There are not a lot of happy people working at WFP. I held a very senior position in the company and left shortly after BAM sold their controlling interest. Things went downhill rapidly after that. Still, when i go out into the community today, I run into so many people who quit, got fired for no good reason, or just wish they could get out. There are many negative reviews on this site. Take notice. Its a toxic, hateful place to work. The forest industry has always been a very demanding industry to scrape a living out of but WFP really has defined a new standard for toxicity and predatory management.

Answered

Revenue focused only. Free overtime is expected for salary. Toxic environment. High turnover due to bullying and the toxic demands of manager and no focus on employee retention. 50%+ of a department quit citing issues with the manager. Manager still there and the department can’t keep new hires.

Standard ESA guidelines however an old school machismo culture still very much exists within WFP's operations whereby those who take sick days are looked upon as weak or uncommitted. What is the point of sick days if most are afraid to utilize them.
