    Old Dominion Freight Line is the best place to work. Everyone treats everyone like family.

    Kind of surprised. Everyone that I know who works at the LDS church office building hates it. It’s pretty cutthroat there. They are a huge employer here too. My new job is a good place to work at but my last job wasn’t.

    Typically working for cults hasn’t been the highest on the job satisfaction list to be honest. Just sayin. But there are a lot of great places to work around here! Love what the health care is coming to in Utah lots of jobs there as well!
