Debilitating and distressing.

What is the best part of working at the company?The experience in appraisals, and technical work.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Supervisor - quite narcissistic and vindictive towards me, always preventing pleasant social interactions and generally unfairly appraising my work after I made a HR report, leading to a 'performance improvement plan' whichbwas designed to out me legally within the 2 year window after which severance would have to be paid.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Generally hands-off. Lots of chronism and 'old boys' which makes it difficult for an individual not previously connected to have a fair run of it.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Lonely and frightening for me, but that maybnot be the case for you.

Colleagues are supportive and it is a productive place to work. New and exciting projects are on the agenda and your initiatives are always welcome.

The transition for me was very smooth. Everything that I needed to perform my job better has been provided without struggling. Working hours are flexible and once I feel a bit unwell my boss allowed me to work from home for a couple of days. It seems like there is plenty of room for career growth and you will excel as you blend into corporate governance.

Exciting Work Environment

Every day is a new challenge that I am I able to overcome due to the support I receive from all levels of management. Everyone is invested in not only the company, but each other. With new challenges comes the opportunity to learn and grow.

Organization cares about it's people

As a relatively new employee I can genuinely say that the care and compassion that I see across the organization for one another is really impressive. I look forward to spending many more years here and further developing these relationships

Excellent working environment

The team I worked with was fantastic. Knowledgeable, helpful and room to grow if you wanted. I started out as a Accounts Payable Clerk and worked my way up to Senior Acccounts Payable. Professional growth was something they really helped out with. Paying for courses that directly were in your field of work.


Appointments were paid


Busy busy

Fast moving pace with plenty of opportunity to learn and grow

Typical day at work is fast moving, constantly have to keep production going. Learned new equipment related to planer production. Management was always there to help if needed, people enjoy working and the hardest part is when you can not fix a machine quickly. Very much enjoyed the work and getting to know coworkers.

this is a sawmill so it is the lumber industry which is in a downturn currently. I am used to being challenged with the other jobs I have and this one was very boring.


home every night


no stability

Could be a fun place to work

Market is turning badly for the forestry industry. Conifex had really great people working there and could really feel like family. Every day is very busy and flies by. I have learned a lot about myself and what I can accomplish while being there. I have learned that I can be a leader. Management can be difficult. Workplace culture is at an all time low. the hardest part of the job is feeling that this place does not have much longer. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people.

Good shifting

I work at the Power Plant and that's a good place to work. You always have individuals that are going to complain about everything, even if it's something they wanted and here is no different, overall it's an easy place to work, just do your job and you wont have any problems.


Easy work atmosphere, good wages


some negative attitudes

Challenging and Unpredictable

A typical work day is never the same. Challenging and ever changing yard conditions. Management do there best to accommodate all employees. Best part of working at Conifex is the rate of pay :)


free coffee


volatile market conditions

Great Wage & Benifits Package.

Worked For This Company For Over 10 Years, Stable Work. Did Many different labor Jobs In The Sawmill. The Work Was Repetitive & Monotonous At Best. My Co-workers Were Mostly Great. Current Management has been in Place Far To Long. The Hardest Part Of Working For This Company Was Puting Up With The Management.


Great Pay

Poorly managed.

I worked here for 11 years that I will never get back. Their apprenticeship program is well run and definitely has a good track record. Other than that, management has been in place for too long and is one dimensional.
