I’m currently an employee at the Marathon garage in Indianapolis. It used to be a great place to work until we got new management. Now it seems like the new management is trying to make everyone miserable so they will quit. Now we work days, nights and weekends. Your schedule is different every week. If you apply for a job at Marathon don’t believe anything they tell you, more than likely it is a lie.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Schedule, awful management

Spent 20 years at Marathon. Great benefits retirement plan 401k. Down fall as a driver when transferred from one terminal to next you lose your seniority at the terminal. You maintain your company seniority but lose your terminal seniority. In other words a person with 1 day of terminal seniority will Trump a person with 20 years company seniority.
Pros
Benefits, pay, time off saving and insurance
Cons
Seniority

The Experiences were more then I could've ever asked for. I gained customer interaction skills. Punctuality. They taught me cash handeling, being able to produce change in a fast and proper manner.

It is a Keeper if you stay in your lane. Safety is Key. Do your job right and try to not step on other people toes. Keep you language clean and your jokes too.

Over time Marathon devolved from a little Independent that could to a company that valued the dream over the execution. Continual restructuring of teams, inexperience of middle management, and focus on 100% alignment from staff created an environment that was easy to blur the lines of excellence and achievements.

They compensation was average. My supervisor lacked the knowledge he should have possessed to do his role. Overall it was a good experience. They had a decent Safety Management System. All audits were done on an iPad. The Team Lead was very helpful.
Pros
Good personnel on the location where i worked.
Cons
I was confined to the location for two weeks without a chance to go get supplies.

9/80 work schedule is really flexible. Hardest part of the job is the workload. Management has a vision, but can be reactive instead of proactive. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people.

Oil field is tough and driving is tougher.long days 12-14 for sure.You will have online training to add to the day after your shift plus the long commute back home.Only 2 weeks vacation. I mean literally.You can not even take time off not being payed.You will burn out in the end.
Nobody else in the oil field conducts themselves in this manner.

Decisions made by corporate office staff that have no clue how demanding this job is.Money is good and benefits are great.

Make sure this what you decide your life will be because there is no time for anything else.

I was lucky to work with one of the finest team in the Organization. They were friendly, extremely supportive to me and they welcomed me since day 1. They were open to new ideas and made me feel that I was helpful whenever I could answer their questions and help them find solutions to any problem they encountered.
