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

    Pros

    New clean facility and seem that show signs of wanting to grow with the announcement of a new machine.

    Cons

    Management is insincere, fake and creepy.
    Don't seem to have a plan. Everything looks like it happens by the seat of the pants.
    Hire people because they have a degree, not because they are competent.

    Advice to Management

    Invent in robots if you don't want workers that think.

    Pros

    Potlatch Corp / Clearwater Paper has been around long time and had Experience Work Force many years with knowledge of machines and great leadership!

    Cons

    New CEO does not believe in Past Management and does not move up people within the Company! Turnover & moral is very low. They hire from outside and then do not manage them. No Work Flow Management is implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to Basic and and Stop implementing stupid programs that don't get followed up on. Develop Workflow Management with Roles & Responsibility. You ran off many Experienced Employees never giving them a chance.
