I worked at Columbia Falls Aluminum Company (More than 8 years)
Easy to understand where you stood; fast paced commodity based industry.
Great staff (top to bottom)
Beautiful place to live and work; great community.
Business model was not sustainable in the long term. High cost of electricity placed constant pressure on revenue. Employees did a great job of continually improving the facility, but eventually could not over come escalating outside costs.
Advice to Management
Remain open and honest. Difficult times requires the entire staff to stay together.
