Summer Student (Former Employee), Hudson Bay, SKJuly 26, 2013
Pros: great co-workers

I was a summer student at Weyerhaeuser. A typical day at work was measuring bundles, worked on production line utilized strapping machine, Firewatch, cleaning out blenders, lock out of equipment, working in loud and dusty environment and wearing proper PPE. I enjoyed working with my co-workers. We work as a team and encourage one another on the job. – more... Management at the plant was top class. – less

Maintenance Manager (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCMay 3, 2013
I spent each work day visiting different manufacturing sites to analysis business practices, primarily in the maintenance organizations. I created improvement plans and initiated training for site leadership. I implemented measurable goals to encourage success.

The hardest part of the job was changing entrenched and ineffective management styles and – more... practices.

The best part of the job was having people approach me after 6 months to praise me. – less

We had a covered area outside to eat and smoke,really nice in the summer.
Wax Operator, Flexo Operator, Dye Cutter Operator (Former Employee), Golden, CONovember 10, 2014
Pros: the job itself was a good job, plus free food ounce a week if we made goal witch we did.
Cons: some orders were harder then others, but it was a challenger but i liked that in a way too.
Fora work day I would look at the schedule and see what we would have to run that day and get everything set up a head of time.And run the machine. I learned the Waxer, the Fleos, the Dye-cutters but there was different types of these machines but that had the same names. Management was really nice the plant manager would walk around everyday to see – more... how everyone was doing, he even new all of our names by heart. Co-workers were alright, we were all kinda spaced out so we were never really side by side.The most hardest part of the job I would say would be keeping the ink a a constant thickness, because a lot of the time the ink would get either to thick or way to thin. We were treated in a fair way. – less

I was hired as a 3rd. shift maintenance machinist, working alone with an electrician
Maintenance Machinist (Former Employee), Barrington, NJOctober 10, 2014
Pros: i could easily convince my supervisor on cost saving projects or safety.
Cons: working alone can can be a real challenge.
I would arrive 1/2 hour early to get a carryover from 2nd. shift( 2 man shift).When they left ,I would roll my toolbox to the corrugator (100yrds. long and ran a 110 inch web) There were 9 finishing
machines with a mile of conveyor but the corrugator had to run because downtime was measured at 7,000 $ an hour. At the corr.
I would go up and down each – more... side as it ran and look for bad rolls and bearings and such. I referred to my supervisor as my partner and
he called me Mcguiver. If there were no problems at the corr. I would go back to the machine shop and work on projects and work orders.
When working alone there came many times where I had to be
creative to finish the jobs. There were 7 machinists on daywork and
they had complete respect for my work as 1st. class. – less

Long hours and challenging labor consession.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee), Aurora, ILSeptember 28, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: little leadership. management managed from a desk.
Great place to polish and develop unorthodox leadership styles when dealing with union bargaining. The hardest part of the job was to define management goals. Management did not support out-of-the-box decisions to meet production.

Green End - Utility (Former Employee), Emerson, ARSeptember 5, 2014
Pros: great breaks, safety first, employee focused
Cons: building is an open warehouse, summer and winter in southern arkansas
Everyone starts as an green chain off-bearer which is okay it is not difficult work. You get a break ever 90 minute for 15 min and 25 min for lunch. there is also the training period which last about 2 weeks because they are real serious about safety. it is not for show safety is their number one concern. Overall I liked it but it was not the job i – more... wanted I just needed something to pay the bills until the job my degree was for arrived – less

Hands on fire fighting, every day is differnt
Process Owner (Current Employee), Longview, WAAugust 26, 2014
Pros: ability to work both independently and in team environments
Cons: culture change needed to bring operation to world class
Fast paced manufacturing operation where troubleshooting, engineering, people skills and time management are tested on a daily if not hourly basis. A typical day consists of optimizing day to day operations, with a heavy focus on safety and environmental compliance. In addition, long term planning, corporate goal alignment and cost cutting are at the – more... fore front of most project work. Throughout my 12 years with Weyerhaeuser I have learned to set priorities, work within allotted budgets and push for change that will drive down costs and increase reliability. – less

If back stabbing and micromanaging is what you want.
MILLWRIGHT (Former Employee), Sweethome, ORAugust 6, 2014
Pros: hourly staff is awsome to work for
Cons: if your not salary watch your back, you are expendable.
There is no care for the people here unless you are Salary/ Management. This company use to be a good company to work for but with the micromanaging and the lack of caring for their people this company is going down hill. I made several sacrifices for this company to be a better employee for them and when it came down to financial issues was the first – more... one to be cut. Might not be Weyerhaeuser in a whole but the Foster Division is terrible. – less
