    Rotating Shift work required

    Union Member (Current Employee) Saint Paul Park, MN

    ProsBenefits package is amazing, 9% match to 401k, pension and profit sharing. The union is strong and does a good job supporting the employees.

    ConsUnfortunately almost all of the union jobs are required to work shift work, so unless you're okay flipping rapidly between night and day you should work somewhere else. Quite a bit of tension between the Union and the Company, there was a strike in 2006.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider the straight shifts that have been suggested time and time again, so people can work straight nights or straight days and not have the hectic switching which is physically and emotionally stressful.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Northern Tier Energy, a company in transition

    Engineer (Former Employee) Saint Paul Park, MN

    ProsThe pay was good, fellow employees were super. The refinery has a unique niche because of its location relative to North Dakota fracking and Canadian Tar sands crude which should almost gaurantee profitability in the next few years.

    ConsThis firm is a start up that bought an existing refinery. There are more than a few teething problems and some members of management have oversized egos. This has a detrimental affect on overall work enviornment.

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

    It has highs and lows, its great if you have a good supervisor, but if not you better be very careful

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou gain relationships with people within the community, the work atmosphere can be very fun

    ConsThere are alot of supervisors who treat employees like they are not allowed to have a life outside of the company.
