    I worked at Knife River full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people I worked with were generally great to be around. The lab was clean and well-maintained. Safety was of the highest priority.

    Cons

    The hours were long. I worked 10-hour days, and was still often the first one to leave for the day.

    I worked at Knife River

    Pros

    Fun place to work with pretty good pay especially if able to work on overtime. Good benefits and a big company to work for.

    Cons

    Work is dependent upon the construction economy and therefore unstable and job security can be at risk when business is slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Notify and educate employees about oportunities for professional development and possibilities with moving up in the company and promotions/ work expectations

    I worked at Knife River

    Pros

    If you want to make money as a hourly employee, this is a great company. The pay scale is very bottom heavy. It takes a few promotions to make as much as you would as an hourly employee. If you work hard and are competant, there will be opportunity for you to advance. The company is increasingly concerned about safety which is a good thing.

    Cons

    like many other companies in the industry, somehow a few idiots have managed to be promoted to a point of incompetency. Summers will be very long hours and little chance of getting time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Affirm the blue collar guys often. If they feel appreciated, they will work harder.
