Pros: ....???? i survived... boiler lead was huge support and great guy
Cons: everything from safety to bosses. and pay
I moved my family to Saint Maries and was told what I wanted to hear. "great workplace with good safe culture and good pay" Pay was not good at all. I made more than most but still was not enough even to survive. Had all kinds of issues with Medical insurance, corporate was not helpful at all. Safety culture was the worst I have ever seen and Management did nothing about it. I wrote many work orders about machines missing guards, water that would poor into MCC breakers for so long it had rotten them away. I am very surprised that the plant has not been shut down by OSHA!! I would not wish anyone even my worst enemy to work here. I hope This helps people into deciding to stay away from STIMSON LUMBER. They are not good to there employees but many stay because they don't know anything else but Saint Maries.
Finally one statement that a boss told me that it cost nothing to change actions and there was no money to have safety equipment to prevent personnel and equipment from damage. He basically told me that it was worth the risk of my safety than it was to spend $45.
