Summer Student (Former Employee), Hudson Bay, SKJuly 26, 2013
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: temperatures are very hot while cleaning out blenders
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

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

Warehouse job. Hot, repetitive.
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Irving TXJune 30, 2014
Pros: turkey at thanksgiving, ham at christmas.
Cons: short breaks, hot. micro-managed.
I worked in Irving for this company about 13 yrs ago.
Very loud, so your day is managed by buzzers.
A buzzer tells you when to be working and when to be on break.
If it is work time, it is very likely a supervisor will be watching you.
This is similar to other warehouse jobs tho.
Drove a fork-lift and did allot of stacking before making it to assistant – more... machine op.
Company would spring 4 extra hrs of mandatory overtime on you at the end of your shift sometimes.
As a bonus they did give turkeys at thanksgiving. – less
