Shift Engineer (Current Employee) –  Edson, AB9 August 2017
This company has some great qualities such as location to town, room for growth, training and advancement, as well as an average benefits program. However, it does turn a blind eye to health and safety when it comes to a few areas of the mill.

Dependable company
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Kenora, ON16 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.

If you stand up for yourself you will be fired.
Pros

Good people, environment could be better
Clean-up crew/ Summer Student (Former Employee) –  Grande Prairie, AB23 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.
