    Default Shell Norco Refinery

    I'm interested in a job at the Shell Norco Refinery as an Emergency Response Technician. I was wondering if anyone has any knowledge of what the job entails and/or what its like to work there. Specifically, I'm wondering about what a normal day would involve, work schedule, and pay. Any info and assistance is greatly appreciated!

    Since hopefully they do not have a lot of fires , sounds like a lot of safety work, checking hurt people, and responding to leaks/spills
