Avoid Salary positions, union jobs are fine.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 21 June 2017
Western has a solid future, I worked for the company for over 20 years. However, Salaried employees are leaving all the time, some don't even have a job to go to. At a time when the company is it's most profitable it is eroding salaried employees benefits and vacation packages. Be preparedv for long workdays and inadequate relief for when you go on vacation. Be prepared to work during your vacation. If you are a supervisor be prepared that your employees are making significantly more than you. If you are applying for a union job I would definitely recommend the company, I would never recommend that you take a salary position under the current leadership of the company.
Solid future as a Coastal lumber producer on Vancouver Island
There is no respect for work life balance for salaried employees
