I worked at Boise full-time (More than 10 years)
Great people that work safely and effectively to ensure our customers received a quality product. The pay and benefits are great and management continually looks for ways to improve efficiency and reduce waste. There is still much of a family atmosphere at a lot of it's locations and I hope that continues in the future.
If your afraid to work hard and do odd shifts it may not be the right fit for you.
Advice to Management
Help employees and supervisors continue to grow and learn new things. Focus on what an employee contributes and less on politics.
I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Boise.
First was a talk at the career fair with two full time engineers, a mechanical and chemical engineer. I asked them some question about the process there jobs and then just small talk. A couple weeks later I was emailed about a on-site tour and was given a date time and schedule. The on-site was a hour and a half panel interview followed by an informal interview lunch and one last interview with the plant manager. Following the interview was an hour and a half long plant tour. In all I was on site from 9am to 3:30pm. This was the last step in the interview process.
Reasons for Declining
I did not fit in at all with the plant atmosphere. Overall they interviewers were unprofessional during the process even to the point of being straight up rude.
