Our culture is dynamic and fast-paced. It combines open communication, employee involvement, tremendous teamwork, and a “can do” attitude that gets results for our customers. Employees know their jobs contribute to the success of the company. In a recent employee survey, this was the highest ranking attribute. It’s no wonder that Northwest Cascade has twice been named by Washington CEO magazine as the “Best Medium-Sized Company to Work for in Washington State”.
Most of our production employees belong to one of three unions – Operating Engineers, Laborers, or Teamsters. All of our employees whether in a union or not enjoy 100% paid medical insurance, paid time off, education reimbursement and a generous retirement plan.
Room to Grow
As Northwest Cascade grows, so do the opportunities for personal growth and advancement. This is not just hype. We are committed to promoting from within, and we provide supervisory and management training for those interested in expanding their skills. Five of our key managers including the Vice President of FloHawks started their careers on the fuel island – fueling trucks at night. Our Vice President of Honey Bucket started as a laborer. How’s that for personal growth opportunities!
Northwest Cascade encourages employee involvement. Employees understand our critical success factors and take an active role in improving performance, quality, efficiency, and safety. Employees are empowered to make their own decisions on the job, keeping in mind our company mission and core values.
Northwest Cascade is committed to sharing its success with those that made it possible. Every employee is eligible for an annual bonus. Employees who become supervisors or managers are offered the chance to become a shareholder. The company currently has more than 70 owners. The value of our stock has increased each year, providing a valuable long-term benefit.
