Pros

Great location, if you love small towns. Close to National Parks, not too far from the coast (3 hrs or so) and close to skiing. Decent pay for what you're doing, management is fair and easy to approach.

Cons

Tough work, hot in the summer, cold in the winter. Hard to get a day off. People you work with are crude. About 60% mexican nationals work there, can be a downside if you're not mexican or enjoy being talked about it spanish. Don't be late either, a bell goes off when your shift starts and you'd better be there or you'll get written up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more flexible with time off

    I worked at Sierra Pacific Industries full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of work when the demand is high, there is demand out there however the competition is intense. The atmosphere can be upbeat at times, generally during the holidays.

    Cons

    Lack of work during economic downturn. This happens frequently in the wood products industry, yearly I would say. We see this every year, perhaps if we became pro active when tough times come around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep people informed and do not sugar coat the bad news

    I worked at Sierra Pacific Industries full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company was founded with great principles and values. They are dedicated to keep a strong presence in the wood products industry. I would recommend Sierra Pacific based on these pros.

    Cons

    Even with my commitment to (excessive) 12-14 hour days, it was difficult to advance both professionally and financially. My base pay didn't change for 12 years. I would not recommend Sierra Pacific based on these cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget it is individual people that make an organization.
