Poor management, too much overtime, no family balance,
Not Applicable (Current Employee) –  Kingsport, TNSeptember 16, 2017
Heavy industrial setting with large production demands. Very physical workwith high mental stress. 24/7/365. Rotating shifts, mandatory overtime, cancelled off days, Highly compensated and premium benefits.
Poor communication, poor management, lack of integrity, high pay, co-workers (not management) are like family, union presence makes environment difficult. No work life balance.

Sales Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Fort Mill, SCSeptember 12, 2017
Domtar is a fair company and offers a good salary and benefits. Can be hectic at times but mostly just a steady routine. There is a bit of favoritism shown at times.

No clear direction. Lack of communication. Upper management completely disconnected from reality and happenings in the mill. Has become very political!

good workplace as long as you aren't with the contractors.
Summer Intern, painter (Former Employee) –  Bennettsville, SCAugust 3, 2017
You will meet all kinds of people at domtar, i personally worked with the ppm crowd, which is basically the construction crew, they are exactly what you'd expect, cruel jokes, dirty, nosy, and allow others to treat women poorly. I had trouble with some of the guys and finally told the supervisor and nothing was done to them or about it, just basically a slap on the wrist and told to stop, which they didn't. the domtar employees are much more enjoyable to be around, people who have manners and a good sense of right and wrong.
Pros
great pay
Cons
harassment, dirty, cruel jokes/pranks

Long hours, lots of downtime.
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Waco, TXJuly 27, 2017
This job was very inconsistent at times depending on where you were placed at. You could have up to 4 hours of downtime a day on your line if your technicians were having problems with the machine on your line. You got 3 breaks and a lunch break which was nice.
Pros
four 30 minute breaks, including lunch.
Cons
Lots of downtime, long hours.

Workforce had a very "non-management attitude" Anyone going above what was expected was looked down upon. Opportunity for advancement was dependent on tenure only.

union mentality

Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Ashdown, ARJune 19, 2017
Go in as an hourly person you have it made, other than having to work shift work. Would recommend to anyone as far as that goes if they don't mind that aspect. Will she be running in 10 years?? Who knows.

Millwright/Pipefitter (Current Employee) –  Port Huron, MIApril 13, 2017
This is a place that has a good moral among it's employees, and that makes it an enjoyable company to work for.. They look out for your safety more than other places that I have heard of, and they are also looking out for your health. The incentives for safety and good health are a great encouragement to live a healthy lifestyle.
Pros
Big on safety and health
Cons
Pay out of pocket for your own healthcare.
