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.

    Current Employee - Engineer in Brunswick, GA (US)
    Current Employee - Engineer in Brunswick, GA (US)

    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The Brunswick Cellulose site is a great workplace with extremely friendly people at all levels. The work is challenging and meaningful for the most part. Virtually unlimited possibilities for career development as all of Koch Industries Inc. is available to employees for internal transfer. Pay is well above average and after being there for a few years there is potential for an annual bonus as well.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not good for those who are in the process controls group or operations groups. Leadership is placed on a 5-week rotation for weekend call duty and the mill is very dependent upon salaried support. This means that very few weekend call shifts go by without having to spend a portion of the weekend at work. As with most employers, time-off and flexible hours is completely dependent on the boss--official policy is no flex hours even if you have to work a night or weekend. Leadership manages safety by requiring everyone to enter a "leading indicator" each month, even if it is "Thanked my coworker for working safely today".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved with employee safety rather than focusing on "leading indicator" entry. Improve organizational capability to that salaried folks don't have to spend their nights and weekends at work solving unplanned breakdowns and equipment failures.
