      Horrible management

      May 27, 2021 - Supervisor in Espanola, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      If you live in Espanola, it's not a far drive to work. Also, it will make you appreciate your next employer much more.

      Cons

      Worst workplace politics I've ever seen. Poor decision making from the mill manager down. So many great employees have quit or been fired because upper management is constantly trying to cover up their mistakes. You would expect Corporate to step in but they seem to be just as inept. They also preach workplace safety but it's only to cover themselves if the ministry of labour gets involved. Safety issues are constantly brought up and management won't fix the problems, not a safe place to work. I could go on and on.
