    I worked at Canfor Pulp

    Pros

    -Very friendly work environment
    -Relaxing atmosphere
    -Respects your personal commitment/issues
    -Receptive for you to work on whatever projects you like
    -People willing to help you if you know who to ask
    -Flexible deadlines

    Cons

    -No proper training program or guidelines for coops
    -You will continue to work on laboratory testing or other routine work (meaning no new learning opportunity) unless you take the initiative to find a project yourself to work on

    Advice to Management

    The coops are generally really enthusiastic about the work and learning about the industry. There should be a proper training program or at least some guidelines so Canfor itself can benefit from hiring these coops.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    stable employment in a great area, many community programs for families in sports, recreation, schooling, etc.
    Company gives at least a moderate effort to ensure safe working conditions for employees

    Cons

    lack of appreciation for any extra done by hourly workers, a lack of common sense in hiring of staff and management with a total disregard for hourly workers that seek such positions

    Advice to Management

    open up opportunities for workers to advance professionally and regularly discuss growth and career direction
