Productive and work excellent

I have never worked for a company who respected their employees more than Weyerhaeuser. Management right down to the Union leaders treated us all with so much respect. Setting up the disability management program for this company was one of the greatest accomplishments of my career. The ability to learn and implement the program was a phenomenal success. I would recommend this company to anyone!

Pros

Benefits, salary, work life balance.

stay in school,, don't work here

The management doesn't know it's left arm from its right arm. You can be fired for being hurt here. Be prepared for bullying by management. The head guy is a kid who hires his buddies. Problems abound in this older, dirty mill. Clean up just sits there. Long hours and the overtime goes to taxes, so, not worth it. Unless you are a total loner with no family and no friends, then this is place for you. You will sign your life away to work long dirty days by yourself. It takes someone to get hurt before they put the proper signage up. Then they act like its your fault you got hurt. Cleaner uses Windex to clean everything. They don't disinfect, so cold season is a nightmare here. Weyerhaueser scabs out labor to contractors. These lower paid scabs get no benefits and are always on call, they have been using scab labor for seven years straight now to save on costs and not pay benefits. These scabs are well loved and will take a Weyerhaueser employees' job. Typical non union American company that doesn't care about it's Canadian workers, only that it can get logging contracts for the cheap Canadian stumpage fees. All American logging has to be paid for as its on private property. Here in Canada, they just take advantage of the Crown Land. Very corporate culture. Just rude.

Secure job with great pay, benefits and time off.

Weyerhaeuser was a great place to work. The company pays you extremely well, you are offered 2 weeks paid vacation whenever you want at the beginning of the year, and the benefits are high-coverage. The shiftwork as an associate was very difficult to adjust to, however.

Pros

Social Club

Cons

12 hour shiftwork

Good place to learn skills

Kind of hard to get into the inner circle of the crews that work there. They keep new people at a distance and its hard to break that barrier. The work is pretty easy if you are willing to actually do it. Look out for yourself because there are people who will go tell on you to the supervisor if they see you doing something wrong.

Pros

Sometimes get 5 days off in a row

Cons

Bad schedule

Great workplace, awesome union, very healthy workplace

The workplace was very good. Almost all the managers were good and handled things in a professional way. Usually people who are bullies do nt last long. The union here is amazing and very strong. The great atmosphere this workplace has is almost entirely due to all the great hourly workers and the union. However, they have some amazing managers too. Production work is not too labour intensive and interesting.

Pros

Decen schedule, decent pay, amazing union

Cons

some production jobs are repetitive

Management and veteran employees enjoy bullying and harrassment

The new production manager enjoys bullying his subordinates. He is vindictive and holds grudges anytime you question or call him out on something he is doing that isnt proper. I was served a disciplinary letter for making a worksafe claim, a claim and return to work program that management, HR, and the adjuster all agreed to. When I came back fit for work i was told if I took another sick day I would be fired. There is no advancement here. They show favoritism for the people who.act buddy buddy with the manager or shift workers, even if they aren't good at their job. I was told by supervisors and shift workers that I was doing a very good job and excelling and showing promise, but after a review of my performance with the production manager, I was told i was not a team player and not working hard enough. Despite that year working more overtime then I could ever imagine. You start on the call list. You are guaranteed your hours but not the days. So you may work 5 12 hour night shifts In a row before a day off. Or you may have a night shift with half a day off then a day shift. They boast about how much.easier it is for your home life but good luck ever getting a day off or vacation day that you want. You don't get to use your vacations for shut downs, you come in and do some of the worst work imaginable. Dirty and difficult. This plant doesnt care about safety they just care about paper work and appearance of safety. They put production first. 2 associates were told to clean an area without locking out by a supervisor, and then disciplined and one fired afterward for violating -

steam plant

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

Good place to work

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.

Depends on the area you work in

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.
