Fun workplace, great co-workers, reliable managemnet
Labourer (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 25 February 2013
I very much enjoyed working at Domtar in Kamloops BC. The hours were long and I spent most of my days outdoors under the hot BC sun, however my co-workers were very easy going and fun people to spend my days with. The management was amazing. They made sure all their employees were happy and looked after. Every morning, we started our day with a brief discussion about how we all felt about the job, if there were any area's we could, as a team, improve on and what, if any, idea's we had that could benefit our working conditions. Over all, one of the best job's I've had thus far.
Steam Plant Assistant Shift Engineer/ Operator (Current Employee) – Espanola, ON – 21 April 2018
Great place to learn about a very broad spectrum of equipment encountered in our field. First class rated plant allows for all required exam time. Equipment is quite old with much upgading/maintenance needed. The employees are generally well trained though at present are mostly new to the mill due to a high rate of retirement. Management has a very, I say 40s style. Safety is a priority and money is being spent to upgrade equipment. Rotating 12 hr. shift schedule 188.8.131.52.2.2. Your schedule can and often does change on a weekly basis.
Plant size and equipment with steam time availability.
