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

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

    Pros

    Looks good on resume. Plenty of opportunities to take on more challenges and get time in front of senior management. Company does a great job of training employees for the job.

    Cons

    Pay not comparable to the amount of work and time you put in. Low base pay and standard increases in pay over time (not based on value created as told). Company uses incentive compensation to distract employees from realizing they have a low base salary. Very few women and minorities in upper management and they aren't compensated as well if they are in the positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tap other employees for desirable promotions just because they are well known. Allow others to have a real chance at applying since these are likely the employees that are actually doing the most work. Don't force people to move to undesirable locations just to have a shot at moving up in the company later on if they are good talent.
