Well known that Catalyst paper was run for years by investors more interested in leeching money from the operations than actually running them properly. The pay is below industry standard. Management is a game of musical chairs, complete lack of leadership and communication.
Day to day is okay, good co workers make all the difference. Most people are really nice.

This Company will take as many hours out of you as you are willing to give, you could live at work. If not for the union protection all the hourly employees would get screwed like the managers do.

No money for maintenance, bare minimum training. Everyone has a shoestring budget and everything is held together with duct tape. Constant rumors of Mill being curtailed or shut down.
Pros
Co workers are good, easy work pace
Cons
Pay is below industry average, deductions are high, no advancement
