Extremely productive and motivational seeing everyone working together
entry level (Former Employee) – Emerson, AR – January 25, 2016
A typical day at work is just that work nothing difficult about the processes, I go in do what I was trained to do to my full ability. Working their showed me a lot, taught me how to work better with others and push myself to extreme measures.Management was great, always making sure the employees comprehended the daily assignments and the responsibilities. My co-workers were a helping hand when needed. The hours was the hardest but after I adjusted my sleeping pattern the long hours didn't affect me.I enjoyed learning new ways to overcome problems and obstacles whenever I did come across one.

I learned how to multitask and negoitiate dealing with people. I also was the "go to" person and was assigned more responsibilites as time went on. The company was wonderful to me when I had to take a medical leave. Tey were very supportive of me.
Accountant II (Current Employee) – Federal Way, WA – May 12, 2015
I have worked here for 2 years and it have been a rollercoaster ride with layoffs and moving to Seattle but I enjoyed it.You will learn so much about trees it is amazing but quite interesting. The compensation is average, pay is good for the area but benefits and vacation are not great. The company tries to do things throughout the year to keep employees involved such as a yearly picnic and a diaper drive. Good place to work but it is unfortunately they will be leaving the beautiful campus and building behind in Federal Way and moving to the crowded area of Seattle.
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Columbus, MS – April 22, 2015
My time there was very enjoyable. I have always enjoyed interaction with others and this job afforded me that opportunity. All of the workers there were always very professional and easy to work with, therefore making my time there a very nice experience. The atmosphere there was usually very hectic and I was fine with this, as I do much better in those situations.
Easy working atmosphere, good fellow employees and good benefits.
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Natchitoches, LA – April 21, 2015
A good company to work for. Very safety conscious, and great benefits for the family. The pay is satisfactory as well. I've learned how to manage with a short crew, during stressful times, and have succeeded in all that has been in front of me.
Dedicated to a safe work environment and quality products.

Fun working environment with interesting co-workers
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Federal Way, Washington – February 20, 2015
There was never a typical day at Weyerhaeuser. With each job I held there, there was always a surprise or unexpected issues that needed to be addressed. As Admin I spent many days scheduling complex meetings...anything from One-on-One meetings to entire Department meetings...organizing all meetings logistics as well.
My co-workers were the best bunch of people I've ever had the pleasure to work with. I still keep in touch with many of them.
Although I held a few different positions within Weyerhaeuser, my jobs never ended there. I would pitch in wherever necessary to ensure that things got done.
Accountant & Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Federal Way, WA – January 28, 2015
A typical day at work includes socializing and collaborating with coworkers. I learned much about collaboration, leadership styles, and how to do more with less resources. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with good people.
Good opportunity for experience, poor work culture
Associate Engineer (Former Employee) – Longview, WA – January 23, 2015
I was an Associate Engineering. I thought the pay was reasonable, but I found myself committing most of my life to this stressful work environment (which I expected, so I wasn't too shocked). I normally would have no issue with this, but their was no sense of gratification that came along with it. The engineering and process managers were fantastic; they cared a significant amount about their employees and process. Though the bureaucratic structure of this large company seemed to always interfere with getting work done.
There was some definite need for improvement in the Associate's program. If I was not an outgoing individual, I could have sat at my desk for months without anyone caring.
The culture at the mill just seemed lost. Many employees were not motivated enough to do their job well. Others were very argumentative. More gossip than a high school hallway. Ultimately, the vibe didn't match my personality.
Ending on a plus side, I think it is a great place to work and gain some useful experience. There are plenty of advancement opportunities as well. If that's the market you're in, I would at least try Weyerhaeuser out.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Westland, MI – January 15, 2015
Typical day was providing accurate and timely orders filled with treated lumber and building material products to all the Home Depot stores in Michigan and Northern Ohio. The hardest part of the job was learning all the material provided to the different lumber yards across Michigan. Co-workers and Management had a good working relationship and good communication between each other.
