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

Excellent benefits, job security. NuStar Energy leads in job market employee satisfaction. The sense of community and management this company and it's employees provide makes it the most enjoyable part of the job. You are proud to work for them.

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.

Overall NuStar Energy would currently merit 3 1/2 stars out of 5
Health & Safety Specialist (Current Employee) –  Corpus Christi, TXOctober 16, 2013
NuStar is still fairly new to the industry. The company's core values come from the top leadership team. The safety of employees is the top priority and discussed on a daily basis.

NuStar believes in giving back to the community from Coast to Coast. Volunteerism, United Way and other charities / event are part of the every day business.

Compensations and Benefits are some of the best in the industry.

The company does seem to be struggling a bit with its sense of direction for the future. There are some new faces on the upper management team while some have retired or moved on.
