Gas Scheduler (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 25, 2018
People are dropping like flies....if you are looking for long term employment go else where. There are Supervisor's and workers dating, living together and some married working in the same department. You have to sign a work ethics book but no work ethics here. Upper management doesn't seem to care as long as it doesn't impact them.
Accountant (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – January 1, 2018
American Midstream is in an aggressive growth mode with many acquisitions and investments from its private equity backer. It is an exciting time to be at the company, but the many additions has created a chaotic work environment. Enough of the right people are starting to be hired and remain at the company, but it's still an immature company with an immature culture and still trying to find it's way.
Senior Division Order Analyst (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – November 6, 2017
I enjoyed travelling for this job and learning several positions and two new systems. However, there was a detrimental change in management and I was left with no back up support when I returned to the Houston office. The workload became unbearable with no chance of work/life balance. My advice would be to carefully review this company and seek out previous employees for their take since this is my opinion and I am not speaking on the behalf of others.
Travel, exposure to new systems
Uncomfortable work stations, very long hours, healthcare benefits were lacking.
Lied to repeatedly about pay coming up to be competitive with other companies in the area. I hauled crude oil out of the Perryton, Texas yard. Water haulers made more money than us on the same locations. I left for a crude hauling company paying nearly double my wages with AMID. AMID would short my hours or commission and say it would be made up on the coming paychecks and never was. STAY AWAY from this company in the crude transport division.
Data Control Assistant (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 13, 2017
American Midstream was a family friendly place to work if you were the child of an employee or upper management. They didn't treat lower level employees fairly and were not very accommodating to those who had medical conditions.
Finance (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – June 17, 2016
The Denver office culture was fantastic, but that is no more as all corporate functions are being consolidated to Houston. I can't speak for what the dynamic will be in the new Houston office with so many new people and a great deal of change and turnover company-wide. Should be good for the company long-term, but everything will likely be a bit rocky for the foreseeable future.
Private equity sponsors are very supportive of the company and are always looking for new ways to help the company grow. New CEO is very focused on getting the company into a better financial positions.
Operator (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – December 29, 2015
learned a lot about the process operator profession and worked with some good guys in a positive work environment.The plant power failures were the most unpleasant experiences,because some co-workers didn't know what to do in those situations.The best part was getting the plant back online in a timely fashion with little or no help.
