    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, plenty of hours available including overtime, room for raises/promotions.

    Cons

    Safety is preached, but not practiced, especially on graveyard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep tabs on graveyard crews, don't develop such an emphasis on production; it leads to compromises with a safety-oriented attitude.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Stimson Lumber Company (Gaston, OR).

    Interview

    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. Even though I never worked in the saw mill industry I did work fabricating CAE curv cutting saws used in saw mills.

    Interview Questions

    • The question that stands out the most was the last one. we were asked to explain what we would do in a situation where conflict between employees became heightened.   1 Answer
