I appreciated having great co-workers, helpful employees and the Head Engineer I worked for was professional, he made himself available enough for me to interact with him when necessary. He reviewed the drawing updates in a timely manner for me to process them. When I think about the plants that I have worked at, B.P. rates at the top. I really appreciated working in a plant were my skills were a good a match and, there was no need for micro-managing.
At times we were provided some of the best barbecue in Texas or USA
Perhaps the cons were the long drive home after 20 hours
You can take your career as far or short as you want. The large corporate structure makes everything slower from technical to managerial decisions. Projects can take a very long time to progress.
Large coporate management style very slow to proceed with decisions
BP was a great place to work with excellent salary, benefits, and opportunity for advancement. good work culture and diversity awareness. BP treats their employees with dignity and respect.
Long work hours expected.

My typical day at work would be to do a proper and complete shift relief from the out going operator. Going over any incidents and possible problems that may come up. I would go and do my own personal walkthrough before my shift meeting, looking for issues that could come up. What i learned from the refinery and or chemical plant is to respect the process because it can be unforgiven and dangerous. Management plays a big role in production by that they call the shots so good communications skills with management is very important. Workplace culture is crucial in the field being that working with the dangers could cause a disaster, so safety is very day is the culture i believe in bringing to the job. The hardest part of the job would be to encourage co-workers and new hires is to never cut corners follow the work order as written, never attempt to do job you are not qualified to perform and ask question and ask for help, always least 2 people, never work alone! Safety is first. The enjoyable part is learning that all incidents can and will be different, know your process, know your equipment and what is its function .
Good Learning, Good Pay and benefits
You must respect the process!
Good place to work - great people. I've had the opportunity to work at a place that is known worldwide, and has facilities on all continents. It's provided an excellent opportunity for me to advance my knowledge in the areas of industrial emergency response and security. Would recommend it as a good place to work!
Lunches provided quarterlyi, ERT appreciation; shirts, jackets, tickets to events
5 day work week for salaried personnel
Great company to work for but was surprised when they put up refinery for sale. String of unfortunate incidents lead to its sale such as 2005 explosion and the Deep water Horizon oil spill
A typical day at work included checking all employees and equipment was up to par, maintaining maintenance on all machinery, and relieving all employees for their breaks, as well as filling in any position that didn't have an operator. I learned to be a team leader and perfected those skills. Management was very fair and offered equal opportunity employment. My co-workers, overall, were personable and working for the benefit of the company. The hardest part of the job was to fill in for other employees who called in and to maintain my responsibilities as well. Also, I found it challenging to work up to 90 hours a week. The most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction of knowing my responsibilities were completed on time, and that I benefited the company every day.
Quarterly raises, paid vacation, union, bonuses
Company wanted me to relocate overseas in the Middle East
BP was a wonderful and caring company to work for. Marathon on the other hand purchased BP in February 2012 and everything from then on changed. It turned in to a totally different company to work for. It was difficult to work under their working conditions. My co-workers are great guys to work with. Hardest part of the job is the heat around the process. Next would be the large manual valves/chain valves to operate. Most enjoyable is the people.
Free coffee and decent pay
Benefits aren't that good (medical, etc)
I have seen many changes incur at my facility since my employment began. I work for a site with many hardworking co-workers and being in capital projects bring a certain level of ever changing challenges that I enjoy tackling.
Poor Health CareOverall
When the refinery was owned by BP at least we knew that they cared about your safety and it wasn't just a slogan. They actually listened to employees concerns and the plant manager was a people person and would come to the units and talk with you. Not sit up in their office all day and look down on you. Management a little unorganized but they tried.
lots of work
I would be up high whole watching I have to be very neat and carefull and always paying attention . and have a good house keeping around my work area I would watch men go in and out of a whole to take breaks my co workers were good... the hardest part of my job was how to climb up 10 feets and go down every single time I had to get a job done... the most enjoyable part was to receive my good check.
