Horrible experience, management are bullies, they push people beyond their capabilities, making for a very dangerous unhappy environment.
Production Worker (Ancien employé) –  Edson, AB11 novembre 2017
Management bully the employees pushing beyond anyone's capabilities. Change your shift constantly since they only require to give you 24 hours notice to do so. Refuse holidays all year long because they are short staffed because everyone quits after realizing how dangerous and stressful of an environment it is. Unorganized CHAOS I would not recommend working here!
Points positifs
Wage
Points négatifs
Management, Safety, Safety violations are treated different for every employee.

Horrible experience truly traumatizing.
Maintenance Worker (Employé actuel) –  Edson, AB13 octobre 2017
Review summary explains it aside from the crew which is amazing nothing else exciting about this place it will suck the life out of you as it did to me no matter how hard I try to be a really good employee in every way they still bring you down and make you feel useless, and have no care for accomodating employees, declining holidays all year because they do not have coverage or changing shifts last minute to avoid paying overtime for coverage, even not allowing to go see family in need because they changed schedule last minute and did not have coverage.
Points positifs
Good Co-workers that keep each other and the place going
Points négatifs
Management, Unorganized chaos, Short staffed/Way over worked, Everything other then co-workers really

Its alright
Labourer (Ancien employé) –  70 Mile House, BC22 mai 2017
Good place to have a weekend job in grade 12 to get money for post secondary, but not really a place you should stay for the rest of your life unless you have a family or something.

Positive work environment,
Mechanical Engineering Summer Student (Ancien employé) –  Slave Lake, AB25 mars 2017
I worked one summer at Slave Lake Pulp. It was a great opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge gained at BCIT. My coworkers at Slave Lake Pulp all demonstrated high levels of aptitude and enthusiasm towards their positions. They all came to the work place with a positive attitude and with the initiative that they can make a difference.

Great work culture

Hard job but the team is good
Machine Operator (Ancien employé) –  Edson, AB20 mars 2017
In this experience, I improved my English the job was more physical but the team was always here to support me when it was necessary.
It was a great experience for me moving from Quebec to Alberta even if It wasn't directly in my engineering field.

Has it's ups and downs
Millwright (Ancien employé) –  Edson, AB2 février 2017
Good place to work lots to do, just like anyplace it has its ups and downs. Every one on the floor try's to help one another in some way, if you have no help usually some one is able to give you a hand.

Fast paced but easy going work culture.
Production Operator (Employé actuel) –  Smithers, BC4 janvier 2017
Given how hard it can be to find a decent job even with a degree, West Fraser offers excellent job security and benefits including a pension plan for those willing to put up with a bit of wood dust on their clothes every day. Most of the stereotypical mill grunt jobs of old have been automated so todays video gamer generation can fit right in. The company offers very fair vacation entitlements based on years of completed service. While not the most exciting work field it does offer advancement opportunities for those with brains and ambition.
Points positifs
exc pay and benifits
Points négatifs
Can be excedingly boring

Hard work with good benefits
Production/ Spark Watch/ Clean Up (Employé actuel) –  Williams Lake, BC9 novembre 2016
J bar attendant so I walk back and forth straightening bins that wood drop in to and then proceed to drop onto floor chains when bin in full and ready to be stacked. Every 2 hours I switch after coffee break and do Strips. I do this while by placing thing strips of wood between each tier of lumber that is getting stacked and attempt to not get run out.
Points positifs
Occasional Free Lunches
Points négatifs
Hard and very laborious work

Overall pleasureable work environment. Great commoderie amungst the workers
Skilled Labourer (Employé actuel) –  Williams Lake, BC25 juillet 2016
I love working here; very kind and reasonable management, foreman, and workers =)
I have always been treated fairly. The hours are all different depending on what shift you choose. There is something for every lifestyle available. Being on call kinda sucks because you always have to wait around the phone to get hours. But once your on a signed bid job.. you are steady full time. There is very good benefits and pension packages. It is union as well, so there is a sense of protection as well.
Points positifs
Free dinner when records are broken
Points négatifs

Technical improvements created an ageing work force
Chief Engineer Quesnel Plywood (Ancien employé) –  Quesnel, BC9 juin 2016
The forest industry has been in decline for years. Plywood was being replaced with Oriented strand board. The timber supply was questionable because of Bug infestation. Capital projects were non existing as an available log could be sent to the most profitable mill.
Points positifs
WFT was located in a small community
Points négatifs
The future of the lumber industry was always in doubt.

A productive and healthy company
Technical & Energy Manager (Ancien employé) –  Slave Lake, AB28 février 2016
Again the job is very diverse with the main focus on process engineering, the laboratory and energy management. The day varies but could include anything in these functional areas.

Great place to work
Clean Up Personnel (Employé actuel) –  Williams Lake, BC26 novembre 2015
Excellent wage compared to other mills in town. Its a hard job but worth the pay. This job paid my way through school and I would recommend it to any students who are looking to work part time.

Good Job Security/Bad Advancement
Operator (Employé actuel) –  Quesnel, BC19 novembre 2015
You are treated as replacable, but they are unlikely to fire you even if you do a bad job (if you are in the union). Just remember to move up in the company you need to work there forever, kiss management's behind and back stab people.

Take care of YOURSELF and your crew because other people don't care about you, only the bottom line.

Salary is good, but don't expect oil patch wages.
Points positifs
food
Points négatifs
management, advancement
