A lot of work, But always a good time!
Maintenance Storeroom Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Pasadena, TXNovember 20, 2017
I worked at the POVAL Business Unit. This was a wonderful working experience and environment. Do your job, follow the rules, be involved and you will get far. One mistake though they are known to let you go. It is okay though, that is the nature of the beast in this type of field.
Pros
Steady Pace, Be honest, Good management, Young culture
Cons
Demands, Work schedule not fixed a lot of early and lates (changes)

QC Analyst (Former Employee) –  Pasadena, TXJuly 17, 2014
Coming out of school is definitely a great company to get you started in the chemical industry, however it does not mean that everyone has a clear path for advancement. This is a company that like many other values engineers in production.

The management is a joke.
Operations (Former Employee) –  Pasadena TXJune 3, 2014
Safety is non existing in this plant (Eval) it's get the job done any way you can and management turns their head. They have a safety program that is just paper work no real meaning behind it. The company as a whole is not bad it's just the middle management ( the click) at this plant. Operators are treated like children and talked down too. If you have any operations experience this is not the plant for you . If your straight out of school and have no where else to go get a year or two here and run. Benefits are below the industry standard no pension and a joke of a bonus program. Money is not bad but you will be worked and treated like a dog to get it.
Pros
It's a paycheck
Cons
The click( which as spread to other plants in the company)
