Pros

Fun place to work with pretty good pay especially if able to work on overtime. Good benefits and a big company to work for.

Cons

Work is dependent upon the construction economy and therefore unstable and job security can be at risk when business is slow.

Advice to Management

Notify and educate employees about oportunities for professional development and possibilities with moving up in the company and promotions/ work expectations

    I worked at Knife River part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is almost as good as if you are from Minnesota

    Cons

    If you work on a certain crew out of Williston and your not from Minnesota you get treated like crap and they will do everything they can to make and employee feel like crap till that person quits there are to many family members and girl friends of bosses that make working there a pain in the butt but some bosses worked with the big guy in Minnesota so whatever you have to say is a lie because friends come first to management and business is 2nd loose the discrimination

    Advice to Management

    Do your job if your buddy from Minnesota is not doing his then get rid of him/them and get people in those positions that are capable of doing they're job instead of texting the wife all day and there bosses should not have they're girlfriend on the same crew
