I worked at Cascades full-time (Less than a year)
Good job lots of old and new equipment good for a starting job/ boot allowance/ free uniforms/ great people/ good learning environment
Horrible shift style/ need new equipment/ bonus was horrible/ management can sometimes be to concerned with safety rather then listening to the workers who know what is safe and what is not.
Advice to Management
Update old equipment and safety was excellent when I was there
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cascades (Memphis, TN) in November 2015.
First did a telephone interview which went well enough that i was invited to the plant for a face to face interview. In my company research I knew this was a French Canadian owned company and the french would be a little more difficult to deal with. The plant is in the worst part of town so entering that area I would be very cautious. The plant is an old 50s era style papermill that;s been negliated . I toured the plant which was a mess with very little to no safety standards (no respirators, hearing protection etc). Everything was done by relying on a handful of experience people who knew knowledge equals power and one of my jobs would be to extract that knowledge and distribute it out to others. I knew it was a tall order but where it came to decision was if the company was going to let me fix the problems or just put a band aid on it..I sensed the latter and told them to continue interviewing other candiates
