At Great Lakes Forest Products, we believe working hard, smart and safely leads to success and a strong sense of pride. We also believe that this success should be shared with our team members. We like to “play” whether it is at a large company function or a smaller event such as rewarding our quarterly All Stars.
“Being a part of a company that cares about employees, provides great opportunity, and also keeps me learning new things every day is special to me. The details that we deal with on a daily basis keep us challenged and there is rarely a dull moment working with great people around us.”
“It is a privilege to be part of a company that embraces core values such as Family, Safety, and a Work Hard/Play Hard mentality. Throughout my career, I have experienced core values with other companies. With that being said, the core values that are instilled at Great Lakes Forest Products and the Smith Family are second to none and in my opinion, world class. It’s an honor to lead a group of talented individuals on a daily basis. We pride ourselves on working safely, taking care of one another, and celebrating our successes through the many incentive-based programs we offer. Opportunities for growth present themselves on a daily basis and we strive to promote within. The company has doubled in size from when I was hired in December of 2015. This is a sure sign of continued growth and opportunity for any employee willing to work hard and honor their commitments at GLFP.”
“I really enjoy the communication we have with the employees and the interaction during ShopTalks. I also like the opportunity to grow within the company.”
“I have had the opportunity to grow in my career at GLFP. I started at an entry level position, doing order entry. In time, I was moved to Inside Sales, and now I am scheduling production for 4 plants.”
