This company is about average in salary and benefits compared to others in the same industry. People are friendly. Way too much politics and favoritism.

OK benefits. What's great about the benefits is the company matched RRSP contribution. Higher than average pay comes with higher expectations. Be prepared to be dedicated to your job.
Pros
Compensation
Cons
Rotating schedule

The only shifts offered are twelve hour shifts, gets boring doing the same thing over and over but thats to be expected of a factory manual labor job.

Loud machinery. Employee safety was always a priority. Employees themselves were often unpleasant and arrogant. Lots of BS workplace politics were always being played.

It was a nice place to work everyone was friendly, I worked there for a year to date until I had an accident and had to be out of work for a month. The manager didn't like that and let me go, said I should of been more carful and prevent the accident. But we all know that's impossible .

My typical day (or night as it was a job that circulated between night and day shifts with a three day break in-between) started with pulling on my work uniform and steel-toed boots and putting on ear and eye protection. I would then go to the supervisor to card in (time of arrival) and find out on which of the four machines I would start on that day.Every hour we'd moved to another machine: the line is where the facial tissue was unrolled and cut (job was to supervise paper and rolls and to fix machine and feed in paper when the paper broke). On the Jones, a machine that filled cartons with facial tissue, you needed to make sure that there was a never ending supply of cartons as well as monitoring the machine for any blockage and other problems. There were two case packers - machines that put the filled cartons from Jones into large cardboard boxes for shipping. Again, the job was to feed in a never ending supply of boxes and fix any problems that arose. Part of this section of the job was doing quality checks to ensure that the facial tissue, cartons, and boxes were within parameters set by the company. The last part of the job was readying large rolls of paper for the line to push in once the other roll ran out of material. This cycle continued for twelve hours straight.While working at Irving Tissue I learned the value of hard work and how to fix machines (at least the ones I was working with). I learned that my responsible nature and quick problem-solving skills were true assets when it came to fixing problems and that asking for help when it is necessary is not easy - more...
Pros
got fit, good money
Cons
long hours, no vacation, long periods of isolation

Worked as direct supervisor and time was spent daily to create empowerment and responsibility. I swicted back and forth between shifts and during days when not covering shift project work with union crews and staff were completed. Trained in Six Sigma and completed green belt with a mixed team.
