Reviews for Herring Gas Company, Inc. of Louisiana

Reviews - What employees say

2.06 Employees say
0.00 Applicants say

Company Culture

Terrible. It is a very oppressive environment and none of the workers are happy

Support from management

They set very unrealistic goals especially in the summer, however if there is a problem with equipment, they will make sure that everything is fixed ASAP

Teamwork

Teamwork is a very small part of the job because you are alone most of the time, but if you are in need of help, the manager is able to assist

Freedom to work independently

Independent work is all part of the job.

Internal Communication

Again, just impossible expectations

Gender Equality

As I have said before, from what I have observed, women are treated horribly

Attitude towards older colleagues

They don't typically hire really old people from what I've seen, however there was one employee I saw who was in his 70s

Career Development

You can only move up so far before you hit a brick wall

Overall compensation for your work

They only pay a fraction of what you're actually worth. There was one Saturday we all worked and never got paid.

Office / Work Environment

There are very hazardous and unsafe working conditions

Environmental Friendliness

I don't know. Probably not.

Work-Life Balance

There is absolutely no work-life balance. It is not a job where you can just work and go home. You are on-call 24/7. They don't even want women to take maternity leave rather they tell female employees that if they are going to have a baby, they need to give birth during the summertime.

Company Image

If I had known back then everything I know now, I would have never taken the job in the first place.

Job Security

Again, they fire anyone for any little thing.

Handicapped Accessibility

Facilities yes, however do to safety sensitive functions and DOT physical regulations, handicapped people generally are unfit to do that sort of work

Workplace Safety

There is training, but very unsanitary and unsafe working conditions are an everyday occurrence

Challenging Work

Its the hardest work there is just about and there are virtually no rewards. Just suspicion.

Inclusive / Diverse

About like anywhere else

Suggestions for improvement

  • Care more about your employees and pay better wages

What I like about the company

Absolutely nothing

What I dislike about the company

They care more about money than the well-being of their employees
