NorthStar is an exciting and challenging place to work. Our talented staff tackles architectural, engineering, environmental and surveying problems with enthusiasm. We have a very cohesive group of individuals who go out of their way to welcome new employees. We work in a relaxed environment with a casual dress code. Mentoring is provided continuously to employees for all aspects of the projects that we work on. Our office is located in Chico, at the north end of the central valley of California. The Chico community is rich in culture. We are surrounded by rice fields, fruit and nut orchards, and rolling foothills. Chico is very close to the Sacramento River, the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and Lake Oroville so there are many opportunities for outdoor recreational activities. The CSUC campus in town provides an excellent opportunity for continuing education and provides for a lively downtown atmosphere. The people in Chico are the greatest asset to the town. People here tend to be friendly, open minded, and well educated. There is definitely a strong sense of community among the residents. For more specific information on the town, see the Chico Chamber of Commerce site.
