New ownership group does not seem to have a committment to the future of the Powell river Facility. Otherwise a challenging and potentiall rewarding place to work. Have been permitted to advance far beyond what I cncieved even 10 years ago.

Management is so incompetent they interviewed me about a rumour. Very unprofessional! They don’t believe it necessary to interview an employee after 3 months or ever for that matter!
Points positifs
Umm, none.
Points négatifs
Have to be part of the old boys group to succeed with this company!

Constant curtailing machines for 1-3 months at a time making it near impossible to get ahead in life. Senior management is a bunch of puppets scared for their jobs and always trying to stab supervisors and hourly guys in the back.

Shortage of experience in senior positions a direct result of not hiring and training when need was highlighted years ago. Now seeing a dangerous level of inexperience in senior positions as workforce ages and retires. How about hiring and training BEFORE senior employees with experience retire or burnout from excessive overtime.

All in all not a bad place to work, curtailments are an unpleasant fact of life due to fibre shortages but with the economy they are unavoidable. Nice to be working at home!

There is great technology integration to work with in the instrumentation and electrical field. Lots of established systems and frameworks make this more of a stable position. The paper industry and catalyst do not pay amazing money however.

Working for Catalyst was my worst working experience so far. In operator roles there's no consistent schedule. Pay is lame. Working conditions are dangerous. Employees are mostly bitter and miserable with a few really good people here and there.

Terrible management and soap opera culture. Paid the bills for a while until I found something better. A negative environment with uneducated people in charge.

Good place to work, beautiful area of the world.
The paper industry is struggling, this business in particular has been struggling to recover from bankruptcy for years.

Dont expect any real help from the union. Equipment is not maintained safely and should be expected to leak/fail regardless of dangers to workers. Horrible worker morale since contracts.
Points positifs
Lots of experience fixing things
Points négatifs
Equipment failures are so common its dangerous.

Well known that Catalyst paper was run for years by investors more interested in leeching money from the operations than actually running them properly. The pay is below industry standard. Management is a game of musical chairs, complete lack of leadership and communication.
Day to day is okay, good co workers make all the difference. Most people are really nice.

This Company will take as many hours out of you as you are willing to give, you could live at work. If not for the union protection all the hourly employees would get screwed like the managers do.

No money for maintenance, bare minimum training. Everyone has a shoestring budget and everything is held together with duct tape. Constant rumors of Mill being curtailed or shut down.
Points positifs
Co workers are good, easy work pace
Points négatifs
Pay is below industry average, deductions are high, no advancement

Could be an amazing place to work if money was reinvested into the mill. Run into the ground with no pm plans and only breakdown maintenance. Too much management not enough workers

Terrible place, really poor and depressing culture, no support, mill is being sold off piece by piece, place is rotting and falling apart, nothing gets maintained only fixed if it falls apart and if it is critical, huge safety hazards and nobody cares, fire hazards from garbage and paper and explosive dust all over the place, nobody wants change (you do, you get intimidated), our union leadership makes things worse by fighting with management on everything under the sun just because they want to make a point...

An unfortunate place to work with being constantly threatened that the mill is closing to push people into lower standards and more hours. Top mgmt and HR do not appreciate the effort the middle management puts in. Endless hours. Phone calls at all times of night for assistance and blame and finger pointing when operation numbers are not met. Very toxic place to work with the best manager being let go for working non stop and improving the place........
Points positifs
Decent salary
Points négatifs
No future

Points positifs
Nice area and good hourly people

Bad Staff, lower wages and benefits
