    Very stable company with great benefits. Company cares very well about employee safety. Salary is very good and is usually above average for entry levels. Very close community, senior employees always ready to help newer ones who may not be up to speed.


    For certain engineering disciplines, it might be a little restricted.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, especially your concern about employee safety.
