Pros

A good place to gain experience in the wood products industry. Compensation and benefits are competitive for that industry.

Cons

Plant is run by a dictator which limits true teamwork. Knee jurk reactions to issues is common place.

Advice to Management

Define your plan to be employer of choice and implement. Just saying that you are, will never get you there.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good place to gain experience, decent commute, may have potential if competitors shut down some operations and the housing market improves.

    Cons

    There will not be any raises or bonuses most years, and vacation is at a minimum. Senior management and capital projects need upgrading to be competitive in the marketplace. Difficult cultural environment between French Canadians, Germans, and North Carolinians.

    Advice to Management

    Exit interviews should be taken more seriously and capital expenditures need to be increased dramatically in order to increase efficiency of productivity to level of competition.

    I have been working at Uniboard Canada full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Challenging fast pace environment. Wide variety of products promotes learning. Competitive salary, profit sharing and benefits plans. Flexible work hours

    Cons

    Not very well organized. Missing alignment at senior level. Decisions often appear to be short term and opportunistic. Work in silo does not promote teamwork across the organization. Missed opportunities and too many time-wasters. Work processes, roles and responsibilities are not properly defined.

    Advice to Management

    Common goals and improved communication of company long term vision would better align people and departments across the organization. Great potential exits! It would be beneficial for management to better understand work processes.
