Great people at CVR
Admin Support (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, KSOctober 2, 2017
I worked as a contractor with CVR for over 5 years so didn't get the benefits that full time employees receive. It was a great place to work and I enjoyed the people and my job while there but was laid off.
Pros
Safe place, great people, nice work environment

Decent place to start a career.
Job (Former Employee) –  Coffeyville, KSSeptember 20, 2017
Overall its not a horrible place to work. Its good as a first place to start your career, but not one to finish it in. They do usually follow the advice from Sugarland (who don't know how the refinery is actually running) however.

Not the best at career advancement or leadership
Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Sugarland, TXSeptember 5, 2017
The pay is good, but management is incompetent in some areas. The turnover is ridiculous, they either fire you because management does not like you or people just quit without even having a job to go to. Most ex-employees enjoy not being employed there regardless on how they left.

Not What Was Expected
Employee (Former Employee) –  Sugar Land, TXAugust 6, 2017
This company has several flaws. The biggest by far is their abuse of lower end staff members. The low ratings for this company on other sites are well deserved. This company is a horrible place to work compared to its competitors.
Pros
Good location outside of downtown
Cons
Insurance is horrible, managers are terrible

Political Atmosphere and Lack of Processes
Manager (Former Employee) –  Sugar Land, TXMay 5, 2017
Company lacks communications and leadership from top down. Culture is divisive. If you are good with your boss or director then you will move up regardless of experience or skills.
Pros
good pay
Cons
benefits are horrible

God Complexes with Executive Staff
Administrator (Former Employee) –  Sugar Land, TXDecember 5, 2016
If you enjoy a good benefit package, look elsewhere. If you believe Executive Management needs to be exceptional, look elsewhere. The pay is not bad, however it lacks in most everything else. Trickle down poverty.
Pros
Nah

Senior Project Engineer (Former Employee) –  Coffeyville, KSAugust 5, 2016
I learned a lot about how an oil refinery operates and how projects are conducted within an oil refinery environment. I developed many friendships over the years with fellow employees. Overall refinery management was very good.
Pros
Developed good working relationships with fellow employees.
Cons
Limited opportunities for advancement within the company.

They will always do it that way.
Contractor (Former Employee) –  Coffeyville, KSFebruary 29, 2016
With a mindset and management style that is just as old as the oil they refine, CVR will always do it they way it has been done in the past. The amount of time, personnel and money wasted are beyond normal comprehension.
If you are not aware or care about cost saving in the workplace, can not adapt to change, or don't care about doing a good job, CVR is the place for you!
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Management wears blinders

good pay, good people to work with.
FCCU Operator (Current Employee) –  Wynnewood, OKJune 29, 2015
There is no typical day at work. one never knows what he or she is going to walk into on a day to day basis, from how the unit is running to what kind of hair brain idea the management has come up with to "make things better". There is a lot of opportunity to learn on a day to day basis with the way they push you to get qualified so quickly. The best part of my job other than the good pay would have to be the group of people I work with. Working the 12 hour shifts allows you to really get to know your coworkers. You really become more like family than coworkers in that you spend so much time together. You laugh, cuss, fight , and stand up for one another and help each other whenever the time calls for it without question. You even cry and console one another when you have lost one of your fellow coworkers , because your home family doesn't quite understand like your work family. The hardest part of my job would have to be being away from my kids as much as I am.
Pros
good pay, good people to work with
Cons
benifits are horrible, and other things

I&E Field Engineer and Construction Manager (Former Employee) –  Wynnewood, OKAugust 14, 2013
Overall, for the short time I was there, the company seemed to be ok. I was told that there was 18 months on the books for project work and possibly another additional 18 months after that. The work ended after 4 months and I was given an ROF.
