    Seniority rules
    This place is a decent way to make a average living if you want


    Micromanaged at every corner and getting time off is a serious pain.

    The hiring and review process, seems to be extensive. They have several locations in the area where an individual can tae the assessment to see if they qualify and yet, they make you drive all the way toThief River Falls Airport and actually go in to Northland Community College there. Why? There is one in GFK. I had to turn them down for the job, they told me after I put it in all my work and mileage that if hired I will be the low-person on the totem-pole and will have to take very odd shifts and that if I wanted to go on vacation the person with the most seniority would get it that's crazy. I decided to rethink my move!

    Reasons for Declining

    The job seemed to have a lot of inconveniences such as: vacation (seniority), odd hours, etc.
