Environmental Scientist II (Former Employee) – Columbus, MS – April 1, 2015
Amazing job experience. I worked for Weyerhaeuser for 5 years and was rewarded for proactive, motivated work. Insurance was high deductible plan but pay was amazing and staff was dedicated, motivated, and innovative. My supervisor was above parr and this company has amazing land and work ethics. Their environmental track record with regard to the land they manage and safety record were amazing. They were flexible with work hours and emphasized family first, then work.
LEAD ACCOUNTING ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Columbus, MS – October 27, 2015
A typical workday was spent mostly on the computer,maintaining records and on the phone with numerous corporate representatives. Worked with great people on staff and management levels. Enjoyed communicating with people. Hardest part was departing with staff members who were always transferring out to other locations. Learned a lot about the business world.
Technician (Former Employee) – Federal Way, Wa – February 4, 2013
They say they like diversity but hire Mexicans as janitors, people from India for IT work and it took me at least 2 yrs to see one African Anerican working there. It was quite sterotypical to say the least.
They have been sued by EEOC for not promoting minorities in their Bellevue office and lost. I've seen quite a few people forced to retire and younger folks leaving for better opportunites after being hired only a short period of time. The shorter time you stay there the better because it's against policy to give any sort of reference when you leave.
pretty campus and decent benefits
high pressure, inappropriate management behavior, no reference policy, lack of minority opportunities, pay increases based on statistics and not performance, and they quit doing any morale boosters even before the economy tanked
Outside Sales for Home Improvement Warehouse (Former Employee) – Gulfport, MS – June 25, 2015
the job were giving compassion to their employees after Katrina this company help me rebuild my home for over a year with Weyerhaeuser volunteers sent down every 2 weeks. Management was just very good in my 12 yrs I had 4 managers. The co workers were helpful team oriented and following up on customers. I worked with the Box stores traveling 3 states to train and sell in recycled products.
Great company to work for. Professionally grew my career path.
Assistant Manager of Human Resources (Former Employee) – Millport, AL – September 27, 2013
Great organization to work with. Great employees, management and corporate team. Learned so much about people/employees and how best to interact with each. Recieved positive recognition that I used to grow professionally.
Weyerhaeuser was a great place to work, on site fitness centers, recreation, running trails, were all huge perks.
Health & Welfare Coordinator (Former Employee) – Federal Way, WA – September 18, 2014
I worked 8-10 hours a day and loved my job, benefit, my co-workers, and customers I worked with. I believed in the company and the products, innovation, and professionalism found at all levels. The company had a long time, solid foundation in supporting the work life balance of it's employees, until the recent change in leadership which has shifted it's philosophy on the topic drastically.
on site fitness centers, recreation, running trails, were all huge perks and a big contributor to morale.
those perks are unlikely to be available when they move to seattle.
General Laborer (Former Employee) – Rockford, IL – August 18, 2014
Would run a Flexo machine working with cardboard and to tare down and set up machines. I learned how to operate and run a Flexo machine and how to change dyes and cutters. Management was always there to lend a hand and was a beneficial part of me learning more on the job. Co-workers were supportive and easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was learning all 12 of the machines but I was proud that I did it. The enjoyable part was making rate and going above and beyond the expectations.
i was able to learn how to work the flexo machines to beable to advance
Dry Veneer Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Junction City, OR – April 3, 2012
This was the best job I've had. Far and away, the best coworkers and management I've had. Management that actually listens to its employees and will implement their ideas to create a smoother work process (if positively reviewed by a committee consisting of maintenance, one worker from each shift, management, and HR). Supervisors that would trust their employees' abilities to do their jobs and not hover all over or spy on you.
great work schedule (2 days on, 2 off, 3 on, 2 on, 3 off), hands-off management, competent coworkers
it was a dirty job, long shifts (12 hours, sometimes 13)
Enjoyable place to work where employees are treated with respect.
IT Data Specialist (Former Employee) – Federal Way, WA – February 12, 2013
At Weyerhaeuser people are treated as adults, management recognizes that everyone works as hard as possible but also have personal lives. I have learned so much during my 33 yrs experience with this company because I was able to have so many opportunities with different departments. The people I worked with were the best, not just co-workers but also became good friends.
no time-clock, or clock watchers, everyone is treated as an adult.
Fantastic company with fun and energized staff and employees
Document Controller (Former Employee) – Fort Mill, SC – July 24, 2013
Management was a delight to work for and made the work day a fun challenge. I learned the process and flows of engineering designs and the process to achieve a new plant (grass roots) and modifications to existing plants. The co-workers were always appreciative and respectful.
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – New Bern, NC – December 6, 2013
I grew up there. Spent 35 years of my life there. Worked in the "Timberlands" section, where we planted, managed, and protected the forests from insects, fire, and so much more. I moved from Jacksonville to New Bern, NC, where I trained and grew in education, computer uses, created and maintained many, MANY statistics, etc. It used to be a good place to learn and grow, but I've been away for many years, and am not familiar with the inner-workings now...
