Both current and former associates of Western Refining are in agreement on two things about the company: "the benefits are excellent" and "there is very little work-life balance here." Employees indicate that "hours are long, and you are expected to put in overtime." Despite this, many say that "there are good opportunities for advancement" with the company and "safety is always a priority." – less
