60 hours plus a week due to poor management and short staff. Should be a rotating 2-2-3 schedule but the majority of the year consist of over time coverage dude to being short staff. Management has terrible people and decision making skills. The pay is good.

Production (Former Employee) – South Carolina – October 5, 2018
I loved working for this company. New leadership came in and wrecked it. Employees are very bitter. All employees are being threatened with their jobs over attendance. Personnel are being threatened for time off from work, even when is an approved Short Term Disability, you can get called back in and threatened. Sad that it has went this far down the rabbit hole.
Good pay for what you do
Production is always put before safety. While it is preached differently, approved work orders can sit in a cue for over a year.
Extrusion Area Specialist (Former Employee) – Narrows, VA – August 29, 2018
Enjoyed working at Celanese. There was great chances for advancement. Great pay and vacation time. Great training when moving from one position to another within the facility. I would like the opportunity to work there again.
I worked there for 3 months. I worked as a materials engineering intern. I enjoyed my time there and had no problems with the employees there. I would work there in the future if the opportunity arises.
Fiber Operator (Former Employee) – Narrows, VA – June 19, 2018
I loved working for the company, they pay very well. Only thing is that when i worked there certain employees did not like to be out worked and would try their best to get others fired. I did not care to get a promotion so I never really looked into that. Some workers would bring things in from outside of work to make others feel bad about their past. However the company and work that I did was great I miss it very much, and wish I could work there again.
Process Operator (Former Employee) – Pampa, TX – June 5, 2018
Great place to plant your roots. The longevity within certain locations have made this a great place to work. Many workers have more than 15 years of service leads to a plethora of knowledge and great leadership.
Human Resource (Current Employee) – Irving Texas – June 4, 2018
Celanese is a great company but the HR department is a horrible group to work in. DO NOT work in HR! It is like high school and the leaders think they are prom queens and you are lucky to be in their presence.
Process Operator (Current Employee) – Narrows, VA – May 19, 2018
The schedule is terrible. Not only is the schedule terrible, every operating unit in the plant is understaffed and a mandatory overtime system is in place that routinely calls for process operators to work a 16 hour shift.
IT Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – May 7, 2018
Celanese is one of those companies that stands out in the best of the best when you work there. The people are very friendly and help new comers adjust to their processes. Although I have heard of some managers that were more self-serving. Most of the Management teams are very progressive, well educated, and understand life happens. Hardest part of the job was being available to help some people in different time zones and I sometimes required Myself to be available late at night to help meet and train some of the foreign groups. The most enjoyable part of the job was also working with each of the groups and feeling that they appreciated you assistance.
