I have had a great time working with Weyerhaeuser, but was only on a one year contract. I would like to stay and work with them as they are a very good company to work with. They make easy to come into work every day.

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.

Job lost its luster in the later year . CEO changed the mind set and made the employees uneasy. Plant closure was going to happen with the CEO at the helm .

Claims safety is key but is more concerned with production then safety. Not very friendly environment, ask the wrong persona question and they will make your life miserable. If you stand up for yourself you will be fired.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Long hours, poor training, favouritism, Not a good place to work.

My co-workers were the best bunch of people I've ever had the pleasure to work with. I still keep in touch with many of them. A typical day work include meeting with team members to go over job plan and schedule work for the day to learned about the different aspects of safety and how to handle any situation that may occur during the shift. Management is some what good ,but can used some improvement and have excellent co-workers ,the hardest part of my job is climbing into tight places and keeping clean. The shift was 5am-2pm, and it really took a toll on your body, but it was also nice to be done that early
Pros
free lunches, close knit
Cons
management could be more involved/comitted

I enjoyed working for Weyerhaeuser. The people on my crew were amazing for the most part. The shift was 4am-12pm, and it really took a toll on your body, but it was also nice to be done that early. The work environment was pretty good for the most part, some of the other crews didn't really acknowledge the crews around them. So we generally just stuck to ourselves.

If consistency and continuity is something people are looking for, the mill life is the choice. Simple work, nothing too strenuous. An overall good job, however management and supervisors as well as HR were so misguided and corrupt that it ultimately lead to my decision to leave.
Pros
Lots of food
Cons
Inconsistent direction
