Job Work/Life Balance
Bad work environment
supervisor (Former Employee), Thomasville, AL – July 4, 2015
Pros: Most people there are good to work with.
Cons: Plant manager is a tyrant. Won't let people do their jobs. Yells at people. Mediocre benefits.
I was hired at a very good salary and the promise that I would have control over my department. Quickly found that was not the case. He acts nice for a while, then gets mad at you. Once he gets mad, he stays mad. He tries to micro manage all his management and does not respect or listen to the people who know what to do. When the plant is down he create a lot of tension. People make bad decisions just to make it look like they are doing something. The plant itself has a lot of problems - mechanical and electrical. It will take a lot of time and money to correct them, if possible. The manager and plant make for a poor working environment. The medical is also poor. Until you reach your deductible you don't have insurance. I don't know if the plant manager's attitude is standard Louisiana Pacific. I definitely do not recommend working in a management position at this location.
Unsafe and dangerous place to work,uneducated management
Maintenance department (Former Employee), Houlton,maine – March 25, 2014
Pros: decent pay
Cons: long hours in dirty, dusty and unsafe conditions
A typical day started with a unorganized meeting with an department head that did not understand his job or responsibilities. I learned that when working at Louisiana-Pacific you did not need to know how to do a job to get promoted to a management position. Managers were usually uneducated and rude to work with. co-workers were told to be a good worker you need to report anything that your co-workers were doing back to management. The hardest part of the job was constantly defending yourself against uneducated managers and their unstrung claims. The most enjoyable part of the job was finally getting laid off.
