Westlake Chemical is a great fit for go-getters! Dynamic & Challenging!
Senior Training and Talent Development Specialist (Current Employee), Houston, TXSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: financially strong, established company, competitive pay, profit sharing, great health, dental & vision care plan, flexible work arrangements, open and honest management
Cons: stringent and even excessive approval processes that can cause unnecessary delays
If you are a person with a "go-getter" attitude who wants to develop professionally, Westlake offers a lot of opportunities for skill set expansion, creative problem-solving and stepping outside of your comfort zone. Input from employees is valued by Management, and there are also a lot of positive improvements being made to promote greater employee – more... collaboration and engagement as well as employee appreciation through profit sharing programs, updating the office environments and internal process improvement.
The big decisions are made very carefully and selectively, such as the recent acquisition of Vinnolit, and the result is a very strong, well-positioned company that should continue to grow and perform impressively from a financial and production standpoint. – less

Safety Supervisor (Current Employee), Calvert City, KYFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: great money with a flexible schedule
Cons: long hours on your feet
We work 4 12 hour days 7 to 7 and 3 10's 7 to 5, During school I have just been working 2 12's on saturday and sunday. First thing every morning I conduct a safety talk to the 70 employee crew I oversee on the job. Being at Westlake I have learned a lot about communication and where it can get you if done efficiently. The hardest part of the job is – more... enduring the cold temperatures for 12 hours a day to make sure my crew is following all safety regulations. i enjoy my time with the guys, they have have taught me a lot. – less
