REG has a set schedule. It is extremely friendly working environment.
Difficult to continue education with scheduling.

Some work flexibility with 3 days in the office per week
Compensation is light and under market for the industry Office is in a weird location, in a warehouse / industrial park on the outskirts of town

Meaningful work 9/80 schedule Good benefits Nice people
Seems people have already been picked for development and effort / work product has no impact Low pay, expect new grad to make more than you and your legacy cvx to be two to three times more. Inequality across teams in same department / double standard

Meaningful work High impact Flexibility
Poor leadership Diversity and inclusion not prioritized Frat-like mentality within operations
- 4.0Oct 24, 2022Maintenance TechnicianCurrent Employee, less than 1 yearSeneca, IL
Smaller plant so it's a good place to start. Mostly local people working here, so the community feel is good
Permitting and safety are questionable in certain situations, possible upper management issue

Want to do other people's work? Great! Plethora of opportunities for you to complete your managers tasks! (for free!) GREAT RESUME BUILDER!! Energetic hiring managers who thrive for a consistent process Tools to succeed such as ATS, Recruitment tools (LinkedIn Seat + other sourcing avenues) Company events Ability to work with all levels of Hiring Managers Jerry Springer like drama will keep you on your toes constantly!! You are living in a real life drama.
Micromanagement. 8-5pm regardless if you are salaried. Despite evening recruitment events, there was zero flexibility reciprocated. If you reported at 8:03am , 8:10am you are late. Want to leave the office at 4pm for an appointment? Submit PTO Sick? Too bad. Are you dying? Be harassed by HR Staff on what you where to work despite it complying with company dress code High turnover in HR due to toxic culture Want to work from home, even 1 day a week or when you are sick? TOO BAD! The best work is done in the office. Wonderful interview experience only to learn you were DUPED! You joined a horrible company.1
