    I have been working at Weyerhaeuser full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone that works at corporate HQ is very nice. There are lots people who have been working there for 20+ years. I work with someone who has been there over 30 years. So many old timers mean they value their employees. They also still have a pension plan!

    Cons

    I have not experienced any yet. However I have not been there long.

    Advice to Management

    Talk with regular employees, don't just sit up in your offices everyday!

    I have been working at Weyerhaeuser full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits negotiated through collective bargaining with the union eases the worries about retirement and health care costs.

    Cons

    Weyerhaeuser was at one time a family owned and operated company and the employees were part of the family. Now that its a huge corporation it purely financially driven.

    Advice to Management

    Step back, take a deep breath and think about what makes making money possible. Productive, happy, healthy employees!

    I have been working at Weyerhaeuser full-time

    Pros

    I know I would be great at this job because I've done everything they describe in their requirements for so many years.

    Cons

    Probably just getting acclimated to a new environment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't miss out on this guy. I have the knowledge, experience, and leadership skills to perform this position at a very high level. I also am self motivated. So I need very little direction. Outstanding communication skills. I never miss work. Follow PTA policies as required.

    I worked at Weyerhaeuser full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Focus on production goes hand-in-hand with support to all personnel. The quality of work is based on the quality of workers and they use local people in their facilities to support the community and ensure the workers have a vested interest in both the community and the company.

    Cons

    Very few - harsh conditions due to the facility being a large plant that makes a product requiring heat and loud equipment. However, all necessary actions are taken to make employees as comfortable as possible to prevent heat stress and hyperthermia!

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the consistency of the safety and production focus on the facility and workers. Listen to them when they have concerns and do what you can to abate any problems when they are little before they get worse and employees lose confidence in management.
