Work schedule sucks, two weeks day shift then rotate to two weeks night shift. 7:30 - 7:30 Other than the schedule, it is not a bad place to work, always dirty and always hot. Have to work outside some, rain snow or sun.

you can expect to work a lot of hours at this company, but that was because of the union protecting people who would show up late every day for 3 years and not fire them, money was pretty good but they ran the stuff out of you, barely saw your family or kids

Weyerhaeuser is a fantastic place to work, with caring employers and employees. When I find another employer, I hope to find one closer to home so it is not such a long commute, but I do love my job and the company I work for I am very fortunate to have worked for them for ten years.
Process Engineer-Environmental (Former Employee) – Columbus, MS – June 19, 2018
A fun to place to work at times, but not so much most of the time due to the manager assigned to the group that I was assigned to. There was a lot of micro management occurring with the manager of the group which caused a lot of in fighting and controversy within the team. There was a good bit of bias and rumor mill mixed in as well. However, I learned a lot and I was able to use this bad experience as a stepping stone to move on to even greater opportunities.
Very competitive benfits and performance share bonuses.

Great place to work! Absolutely love it! They care about their employees and everyone really puts in 110% effort into making WY truly Great! It's continuous work but the atmosphere surrounding you makes the days worth it.

Don't make any long term financial commitments when working for this company and save every dime you can is the best advice I can give you if you choose to work for this company because it will likely be shut down with out any notice to you. Weyco. has left a trail of destruction of family's behind them here in the northwest US, closing down countless facility's. To them your just an employee number and a brain dead person with a pulse if you work production with little if any room for advancement. The hardest part of the job at Weyco. is just a terrible place to work if you have kids in school because most new people at best end up stuck on graveyard or at worst swing shift missing out seeing their children until the weekend and even then overtime can be mandatory. The work place culture before weyc..was once was production, production,production,be careful out there since back in the late 60s.We set production record's year after year when the market needed our product and would scale back with everyone getting a furlough day during the hard time's when our product was less demanded. Then after Weyco. came in and installed their "safety culture" our production went in the toilet! Trying to save a dime instead of making a dollar! And a short 5years later Weyco management said the plant wasn't profitable anymore and had to closed it down to make a long store short! So I will let you make the call about weyco. management style. The most enjoyable part of the job is your co-workers because all of you are in this together and want to make the best of it while itmore... last. Some of us still keep in touch to this very day.less
Your job depends on how the mill is running. Some days it is great the next its wide open from start to finish. Working here is great due to the team/ work family here. This is a special place in that regard.
Good pay for the area, Decent benifits, good work home balance, great co workers, Weyerhaeuser as a company has a lot of integrity.
Big, hot and dirty. Not a lot of advancment opportunities.

Most of the time you are required to work 50 to 60 hours and travel a lot. It used to be 40 hours and no travel. They add work to your day as a "stretch goal" or "opportunity for advancement" with no reward.
