Work life balance is terrible.
VGOB (Current Employee) – Medford, OR – July 29, 2018
Let me start by saying Boise Cascade is a decent place to work with great benefits and decent pay. The management in my location is awesome, all the way from the bottom to the top, very easy to talk to and they try to address any problems you may have.
The average day is usually super hot in summer and cold in the winter (depending on your location). Work is mostly laid back, at least my job is operating a dryer.
My biggest issue with this company is the work/life balance. It works well if you dont have a family and really dont want a life. Be expected to work 8-13 hours shifts 6 days a week (6 days a week is mandatory at my location because of the turnover rate and cant find people to hire) I wonder why? This is especially rough when you work graveyard, i dont mind hard work and working longer days, but how do they expect anyone to recover and actually want to come to work when your only day off you sleep all day so you can be ready for work the next?
