the employee benefits enough to keep the cash flow the same. Grow or die. It looks like the ownership is ok with death.

    I worked at RKA Petroleum full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people with a nice appealing environment. It was a good place to work when the market was down and I needed a job.

    Cons

    The upper level management is dreadful. They are not good business people and would not be able to work for a large company that would hold them accountable.

    Advice to Management

    Do not trip over dollars to pick up pennies.

    Pros

    There isn't a "pro" I can list here.

    Cons

    Run, don't walk, away from this company. Nothing good ever comes from working here. Turnover is high, pay is well below the average, and they don't care about their employees.

    Pros

    Good place to work if you are desperate, or new to the work force. Co-workers are the only good thing about this place, as we all support each other. You can listen to music at work.

    Cons

    Too many to list! They take away benefits regularly, pay is comparatively low for a tremendous work load.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Be more personable.
