Career options
We are enjoying strong growth and we are proactive about developing leaders. Once you have proven yourself in this role, you might move up in the maintenance organization or into other areas. If you are open to relocation, you might pursue opportunities at other Par Pacific locations.

Great time to join us
Par Pacific has an active, opportunistic growth strategy. We have completed three significant acquisitions since 2013. 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.

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.

Excellent compensation

With 100 jobs a week, you'll need exceptional organizational skills, the ability to manage multiple activities and the flexibility to manage shifting priorities. If you're used to an environment focusing on months-long projects, this may be a challenging adjustment for you.
