Over worked/not ideal for new families
Fleet Managment (Former Employee) –  Saint John, NBJanuary 19, 2016
My career currently is a company that is not the best at being family friendly. I currently work 55-60 hours/week and only bring home a salary for 40 of them. I enjoy my job and people I work with. Just looking to make a career change that allows me to spend more time home and with my family.

Fair employer...long hours expected..compensated appropriately.
Leader - Financial Planning and Analysis (Former Employee) –  Saint John, NBOctober 15, 2014
The company is siloed into many other companies and branches with different reporting relationships to a shared services contained head office. Each company seems to have a unique work environment. There were lots of long hours and weekends expected, but it fit with the compensation package.

Excellent people!
Senior VMWare/Citrix Consultant (Current Employee) –  St. John, NBOctober 8, 2013
The folks at JD Irving are an excellent group. They drive to get things done and reach their objectives.

Their culture is good and they are always there to help.

Sometimes the drive is a little agressive and they tend to forget that there is "life" outside work.

Overall, a great company.

A f*rt wrapped in golden linings
E/I supervisor (Current Employee) –  Irving Pulp and PaperAugust 8, 2013
This company or the human resources end of it does not care about the employee - you are a number, that's it. Years ago they were the people to work for, you received a very good wage and great benefits for an honest days work- not anymore, their bottom line is what's going out the door and not the well-being or happiness of their workforce.
Pros
steady pay check
Cons
politics
