Life at Hess


The compensation package at Hess is very competitive.

Base salary is often the largest and most visible part of your compensation. But you get much more for working at Hess. We recognize our best performers and provide them with financial rewards that match their contributions to the company over time.

We carefully consider performance when determining who will receive base salary increases and the size of those increases. We have systems that ensure we are internally fair and externally very competitive.

Your pay can be enhanced by an annual bonus, which is based on how you as an individual, your business unit, and the company perform. Our bonus plans link you to what's most important to the business.

What you do every day makes a difference... and when the company succeeds, you can share in that success.


We provide a range of high quality financial and health benefits so employees and their families can enjoy a high quality of life.

They take good care of the necessities and provide meaningful extras. We offer medical, dental, life insurance, pension, savings and other programs though the details vary based on job and location.

The American Heart Association recognizes our wellness program for promoting fitness, nutrition and a health-focused workplace culture. Very few companies in the oil and gas industry have earned this distinction.

We regularly evaluate our offerings to ensure that they are performing effectively and providing employees what they need.

Learning and Development

We invest in our employees' professional development and provide them with challenging and rewarding opportunities for career growth.

At Hess, we want you to realize your full potential as you make valuable contributions to the company's success. We are committed to providing every employee with opportunities, tools and resources to perform at a high level and help us achieve our goals. Among those is the Hess Learning Center for all employees and formal development programs in many areas.

The more experience, knowledge and skills you have, the better equipped you are to make a difference. We work with you to reach your full potential, achieve career success and maximize your earning power.

Many people feel fulfilled by working deep in an area of expertise. But there are also opportunities to work across business units. Sometimes development can cross from function to business unit and vice-versa. You might consider taking a role in another area to broaden your experience and skills. And we support that aspiration.

At Hess we're committed to providing employees with what they need to be productive, satisfied and successful at work. We recognize that an important factor in whether you join or stay with our company is the environment in which you work.
