The Products Control Room is a shift worker's nightmare. It's unfortunate that the management of the products pipeline group continues to operate in a reactionary state rather than a proactive manner. If you love having your work schedule changed constantly, being pulled off of special projects because there is never a full staff, missing promotions because management is incompetent and doesn't staff properly, than this is the place for you. Otherwise, seek employment elsewhere.
Constantly understaffed, promotions are few and far between, managment is indifferent to the needs of employees, unbalanced work / personal time schedule
The work itself is not difficult, but it is repetitive. Typical work cycle would be: 1st week of the month you are busy with deadlines, 2nd & 3rd weeks you are refreshing your work templates and updating data, and the 4th week of the month you are meeting with your project managers and updating forecasts.
Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 9, 2018
Worked at KM for several years and felt like years more than I actually was there. Lots of time spent working on nights and weekends & it was expected because others did so. No one else I worked with had children so they did not understand that sometimes you have to take time off and not be at work (nights, weekends, holidays, PTO). I am a strong believer in developing local talent, but KM likes to develop and promise pay bumps & keep stringing along the good workers. They like to reward to workers who may be good enough at there job, but if you bust your butt day in and day out you seem to be left out of the perks that come with being the same "orientation" as others you work with. I have never been the victim of reverse discrimination, but that was the last straw that pushed me to leave for a much better workplace...it wasn't hard to find one.

Move custerners commodity in and out of the terminal by Rail, Barge and ship. KM workplace culture emphasizes safety and customers service. The hardest part of the job was working with in the budgetary resistance to maintain an aging facility.

Operations Production Supervisor (Current Employee) – Geismar, LA – July 23, 2018
At my terminal, you have to stay on top of every aspect of your job. Take the opportunities to get extra work done when you have it and always have a sign of urgency. Stay focused and be ready to change plans through out the day.
Face paced, accuracy very important, and stressful

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.
