Why work for us?

BNI Coal, Ltd. operates in two locations in North Dakota. Our corporate office is in Bismarck and our mine is about 35 miles northwest of Bismarck near Center. Professional staff is employed at both locations and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers represents the hourly workforce at the mine.

To attract, retain and motivate a highly qualified workforce, the company provides a total compensation package of salary and benefits that compares favorably to other area energy companies.

The strength of BNI Coal lies within the strong work ethic of its employees and the excellent working relationship between management and employees. The company experiences very little turnover each year and most of that is because of retirements.

When possible, BNI promotes from within the company and uses the regional labor market to fill open positions. We provide skills and job training to benefit all employees and encourages continued education through a tuition reimbursement program.
