Not comfortable reviewing company
Employee (Former Employee) –  TexasJanuary 20, 2017
I was laid off by Hess, while my time there was enjoyable I'm not crazy about how it ended. Be cautious on giving up a stable job for a job at Hess.

Cashier/Customer Service/Stock (Former Employee) –  Canandaigua, NYJanuary 18, 2017
My typical work day would be come in count the safe in between customers, make sure food was fresh and ready by lunch time, count cigarettes in between customers, then while another cashier was there go in cooler and make sure everything was stocked full and kept stocked threw out the day. Deliveries were on Tuesdays and Fridays for the cooler and Saturdays for the rest of the store. i would check t make sure everything was in the order was there and then stock the shelves with what came in. i would organize what was let in stock room.
Pros
Fun people to work with
Cons
Didn't get official breaks had to eat at register

Good Company with too many Management Levels
Advisor (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 2, 2017
Overall Hess is a good company to work for. They have a good pay scale and excellent benefits. However, for the size of the company, there are too many management layers.In fact, with their recent round of layoffs, they said they were going to eliminate layers. Instead they concentrated layoffs on senior technical staff and kept managers.

The layoffs were bad of course, but this is the oil business. It is part of the normal business cycle. It is how you handle it. Hess handled it decently, but they were too careful to protect the wrong employees.

The office is great and the work environment is good. Great location in downtown Houston with plenty of access to everything in Houston. Good onsite dining. Discounted Starbucks level coffee bar on location in addition to all the normal free coffee on each floor.
Pros
Flexible schedule, dining. location, pay, benefits
Cons
Limited opportunities, limited management skill

Downtown
Advisor (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 27, 2016
I enjoyed working at Hess -- the worst part of the day was the commute. The work was always interesting and on the cutting edge of exploration. Technology, however, wasn't always on the cutting edge. Strong tendency to favor younger employees and support their work even when it may not have been technically correct. Not so great if you are over 50.
Pros
benefits; compensation; exciting projects; mostly great co-workers; onsite lunchroom
Cons
random layoffs; great teams - horrible teams; personality conflicts

Great Company
P2P Supply Chain Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 4, 2016
They were probably the one of the very last oil and gas company to lay off. They did it as tastefully as they could. They have an onsite all you can eat food cafeteria for $6.00. I did gain a lot of weight there. They have an onsite gym for $20 plus tax.
Pros
Parking, people and before oil took a nose dive, times were good.
Cons
Small Supply Chain organization

Hostile Environment
Corp Tax Associate (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 29, 2016
Corp Tax days are long & hectic with many deadlines.Tax Sr. Leadership & Management lack empathy & proper communication regarding their subordinates. Sometimes work environment is hostile and colleagues are cut throat due to management's unfair treatment.

Materials & Procurement Lead (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 3, 2016
Recent years Hess has forgotten that it is an oil & gas company and tries to work as a manufacturer. Management track incorrect metrics & knows little about business. Supply Chain forgets who the customer is & what Hess does
