And the only advancement is the pay.
This position will demonstrate sound people management and utilize technical problem solving and reliability tools to maintain and improve the site's production equipment, infrastructure, and utilities.
The company has given me the opportunity to serve as the sustainability representative for my location—Lewiston, Idaho. In this capacity, I have had the chance to work with employees companywide and interact with the Avista Technical Advisory Committee and represent the company by speaking at site-wide meetings and external industry conferences.
The pay is good, you get a good amount of vacation after being there for a year, but your outside life will suffer and you will be stressed because of a job that should not be stressing you.
The company also has provided excellent mentoring experiences and opportunities for me to professionally develop and become more knowledgeable in my chosen career field. Working at Clearwater Paper provides an opportunity to enrich your career through challenging and meaningful work and ongoing training and development—all in a supportive environment.
You will be an operator on the production floor your entire time there unless you have some type of degree or get lucky enough to obtain one of the few off the floor jobs, but honestly this is highly unlikely.
What do you like most about working at Clearwater Paper? Very difficult to come to work everyday and see salary barely working a full week in a month, but they have no consequences.
Management is horrible and constantly changing. Hourly employees do not receive any kind of bonus but there is one in place for salary, as long as the hourly do their job.
