Worked in quality... machine operators to supervision to upper management didn't care about the garbage they sent to customers... nor about the cost of returns and investigations. Austin who above supervision as production manager cared more for less waste then quality of product.. just like joey the big boss... Less downtime more important then quality... Thats why they losing so many big companies and continue getting complaints from customers. nobody there cares about trash they sending out!
operators to supervision to upper management like Austin and Joey - Ignore Quality issues
Vary good management work is siloed and on going. Can’t think of a better place to grow. There really isn’t a down side to GP the pay is good the people are awesome most of all the work is vary easy to learn. I’ve had a great experience at Georgia Pacific
GP is a good company with good people. They/we are making efforts to get even better! The benefits are competitive. The work is challenging but you are able to be successful and feel good about your hard work and efforts.
They really need to improve the screening process for hiring. That also includes management. I've seen engineers that were worth their weight in gold, be swept aside and given no regard whatsoever. This company runs them through like cattle, which I guess is for some kind of tax break program. Its pretty ridiculous.
Drove 45 min at 4:30 every morning to work from 6 to 2:30, the work was tough but easy once you got the hang of it, my manager was very caring and understanding and the work environment was laidback and the comradery was great
Horrible, don't work at GP!! I would never want anyone to work at GP. They don't value employees unless you are a kiss up.. They are not family or employee friendly. They don't care what an employee has to say.
Their only concern is producing lumber.
They don't care about the schedule. If you are on maintenace you can not leave until the mill is back up and running. I've been there for 18 hours straight before, with only 2 short breaks just to eat and get back to work. Production workers, supervisors, and managers get to go home and leave maintenace there to work all night. Favoritism and the good ol boy system runs rampant.
Job itself wasn’t bad but there’s a buddy system out there if your not in it you get treated unfairly. Lead personal talk behind your back and are very unprofessional and are two faced should not be in any leadership role they could careless just as long as they get the last word
Less is more ! They believe in getting more work with less people. They will have one person doing a job that four people should be doing. The employees are like family we see each other more than our real family..
If you don’t mind working in fiberglass at least 2 days a week then it’s a great place to work . That plus Seniority gets first choice on OT . The wages are fair for the area . When I was there it was $ 22 hour it could be more now . All and all not a bad place to work . The people are great and helpful.
I worked at GP Palatka, Fl. as a shift supervisor. The company was great and good benefits, however I needed a job with regular hours. The Mill runs 24/7 and you only work 14 days per month however the days and hours vary 6-6 am/pm you do 7 days of each per month some weekends. These hours just apply to the operators and supervisors.
