Management is lackluster at best. Focus only on production. All else except safety seems to be ignored. Older staff seem to gossip to the point of creating a hostile environment.

It is a great place to work. The people are so nice and welcoming and everyone is there to do the best job they can every day and expect you to do the same.

Salary and Benefits are fair. Great colleagues. However management is terrible. Hiring and specifically promotions are based on who you know rather than your skill set. No recognition for your hard work. Managers take the credit. No work life balance especially if you are on operational side.

A typical day at work was always reasonable, staff was approachable, superiors were helpful, overall safe environement. The work is unpleasant but the wage compensates; overall work environement was depressing

Lots on the go!
Not enough hours in the day to feel on-top of your work.

Culture is "old boys club"

Very much a place to come to, head down and get the job done.

The review from a planer supervisor from Delta BC in 2018 is false and probably written by someone from management. We haven't had a planer supervisor in more than 2 years.
Pros

Pros

The people were great, but senior management is terrible. Old school mindset with no intention of changing. Completely out of touch with today's world. Typical corporate atmosphere.

They will work you to death and not think twice about it.


Main reason people lose jobs at this place is because it is poorly managed.
Pros
Good coworkers
Cons
Poor leadership that ends up costing people jobs

Productive and Great place to work for.. Very safety oriented company, does not comprise on safety. Great group of people to work with.Fast past production line, very professional management and great employees.
Sorry no playing time.I learned great team leading skills, never comprise on safety. The hardest part of the job was probably the extended hours on daily basis. The most enjoyable part was working with great management and unionized workers. I learned a lot about safety and quick pace of the production line without comprise to the quality of the finished product.They have bbq for the whole mill lots of incentives and great policy and medical coverage's.Great workplace culture.A typical day at work is safety first and production secondary, very fast paced.The workplace culture was great.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
long hours

Like most sawmills lack of Direction in management, always have big Ideas, fail to follow through with them, upper management always changing along with directions and goals. Hard to keep up with mind-reading. Work environments typically poor morale is quite poor. Interfor is definitely a mediocre company.. it's definitely dog-eat-dog in management and who can put the knife deepest in their back
Pros
You get to go home at the end of the day
Cons
Too much to list

Pros

Cons
No shift flexability Only 3 options, and they aren't the best.
