Decent job, if you keep your opinions to yourself.
Crude Oil Hauler (Former Employee) –  OklahomaOctober 3, 2015
Hours are decent for oilfield trucking. Insurance is great. Pay is ok. It's probably on the lower end of most commission based pay for crude hauling, but in the right location you can make $65+ a year. If you keep your mouth shut, it's hard to get fired. Many coworkers in my area had issues with spills, tickets, and longs/shorts on their loads and are still employed there.

Mostly new equipment... but one thing. AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS IN OILFIELD TRUCKS?! What a waste. You can get stuck looking at a mud puddle.

Your direct supervisors are all pretty good people, but they are totally gutless when it comes to dealing with upper management. They are way to quick to implement useless policies. Most of them have hauled long enough to even admit that corporate is wasting time/money with these new policies, but too feeble to recommend changes in them.

Because of the supervisors fear of corporate, they will accidentally lie to you from time to time. They'll agree with something, then they'll change their minds when they get scolded from the big dogs.

They do play favorites big time, and not always good hands that they pick. One worthless hand will get away with murder, while the rest of us get "wrote up" for doing the same thing. I.e. couple barrels on the ground is fine for one guy, but the rest of the us better pray we don't get a traffic ticket.

Want a job that makes decent money with little effort, provided you can put up with it, this place is ok.
Sun, Enterprise, Plains... all pay way better for the same level of bs. So not bad, but kindof on the lower
  more... rung of decent oil hauling jobs.

The owners of BKEP, Vitol have very little interest in the trucking aspect of BlueKnight. They're way more involved in the terminaling/storage, and trading aspect of the company.

Solid company
Logistics Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKJune 4, 2015
Not a large company, and while it was chaotic early on, the corporate culture keeps improving with efforts at employee recognition and process improvement. typical day revolves around dispatch trucks, ensuring loads and ticket accuracy, customer service and communication, reports and data collection. I've learned and implemented many processes that have been well received.
Pros
good pay and recognition
Cons
as with most logistics / dispatch the hours are long

operator (Former Employee) –  commerce cityAugust 26, 2015
was an employee for quite a long time in commerce city. micromanagement and low pay is what you want, you have arrived. high turnover rate at both of the commerce city facilities, not bad to operate. just no future, will not help elevate a workers skill set or knowledge in order to increase market desirability of the employee.
Pros
none
Cons
more than can be listed here
