Pays well, but no Refinery job security if profit margins are down at any time
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Canton Ohio – April 29, 2013
I worked at the Canton Refinery, then came a wave of layoffs, due to managements knee-jerk reaction to profit margin for that quarter. Findlay Management always controlled Canton Management, and you always had your manager and dotted line manager, then the District manager, - like in Office Space if you messed up the TPS reports. Not only that but the union does not like to interact with the office workers and vice versa, HR was chaos with constant layoffs and interns to do mediocre gauge readings for corporate tax write offs. People got hurt, OSHA was there We shot a few hundred barrels of petro product into S.W. Canton's air , -then had EPA was here.... Pays well for Canton Ohio, mostly good times while it lasted, no loyalty unless you pay Union dues, all about the Benjamins especially if some guy in Findlay gets a wild hair ..and wants to show that their B.A. in Business Management was all for not move people around Canton refinery like chess pieces on monthly basis...........
training, safety, tools, benefits
poor management, lack of business skills
