Fun for interns.,

Week long training about the refinery was fun. Couldn't learn much about the company as an intern. Outside the city so long commute, plenty of time for settling in.

Great working in CPCL

I have learned so many things in this company professionally. It has been a great time working with CPCL. Good work place culture has been maintained. The hardest part is, there are so many long working hours. The most enjoyable part is the company provides lunches, team outings, arranging vacations for the employees etc.

Pros

Free lunches

Cons

Long hours

More technical

The job I used to work require great practice to fulfill the clients requirement but it took less than a week to attain that perfection and the ergonomics at work, people who have guided me taught everything they have learned in their experience without any partiality. When I landed my foot in chennai petroleum for the position I was held, i guess I am the luckiest one. The toughest part of the work is to wake up soon to get to work and to go home late in the evening.

Pros

Multi Lingual

Cons

Long hours

Productive and fun workplace

the most important thing we can learn is the people management. you will have to manage people from diverse mindset and most of them envious of your career growth. you will learn to manage and get things done from the same set of people. thats a great achievement

Productive workplace

Freedom to work and opportunity for making new things. This job is risky, some who have weathered the storm have seen success but at the cost of monotony, and never knowing what will happen the next quarter.
