Anyone applying for a position within the ASR company at lower or middle management is not recommended at all. Positions are filled via whom you know not who is qualified, knowledgeable, experienced, and isn't based on it's hardest workers either. Therefore, the hardest part of the job is workplace culture, social exchanges, and after work meetings. So if you are single, drink, drive, gamble, smoke, and are capable of doing more or many at the same time its time to apply. Overall, if anyone applies for ASR they should know someone within the family business, work administrative, be a senior engineer, be a director, or an intern to start from the very beginning. Wishing everyone the best of luck.
Union members are able to retreat under contract rules and protections.

Lead Production Operator (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – September 10, 2018
The Plant Manager and three out of the six supervisors were fine to work with, other than that no one has an idea what is going on there. Half of the supervisors are lazy and maintenance complains about anything they can. The production planner has no idea what is ever going on and is constantly changing the schedule making it difficult to run certain machines. I've never worked at a facility where the Production Manager is never on the floor and only takes the advice from certain people. I highly recommend that nobody works here, it is not worth the trouble and I'm embarrassed I wasted ten years there.
Operator (Former Employee) – Arabi, LA – June 12, 2018
Good if you just looking to make quick money. But not a place to have a career. No advancement. They do not hire within. Have favorites they will tell you on a Friday that you have to work all weekend. Don’t care about your home life Very poor management.
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – April 19, 2018
Cut throat asr group Chalmette refinery is a joke A bunch of clowns running this place compared to certain jobs. micromanaged supervisors can make their own decisions. when you’re sick or when you have the flu they don’t except doctors notes and they want to write you up when you get points they don’t offer sick time or personal time poor excuse for a job and management.
Breaks and the union is great 1101
Attendance policy sucks and micromanaged supervisors
Good job if you get the overtime that’s about it and poor management
Machine Attendant (Former Employee) – Arabi, LA – April 4, 2018
Management is horrible they try to find any reason to write you up. you’re not even guaranteed 40 hours anymore you get ordered out at any time. some days you might get 24 or 32 hours they don’t offer anything the benefits are trash....THE JOB IS REAL EASY

STAY AWAY FROM THIS TRASH BIN!!
Data Management Lead (Former Employee) – Decatur, IL – March 1, 2018
The business data lead did not want contractors I was the 11 data lead in two years. The twelfth lasted a month after I left. It was impossible to work and deliver even the management team could not help
Great company. The employees worked as a team which was very helpful. Management really cared about employees. I was just a temp and I worked very hard and it showed. When my time was up I didn't want to leave. Two months later they called me back for a permanent position but I had already found a job.
Bulk Operator (Former Employee) – Arabi, LA – November 13, 2017
Domino was a perfect launch point to begin my refining career. Though it differs from the petroleum industry it still teaches you the fundamentals of what it takes to run a complex multi-Unit organization. The culture of the refinery was always safety first as well as maximum efficiency.
Allows you to make your own schedule cause overtime is almost unlimited.
Wish technology was a little more advanced, still doing a lot of manual information sharing instead of digital traformation.
Associate Scientist (Former Employee) – Hoffman Estates, IL – November 7, 2017
For an AS holder this job was a great way to break into the food chem industry, although I did find myself wanting more after a few years of working. When I left to pursue my bachelor's in chemistry they were very supportive of the decision.
