Company Culture

One of a kind!!! I've Never worked for a company like this one...truly Unique

Support from management

Management is the biggest issue at Lucas Oil Products! It's a family owned business...meaning that positions are simply "created" for certain individuals. People are placed into management positions, even into Upper management positions; with absolutely NO experience, education, or basic management training!

Teamwork

At times, team work at Lucas Oil is Everything and people work well together for the most part. That is- If you can get someone to actually come help with whatever issue needs dealt with! The majority of the time, a Supervisor will be the one impeding production; by Standing at the end of the line, casually talking to team members, who aren't attentive to the line Lead or the issue at hand.

Freedom to work independently

Depends on the individual

Internal Communication

Communication is lost in translation! The shear amount of company provided cell phones is ridiculous! Having them, along with two-way radios, emails, daily production meetings, And postings around facility...does NOT make communicating any better!

Gender Equality

In No way, shape, or form is Lucas Oil a place that women can excell or advance within the company. Unless you marry into the family and have a position created specifically to accommodate you; equal opportunities do not exist at this company...No matter what!

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yes...but virtually anyone hired is connected in some way to someone already employed there. Hence why they're put in a position that's easier than most others.

Career Development

Personal development within the company primarily depends on your connection within the company and if that connection is pertinent and valued in ways that most of the regular employees are not.

Overall compensation for your work

Benefits were excellent! Pay could be better

Office / Work Environment

Absolutely Not! The level of carbon dioxide emissions from the forklifts was at an evacuation state Several times, but the employees weren't evacuated or even told!!! They just opened a door, in the winter months to reduce the levels and that was it.

Environmental Friendliness

Like Everything at Lucas Oil...just because it appears to be a certain way, most definitely does Not mean that's the way it actually is.

Work-Life Balance

Family is a BIG thing at Lucas because it's family owned...but things aren't always how they seem.

Company Image

I once was very proud to work there...but then again, I found that things aren't always how they appear to be!

Job Security

If you lose your job at Lucas Oil...your either a complete idiot OR you were targeted and eliminated.

Challenging Work

Work is challenging for those willing to put forth the extra effort. Although the more you do, the more they expect. At the end of the day, hard workers are expected and allowed to do whatever is necessary to get the job done. All the while, allowing lazy employees to stand around and watch!

Inclusive / Diverse

Absolutely NOT!!!

Suggestions for improvement

  • It doesn't matter because they could careless what anyone says

What I like about the company

Numerous things

What I dislike about the company

Scandalous, plays favorites, discriminatory, people placed in positions they're not qualified for, etc.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More structured middle management and less nepotism.

What I like about the company

There are many things to like/love about this company. If you are in the 'in' you can do no wrong. If you are on the 'outside' then its much tougher. If you are in the 'in', it is a great place to work.

What I dislike about the company

Nepotism rules the company. A few families have a stronghold and all work there. Spouses, siblings, in-laws, brothers and sisters. The first question when you work there is "Who do are you related to". Also, every single employee answers to 1, 2 or maybe 3 people in the entire company.
