Great guys to work with but lacks decent management
Senior Process Technician (Current Employee) – Port Arthur, TX – September 17, 2015
The personnel in operations are a great bunch of guys to work with and if that is all you have to deal with, then it's an awesome place to work.
The problem is that it lacks any consistent management. Since the facility is the premiere facility for that division, it is used as a stepping stone for management. This means that managers rotate through on their way to other facilities and we never keep any manager for more than two or three years.
Thus, we always have a constant flow of new inexperienced engineers coming and going.
Preform housekeeping duties (Current Employee) – Sparks, Ga – September 10, 2015
The people I work with are fun and usually help out, however the problem is with some people who are in higher position. They tends to be able to get away with not doing what the supervisor tells them to do.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Monaca, PA – September 8, 2015
I HAD TO TO FOLLOW UP ON THE MOST CURRENT INFORMATION WHICH COMPLIES WITH SAFETY AND ISO STANDARDS. MONTHLY REVIEWS WERE ALWAYS DONE IN ORDER TO STAY UPDATED ON NEW SAFETY CHANGES AND REGULATIONS. ANNUAL REVIEWS SUCH AS CPR., AND FORK LIFT TRAINING EXERCISES ARE ROUTINELY DONE TO MEET OSHA. REQUIREMENTS. READING THE DIFFERENT PROCEDURES IS A PART OF THE REGULAR PRACTICE TO INSURE THAT THE DUTIES OF THE JOB ARE DONE EFFICIENTLY AND SAFELY.
Mechanical Operator (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – August 23, 2015
I am a mechanical operator. 1st off, be prepared to stand for 12 hours minimum a Day. Breaks are SUPER short, 2 15 minute breaks and 1 30minute lunch. Now, Basf WILL pay Good money based on your title. They start at 13 as a temp(which every one starts as). The supervisors have their favorites that they allow to do things that most would get a write up for. They have a zero tolerance for being unsafe. Their is no motivation nor moving up in the company unless you kiss tale. Even if you do your job great and get told so on a weekly basis for years. No one wants to train you, but your expected to know the job within 2weeks, regardless of position.
The pay is decent and unlimited overtime.
Breaks and lunches are to short for 12 hour shifts, training sucks.
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Wyandotte, MI – August 7, 2015
Company is very focused on safety. A typical day if filled with data mining, strategic planning and business partnering. The hardest part of the job is giving strategic advice and the business is slow to move. The most enjoyable part of my job is interacting with diverse individuals and learning new business strategies each day.
Very nice work place and pratice safety mandatorily
