At Hess, I very often had to run the entire gas station by myself, which provided me with future tools and abilities to function at a high level in the job market.

Project Manager - Topside Integrity Program (Current Employee) –  HoustonJuly 15, 2016
Great place to work with high level of autonomy for your area of responsibility. Typical 8:00 - 5:00 workday but no expectation on the hours worked as long as work is getting done. This generally meant coming in @ 6:30 and finishing anytime after 4:00pm.

Good management team that is hands-off but very supportive as were the co-workers.

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.

Refinery Operator (Former Employee) –  Port Reading, NJMay 21, 2014
V ery stressful environment from day one! Poor training or none at all! Old regime was only worried about place being clean,very dangerous place to work in the first several years.Final regime was much better.Company had little or no attendance policy,people constantly out sick,disabled which forced others to work almost twice as much.Family life/morale to mgmt.never occurred at all.Very diiifcult to raise a family under their conditions.Co workers who were lazy or didn,t care seemed to be rewarded with less to do.Hardest part of the job were the long hours and things always going poorly.Enjoyable part was seeing how everything worked.
Pros
Decent salary eventually.
Cons
Healthcare plan poor, poor attendance, poor job of promoting underserving individuls.

Good benefits, politics prevail, abuse of employees
Senior Geological Technician (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 30, 2015
Company is in a constant state of re-organization. Lack of preparation of well forseen projects by the poor management there causes employees to have to work long hours and miss the target for the project. Politics and favorites are a definite part of the work climate in many teams. Management finds one person to pin all of their failures on in order to stay on top. Sexism, discrimination, and illegal practices are alive and well in the company.
Pros
$6 all you can eat lunch, 1:1.3 matching 401K, pension, good benefits

Fun, Challenging workplace where I could improve the store appearance and sales.
Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Ware, MAMay 3, 2016
Typical day at work was managing worker schedules, ordering replacement inventory, managing store displays and bank deposits. People skills in supervising staff. Staff was challenging as most were entry level and their "call out" required me to work their shift. The hardest part of the job was keeping the inventory accurate as shrinkage was an issue. The enjoyable part of the job was working well with associates and management team.
Pros
The fun and challenge of retail.
Cons
Employee call outs

Geological Technician (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 15, 2013
As a geological technician in an exploration team at Hess no day is the same. The needs of the team change with the development of the project, so duties also change as the team members request different information and support. Everyone in the team is respectful and professional. The hardest part of the job is meeting deadlines that can sometimes come on the same day of the request. The most enjoyable part of the job is not having to perform the same tasks everyday and learning the different parts of the business as the needs of the project require different approaches.
Pros
competitive salary. every other friday off due to 9/80 work schedule
