Q: What Do You Like About Working at NSBSL?
“North Star provides unlimited growth opportunities for all team members. Almost a third of our leadership team is female,” said Sheri Caldwell, Vice President of HR. “When we hire a young woman, we pair her with a seasoned employee to serve as a mentor.”
Truck Scale Administrator Jaime Pearson said, “After years of raising my kids at home, I decided to look for a job. I wanted to find a job with meaning. I wanted to work for a company that actually cares about its employees and helps them improve. NSBSL gave me the tools I needed to improve my skill set and confidence.”
Team member qualification and participation are top priorities at North Star. “I like that this company looks for qualified employees,” said Sara Smith, Electrical Technician. “It’s more important that your crew members know what they know rather than who they know or where they come from.”
Vice President of HSE Kristin Malosh said, “I love how the team-based approach drives our continual improvement. We celebrate our successes but always look for ways to learn and improve.”

Caldwell added, “It’s important that women don’t limit themselves. Don’t pass up an amazing opportunity because you think you’re not qualified. Go outside your comfort zone and apply for every job that interests you, no matter the industry.”
