    They offer good benefits and the pay is great.

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

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere and great leadership always having the customers goals first.

    Cons

    Just the normal internal back talking and grapevine issues.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to current employees who are wanting to grow into a better career path internally.

    I worked at TIMEC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    LOTS of HOURS when work is available. Advancement is nearly assured for those whom are willing to travel for the job. Pay is EXCEPTIONAL for those willing to travel.
    This is the kind of job that is perfect for someone young with no family or relationship attachments, and looking to make some REALLY good Money in 1 to 2 years.

    Cons

    Work is not always available unless your willing to travel. Travel for the job I had was, 3 to 4 months at a new location or possibly another country. Then to a new one. In many cases, one might not get work near their home for a long time. This is the kind of job that is perfect for someone young with no family or relationship attachments, and looking to make some REALLY good Money in 1 to 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Some of your mechanics are and/or were looking for other areas in the Refinery Industry yet did not see any avenue to achieve them. Your assistance could be very helpful to them.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at TIMEC as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Paid for my house and funded my business working for TIMEC. Also got my crane license with all there help.

    Cons

    Staying on top of all training and safety policies and procedures can be a challenge but critical to ones surviving a shut down or upset in facility.

    Advice to Management

    Hire me back. Ready to go to work again thank you. Need to update training for refinery work again.

    Pros

    They were good about time off for family reasons, they also had an excellent safety plan for my field of operation.

    Cons

    Went to interview for a General Foreman position, they told me they wanted to have me be a regular scaffold erector and would evaluate me in a few weeks for the intended position. I found out later they told 2 other previous employees the exact same thing. Very poor pay and lack luster benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront about open positions and try to match the pay and benefits of union shops so as to attract better personel.
