Some very easy jobs, good machines, some very hard jobs with terrible machines.

Machine Operator (Current Employee)
International Falls, MN

I have been working at Boise Cascade full-time for more than 10 years

ProsPay, Union, Shift work with a week off every month, pretty much all the overtime you want. Some days are very easy and boring if machines are running good. That is when they are making money, right?

ConsPaper industry is very competitive and management has just cut 300 jobs and the future doesn't look very bright for the 600 that are left. Mill is on Canadian Border, so if you love -40 degree winter days, 8 month winters and a 3 hour drive to get to a major city, this is the right place for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementMiddle managers are pretty decent, considering all the pressure that is coming from upper management and the almighty stockholders. Free trade act kind of screwed us all.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Union and management at odds made for a bad environment. Promotions based on who you know.
