      I worked at Timber Products Co. full-time

      Pros

      Awesome co workers. Good solid work to make someone busy for an entire shift.

      Cons

      No real management. Uppers don't care about the workers.

      Advice to Management

      Get your stuff together. Y'all give no direction to your employees.

      I worked at Timber Products Co. full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Easy work load, non-technical, good union/company relationship, good pay.

      Cons

      Easy work load, "run to failure maintenance", management runs plant with fear and intimidation, production is always over safety no matter what they tell you but it's a safe place to work. Dead end job that will pay the bills. Good-ole-boy system alive and well.

      Advice to Management

      Invest in your people with training and ease up on the "us/them" attitude.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Timber Products Co. full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      You won't find better employees! They are committed to making this company a survivor in the industry.

      Cons

      NO leadership, no direction or plan. Poor management has this once great company in a death spiral.

      Advice to Management

      Promote from within! You need experienced leaders who possess problem solving skills on the floor. Not recent college grads with a degree in European Literature! STOP hiring the 'blue light special,' who only brings a line of bs to steer this ship.

      I worked at Timber Products Co. full-time

      Pros

      People are great. Good environment except for back lab. Great entry level position.

      Cons

      Work can be very intense if working in the dirty lab. Must be able to multitask and learning it while learning the job is hard. Lab Manager Pay is low.

      Advice to Management

      Must get better training practices.
