    I worked at Knife River full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    great company with great people. We had a shared goal to make it a success in a new operation. Some of the best people I've ever worked with. Very good benefits. Enjoyed my time there. Have man friends from the experience.

    Cons

    Pretty hard to have a work life balance. Work is demanding of your time due to the short working season.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on going strong, Thanks for being aware of the needs of the people, and doing what you can for them.

    I worked at Knife River

    Pros

    If you want to make money as a hourly employee, this is a great company. The pay scale is very bottom heavy. It takes a few promotions to make as much as you would as an hourly employee. If you work hard and are competant, there will be opportunity for you to advance. The company is increasingly concerned about safety which is a good thing.

    Cons

    like many other companies in the industry, somehow a few idiots have managed to be promoted to a point of incompetency. Summers will be very long hours and little chance of getting time off.

    Advice to Management

    Affirm the blue collar guys often. If they feel appreciated, they will work harder.
