when i first got this job it was like winning the lottery for me but after so many years of terrible management and lack of support i had to leave. the project manager is very lazy and will not provide the support needed to do the job, the service manager only cares about getting scrap money from your jobs and theres two bosses in our office and neither of them do anything about this unless someone above them is dissapproving.

Well managed Canada wide Calgary management had some problems, very good company overall. The project manager was not a lot of help I made most of the dicisions for the field he was a refrigeration mechanic, would have been a lot more helpful if he or she was a plumber. That being said we got through our jobs successfully.

great workplace generally ruined by an insidious management culture. They care very little for their workers and ask them to perform unrealistically They will lie to you and tell you everything is fine but then trash you behind your back. It's true that in this industry you never know who to trust and this company shows that well. The office staff however were super and always took care to handle and administrative work quickly and efficiently. They don't pay for you parking ever when they run you around all over town

Truly appreciate knowledge associated with the production of Oriented Strand Board. I enjoyed many of the people I worked with, and for. I always viewed the mill as a diamond in the rough, the possibilities are encouraging.

a great learning experience, with a constantly changing work environment with many different tasks. a crew of chipper office staff ensure a pleasant work day, and face to face interactions with the boss make you feel like part of the company.
