terrible culture characterized by misery
Operator (Former Employee) –  Grande Prairie, AB9 October 2018
they treat you like an idiot. safe hard work means very little, and only butt kissing gets you anywhere. the only way to stand the place for any length of time is to stop caring.
Pros
wage
Cons
everything but the wage

Very poor Management. Union is cancer.
Planner/Scheduler (Former Employee) –  Edson, AB27 April 2018
Union combined with bad Management will ultimately cause the mill to close down.

Management is hired right out of high school. Some do not even have high school.

Union enables lazy workers to be even more lazy.

Very poor moral.
Pros
Located close to town
Cons
Too many to list.

steam plant
Second class power engineer/ shift engineer (Current Employee) –  Kenora, ON12 December 2017
job itself is retirement level and fairly easy, however the management doesn't have any respect for the staff whatsoever and disregards all the staff experience and basically tells us we just don't understand how the process works. Unfortunately with zero time in this plant and has yet to ask anyone here how the system works.Will not take advice from anyone but wants to make changes without understanding the process.
Good aspect of job is that we do our own maintenance within the steam plant.
Pros
easy job, decent pay/hours, decent vacation package
Cons
overtime is expected and tied to wages

Shift Millwright (Former Employee) –  Ear Falls, ON22 November 2017
I miss the old days there when it was Weyerhaeuser, it was an incredible place to live and work, like a big family and very good memories. No longer the same company or people now.

Uncomfortable and insecure environment. Strong subcultures.
Machine and Forklift Operator/Driver (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC17 November 2017
Poor culture. Tail wags the dog. Silence is Golden Rule. See nothing, say nothing. Accepted rampant bullying of many employees by other employees. Asbestos was in machine insulation.
Pros
Good pay.
Cons
All else.

Summer Student (Former Employee) –  Grande Prairie, AB30 August 2017
A typical day at work was very busy, the people are very good to work with. The management is very knowledgeable and willing to help. The hardest part of the job for me was the hours I had to work, it was hard to have a social life while working here.
Pros

Depends on the area you work in
Shift Engineer (Current Employee) –  Edson, AB9 August 2017
This company has some great qualities such as location to town, room for growth, training and advancement, as well as an average benefits program. However, it does turn a blind eye to health and safety when it comes to a few areas of the mill.

Dependable company
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Kenora, ON16 May 2017
Some times we work hard but generally a days work is easier to perform than most jobs.
I learned to save some dirt for trouble makers.
The place is very well managed from the top.
There are a few workers (very few) that have an ambition to spread negative stories.
Some of the manual labour makes a person sweat a lot.
Dependable, some times fun place to work with good pay.
