horrible place to work
former employee (Former Employee) –  Trenton, ON29 November 2016
All employees are treated like machines. All they care about is numbers and production. Their safety is horrible and if u get injured you arent allowed to go on workers comp, they just swipe u in and out. No job security as they will fire you on a whim as there is no union and they take advantage of that. Pay rate is low for the work that you do.
Pros
days off
Cons
very bad management and production manager

Poor Working Environment
Operator (Current Employee) –  Trenton, On8 October 2016
Low pay, really, really bad moral problem on the floor.
Lack of machine maintenance and the emphasis on production numbers means producing poor quality products (I wouldn't buy 60 percent of the product made),
No emphasis on training whatsoever.
Have to work all holidays
Benefits are basic, could be better.
Pros
None
Cons
12 hour shifts, including working holidays

Upper management needs to hire a lot more ppl for this facility to operate the way that they want it to run
Millwright (Former Employee) –  Trenton, ON3 August 2016
Trenton facility is slowly moving into a bigger facility...but things are happening too fast....they need to hire more ppl for the floor & they desperately need more skilled trades in there ASAP.
To have 1 shift mechanic on the nightshift is unreal & very unsafe.
Pay is low in the Trenton plant as well....one reason they can't & won't be able to keep anyone.

Benefits are ok but not the best...could use some fixing up.

NO PENSION!!!
Pros
Days off
Cons
Low pay, running around with your head cut off for 12 hrs

Kruger is a perfect company for anyone looking for a great work life balance. The culture is great and very rewarding. The marketing and the sales group are dedicated and committed.

I was a union member here
Union member (Former Employee) –  New Westminster, BC9 April 2013
This review is for the New Westminster paper plant:
Average seniority at this place around 2010 was about 20-25 years, so before you moved up the only choice was to wait, especially due to its unionized environment.
Salary and benefits were up around the roof, great for a place that only required high school, the jobs were dead end but easy and they allowed reading books for some jobs which makes it a less than a mind numbing job.

Culture and values were pretty bad, tough to be under 30 at this job like I was, however the people were respectful. Very old school minded place from management all the way down the ladder.

Job security... well I got canned due to bad management practices, I along with another 50-60... so, perhaps the same as everywhere else, if you made it past 15 years you will be fine. However if the trade men/women liked you and you passed their aptitudes tests you could get an apprenticeship. If you had half a brain and/or kissed enough meat plus the right attitude they would move you to management, or at least management helper after around 10+ years. At least one manager however had neither, just the willingness to do the dirty jobs.

Management was all right, no complaints. They had their moody days when they wouldn't allow you to read a book in a mind numbing job and would prefer that you stare at the wall, or the machine you were looking after (even though they all had alarms to indicate something was wrong).

Work life balance, very bad as its a 24/7 manufacturing plant, but they do pay you enough to say that it was worth it.

If you want a life time
  more... job with limited but possible advancement opportunities this job is ideal. Again, the pay is glorious at this place for a person with no skills but willing to work.  less
Pros
excellent pay.
Cons
bad hours.
