    Working at Norbord is good, but it is a tough industry with ups and downs like any other company would have though.

    I have been working at Norbord

    Pros

    Norbord has a very competitive benefits plan, they offer good time off policy as well, if you work in the mill you just have to find someone to cover for you, much like the hospital industry, this business runs 24/7. They offer competitive pay as well and have realistic expectations and know what the focus needs to be on.

    Cons

    The working conditions for the mill workers is tough, they have hot summers and the work as mentioned is 24/7, with the nature of the business that can be tough for some to adjust to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that in order to get excellence, you have to have some flexibility with the mill workers and they need to continue to feel valued, so it is good to spend time in the mill talking to the people, not just walking around looking at things. It appears they are really trying to improve relations at this company

    I worked at Norbord

    Pros

    They treat employees with respect, deadlines are reasonable, benefits are good, compensation is competitive, people there are tenured which indicates little turnover.

    Cons

    Lack of communication in assignments, change is bad, oftern people scatter when something goes wrong, not a lot of leadership in assigning projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instill proactiveness and continuous improvement for all its salaried employees, have the corporate office communicate more with the mills, diffuse the turf mentality within the mills.
