Company Culture

Not good management. No training allowed. Those who trained me were reprimanded. Ready to take test and manager said, "this week" then went on vacation for 2 weeks. Was never given test, fired for "not learning the process".

Support from management

No training allowed. Those who gave me information were reprimanded. Had 90 day probation, fired after 68 days for "not learning the process."

Teamwork

If we needed assistance, other employees helped us.

Freedom to work independently

I worked the night shift. No work to do, I could find something to do...not much oversight.

Internal Communication

We had radios, but communication was really poor.

Gender Equality

If you are a Christian, expect to be mocked and laughed at.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Many of the employees are older

Career Development

Nope

Overall compensation for your work

17.50 an hour, and Aetna for insurance. Not bad.

Office / Work Environment

Outside in all kinds of weather. Dirty, reek of oil all the time.

Environmental Friendliness

Old school. Shift lead watched pornographic movies on his laptop at work and listened to cussing music at work over the speakers.

Work-Life Balance

Four 12s, Three off, Three twelves, Four off....

Company Image

They are unknown and are not publicly invested. Family owned.

Job Security

Nope.

Handicapped Accessibility

No disabled. They wouldn't be hired.

Workplace Safety

No. They have you climb up ladders on top of tank cars, and climb up on top of trucks without railings to take samples...so it's carrying a long sampling tube, 5 gallon bucket, and rags.

Challenging Work

There's a point where "challenging" becomes impossible.

Inclusive / Diverse

A lot of old school. Mix of races...just old school mentality about right, wrong, etc.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Teach new employees about the operation of the tower. Fire the manager.

What I like about the company

I self-taught myself new skills, and learned some things that I didn't know before.

What I dislike about the company

The lack of instruction, patience from the manager. and the shift lead watched x-rated movies and listened to x-rated music during the shift, on speakers that put forth the sound into the whole control room. The manager terminated me before 90 days and said I didn't know anything and it was not true.
