Share post:

BP Whiting Refinery is seeking to hire 32 full-time entry-level operators for well-paying union jobs with an hourly rate starting at $34.98. 

Although a bachelor’s degree is preferred, a high school diploma is required, and candidates with experience in a refinery, power plant or chemical plant are preferred. The refinery is planning to hire two classes, starting in the summer and fall.

Successful candidates can earn six-figure salaries annually after completing required training and certifications, with a top hourly rate of pay exceeding $50 an hour. The Whiting Refinery also offers a fully funded pension plan, industry-leading healthcare, and other benefits on top of the hourly rate and a 401(k) match.

Workers at the refinery will be responsible for minor maintenance, taking equipment out of service, restoring it to operation, troubleshooting, logging activities, and reading levels, pressures, and temperatures. They will work outside in all weather conditions in rotating 12-hour shifts that include nights, weekends, and holidays.

The BP Whiting Refinery is the largest refinery in the Midwest, with the capability of processing over 440,000 barrels of crude oil daily. The refinery produces enough gasoline to fuel 7 million vehicles each day, and 7% of the asphalt in the United States. The refinery also supplies jet fuel to the O’Hare and Midway airports in Chicago. Hourly workers are members of United Steelworkers Local 7-1.

BP is accepting applications through April 10. Candidates with a high school diploma and an interest in refining, power or chemical plants should apply at for a chance to secure a promising and lucrative career.
