Great place to work
Net Developer (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXOctober 8, 2017
Open work environment, so it can get loud.
Team is a blast to work with, and the management is great. Free catered lunches. Great place to intern at, and likely a great place to start or continue forward in a career.

Great company to work for
Temporary Embedded Contractor (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORSeptember 19, 2017
I worked at Nustar temporarily as an embedded contractor. It was originally as an internship for the regional engineer, so I spent the beginning days sifting through and arranging cabinets full of drawings. I later transitioned to field maintenance such as painting and pressure washing. During that time I got a good feel for how operations worked. I enjoyed my time.

High stress work environment. Unprofessional for office environment. Little to no company specific training.
Service Desk Associate (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXApril 13, 2017
I found the position to be a good opportunity, however a little too good to be true. The lack of professionalism and black leadership experience for those in charge clearly made for a sink or swim environment.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
High turnover rate

(Contractor) Project Controls Administrator (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJanuary 12, 2017
A great company to work for with amazing people and atmosphere. There's no place like it in the city. They don't hire on full time very often so that might be the only negative.
Pros
Great cafe, great people and great pay
Cons
they never hire full time. Drug test seem borderline intrusive.

Nustar promotes harassment and bullying
Operator 1 (Former Employee) –  Linden, NJNovember 29, 2016
nustar linden management is unreliable, uneducated, harassing, bullying, career ruining, egotistical. management has threatened employees. discipline runs rampant for no reason. managers have given bad recommendations for former employees to potential new employers to keep them unemployed. management lies thru their teeth. plant manager accepts graft (paid for trips, dinners, "white envelopes") from contractors to guarantee they get the proposed jobs. nustar hr has been told numerous times of the situation and does nothing to fix the problem. you are forced to donate minimum 1% of your pay and only are a good employee if you donate 3%. hours are long. requested time off is rejected. forced to work anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks consecutive. supervisors are chastised by plant manager if they dont crack the whip on operators. worst place to work for. how they ever snowjobbed fortune magazine is beyond me. employees give good reviews to avoid management and corporate harassment.
Pros
pay is there every week
Cons
worthless management, hr doesnt listen, mandatory donation to united way

Terrible facility with incompetent management
Terminal Operator (Former Employee) –  Pittsburg, CASeptember 23, 2014
This is the most unorganized, ridiculous place to work. It's a joke. PPE has to be begged for. The lead operator is petty and condescending. Everything is "tomorrow" or "soon". When you can understand his broken English. Training department is laughable. Extreme favoritism towards contractors (which happen to be lead operators family) NO chance of advancing at this plant. Incidents go unreported. Strict dress code, tattoo policy. Management also strongly suggest you donate money to non profits even though you're working poor. And the volunteer hours are mandatory.. Contradicts itself, I know.
Pros
Good benefits and mutual hatred toward leadership.
Cons
Schedule is a joke, low pay, training needs major help.
