Contract Administrator (Contractor (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 17, 2017
Enjoy working for Braskem as a Contractor. Project team is friendly and focused on a job well done. Many of the staff are from the original plant owner. It is nice they are able to still support their plants under Braskem's flag of ownership.

Maintenance Engineer (Former Employee) –  Duque de Caxias, BraszilFebruary 3, 2016
Reporting to the Engineering Manager, I worked with global minimum cost analysis, in order to identify the best integration point between the petrochemical complex and its electrical system; I also worked in an electrical conceptual design creation, indicating the basic equipment features, following the projects’ philosophy based on Brazilian and Foreign standards and corporate procedures. Following the best practice in energy transforming and distribution through the electrical system inside of the complex, the goal was provide the service to the whole petrochemical plants belonging to the project.

Braskem - Human Resources
Human Resources Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Marcus Hook, PAJune 26, 2015
Braskem is a plant. This challenging HR position required constant focus and energy. Working my way up from receptionist to the HR Coordinator was a very difficult and wonderful accomplishment.
While this was one of the best positions I have ever held, I had to follow my dreams and pursue Culinary Arts.
Pros
Challenging, Friendly work environment, Diverse responsibilities
Cons
Not my dream

The management team was more hands on willing to get involved.My co-workers were friendly and willing to teach if you were willing to learn.I was a temp employee but everyone made you feel like you were part of the team. Hardest part of the job was not being able to learn about different areas the job.Most enjoyable was working with the people around you.
