Drummer/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Bowling Green, OHMarch 31, 2017
It was a very dangerous and hot working environment. This job would not be for most people. The chemicals were very dangerous. Bosses seem fair. There were some nice people.

Decent wage & benefits
Transport Driver (Former Employee) –  Painesville, OHMarch 30, 2017
While the company has a long and stable history in Painesville they have really changed since they changed their evaluation & hiring process. A good company to work for, once and if they hire you as they don't have a time period set to offer you a position and some positions almost never get a job offer. Regarding management, except for your immediate supervisors who in my experience were great and very knowledgeable, there is very little interaction with those in middle or upper management.
Pros
Decent wages, great training programs
Cons
My or my not get permenent job offer & don't know when. Looked down on until hired.

Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Kingsville, TXMarch 2, 2017
The company is great, it is located in a small community and it is oilfield related.

There is always a chance that the company will downsize or the oilfield business goes into further decline
Pros
Good communication between management and employees

Limited growth in this industry currently

I was a chemical operator at Lubrizol which entailed unlaoding and loading various chemicals into tanker trailers. It was not a bad place to work at all.

nepotism, favoritism
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJuly 22, 2016
Most of managers are friends or related to each other. No chance for anyone else to advance. Almost all of the employees are from the same small town. The 2 operator leads are brothers, and both of the supervisors are also from that same town. Even the trainer is the brother in law of one of the supervisors.He even has another brother in law and a nephew here. The plant manager socializes with this group of people, and couldn't care less about the rest of us.I am surprised that a company as big as Lubrizol allows this.
Pros
somre great hourly employees
Cons
Again, favoritism and nepotism

Busy place, very dynamic, friendly co-workers
Instrument Technician (Former Employee) –  Wickliffe, OHMarch 17, 2016
Given several job assignment at morning meeting, met with persons or groups involved,waited, discussed job requirements, more waiting,
met with more more people involved- Hey there are safety requirements- or pre-work that needed to be done prior to you hands on, so more waiting.

Get my point! Efficiency- not priority, safety is first
Some managers didn't get that!

Well...Least the place was fairly safe, despite...
Pros
Variety of assignments
Cons
Contractor-no benifits

Senior Research Chemist (Former Employee) –  Brecksville, OHJanuary 22, 2016
There wasn't really a "typical" day at work. My time was split as needed on polymer design, synthesis, formulating, testing, consulting, manufacturing, scale-up, HSE issues, brainstorming, patent writing/editing, and much more! The most enjoyable part of the job was being presented with many problem-solving opportunities.

Chemical Operator (Former Employee) –  Lewisville, TXJuly 22, 2015
lots of diversity and almost like a family there very tight knit. But the flip side of that is everyone is in your business and gossip spreads quite fast. Management is very approachable and always looking for growth in the company and the employees.
