A career in wood products is sure to be fulfilling—no matter the path you take.

A Focus on Training

At Timber Products, there are a number of career paths an employee can take. Production employees most often start in entry-level positions and, with time, can move into more skilled manufacturing positions or supervisory roles. With salaried employees, there are a number of roles and responsibilities one may initially start with, and then over time such employees will often have opportunities to expand their responsibilities.

“Timber Products Company helps employees grow by offering a variety of training and educational opportunities,” explains Bill Nevell, VP of Human Resources.

Regardless of how an employee prefers to learn, there are boundless opportunities to broaden knowledge. “It might be going back to school to earn a degree—or attending a seminar or workshop,” said Nevell.

If there is a desire to go back to school, Timber Products' tuition reimbursement program allows employees to earn their degree. “Timber Products encourages continued education,” said Lynn Morris, Human Resources Manager. “If they’re seeking a degree that’s job-related, we support that.”

Encouraging Employee Growth

Several specific programs within Timber Products Company help employees who want to grow. Many employees have attended Dale Carnegie training classes to hone their skills, and Timber Products also has an in-house Leadership University that helps train employees for management roles. While at Leadership University, personnel move from facility to facility learning about their operations. By the end, they are more prepared for a role with supervisory responsibilities.

“Employees are encouraged to explore new positions,” said Nevell. One employee who began at Grants Pass in a production role transitioned into a scheduler, then used the tuition reimbursement program to attain his degree and ultimately was chosen for a controller position for Timber Products.

“We supported him, and now he’s doing a great job for us in his current role,” said Nevell.
