    I worked at Boise Cascade full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Offer good benefits, Safe, Clean, Enviroment, training, cross-training, promotes from within, vacation package, open door policy, personally I love it. Those are just my feelings. There is a lot to be learned, room for positive creativity. Great opportunities for Advancement regardless of your nationality.

    Cons

    Personally I don't feel their are any. The schedule may not be what some others may prefer. Staffing issues creating overtime is an issue. Employee recognition Hispanics not receiving the proper help on getting their papers legally. Also helping make sure Hispanics understand the benefits and other opportunities so they don't miss out on anything that may help them or their families.

    Advice to Management

    Strong communication and support of their team. Expressing the importance of treating all Equally, and providing opportunities to everyone regardless of race, gender, or color.

    Pros

    Working at Boise Cascade/OfficeMax was a positive experience. They care for their employees. They made coming to work fun. There were opportunities to cross train and grow. I actually did not cringe when Monday came around because I liked working there. All my co-workers were like a second family. I truly miss working there, but will always remember it fondly.

    Cons

    It could be slow climbing the ladder there, but they still gave you the opportunity to learn other positions so when the time was right you could move up.

    Advice to Management

    I would just say to continue to do the great work that they have been doing all these years. I had quite a few managers there and loved them all.
