fast paced environment

I worked as a machine operator. This is a fast paced environment that expects high quality production. There is very little room for advancement. But the people were great to work with

run run run relentless pages. not allowed outside the door during your 12 hours. no smoking or tobacco allowed on the property.
Millwright Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Hantsport, NS6 September 2017
Absolute nightmare, totally incompetent management completely unorganized. If you like fighting fires all the time without any parts and nothing to work with , this is the place for you.
They probably have the greatest safety policy ever written, zero tolerance everything, however the only times it applys is when they want to fire someone, or doesn't interfere with production.

Poor Management
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Hantsport, NS26 July 2017
Favouritism and discrimination at all steps of the corporate ladder. Would not want anyone I care about to be employed by CKF as they discard long term employees regularly at all plants like dirty socks.
Pay off long term employees and include hush order clauses so no one knows about the labor law and human rights violations that happen on a regular basis.
When a president of a company states that "2 employees should be let go from each plant to keep everyone else on their toes" ...it is a sign that employees are not valued.
Pros
Salary
Cons
You lose yourself to a job that treats you like a number

Pulp and paper industries are about production , fast pace and be ready to learn fast.
Utility man (Former Employee) –  Langley, BC29 March 2017
Good benefits and plenty of hours with the 12 hr shift so overtime is always good. Lieu time-off if you work stats and overtime can be banked.Like the 4 on 4 off schedule, still have time to enjoy with family.
Most CEO's are overpaid management B.A. schooled paper pushers .
Management is grossly overpaid also for the amount of work done .
Pros
Free monthly safety parties....Free food and Beer.
Cons
long hours, fast pace, and production is always an issue.
