Not a bad place if you just want the money
Labour (Ancien employé) –  Valley, NS15 novembre 2018
I only worked here for a short time but it was more then enough.
I learned that you won’t go far if you start at the bottom and everything they tell you in the interview was Bs they are not looking to improve the people they have .
The people that you will work with here are pretty good but you can do better then Irving .
Points positifs
Great co workers pay is decent
Points négatifs
Everything else

not the safest place
Journeyman Welder (Employé actuel) –  halifax shipyards23 octobre 2018
a typical day at work is getting your job from your foreman and immediately having to safe proof your work area so you don't get hurt.Half of the foremen I am working for are from foreign countries so It is unknown what kind of on the job safety training they have or experience. Lots of young tradespeople so it's a concern as they are depending on these supervisors to make sure they work safe.Given numerous jobs that were not pre-checked by the supervisors such as sent into confined spaces with no communication with tank watch. told to sign onto other workers F.L.R.A. even though they are doing a different job in a different area to speed up the job. decking planks not secured days after foremen being informed about the danger. scaffolding being erected without kickplate (toeboard) scaffolders inspecting their own scaffolding they erect
Points positifs
tradespeople you work with
Points négatifs
management is either untrained or not concerned about safety

Pilot Work Sucks
Helicopter Pilot (Ancien employé) –  Saint John, NB19 octobre 2018
Helicopter pilot job schedule is the worst in the industry and on top of that you’re secluded in a camp where you have to do the cleaning, including the community bathrooms. Salary is decent but not worth it. Management guys are not very nice with a few exceptions.
Points positifs
Not much! Except the town is nice.
Points négatifs
Almost everything

Long hours, physically demanding, good pay
Tree Planter/Driver (Ancien employé) –  New Brunswick24 septembre 2018
Planting trees is an incredibly difficult job if you are not a determined individual, able to motive yourself everyday. It will test your durability and psyche. Not for the faint of heart. However, if you can stay motivated, then it pays well as a student summer job.
Points positifs
Good pay for a hard working student
Points négatifs
Long hours

Started out fun
Business Analyst (Ancien employé) –  Chipman, NB7 septembre 2018
Great place to begin a career. You will get weeded out within 3 yrs if they do not like you. Long hours are expected and no one will help you if it is your job. Bonuses were small. Leadership always had you scared and wondering if you'd be next
Points positifs
RRSP matching
Points négatifs
Long hours, little recognition

Neo-N-a-zi Management
Machine Operator (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON23 août 2018
Worked there for almost 7 years. Only hung on for the pay. Work life schedule was insane. 3 shifts day, 3 days off, 3 shifts night. Plus working overtime on your days off, none of which they would take into consideration of how many hours you have been putting in. 2 minutes late and you are grilled like you robbed them.most of the people (non management) are good to deal with. If you are young and single this is a perfect job for you. If you have a family please do not work here.
Points positifs
Good pay
Points négatifs
Everything else.... seriously

Not a great place to work
Warehouse Worker (Ancien employé) –  Moncton, NB9 juillet 2018
Seems to be like most places where the nastiest most inept people wind up in management and proceed criticize everything you do while not actually doing any work themselves.
Management is slothful and uncommunicative. They like to play favourites. If you wind up on their bad side for any reason, don't expect a plan of action on how you can improve.
Not worth your time or effort to work here they do not appreciate you.
Points positifs

Not a good place to work
Delivery Driver (Employé actuel) –  St. John's, NL20 avril 2018
No money hard work and the only benefit is the discount you get.don t work for any Irving company if you want to survive in the world .they will tell you that safety is #1.but when you go to management. They say no one else complained so you are the problem. Only worried about money not about safety

Good starting career
Support Staff (Employé actuel) –  Saint John, NB27 mars 2018
Mostly becoming a place for 20 somethings to be hired and mostly these are the people that advance their careers and get the training. Benefits could be better - no topped up parental or maternity leaves, not many sick days and no banking of sick days, no compressed work weeks, etc. Can work from home on stormy days, but otherwise it is kind of frowned upon. Very few resources to handle the amount of work therefore the workload is heavy. Collaboration is next to nil most times and you work independently all day. Good thing is that you can plan your own workday around your tasks despite much pressure to get things done.

Sawmill supervisor - Get some experience then get out!
Production Supervisor (Ancien employé) –  Valley, NS1 mars 2018
I was a new university grad and was hired as a supervisor in an Irving sawmill. I was there for just under 3 years. The starting salary was below industry levels and I had one minuscule raise over those 3 years. The company cries, hard times, "no one getting raises" quite often. It was good experience, but the the hours of work is the biggest issue with this role. You are paid for a 42 hour work week. You alternate days one week, to nights the next.
As it turns out, day shift is 5 days/wk for 10.5 hrs/day = 52.5 hrs. Night shift is 4 days a wk (4x10.5=42 hrs). There's a requirement to be on site 1/2 hour before shift to organize your crew, and 1/2 after shift to complete paperwork. Expect to work 11.5 hr/shifts or 103.5 hrs every 2 weeks, but only be paid for 84. The $/hr breakdown means you'll be making the same, or less, as your operators.
The turn over for supervisors is about 3 years or less. I gained a decent enough experience and then scored a supervisor job that paid better, worked less hours, less stressful, and closer to home.
I think that people that do well with Irving willingly put the extra hours in, as their corporate culture tries to brainwash you into thinking this is normal for every business. It's not at all. People need a life outside of work and to be paid fairly for the work put in. There are much better companies to work for out there than Irving.
Points positifs
Experience for new grads.
Points négatifs
Expected to work unpaid hours. Low pay to begin with.

Physically hard, great salary for students
Labourer (Ancien employé) –  Saint-leonard, NB8 janvier 2018
This jobs was really hard, had to do alot of heavy lifting and didnt eat properly since the time I was allowed was minimal. Learned a few things like welding and grinding. The most enjoyable part was the staff as they were usually funny and felt great. Workplace wasnt the best (summer) as it was extremely hot. Hardest part was the hours of work.
Points positifs
Free tims, great salary
Points négatifs
Long hours

Highly demanding but rewarding
Corporate Travel Manager (Ancien employé) –  Saint John, NB3 janvier 2018
J.D. Irving, Limited is a great place to work, They do have very high expectations but if you meet them, they reward you very well. The owners are loyal to those that are loyal to them. The challenge is with executive management that have their own addenda.

Top down management
HR Manager (Ancien employé) –  Saint John, NB7 novembre 2017
Too down management, they don’t make you feel included or like you have a voice. Tough to get advancement or more responsibilities. They have potential but not for someone looking for a modern culture.

too much gossip and favoritism
Labourer (Ancien employé) –  Doaktown, NB1 août 2017
I worked at the Value Added sawmill for four years which was very different to anything i has ever done in that i used my brawn and not my brains. The work was very physical, but I soon became used to it. I did not like the constant gossipping and bickering. I feel we all had to work, so why not work together and things would run much smoother. I enjoyed that I was knowledgeable enough to work at every work station, but was forced to quit for health reasons.
Points positifs
excellent wages and benefits
Points négatifs
back-stabbing
