The mill gets a bad rap, but really it’s not that bad of a place to work. Most departments are 4 on 4 off schedule, so lots of time away from work. There was also a lot of opportunity for OT. Payment was fair.

I learned a lot in terms of forestry and the safety involved in the production of logs from the log itself to the finished goods and also the operation involved

If they offer you a job as a supervisor run for your life. Horrible experience.Resolute expects tremendous amount of overtime for supervisors with no compensation.z

During my time employed, I received plenty of training to feel confident in my work area. Questions I had relating to the job were answered respectfully and honestly. The supervisors are all great people with great interpersonal skills and were always willing to make sure everyone is doing a safe / good job. Work environment safety and PPE were always ensured. I would highly recommend working with resolute.

Oh boy, what is there to say.

Well first off all of the sawmill workers are generally great people, most just trying to get through a day but willing to lend a hand if you're new and need help. Your first level supervisors are also responsive, and good people.


However, the mill is old and on its last legs. The mill's upper management is one of the most toxic group of "professionals" I have ever experienced, and the culture they create is one that demeans workers and nurtures a sexist environment.


Management's primary focus is on uptime production, and because of this they blindly follow policies that push operation to its limits, and then they wonder why their production stalls out and requires mechanical downtime. Of course this is blamed on the workers, not management for their lack of forethought or planning, for the long-term operation of this mill.


If you like to be micromanaged, treated like a literal dog by someone with no appreciation for your education or skills, harassed, further demeaned (especially if you're female), and generally made to feel like management is looking for an excuse to let you go, then this place is probably everything you want.


Most people that accept jobs here are just counting the days till they can jump on the next opportunity they get, however if you list them on your resume you're almost guaranteed to never get a call-back so its up to you if you want to invest time in something with little chance for outside advancement.


There's a reason that they're always hiring, and it doesn't bode well for new employees.

Management lacks professionalism and communication skills. They are more concerned about production and money than their most important assets their employees. Very old fashioned. NOT A GOOD PLACE TO WORK.

This company likes to say and do one thing while working towards hidden objectives that the management team may have. I would not recommend working for this company if you have long term goals
