Great People, terrible management
Confidential (Former Employee) –  Canada8 February 2019
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

Not worth the time
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Bc24 May 2017
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
