Labourer (Former Employee) – Englehart, ON – 14 July 2017
If you are in the union you are protected. If staff you are not. Want puppets, You cannot voice an opinion. If you show initiatives people feel threatened and therefore your job can be in jeopardy. Negative working environment which is sad because it could be an awesome place to work. They encourage throwing fellow employees under the bus; no WE are in this together attitude. Management is horrible!
Fair salary, benefits
No concept of working together. Union required in places of employement such as this.

Customer Development Manager (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 20 October 2016
Everyone willing to share their knowledge when situations arise, silos in this office did not exist. Management was always approachable and listened to any suggestions, but being in another country made it difficult to implement programs and missed many opportunities. Most people made the job enjoyable and in some cases effortless.

A typical day at work was to focus and dedicate 100% to every task undertook. My co-workers and the management team each contributed in all aspects of learning new skills and assisted me in expanding my capabilities. The hardest part of my job was not knowing which of the variables were going to affect the process of my duties, as each day throughout the day we dealt with several variable circumstances. However, working as a team made each day more interesting and together we always succeeded. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with a great team of co-workers.
I worked with several good hardworking people.
The only cons I can think of is that the mill is shutting down.
