There are many reasons to consider working at Westlake Chemical. To name a few:



More than 30 years ago, the words of Westlake founder T.T. Chao - now displayed on a plaque at every Westlake facility - established the company's culture of safety. He said, "We have put safety first, and it will remain our number one priority. No job can be so important or urgent that people cannot take time to work safely. Life it precious and irreplaceable." We take these words to heart everyday and apply a disciplined approach to keeping our employees and communities safe. Click here to read more about Westlake's Commitment to Safety.


"If you are a person... who wants to be a positive force for change and develop professionally in the process, Westlake offers a lot of opportunities for skill set expansion, creative problem-solving and stepping outside your comfort zone."

"Westlake is a lean organization that offers employees the chance to wear many different hats, giving employees the opportunity to expand their skill set and knowledge. If you are a self-motivated person then this is the right place for you."
