Poorly run
Millwright (Current Employee) –  Armstrong, BC19 January 2018
The maintenance group in the sawmill that I work in is a great group of guys, the guys that are on the tools anyway. That being said the management are very much bosses and not leaders. There is very little to no coaching and building up of the employees, just belittling, micromanagement and managing the task and how it’s done rather than who does it. There is no leadership on major events, just after the fact conversations.

At times it can be extremely frustrating working her and it all boils down to the management and their attitude and approach to the workers. Fix that and it would be a great place to work. Instead it breeds low morale and lost productivity.
Pros
Excellent pay, good benefits, good location
Cons
Lack of leadership, poor management, lack of positive engagement, unprofessional atmosphere

Very toxic culture. Poor management, zero leadership. If you enjoy beating your head against the wall on a daily basis then Tolko is the place for you!
