    I understand and agree that:

    1. Although management makes every effort to accommodate individual preferences, business needs may at any time make the following conditions mandatory: overtime, shift work, weekend or evening work.
    2. I understand that if I am employed at a division within an “at will” state, such employment is for no definite period of time and that Knife River can change wage, benefits and employment conditions at any time. If employment with this organization is at a division with an “at will” state, the Employee may resign at any time and the Employer may discharge Employee at any time with or without cause. Not all divisions are located in “at will” states.
    3. If a job offer is made by the company, I agree to submit to a post-offer, pre-employment physical examination, fit for duty test and drug screening test as a condition of employment. I understand that an offer of employment is conditioned upon the results of said testing being satisfactory to the company.

No promises regarding employment have been made to me and I understand that no such promise or guarantee is binding upon Knife River.If a conditional offer of employment is extended to me by Knife River, I understand I may be asked to authorize a background check, which may include a motor vehicle, criminal, education, employer verification and/or a credit check based on the position for which I am being considered.
