    I worked at Domtar as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Domtar is a good place to work as an intern. People are nice to work with and helpful. Pay is good for an intern compare to other companies.

    Cons

    I really can not think of anything bad about Domtar. I wish that there was an opening so I could get a job.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. The people are great throughout all levels of the company. Management truly cares and there is opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    A policy for sick days would be recommended, as there currently isn't a policy in place. Other than that, no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    We have a great leadership team and they welcome feedback from all levels to help the business and people grow. Keep it up.
