    I worked at Stimson Lumber Company full-time for more than 8 years


    Nice management, many incentives, clean safe place to work


    Sometimes the company has to close for a couple weeks around the holidays. Sometimes this can be hard to meet bills. So it's important to plan ahead.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Stimson Lumber Company.

    Interview Details

    5 interviews as 500 prospectors applied. The final interview was a competition between 5 other interviewees. I was not intimidated but many others were. This process may not still be used but it was in 2000 when I applied. My past experience is what gave me the edge.
