OSB production

When I worked with the Sawline team there were many different tasks that we all had so there wasn't much interaction with co workers.It was a safety based team that were pleasant to work with and the management took the time to see how your day was going.I really enjoyed the work atmosphere and the people that worked there.

Pros

profit sharing

Cons

long hours

terrible culture characterized by misery

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

Great place to learn about new things!

I enjoyed my time with them, although it was only a week and a half I worked with them. They're nice, helpful, attentive and caring for their employees.

Pros

Great break periods

Cons

Working graveyard shift.

Very poor Management. Union is cancer.

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.

Great work environment.

The culture of treating customers, vendors and employees with the greatest respect and care created a great workplace environment. Managers were genuinely interested in your success.

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

great place and people

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.

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.

Well respected employer within our community

I began there immediately after graduating and only left because I was relocating to the Lower Mainland. It was a great experience and thoroughly enjoyed the co-workers.

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.

Pros

pay & benefits

Cons

hours

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.
