Pipeline Operator (Current Employee) – Geary, OK – October 8, 2018
Some of the lower management are good people but you get passed that and the management has no spine what so ever. The culture is cut throat and scare tactics. If you don't work in the Tulsa main office you are just a number. The pay and benefits are ok, but if you have a decent job already I would not recommend quitting it to come to work here. I will be leaving just as soon as I find a new job!
Pay and Benefits are decent.
Poor management, they do not care about the employees at all.
Cook/Prep (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – August 23, 2018
OneOk is a good place to work. Not too stressful and they make it fun. Makes the time go by so fast. You prep the food for all the suites and decks even for the baseball players and coaches. It's a really good environment.
They cook for you, your schedule is always posted ahead of time
Over 10 years with the company and it's ever changing
Senior Gas Controller (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – August 16, 2018
Market based pay..... get used to that term with ONEOK. We usually seem to be not quite at the bottom of the market but no where near the middle. My dept doesn't get too many chances for advancement but with our upper managment I don't see why you would want to.
There is a lot of Nepotism going on at corporate right now. That used to be a big NO NO but for some reason they are letting it happen again.
Some of our upper management is clueless when it goes on to the day to day operation of what you actually do. But, will be quick to remind you how to do your job when they've never been in your shoes. Most meetings I attend we always sit down with people that believe they are the smartest in the room and should be treated as such.
Safety is only a word. They sing it real loud but when you have walk on hire events up North (BAKKEN) don't expect to get the sharpest tools in the shed.
My advice is for someone with no experience to come in and learn the industry from us. Get all your certifications and training on industry standards and then bounce for more money. Most young in's do and seem to get pretty good raises from competitors.
We've got all the regular industry standard benefits. 6% match 401, health, dental, profit sharing. If you are being recruited don't let the recruiter fool you into any type of "bonus" structure. Our bonuses are a joke compared to the competition.
Construction Coordinator (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – July 6, 2018
Woked at ONEOK for 4 years. I loved the culture and people I worked with. I was relocated for a couple years and ONEOK allowed me to travel home on the scheduled weekends with my son. I also feel ONEOK (within my group anyways) appreciated its employees. Hard work did not go unnoticed and I was monetarily rewarded every year. I would recommend working for ONEOK to anyone.
Great place out of college, will need to move for advance
Accountant (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – July 1, 2018
Great place to start a career but not a good place to advance. No solid reasoning is given for timing or achievements needed to move up in the company. Was told only lateral moves were encouraged and not to apply for positions higher than my own.
Storage Operator (Former Employee) – Morris, IL – June 22, 2018
Do not repeat Do not work or apply at the Morris IL. location. Management at this location and Oneok area managers are very one sided.when it comes to employees.there The job consisted of rotating shifts which were good for the work life balance if you liked the 12 hour shift schedule, pay was decent, benefits and 401K were good Just stay away from the Morris IL location
Instrumentation, Electrical & Controls Supervisor (Former Employee) – Channahon, IL – April 30, 2018
Oneok is a great company with multiple areas where a person can learn and advance. Management leaves a lot to be desired as it tends to be the "good old boy" type of management with managers' friends receiving preferential treatment and others considered to be outsiders.
Instrument Technician (Current Employee) – Mont Belvieu, TX – February 28, 2018
the people could not do anything if people from out of state didn't tell them how to do it. Then when you get sick of their ways they through you under the bus every chance they get. The southern hospitality is just a act so they can stab you in the back when you turn around.
Pipeline, compressor station operator (Former Employee) – Williston, ND – February 1, 2018
A good job, nothing very strenuous. Must be willing to get down and dirty sometimes. A good environment of safety. Fair compensation package. Some weeks employees are on call 24 hours a day, and must be willing to go out into the field under any conditions.
It’s a challenging job mentally and physically. We have a variety of different mechanical and operational equipment which contributes to making this job a challenge since we aren’t standardized. We spend a lot of time working in harsh weather environments and through the overnight hours to keep equipment running and gas moving.
