Former Employee - Line Take Off Forklift Op/Shipping Loader in Surrey, BC

I worked at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

I previously state Geogia Pacific take their safety to the highest level. As well as in a greviance situation there is always a fair compromise usually worked out.

Cons

Biggest concern I have for the local Plant - Edmonton Alberta, they had no problem letting the facility go on s six month strike, while management was force to run the board line/crossing the picket line.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more consistent with knowing the ground floor workers. Remember, U hired human being with different stories to life and really try to understand: you work with what you get. Maximize this realization and the crew dynamics go up and so does work effort/attitude.

    I worked at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Results driven, and embraces the free market. A lot of experienced and dedicated co-workers at all levels.

    Cons

    "At risk" facilities often operate out of fear rather than to grow. i.e. short term decisions rather than long-term strategies. A lot of management turnover (something like 4 plant managers in the last 4 years, and almost all of the salaried managers have been at the site fewer than three years). This is, however, a function of the "at risk" label. I was able to train in multiple other locations, where there was a significantly more stable management environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure management hires are given the whole picture when offers are extended.
