Customer Service (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – November 13, 2018
At this job you would have to be on your feet all day, no breaks, just restroom breaks. Ive learned how to deal with customers, how to assist in a fast paced way. Our manager was an awesome person, would worry and help us as much as possible. Our environment was different everyday due to new customers or frequent customers coming in. The hardest part would be the stealing and stocking heavy supplies, other then that i loved the experience and meeting new people.
Pipefitter & Supervisor (Former Employee) – Texas City, TX – November 9, 2018
Typical day at work was getting work orders, and going out and completing the work orders. As a supervisor I oversaw a crew of 12-15 people. I was in charge of electricians, pipe fitters, carpenters and contractors. I did computer based training classes. I did reports on computers and attended daily meetings. After 35 years there, I learned quite a lot. That is the reason they put me into a supervisory position.
The hardest part of the job was getting all the work completed by the end of the work day.
The most enjoyable part of the job was completing all work orders on time and in a safe manner. I also enjoyed working with many of the employees and established great friendships over the years.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX 78209 – October 30, 2018
Working at Valero varies from area to area. Ive worked at locations near schools, and locations near bars. Each very different in what is being asked of you as a worker. In one store, you may have enjoyable customers whom you may develop healthy relationships with. In another store you may encounter belligerent customers on substances, and may have to actively keep them from the store or from harming customers. The Benefits are incredible though. You are able to set up a 401k and there is room for advancement. It may take some time, but you are able to headway in this company.

You learn so much but at the same time are able to apply what you already know to situations. It is a small office, so you are able to interact with everyone in the office, in which, you can learn from all of them, and everything and variety they have to offer.
