The job took a lot. I worked 12-hour shifts with rotating day and night shifts every 4 days on and 4 days off. I got called in on my days off because we took turns being on call. I worked lots of overtime. The average overtime for someone is 500+ hours. The other employees were great to work with. They were like family. We worked together, ate together, and just hung out during the downtime there. I am very sad to be leaving. I worked at the Martinez Marathon Refinery, which was shut down in November 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Pros
Free lunch during turnarounds, lots of overtime, great co-workers, great pay, great retirement
Cons
You work a lot, you are there for over 12 hours a day, on work days that was pretty much all I did, no going out or anything.

Learning constantly and growing as an individual. Management could use some attention though. Also need to invest more in the facilities infrastructure.

I can honestly say that this is the best job ive ever had plan on retiring here, management doesn't micromanage unless you give them a reason to. Pay could be better but i work alot of OT so it balances out and theres always OT, but after the contract is up we'll definitely be the highest paid. Honestly i really dont have any issues, i just go to work do my job and come home. As for the contract you can blame the baby boomers that retired n left us with this horrible contract until 2023.
Pros
The potiential for advancement
Cons
Union Contract

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.
