Great place to work
Process Engineer Co-op (Former Employee) –  Paulsboro, NJJune 26, 2017
Really dont have many bad things to say. Expect to work 10 hard hrs a day with 1 hr for lunch. Work can often come home with you via cell phones. Members of the team are often responsible for answering calls when not on main shift.

Scheduler-Clean Products, Commercial Operations (Former Employee) –  Parsippany, NJJune 6, 2017
Sets you up to fail by being under-trained moving from role to role.
Any change in responsibility considered a "lateral move" that does not warrant salary or perks increase.
Pros
good healthcare
Cons
long hours, little vacation time

Long hours to work for pay that may or may not be enough. People are great, though.
Engineer (Former Employee) –  USAApril 4, 2016
There is no formal training, so you either sink or swim when you get in. Some people hate the stress, others love it. It really all depends on you.

Expect to learn a lot about everything, but never dive deep into anything.

Fast-Growing Company but Poor Management
Traffic Analyst (Current Employee) –  Parsippany, NJMarch 9, 2014
For a traffic analyst, each day would consist of matching BOLS for rail, vessel, pipeline or truck moves to the the corresponding contracts, ensure accounting transactions generating correctly for invoices, troubleshooting issues with system of record, and playing the role as a liaison between accounting, risk and commercial operations departments.

I learned an incredible amount about the oil industry; the scheduling aspect (supply chain and logistics for rail, vessel and pipeline movements) the accounting side, the economics of the deals traders' executed. I also learned how vital communication is to a corporate environment and how to alter communication techniques based on the audience. Seeing an oil business develop over the past year and half also taught me about the growing pains of young corporate companies.

Management was extremely political and the hiring/promotion process was very biased; still have not received any formal performance evaluation after numerous requests; lack of system and position training and documentation of processes greatly inhibited company growth and was a detriment to the overall corporate environment; empty promises made on promotions, very little transparency on decisions made higher up in the corporate hierarchy.

Little to no company culture, would not sponsor any athletic or team events, little to no philanthropy, health benefits were good

Growing amount of recent college grads, but mostly men and women ranging from 30-60. Overall negative attitude about system issues put unnecessary black clouds over everyone's heads.

Hardest
  more... part about the job was trying to accurately portray real-life scenarios in the system. Time management and prioritizing was difficult as well.

Most enjoyable part has been learning about the energy industry; some of the people have also been a pleasure to work with. Also hours weren't that strict, laissez-faire management was also a perk at times.

Good if you know your job

Good place to work with safe track record. Good money if you can come in and learn/do your job. Management can make poor decisions at time but every company has this problem.
Pros
Good money, easy jobs
Cons
Management not very sharp

Bad company all the was around
Former Employee (Former Employee) –  ToledoNovember 21, 2012
Too much inbreeding from both the petroleum industry and Sunoco family. No accountability instilled in the management team, everything boils down to perception over reality. Several benefits are based more on favoritism vs. standard company.

PFB Corporate is of no help with employee matters, major nepotism there too! Don't expect any service from HR.

PM only wants yes people, remember preception is what counts.
Pros
good place to put your time in and collect a check, keep your expectations low
Cons
financial leadership is incompetent, gaap goes right over their heads don't even know how to calc ppv
