MICROMANAGING!!!!! They go overboard nitpicking stuff and some safety procedures actually make the job seem ridiculous. If you can handle that then it's a good fit for you.

No Life Balance

They will tell you that they are okay with the life balance but if something comes up and you need to leave they make you feel bad about it and pressure you to stay and try and find someone else to keep your sick child or so on. Other than that they are good to work for if you don't have to worry about family.

Stressful and demanding, but great opportunities for learning and advancement

Upper management is often promoted based on ability to drive all the productivity out of individuals as possible. Organization runs lean, and doesn't often cut Valero employees, but it leads to a lot of stress and work load creep.

Too busy to enjoy it, sir!

The company runs short of staff in each department. Each person is covering the workload of two or three others—military-style rankings with ego-driven dynamics select management. Frequently have to defer up to get an answer on something that you are qualified to make the call.

Plusy

Excellent compensation, survival comradery strong with peers.

Minusy

Overworked, Rank and file system that frequently manages up to hide the fact that everyone is about to crack.

Great benefits but company needs to focus more on retaining good talents

This company is not for employees who work hard. They don’t care about you if you strive on achieving the management’s goals. They don’t promote within and would rather hire a new talent. Therefore, a lot of great talents are leaving the company because they don’t feel valued and they think that they are just being taken advantage of. There is a great opportunity for this company. Lots to learn but if you’re not being valued, what’s the point of staying if you’re not happy?

Stressful and not fun to work there

I was treated disrespectfully and I was left alone upfront behind the counter every day and it was not a good or fun place to work. They are rude and disrespectful

The HR department leaves a lot to be desired. Their management team needs to be cleaned out from the top down.

Great company to work for my first 10 years; the next 10, not so much. The HR team sent out a survey to everyone in their branch, which consisted of HR and other departments, and the majority of the complaints came from those in the HR department. Hilarious.

Plusy

Great bonuses and benefits package.

Minusy

Terrible HR team and a bad habit of promoting those that are not worthy of the position, based on nepotism and the like.

Standard low-quality slave wage job.

They make it clear you're just a grunt to provide further passive income for the people who make the most money out of this company. They don't care much about making your job accessible, and for $12 an hour, which is CT rates (I guarantee it's lower in the mid-west) so you end up having to compensate for a lot of their errors and lack of refinement of their selling procedures.

Commonplace Job

Decently fine job. Middle of the road position. Average culture and management. Typical shifts and scheduling. Standard colleagues, clients and personnel.

Every day was a challenge to critical thinking

Valero offered a competitive salary & benefits, and safe work environment. Ongoing CBT to keep their employees up to date on their job requirements and safety. I felt safer in the refinery on the job than I did traveling to and from the refinery.

Good company to work for if compensation is your only goal.

Valero pays very well. Lots of mandatory overtime. Schedule is absolutely terrible. Safety leaves a lot to be desired. This is only a good place to work if your only goal is money.

Plusy

Pay, Assistant operators make $45, operators make $48+, safety bonuses, annual bonus, Health insurance is great, but you pay $300 plus per pay period, basic operator training program

Minusy

A lot more than indeed will let me post, safety is a joke at this refinery, complete toxic environment between operators and management, hf acid releases are common, ops director is hated by all

Good money

Great compensation and benefits come at a cost. Cost of personal life. Some are willing to male the trade some are not. Structured job advancement is great.

The staff was very easy to work for.

Minusy

Like I said before, it was the homeless that were the problem

12-hour rotating shifts, often missed family events.

Treated operators very well, rotating hours are tough

Average Company to work for

The benefits at Valero are good. A percentage is paid by Valero; which is a big plus. As for the pay/salary, it's not the greatest and they really try to lowball on Vacation time. If you had 4 weeks at your precious job, they will give you 2 or 3 weeks. This is crazy considering you will have the tenure to get the 4 weeks. Also, Valero DOES NOT believe in employees working from home. They highly discourage it; they don't even provide laptops to employees, It's all desktop company-wide. They also have a policy where they track your sick/family time; go over 40 hrs you will be called into HR. Which is crazy!

Plusy

Benefits

Minusy

no remote working from home when needed, tracking your sick/family time. Over worked for low salary.

A Great Company to work for.

Expect to work more than stated hours.Most Supervisors are helpful during workday activities giving insight and assistance when needed. Pay is above average along with the perks. Site Management is open and honest. Massive amounts of book, computer and OTJ training.Safety is always #1 over production. OSHA STAR site.

Plusy

Frequent Company Lunches Catered

Minusy

Seems to be a disconnect between corporate HR and local sites
