Positive Energy
Labourer/Operator (Ancien employé) –  Hinton, AB19 mars 2019
Typical day at work was arriving and doing what you're supposed to do. You have 12 hours to do the job, and go home.

Management is great! I was a summer student there, they are very supportive and encouraging to return to work there again.

The hardest part was beating the night shifts, if you aren't used to this then it will take some getting used to. COFFEE!!
Points positifs
Great salary and benefits
Points négatifs
Long hours

Good experience, Very Dangerous
Field Operator (Ancien employé) –  Hinton, AB31 décembre 2018
Being an old plant, equipment is constantly failing. Working conditions do not seem safe, lack of gas monitors. Safety sometimes seems to come 2nd to profit. A very dangerous place to work.

The benefits are that there is a lot to learn, the job is interesting and the people are great.
Points positifs
Interesting, fun, able to grow, great benefits
Points négatifs
Might get seriously injured

west fraser
Labourer (Ancien employé) –  High Prairie, AB14 décembre 2018
early mornings we make a to do list about what needed to be cleaned up in the mill, our group would split and team up and get the job done while doing that you get to learn a lot about how the mill operates,hazards,etc.. Hardest part of the job was cleaning out the "chipper room" the best part was being able to operate equipment.
Points positifs
good money
Points négatifs
12 hour days

Good work/life balance,good pay/benefits
Quality Control Supervisor (Ancien employé) –  Chetwynd, BC10 décembre 2018
Good work/life balance. Perfect for those looking to establish a long term career in the lumber industry. The one drawback is mills are in somewhat remote locations.

Not worth the stress
Maintenance Worker (Ancien employé) –  Edson, AB6 octobre 2018
Great people to work with, not so great to work for. The management has been there so long that they "know" how long every job should take, and will give you a real hard time if it takes any longer. It's difficult to get holidays, even if you ask for them many months in advance. Some of the machines are a little newer and not too bad to work with, while others have been there for a lifetime and seen a lot of neglect. Morale is very low due to how all the workers are treated, suspensions are handed out like candy. They don't have enough employees because people often quit, and not many people want to do overtime because they aren't happy. They have taken away entire positions just to save cost, ie)there were some knifechangers who had that title for many years, who were then demoted to clean-up and the job of changing knives was delegated to sawfilers and maintenance, who are already under staffed and over worked.
Points positifs
Good pay
Points négatifs
High stress, poor management

Good coworkers, but not a family friendly place to work
Team Member (Ancien employé) –  Chetwynd, BC9 août 2018
Unorganized upper management who didn't seem to care about about lower team members. West Fraser is a boys club, great for the family men devoted to work. Not a very mom friendly place to work. Expect to have to put your work before your family many times to prove yourself there.
Points positifs
Decent pay, great co-workers
Points négatifs
Long hours, upper management

Terrible management.
Maintenance Worker (Ancien employé) –  Chetwynd, BC16 mars 2018
Worked here for two years and the 40 hr work weeks are miniscule. If overtime is wanted you must work 7 days a week which is terrible for life outside of the work place. Job security is great because they dont fire people easily.. which means workig with alot of airheads is a must. Management is absolutely terrible and they treat their employees badly. Can't make a good decision or practical one if it fell out of the sky and hit them in the face.
Machine maintenance is lacking due to patch and go work rather that root cause repair. Which means maintenance and production personell are constantly chasing Thier tails and it's very frustrating. On the upside they have a drastic turnaround rate so advancement in ranks is easily achieved so it's a good starter place but to be used as a stepping stone only.
Overall I would never work for this company again.

Labour intensive, busy work.
Labourer (Ancien employé) –  Chetwynd, BC6 mars 2018
Working in an industrial environment is usual a challenge. This job was very fast paced and labour intensive. While working mostly alone you must rely on others to keep their part off the mill running smoothly.
