Millwright at a lumber planing mill
Certified Red Seal Millwright (Current Employee) –  Elk Lake, ON19 June 2017
Good job with reasonable pay and mediocre benefits.
Good group of energetic, savvy coworkers.
Unfortunately the management is constantly changing and shifting, while trying to lower costs while increasing output.
That is the ultimate goal, but they're often cutting budget in the wrong places and the employees have lost incentive.
Pros
Smells like fresh cut jackpine!
Cons
Scheduling

No good
Planer labourer (Former Employee) –  Nairn, ON7 October 2016
The place would be a good place to work if the management team were better. They care very little about the employee and more about the lumber, this cause the moral of the work force to be extremely low. The place is very out dated and encounter a lot of equipment break downs and then this stress is passed onto the employees because quotas are not met. I worked there for 6 months and I can honestry say that it was the worst work place environment I have worked in.

Hostile Work Environment
HEW SAW OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Gogama, ON27 April 2015
In the three years I've worked there there's been harassment, larceny and negligence. And that's all from management. Don't expect much assistance from the union. You have to handle most grievances on your own for results.

Good work environment
Weekend Clean-up crew/ B-Shift sawmill/planer (Current Employee) –  Elk Lake, ON8 August 2014
hours were good as well as the pay and benefits, good working environment. Learned a lot about mill machinery and how to make basic repairs without millwrights. Enjoyed working with the coworkers and employers. When broke records management paid for pizza, steak,other dinners.
Pros
pay, benefits, management took care of employers
Cons
Machines went a while before being repaired, made work harder.

Do not come here
Labourer (Former Employee) –  Nairn Centre11 March 2014
The Nairn centre planer and sawmill are a joke run by condescending and dumb people. They promote kids who have childish attitudes to supervisor and the other supervisors are selfe serving jerks who have been working here for years and think they own the place.

There is a big dummy who is supervisor who goes pushing his weight around and is very condescending towards everyone. They do not care about their employees safety at all. Worse place I have ever worked and very very unsafe. Management for some reason will not get rid of these local jerk supervisors for some reason so people keep leaving. I cringe when I think about that place. The managers should be called mismanagers. Place is an absolute joke.
Pros
I don't work there anymore is the only pro
Cons
I used to work there

Bad Management
Tradesperson (Former Employee) –  Elk Lake Ontario28 September 2013
There was no communication with management. The managers had a military style attitude but were mismanaged. They are a company that does not respect their trades people. Safety is second to production. At times working conditions could be dangerous. Lack of concern for cleanlines. No relocation assistance.
Pros
All employees are great to work with.
Cons
Worst management ever

Electrical team leader / shift electrician (Current Employee) –  nairn center7 March 2013
This company has good and bad as all place. overall it can be a fun place to work at but the atmosphere with management and worker are at a all time low. most worker work in fear of losing there job which spread like cancer with in the rank. The union is weak and fractured and the wage for tradesmen are at a all time low and should be matching other industry in the region. Some manager are really great individual while other love to be condescending. WIth a strong union leader or a entirely new union this place could rank high in job sastisfaction
Pros
clean place to work on a industry standard. no chemical to deal which is great for overall health.
Cons
safety come second to production

Unionised Factory
Employee (Current Employee) –  Timmins, ON16 May 2012
A good place to work, consists of shift work, but decent hours. You start at the bottom (seniority). But if you tough it out, theres decent opportunity for advancement. They pay is ok, all jobs are unionised and the company provides dental and medical benefits and includes 50/50 pension plan.
Pros
right in town, free luncheons on fridays, benefits.
Cons
prefer, to leave, unsaid, as i am, currently, employed, here.
