Decent pay and great benefits
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – January 24, 2018
Western Refining is a great company. The benefits are some of the best you'll find. Pay is good for most job positions. There is room for advancement if you have a degree.
I would recommend working for this company if you do not work in the retail department of the company. Meaning if you do any work directly for the various convenient stores. For example, store manager and/or associate, I.T., and maintenance technician. If you find work in any other department you'll be much happier. People who get hired for the positions mentioned above tend to get stuck there. Though the pay can be good, make no mistake that those positions are the bottom of the barrel.
As far as being a maintenance tech you can expect being on call after hours, long hours, little to no training and a paycheck that does reflect all the extra overtime you put in. I do not recommend working as a maintenance tech unless you have a plan to transfer to another department.
Company vehicle, decent pay, great benefits
being on call, long hours, no training, poor supervision
