for the most part it has been good over all .work by myself and take care of my area easy enough.

Pipeline Operator (Current Employee)
San Antonio, TX (US)

I have been working at Plains All American Pipeline full-time for more than 10 years

Proswork by myself and if I need help with a problem help is a phone call away.

Conspay is not up to industry standards. yearly pay raises are very small. you are expected to be on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week with 0 compensation . and if you do venture out one hour past your area and get a call out its not a fun explanation to give your supervisor.

managements weekend usually starts at noon on Friday and if you need help on a big problem good luck. and if you do get a hold of a supervisor there not to pleasant to speak to on the phone,

Advice to Senior Managementgive field personel a decent raise and compensation for being on call 24 -7. ease up on all the nepitism

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

This was the best internship ever

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I worked at Plains All American Pipeline as an intern for less than a year

ProsOpportunity to learn a great deal
Ability to choose your own hours
No micromanagement
Wonderful company culture, the employees are like a big family
The company is expanding very quickly- it has doubled in size just since I interned there!

ConsI can't think of any. Plains treats its employees very well, and management does the same. Many companies would benefit from emulating their 'take care of your employees, and they'll take care of you' philosophy.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on growing!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

ProsThe best reasons to work at Plains All American Pipeline are the people, work/life balance and that the midstream oil business will remain favorable even in an uncertain economic environment.

District Manager lied about compensation; new management will not hold up the bargain.

Oil Driver (Current Employee)
Enid, OK (US)

I have been working at Plains All American Pipeline full-time for less than a year

ProsAbove-average benefits. Less-than-average micromanagement. Some PPE reimbursed.

ConsLike others said, lower pay than the competition. The benefits are good but you cannot eat them! Keeping the job here until I find an hourly replacement. The local competition pays 30% more. The company is buying up lots of capital assets but they are CUTTING driver income! Perhaps they think training expenses and lost productivity are preferable to keeping good drivers...

Advice to Senior ManagementThey're not listening, so what is the point? This is NOT a good attitude to ignore in your employees driving 80,000 pounds on public roads...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
