Facilities/Mailroom department nightmare
Facilities Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 16, 2018
All I have to say about the company is that they have a great office in the Eldridge/FM529 area. I worked in the Facilities/Mailroom dept. It was only me and the mailroom manager and the facilities manager that had been there for about 30 years each. It's was so stressful working there because of all the micro managing by both supervisors.
Pros
hours 7-4
Cons
Old school managers think they own the place

AutoCrib Specialist/Inventory Management (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 3, 2018
Arrive to customer accounta, assess inventory and determine reorders and requisitions. Place special orders on priority.

The people I met and worked with were awesome and very helpful.

The most challenging part to the job was determining whether material was a buyout of specialty manufactured in house.
Pros
Company expense card, laptop and company truck
Cons
No availability for advancement

Minimal Advancement Opportunity
Branch Manager (Current Employee) –  Lindsay, OKJuly 23, 2018
Once you make it to Branch Manager level the chances to advance are few and far between. The jobs that are considered a promotion do not come available very often and the return you get for that promotion is generally not worth it from a pay standpoint.

Company with a wide array of products and technologies in the energy sector.
Regional Sales Manager, District Manager (Former Employee) –  Jackson, MSJuly 6, 2018
Faced paced daily demands.

Learn how to collaborate with large businesses.

Management comprised of people that understand building financial success for stakeholders and how to help their client meet financial demands.

Workplace culture has a strong work ethic.

The 24 hour, 7 day work week cycle can be challenging to manage.

The company exposes their employees to fascinating technology needed to help supply citizens with the energy needed to power our lives and our economy.
Pros
Education tuition.
Cons
The industry volatility doesn’t facilitate job security.

Not good
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Carlsbad, NMJune 21, 2018
The Devon branch in Carlsbad is unorganized, they keep changing the rules and routine daily so the employees are confused as to what to do. Most the warehouse workers and bosses talk about each other behind their backs. They dont train you, they just throw you out in left field and hope you know what you're doing, they are very big on chewing butt daily, they definitely have their favorites, and if you're not a favorite you get your butt chewed daily. They will not fix properly or buy new air conditioners so you are miserably hot all day, will never work there again, or suggest a friend work there. They don't pay enough attention to their employees in the back and a lot goes on behind their back.

Rampant favoritism
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  United StatesApril 27, 2018
Upper management protects subpar workers while overlooking those that actually do the job. Long hours, responsibilities constantly changing. If you’re not part of the “good ole boys” club, you’re expendable. Be careful, you could be the next scapegoat . Management lacks long-term vision, they’re just looking out for number one and however long they can keep their paycheck. Very cutthroat.
Pros
Pay, benefits
Cons
Corporate is clueless. Area managers play God.

New management could be better but I am no longer there so I am not worried about it. There is something for me out there that is better for me. That is all I can look forward to.

Great place to work
Finance Intern (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 23, 2018
That being said it is a great opportunity if you go into knowing what it is. Expect 50+ work weeks during NON-busy season times.

DNOW’s finance department is great place to work. The people are super knowledgeable and very friendly.

I would highly recommend them.
Pros
Great peolple
Cons
So goes the price of oil, so goes DNOW

Stressful, Work load was high.

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Concord, CADecember 9, 2017
This place taught me so much in the time that I was there and they took a chance on me to train me into a position that I had no experience in. They are great people and have a great work community.
