One employee shared her experience working at Targa resources, "Employees are inexperienced, yet know everything. Not looking for new staff opinions or changes and nobody could be trusted. Worse than a bunch of high schoolers. Waste of time. Look elsewhere for a fulfilling career."
Lead Safety Coordinator (Former Employee) says"Employees are inexperienced, yet know everything. Not looking for new staff opinions or changes and nobody could be trusted. Worse than a bunch of high schoolers. Waste of time. Look elsewhere for a fulfilling career."
Technician (Current Employee) says"The general work environment is pretty good but you can expect very high work loads and long hours with a below average pay system."
Transportation Logistics Analyst (Former Employee) says"Old school environment. No work from home. No 9/80 schedule. No consistent communication. No integrity within management. They say what you want to hear but don’t fix anything. Favoritism is rampant. Promotions given to least qualified instead of who deserves them. Good employees leave monthly. I will NEVER regret leaving at all!Paycheck to pay billsAll of the above."
Instrumentation Technician (Current Employee) says"Poor direction. Poor management. Left floundering. NO COMMUNICATION between supervisors and worker bees. Struggle for control by supervisors. Making changes to equipment on the fly without proper engineering or planning or MOC's. Very cliquish. No information sharing so that all crafts/trades can grow together and ALL be informed. Choice of equipment and parts on the cheap end of the scale. Constantly repairing or replacing low end parts. No work orders. Just suppose to know what to do. A Harbor Freight Built Company to make a quick profit and doesn't seem to care what equipment they use so long as its cheap. HR is practically unavailable. PayLeft in the dark like a mushroom, supervisors fearful you may be smarter then they are and take their jobs, so they isolate by no information sharing."
Sr. Safety Specialist (Current Employee) says"Nothing but politics. If you arent in the clique, you wont be welcomed. HR is a joke. People at this company will lie about you and the regional manager will ask you to perform illegal stuff. Not worth the risk."
Liquefied Petroleum Gas Transport Driver (Current Employee) says"I've been working for this company through 3 name changes and for 23 years. It's in worst shape today than ever before.

Process Plant Supervisor (Current Employee) says"Maintain daily operations of a natural gas plant Organize maintenance, I&E, and operation employee schedule Review daily operation morning report Organize PM for compressors, pumps, and liquid production control residue and y-grade spec Perform LOTO, crane lift permit, JSA, work permits Hardest part of the job is dealing with management cutting corners in safety. Working with coworker is the most enjoyable part I have a top rated safety performancebuilding safety culturedealing with people that do not know what there talking about."
Operator Technician (Former Employee) says"Nice new plant with normal plant issues. Has a few problems with pressure and temperature drops. Which causes issues with the flow and proper valve operations. In need of more experienced personal. Slow down the training process of inexperienced personal. Plant has some good people to work with. In need of better communication skills and team work."
Project Engineer/Project Manager (Former Employee) says"I worked for Targa Midstream for 3+ years as a project engineer. In that time frame, Targa has consistently not treated safety and environmental concerns correctly. Additionally, their method of upper manager has more to do with who you know, not what you know. It became a real issue when design codes are not followed and events occurs.company trucklack of skilled employees in proper management"
Lab Technician (Former Employee) says"Typical work day included pulling fuel samples from pipelines, trucks and railcars and reporting findings. Learned how to pull, calibrate, read and report sample findings The direct supervisor treated employees unfairly and was extremely disrespectful. There isn't a specific training program, it's learn as you go or you don't learn and be terminated. The hardest part of the job is finding someone willing to train properly The most enjoyable part of the job was realizing how to do my job on my own and performing the job right.Enjoyed my jobSupervisor disrespectful and no proper training"
Office Assistant (Current Employee) says"I work in Tacoma and management is terrible. Really they have no idea what's going on and any time you ask for info you get a blank stare. You get micromanaged. My coworker's are spacey and crazy and I don't know how they have a job?? They make me want to cry on the regular. I am bored most of the day cause there is nothing going on. Just kinda rotting away honestly. Maybe the jobs are way better in Texas?flexible hours, 401kpeople are annoying"
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) says"The company had good insurance and benefits. As a whole was good comapny. Unfortunately the plant I worked at had issues.Management had unfair habits.Hardest part of the job - disrespectful co workers.I enjoyed the salary compensation & benefits."
Anonymous (Former Employee) says"Workplace culture was very conservative. Many departments seemed staffed very leanly. Compensation was good/market and benefits seem on par with the rest of the industry."
Operator (Former Employee) says"I worked there and management talks bad about you if your not on there side. No room to grow within company. This terminal is almost a fly by night operation. The office and operators are on different levels and the right doesn't know what the left is doing. The terminal manager is lacking in leadership or better yet very unprofessional and micro manages. You wonder why people leave because it feels more like a babysitters club. The best part of the job was telling other co workers I'm going to get experience and move on from this place.It was a jobOnly management got shares operators got nothing but a 401k"
IT Deskside Support (Former Employee) says"A very fast-paced environment with things changing every day. Very poor management, unfortunately. The manager micromanaged everyone and had a history of not letting any of his employees excel within the company. He created a very toxic and hostile environment by never being on our side when issues arose."
Mechanic I (Current Employee) says"I love what i do here but alot of judgements calls from some of the management and the leaders in the facility are very questionable. In my opinion there alot of people in positions that dont have the experience to have to be there and also for all the work we put in at this plant they under appreciate it and the pay scale is lowthe schedule we havelow pay"
Analyst (Current Employee) says"Overall Targa is a good company to work for. I have been fortunate to see many years here but when it comes to advancement among its employees, you have to be in good with upper management. Hard work does not play a vital role in promotion but rather who you know to say the least.StabilitySlow to promote"
Office Administrator (Former Employee) says"The management is very poor. Condisending and talk down to employees on a regular basis. Other locations may have been different. The work itself was not difficult."
Process Technician II (Current Employee) says"Good place to start and get experience. The compensation package is lacking."
Lead Analyst (Current Employee) says"The company changed from all contractors to employees last year. they do not know how to treat an actual employee. It all depends on your manager whether you can work from home for doctor appointments or you need to be home for a plumber or something."
