As a nimble, entrepreneurial organization, we actively pursue new opportunities in response to local market demands and changing external environments.


The Role

To summarize this role, you will serve as the eyes and ears of this facility. You will report incidents, keep an eye out for any suspicious activities and ensure safety is always a top priority. You will always need to be aware of your surroundings, including the weather and atmospheric conditions (it can get very windy, for example), so you can ensure successful and safe operations.


The Opportunity 


Working here is different: Because Par is a smaller company, employees have the opportunity to make a greater impact on the business and to influence decisions. People truly have amazing careers at Par because they are exposed to all areas of the company and are connected to many of the industry experts.

Here you are extraordinary: There is nothing ordinary about Par Pacific people. If you are at Par, you are a driven, creative-thinking, hardworking, entrepreneur-minded professional that loves to win. If that describes you, you will fit right in!


Opportunistic growth strategy: We look for operations with strong fundamentals and great employees who can move a business forward. Our management team has deep experience in the energy industry, as well as in leading mergers, acquisitions and integrations of newly acquired companies.

Excellent compensation: In addition to a competitive wage and overtime opportunity, we offer comprehensive benefits that include medical and dental insurance; life and AD&D insurance; retirement savings plans; employee assistance programs; and more.

Location, location, location 

Because Par Pacific is located in some of the most beautiful places throughout the country, our employees get to make these places their home and enrich their lives. You will work in Newcastle, the county seat of Weston County, which offers the neighborly culture you would expect in a small town.
