I have been working at Catalyst Paper full-time (More than 3 years)
the guys you work with are great. the amount of time off is nice. some of the jobs have lots of variety in them.
middle management is pretty incapable of completing simple tasks. a lot of the old school culture there from some of the older employees is dragging the company down. No idea how long the company will exist for.
Advice to Management
invest in another TG and start selling power back to bc hydro. make some kind of a gesture to show that the company is trying to make a run at longterm sustainability and not just making as much money as possible for 10 or so years before closing up shop.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Catalyst Paper (Crofton, BC) in December-2014.
