Production Worker (Current Employee) – Kenora, ON – 16 May 2017
Some times we work hard but generally a days work is easier to perform than most jobs. I learned to save some dirt for trouble makers. The place is very well managed from the top. There are a few workers (very few) that have an ambition to spread negative stories. Some of the manual labour makes a person sweat a lot. Dependable, some times fun place to work with good pay.
Stable work environment with many opportunities for growth.

Senior OSB Sales Account Representative (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 21 September 2016
very safety conscious company; opportunities to learn beyond ones' scope; a fantastic environment for team building and transferring of information across various teams; roles-responsibilities-relationships are clearly defined but flexible within the business
Maintenance/ Internal Stores (Former Employee) – Drayton Valley, AB – 24 August 2016
Claims safety is key but is more concerned with production then safety. Not very friendly environment, ask the wrong persona question and they will make your life miserable. If you stand up for yourself you will be fired.
Long hours, poor training, favouritism, Not a good place to work.
Clean-up crew/ Summer Student (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 23 September 2015
I enjoyed working for Weyerhaeuser. The people on my crew were amazing for the most part. The shift was 4am-12pm, and it really took a toll on your body, but it was also nice to be done that early. The work environment was pretty good for the most part, some of the other crews didn't really acknowledge the crews around them. So we generally just stuck to ourselves.
Very productive site with friendly people and lots to learn
Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Hudson Bay, SK – 29 January 2014

Very well managed company, safety, production and employee relations

Summer Student (Former Employee) – Hudson Bay, SK – 26 July 2013
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. Management at the plant was top class.
Temperatures are very hot while cleaning out blenders

Maintenance Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 3 May 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 practices.
The best part of the job was having people approach me after 6 months to praise me.
