Wish I could of retired it here but it was too stressful and not enough room for growth. I learned I was on my own and always ran above standard and in a safe manor but was still hounded over issue that were out of my control performing job functions above my pay grade. Then must enjoyable part was getting good product out to the consumers

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.
No set realistic expectations for goals in tasking to salary members
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

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
