Valero overall is a good company, but there is always a bad apple in the bunch
Employee (Former Employee), Linden, INMay 11, 2015
Pros: compensation
Cons: I think I said enough above
I can not speak intelligently of the relationship between management and employees at other facilities, but I can give my perspective of the Linden, IN facility.

At this facility you will find some really good people, some really good friends and a career that you may want to take pride in. The good people and good friends are unfortunately starting to leave this facility and I believe it has a bit to do with taking pride in your work. You see, it appears to me that those people that you can count on, that take pride in their work and would ultimately just like to come to work to put in an honest days work to earn a living, plain and simply aren't being appreciated. There is a good deal of favoritism shown to people that are truly lazy or just have poor work ethics because they know how to "shmooze" or kiss butt. Alternatively, those people that show up everyday on time and try to do their best seem to get no recognition at all. So this has lead this facility to a point where a large number of the experienced staff are looking to move on. They have tried and tried to move up based on merits, but that doesn't seem to work. They have tried to make improvements to the everyday work life only to have it all demolished by those that really do not care or by poor choices made by management for which they never take credit. I have witnessed such things as a member of management making a change to the process which produced wasted product, but then let someone else take the responsibility of the mistake. I have witnessed the plant manager turn his cheek on a safety issue that he – more... was involved in, but fired others for much smaller issues by comparison.

Suffice it to say that I could go on and on about these issues, but I won't. Just keep an eye open for all of the job postings that are to come soon. The amount of turnover should speak for itself.

I would even suggest filling out an application because I believe some day in the near future there will be changes to management which, more importantly, should create changes to the culture.

Just keep in mind that if you are the sort of individual that likes to take ownership or pride in his/her work, you will be sorely disappointed here until something changes. – less

Team Member (Former Employee), El Paso, TXMay 1, 2015
Pros: basic health insurance
Cons: no breaks
There was never a boring day at work. I learned how to be efficient in cleaning a work place, the cash register, and how to communicate with customers. My co-workers were team players and helped. The hardest job was multi-tasking throughout the entire work day. The most enjoyable was meeting new people.

Its a gas station
Graveyard Shift (Former Employee), Rimforest, CAMarch 16, 2015
Pros: most nights are slow
Cons: no one to help if it gets busy, no discount
Not much to say here. Graveyard shift at a gas station. A lot of work with only two employees on the clock. The best part of working there was the rare occurrence where a customer needed help and I was able to help them.

A typical day at work prepping my shift ready to work, maintain work place clean and safe customers happy. Learning to do a little bit of ordering and paper work. The hardest part is unhappy customers. The enjoyable part of the job is customers stories and were there traveling places.

an endless nightmare to work at
Gas Station Attendant (Former Employee), Austin, TXMarch 8, 2015
Pros: free drink from fountain
Cons: no lunch break
When I first started, I was already told that my job would be terminated if I did not pass certain training requirements. Luckily, I did pass. But throughout my time there, the manager was incompetent and lashed out on his employees daily with rude notes and verbal threats. I ended up voluntarily quitting after finding employment through a staffing agency. I would recommend working anywhere else but Valero.

very fast paced and mostly solo
Subway Sandwich Artist (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXFebruary 22, 2015
Pros: good pay and hours
Cons: no determined breaks, not a lot of help, 90% by yourself without managment
when i was there i barely saw the manager, we mostly worked by ourselves because not a lot of people worked in our area so we worked all the time. people expected us to be fast paced but we were stretched so thin it was very stressful especially if youre going to school like i was. so if you work there you have to be dedicated to it.
