Clueless micro management
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 17, 2016
Overall as a operator easiest job ever. Management has an ego and believes he knows everything with zero degree. All addicts and favortism is obvious when coes to shifts and raises. Training is non existent. They learn everything through YouTube and become pros. They are unsafe only care about not getting fined not about the employees well being. Selfish and clueless management was the worst and the raises were tiny. Employees are Underpaid for what they are responsible for.
Pros
U can do nothing all day
Cons
The manager is stupid

Fun Place to work but need adjustment to management
Sr. Corporate Tax Accountant (Former Employee) –  Galleria Area of Houston, TexasSeptember 27, 2016
Some of the managers, especially payroll area, need to be more experienced and contribute work in the area to set examples for his area. Priorities need to be set in place as to method of paying bills in the A/P area.
This is an open concept arrangement which can be a bit distracting at times and cramp for space.

Not a stable environment, but good benefits and pay.
1st Shift Safety Attendant (Former Employee) –  Carson, CAFebruary 3, 2014
If you do not know someone that has a high position or favored with the company, you will only work short periods when they need extra people. It is very hard to move up in position as well stay stable with that employer. On the other hand, the pay is very reasonable due to the dangerous environment and work supplied.
Pros
Good compensation
Cons
Must know someone to get constant work

Very Productive and Informative workplace
Safety Engineer (Former Employee) –  Compton, CASeptember 28, 2012
An easy day consist of ten hours of policy enforcing of OSHA codes and ordinances. Daily training of facility expectations, in regards to gas moniotiring use, evactuation drills, etc.
There was room for advancement in leadership and pay. The most enjoyable part of the job was being filled with so much information of such and industry, and the knowledge of vessels and their uses, etc. The hardest part would have to be the high distances in climbing with a lot of equipment, radio walkie talkies, various gas monitors.
Pros
the long hours
Cons
the weather and occasional lay offs
