Face paced, accuracy very important, and stressful

Face paced, friendly drivers
Management was bad, but has changed up since I left.
Measurement Analyst II (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 24, 2018
KM is a great place to work. Depending on what group you are in and who you report to directly, you can be extremely happy here or extremely unhappy. I was fortunate enough to work for someone who was open-minded, fair, and looked for opportunities to promote inclusion and training.

Accounting Assistant (Former Employee) – Cook County, IL – June 18, 2018
Pros: Really good pay; hours were good; usually done by 3:30-4:00pm Mon-Fri. Easy dress code; jeans and a casual top. The plant/outside workers are really nice and helpful. It's interesting to learn about all the materials the company keeps on property and how everything is shipped in through barges.
Cons: Some of the customer service reps seem to bully other employees in the office and find it funny. The lady who runs the scale is crazy. She didn't like certain employees who worked in the office and was very rude and often tried to make up stories to get some of those people in trouble. It made no sense; upper management supported this behavior and often turned their heads when they were made aware of issues. It's like working with kids in highschool and cliques. Ridiculous.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – June 13, 2018
i was stressful but well paid. I feel like with better supervisors training would have gone smoother. There is defiantly a click type of environment among workers and staff and it can feel hostile at times.
Every Monday there were 2 safety meeting then followed by a crew meeting to get the day lined out. After words we'd get all the tools needed for the day, inspect our work area for any hazards, and set up for work. One of the best parts about working there was that if you had a question on how something needed to be done they wouldn't just tell you they'd also show you the correct way and safe way of doing it. Everyone there made sure that the job was going right and that no one was in harms way
The Job was close.
needed more hours. started me off at a low pay rate
Data Entry Operator (Former Employee) – Vicksburg, MS – June 3, 2018
It is a great job to work, the best thing is you work a lot of overtime. The guys are all friendly and speak to you with a respectful way. It is no more than 2 working in the office. As time progress, you will work by yourself.
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – June 3, 2018
Kinder Morgan is a company that is very focused on the shareholder and as a result tends to forget about the employee. The culture leans a bit conservative and also older. Most people do not want to leave their positions, which makes it harder for younger talent to move up.
There is not a lot of turnover and advancement takes a long time. The management is good, but still finding its way with the high pace of growth. The culture is a mix of several companies that varies with the area of work.
Low turnover and long waits for open positions to advance.
No chance for advancement. Management treated grown men like animals. Just work and dont aak questions. Easy to get fired. No stable work hours. Safety is non existent. They preach safety in meeting, but the whole operation is dangerous and unsafe.
Project and Tank Manager (Current Employee) – Orange, CA – May 24, 2018
This company does not take care of their employees, only cares about their bottom line. The communication from employee to management is terrible. The Management passes the buck any chance it gets and will make the employee the fall guy. they make promises and do not follow through. promotions and raises are very difficult to achieve, but they will pile on more work regardless. Even when company makes a multi billion dollar surplus, they still docked employees bonuses.
Safety is a bid concern for km, the overtime is there but no room for advancement because everyone stay in position.Management is understanding of your situation and will not push you pass your safety comfort.
No advancement, they like to hire outside instead of promotions from within
