Overall reviews at Canfor
Trimmer | Houston, BC | Nov. 12, 2018
It is a good union job but its just not what im looking for anymore and many people are stuck in a rut there and are unable to get other employment due to a lack of training offered by Canfor

Good pay for the work
Right type of person can advance and quickly gain experience in multiple sectors. Learned how to operate multiple pieces of fixed as well as large heavy mobile equipment

A good place to work !
Went to work for Canadian forest products for what was supposed to be 2 weeks. I am still employed as an independent contractor 2.5 years later. I really enjoy working for Canfor Chetwynd. Management and co-workers are top notch.
Optimization Manager | Cranbrook, BC | Apr. 24, 2018
Great company to work for.
If times are good lots of opportunity to design project and get satisfaction from seeing work work benefit the company.
However when lumber prices drop this part quickly disappears.

Love the fast paced environment
I had great experiences here as well as terrible ones. I love the variety of tasks available. if your interested in learning each peice of machinary, you can. The management has Ironfist mentality with little sense of comradery and grace. The social structure did not accommodate me and lead to my termination.

Maintenance Planner | Radium, BC | Apr. 2, 2015
Work 3 days weekend
Work on weekends and have the week off. I have a designated machine center that I am totally responsible for. Receive our work orders for the work that needs done in our areas. Bosses are great there very helpful in all aspects. The guys are very friendly and helpful and easy to work with. The hardest part is not been able to communicate with the workers in my area and find out what they are having troubles with and how I could hep them to make there work easier. My enjoyment of the job is knowing that what I do helps the area run the following week with non to little problems.
Proswork 3 days have 4 days off
Consnot having my weekends off

productive work place
The job was great, good money, decent bosses, never a dull moment. except the other employees were lazy and to "tired" to be working so hard. how ever i never let that stop me, i worked my little butt off and now i know the defference between hard works and lazy people.
