    I worked at Domtar full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Company Focused on Family and Employee's, Very Good Benefits

    Cons

    Has changed since restructure. Had a very bad boss and they seem to protect management. They struggled with focus and kept changing direction which was hard for the next level to get results. They will be going through this again for the next 1-2 years with the new focus, This stuff happens as a company tries to reinvent itself in a very mature market. Focus will continue to shift to personal care.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate clearly to all levels. Avoid so many secrets. If a manager continues to have a bad team year after year. It may not be the employees... evaluate how you are measuring middle management. Act on survey feedback from employees.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Domtar (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was a person to person interview, the general questions. They really looked over my resume and asked me about just about everything on it. The interview was fairly long, they asked at what plant I would want to work at and what ideas I could bring to Domtar.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe the scholarships/awards you received in college. What made you pursue these instead of others?   Answer Question
