Northern Tier Energy Reviews
Pros – Benefits package is amazing, 9% match to 401k, pension and profit sharing. The union is strong and does a good job supporting the employees.
Cons – Unfortunately 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 Management – Consider 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
Pros – The 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.
Cons – This 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
Pros – good health Benefits, vacation pay
Cons – they say you get monthly bonus but they make it hard to get it, and pay raises only once a year, pay not on par with other jobs
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
