Rayonier Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Rayonier Inc, headquartered in Wildlight, Florida, is a timberland real estate investment trust ("REIT") with assets located in some of the most productive softwood timber growing regions in the United States and New Zealand. Its core business segments are timber and real estate.
A former Management Trainee from Greater Noida listed some of the cons in a review published by INDEED about his experience working for Rayonier Inc: "Not goof for freshers, Contractual roles, Limited growth options, Not enough opportunities, Not recommended"
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) says"this place sells you on safety until production is going south. high probability of breathing in harmful chemicals. Good pay with pretty terrible hours."
Lab Tech/Chip Tester (Former Employee) says"I learned to work on different projects. I enjoyed my co-workers. My typical day consisted of quality control. I evaluated samples and ran test."
IT Auditor / Consultant Manager (Former Employee) says"Rayonier owns, leases or manages 2.6 million acres of timberlands across nine states and New Zealand. Its core business includes timberlands management, land holdings, Real Estate, and manufacturing of paper products."
Operations Administrator (Former Employee) says"New England company moved to Southern business community trying to fit in to a relaxed work environment of the south. A little stuffy with suit and ties and indoor voice atmosphere. Overall a good corporation with great career succession planning and good benefits."
Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) says"My coworkers were great, the benefits were great. A con would be some people out in the field would complain to management about Accounts Payable before asking questions. Sometimes we had reasons for things that we did, usually instructed by auditors."
Current Employee - Associate says"None can be mention at this time since it's great"
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Rayonier cares much more about production and productivity than it does about employees. Employees commonly work very long hours and over weekends and holidays. It is common for employees to be performing tasks and roles that would normally be handled by 2 or more individuals. Work/Life balance is non-existent. Not an enjoyable place to work."
Former Employee - Associate says"No respect no pay on time"
Former Employee - Trainee says"Management lies to employees constantly. You don't know who to trust or who to speak to. You're scolded for trying to point out obvious things that are safety concerns and need Improvement. They are unionized but the union is very weak. They recently adopted a new labor contract stating that all new hires will forfeit 20% of their starting salary for the first two years of employment. In exchange for that the existing members that have worked there for a good link. Of time gain a bonus week of vacation and sick leave each year. I don't agree with the policies in the way the corporation is ran as a whole."
says"Zero work life balance. Leadership is terrible. You will be on the road a lot using your own vehicle. You are looked down upon for wanting to have a life outside of work. Worst company I have ever worked for. No HR department."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Will not gain expertise at anything. Politics driven."
Current Employee - Mechanic/Welder says"Not enough qualified skilled people who run this company. Especially in the Maintenance Department. Human resource department makes all decisions concerning the mill, from discipline to what amount of money can be spent on keeping equipment up to date and running properly and the cost to maintain a good operating plant. They are lacking man power in the maintenance department and refuse to hire new employees, especially when they have lost more than 50% of their employees to retirement. To many Chief's and not enough Indians as the saying goes."
says"Outdated systems, poor training for new employees, THE SMELL at the pulp mills, poor performance awards, lack of understanding when it comes to taking days off for family or medical related appointments, shortage or resources creates a large unmanageable workload."
says"It's all about preserving the dividend."
says"With new management came their old ways of treating people. Almost overnight, employees (especially long term) were treated with a great deal of disrespect. There was no acknowledgement of the fact that these folks had been doing something right, as Rayonier was one of the survivors in the forest products industry."
