    I worked at Boise full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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 have been working at Boise full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good company, focused on growth, values and safety. Very decentralized. Consistent work but yet varies daily. Fun atmosphere, often made to feel more like family than an employee.

    Cons

    Very demanding, health insurance is very high and don't like they make you meet certain (sometimes unobtainable) standards. High amount of favoritism and nepotism

    Advice to Management

    Need to recommend higher rates of pay & it would be nice to hear positive feedback vs. negative

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

    Pros

    I am knowledgeable of the plant in All areas. I enjoyed the times I was there. I want to be apart of a successful team

    Cons

    Getting upper management to communicate on issues and concerns that needed attention.

    Advice to Management

    I have then depted information that improved the quality and production. Mechanical issues Safety Concerns also cut costs. Also help with better communications also training, in house and new hires. Providing positive atmosphere.

    I have been working at Boise full-time

    Pros

    Great company with outstanding emphasis on safety

    Cons

    Corporate should be more thoughtful of the worker bee that is making them rich. They treat us well as employees but that doesn't pay the bills. Mill work should still be a job that supports families not just another poverty level job..

    Advice to Management

    Wages should actually match cost of living when rent for a two bedroom apt is 1800 a month even $20 an hour is not a living wage

    I worked at Boise full-time

    Pros

    The work was easy, trivial even. Most people don't have to do any work at all, from what I saw.

    Cons

    The work was boring. Incredibly. Red tape everywhere. The normal response to the suggestion of making any change was to point to the red tape and use that as excuse not to do anything. Most employees expect to do exactly the same thing today that they did yesterday and will fight with office politics to make sure that happens.

    Advice to Management

    Shut it down. Seriously. You're just going to lose money trying to keep this company alive. You got the plants you wanted, cut out the rest and move on.
