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.
pay is there every week
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.
Terminal Operator (Former Employee) – Pittsburg, CA – September 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.
Good benefits and mutual hatred toward leadership.
Schedule is a joke, low pay, training needs major help.
Operator (Current Employee) – Texas City, Tx. – October 3, 2013
Great Company, solid and positive goals even in this shaky economy. very physical job in all kinds of weather. supportive management group even with the hard line union workers that resist change. company places safety first as the employees are the number one asset.
Great Benefits, Positive Management Culture, Safety First
Union Leadership at this Terminal is divisive and overly critical

NuStar Energy is a great company with a great corporate environment that enables success. I worked in the right of way department and this was an eye opening experience that gave a large insight into the industry.
