Chemical Operator (Former Employee) – Genoa, NE 68640 – March 19, 2018
I would not recommend working at Preferred Sands. The people that work in the Resin plant are almost all discriminatory to new employees. The treat people unfairly based on race and age. The hardest part of the job was dealing with all the bigotry from the people who already work there. Then you have to deal with the long hours and awful schedule. 12 hour shifts for everyone who doesn't work in the office and the schedule was from 6 to 6, either nights or days. Also, there is so much dust and sand in the Resin plant that it should be considered a health hazard. The only positive thing I would say about Preferred Sands is the health benefits. Other than that, that place is garbage.

Some people make Preferred there landing point for their careers and others start out there, gain experience, and move on. All are great options when working at preferred.
If you do want to work at preferred be prepared for very manual process and things working at a fast pace. You may even have to work long hours if you're involved in any sort of accounting or finance roles.
Up side is people are always friendly and coworkers will be there to help pick up some slack if you're stuck. There is always room to grown with raises and bonuses coming twice a year and they promote from within if you do choose to stay with the company for the long term.
Production utilty (Former Employee) – Sanders, AZ – March 3, 2018
Over worked. Company gets into your personally life. Lack of management. Lack of scheduling and lack of safety. Plant manger only care about themselves over safety of employees. Underpaid and over worked. No days off have to ask for them.
Logistics Coordinator (Current Employee) – Radnor, PA – April 26, 2017
Very fast paced but room to grow if you're willing to adapt and fill needs as you see them, but you have to go for it, not many people will ask you to do new things, you have to be a self starter in this company
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Bloomer, WI – May 26, 2016
Management was completely understanding and saw you as part of a work family rather than just another person they boss around. Work is hard but prideful. Opportunities in all areas of the organization. Excellent benefits.
Great pay, excellent management, advancement opportunities
Executive Assistant- Full Time (Former Employee) – Bountiful, UT – August 21, 2013
Being the office manager and executive assistant for 7 different executives, I found the work environment very easy to work in with very little distractions so I was able to get all of my work done. My co-workers were always traveling so there weren't that many people in the office on a constant basis. The hardest part of the job was meeting deadlines and completing action items, but with little to no distractions I was able to complete everything whenever necessary. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to help people and make sure their job was easier based on the assignments I needed to complete for them.
free lunches and food and drinks in the office. great benefits and a 401K
My position was never secure, They had to lay off 40% of corporate office and I was a part of that 40%, also a very long drive from where I lived, Sometimes it got lonely in the office because i as usually the only one
