    I worked at West Fraser Timber full-time (More than 5 years)


    I had a great job...its a shame I had to relocate! Lots of flexability!


    Not a whole lot of written policy...I'm not sure if that's good or bad. ;) The work could be tedious.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! You're doing a great job.

    Average Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at West Fraser Timber in March 2011.


    I was placed in the role on a trial basis to prove that I could actually do the job. I was a quick study and found new ways to track and monitor trends. After I produced positive numbers, I was awarded the job.
