In Our Teams

We search our local workforce and other communities to find top talent to drive excellence in field operations and throughout the company.

We also support our nation's military. Valero contracts with the Department of Defense and provides resources and career support for military veterans.

Moving Forward Together

Now more than ever, Valero recognizes the value and benefits of a diverse workforce and the impact that comes from truly inclusive teams. It is more than doing the right thing. We embrace the opportunity to educate ourselves in ways that correct bias and inequality where it exists, and ensure that we lead, cultivate and develop talent inclusively.
