Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Deer Park, TXSeptember 28, 2018
When I worked there they did not take care of their employees much less know who most of them were. Guys complained of not receiving paychecks, there was no safety culture, and the company was bought and sold 3 times in two years each resulting in new management.
Pros
None

Just a job
Vacuum Truck Operator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXSeptember 2, 2018
If you are looking for temporary position then you will enjoy. No benefits or health care. Contract jobs at best. Management was decent for the most part. Just their supervisors in the office did not have a clue.

Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) –  Geismar, LAJune 19, 2018
This was a very fast paced work environment. My supervisor was very helpful and supportive. The corporate office was very difficult to work with, always pushing employees to do more for less. This was the most stressful company I have ever worked with.
Pros
Local staff was supportive
Cons
Very demanding and stressful

Great place to work
Driver Operator (Current Employee) –  Mobile, ALJune 2, 2018
Enter into the chemical refining or power plants to a safey briefing make sure everyone aware of all the hazards. Gather all needed equipment needed to preform the job safely. The hardest part of the job is working on the heat also the most exciting part of the job is you get to travel all over North America for free and see the world,
Pros
Travel for free meet different people of all races
Cons
Being away from your family

USES was a pleasure to work for before the transition from private owners to a investment group. After the transition Safety Managers were not a profitable revenue source.

Not what you expect.
Accounting (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 17, 2018
There are too many games played! The company does not care about employees. Employees are treated like caged hamsters running on a wheel. Employees are paid well but, very unhappy and live in fear for their jobs. Corporate office higher-ups play many games with all employees. The Controller and CFO lead the way. They care nothing for their employees and only communicate with their specific few that they have chosen. Training is not an option and you are made to feel stupid when you do not understand or ask any questions. The controller and CFO seem compete for the chance to humiliate an employee esp. new employees. The controller is openly rude, mean, and nasty to employees. The CFO embraces this behavior and the CEO does not get involved. All very sad because this company could be great.
Pros
Pay and office is nice.
Cons
There are zero management reviews.The Controller runs the company.

Pros
Mileage was paid
Cons
Stressful considering the refineries and supporting sites were dangerous

Safety (Former Employee) –  Geismar, LAJanuary 31, 2018
You never know when or where you are going to work. They are constantly cutting back and closed their office in Geismar. They merged with K2 and have since reduced the work force of USES. Most employees are from K2 now. They kept K2 employees and gave the USES employees the boot.

uses was a good company to work for.
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  Port Arthur, TXOctober 30, 2017
it has good and bad days like everywhere else .i love working as a liquid vac operator / overall equipment operator. i have learned to be patient.some management within the company has a good vission for company , employees and customer.but some need to use diplomacy when they are dealing with employee & customer and not abuse the position that was intrusted to them, to uphold with
integrity. also to know there employees by strengthen there weaknesses and build them to become a ideal and effective employee for the company. we have had good safety values in safety meetings . but carring it out in the field you are being pushed to do the job by any means to get it done. the hardest part of the job is working with equipment that has no a/c in temperatures of 98 degrees and above to work in everyday.the most enjoyable part of the job is at the end of the day is the customer is satisfied with the completion of all tasks which was given that day.
