Pros – The company finds work for you if they can even if the season is over. Excellent team. They contribute greatly to the community too
Cons – Long hours but worth it
Advice to Senior Management – None, excellent.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Sierra Pacific Industries full-time for more than a year
Pros – On the good days it was great. Coworkers would treat me nice. Working outside was amazing.
Cons – Boss was a nut. She would send an email out riddled with typos and harras you for not capitalizing the d in December. Cowers were horrible one day tollerable the next. If one expressed an idea of any sort one would be told that they are "changing everything" and that they need to know their place.
Advice to Senior Management – Be more involved in the work that is going on. The word team needs to be taken more seriously.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Sierra Pacific Industries
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 Senior Management – Be more flexible with time off

I worked at Sierra Pacific Industries full-time for 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 Senior Management – Keep people informed and do not sugar coat the bad news
