21 Staffing Agencies To Help You Finally Get A Job In The Houston Chemical Plants

One alternative to a relative getting you in the door is working with a staffing agency that specializes in chemical plant and refinery jobs.
Although I’m currently working in healthcare I did spend 3 years working in the chemical plants in the past. And I got there by using a staffing agency (and charm).

Where I’m from (the Dirty Bay aka Baytown) getting a job in a chemical plant is like making the NBA, because these jobs pay good money…
They also demand lots of your time on weekends and overnights, but again they do pay good money.
Knowing someone on the inside is the easiest way to secure one of these competitive jobs, however, if you do not have a relative working there, these staffing agencies are the best alternative.
In addition to connecting with these staffing agencies, you should also consider attending a school like Lee College, San Jac or College of the Mainland for a Certification called Process Technology. This 1 certification is starting to become a requirement for the Process Operator jobs everyone is searching for.
Do those two things above and it will put you in a great position to give you and your family a very comfortable lifestyle.
