Oil Technician transport (Current Employee) – Kilgore, TX – April 4, 2017
stuck in a rut as far as money goes what you get doesn't change so make sure you are comfortable cause I have been through about 15k a year decrease a year ago and it still hasn't been raised back up . the back bone of the company is the driver with out them to gather oil purchased and prove it right the company would fade to dust but they are treated the worst
Great Company to work for. The workload fluctuates a bit much though. The picking up and delivering of different type product such as LPG, Condisate, and Crude Oil was great while it lasted. Management was over all pretty fair and not much pressure. The commute for me was the biggest issue I had with this job. It wasn't great when they provided Lodging for us but since the work sight was located in South Texas It was quite a commute from Rosharon Tx. They only provided Lodging for three months.

Plains is a crudeoil hauler that picks up oil from customers that then is unloaded at a bulk storage that is shipped to be refined. Management is very good. Co-workers are very helpful and willing to help. Hardest part of the job is the adverse weather conditions that you have to be in.

Class A comb X-Hazardous Material (Former Employee) – Casper, WY – April 10, 2015
My Job with Plains Marketing was a very challenging because of the weather condition"s mountain trend to locations. I enjoyed this part very much, had great men to work with we helped each other and worked very well together, made the job very easy to get up and go to work each an ever day.
My most hardest part of the job was the computer, did everything with the computer.What I really like was the logs for DOT was done this way, so no time spending time making out logs every time you stop.
As far as management, I think I got along with my supervision well because I did my job well and had very good work ethics, I did my job & worked with others, so I did not have problems with my supervision.
my own boss as far as how i did my ever day tasks as long as i got the job done
did not like the break, i needed to take before 8 hours, because it made it difficult to get done in a 14 hour day
great place to work management team was very well trained

working with offshore and pipeline equipment can be stressful due to scheduling issues, being on call 7 days a week can be troubling at times but the support staff of this company was enduring. the in field co-workers seem to be very knowledgeable and helpful.
District Manager (Current Employee) – Enid, OK – October 21, 2012
Plains is a great employer. My reasons for leaving are personal. My family was not able to relocate with me and the strain of the separation has taken its toll on us. My wife and I would like to stay in Texas and I have made the decision to leave Plains only so I can be with my family.
Lead Driver/Trainer (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 23, 2012
Up till just recently Plains Marketing was a Great Employer to work for. Due to a recent Policy Change regarding oil splills if a Driver makes one mistake then He/She is Fired on the spot no matter if it was equipment failure or not. As a result of this policy the company has let go 3 Drivers who were long term employees and had exellent backgrounds. Plains Marketing has moved in a direction that does not consider that people do make mistakes.
