It’s alright
Management is poor however pay and benefits are good. Accumulated discipline plan sucks, petty suspensions and write ups. Schedule is nice if you’re full time.

Company that actually values promoting from within
I have been working with Western Forest Products since October 2021, in that time I have moved into a new role already and been given guided opportunity for advancement. I love working on a collaborative team and learning hands on. Overall grateful for my time with Western Forest Products so far.

Just have to try
Not a place for slackers if you care a bit about your job then you’ll do just fine l. If you whine about stuff then it’s not the place for you. Overall a good place to work.

It’s hard work, you need to be proactive. To bad it’s a dying industry.
Good guys, good work. Logging is a different kind of industry, there’s a lot of flying by the seat of your pants. But management would give you the tools you needed to get the job done. For better or worse your out in the element’s. Logging is up and down and if you’re not reliant on your paycheque it’s great, but they shutdown for heat and snow.

Interview questions

It was a long time a go

Shared on 20 May 2021

They asked mostly about my previous experience as safety rep and if I would be willing to be safety rep. They also asked me about my previous experience in other fields and how it would be transferable to their operation.

It doesn't even matter, they are so desperate for trades that all you need is a heart beat.
