Very stressful atmosphere
Dispatcher (Former Employee), EdmontonFebruary 6, 2013
Pros: a free lunch once in a while
Cons: huge staff turnover. management control.
Training was terrible. Management new very little of what was actually happening around them. Constant staff turnover. Office staff has no patience for someone new. People were forced to leave due to office politics. Drivers were always miserable and constantly complaining. Customers were treated with little respect. Money was poor considering the amount – more... of hours you had to work. People were hired for positions they had no business in. Over all, Do yourself a huge favour and stay away. – less

Okay job. Terrible management.
Driver (Former Employee), Penticton, BCJuly 19, 2012
Pros: wages are reasonable with plenty of available overtime.
Cons: "garbage" management team. poor working conditions.
I worked for this company for over a year. The wages were decent, but thin compared to other outfits, and according to working conditions. The company is not managed well, which leads to poor spending of company finances, long working days (which depending if you are a overtime keener or not is a good or a bad thing), sub-par safety policies, and often – more... very tense working environments. Many of the workers are good people, as well as customers are for the most part grateful of the work done. – less

I had to multi-task on the job and meet dealines and prioritize daily job responsibilities. The management team was very easy going and professional. BFI Canada was a corporate environment and I enjoy working in that type of environment. My co-workers were all very friendly, resourceful, and always worked as a team. I never experienced any difficulties – more... on the job and enjoyed working here very much. – less

Operator 1 (Former Employee), Campbell River, BCFebruary 28, 2012
Pros: great benifits
Cons: lack of loyalty
In my years working with a company so large I found that all the employee's are just a number. If things are not going well they do what ever it takes to make things better. In my case it was they come into our yard one day and told us that this division was being closed and that we were to pack our stuff and leave. This was effective ASAP. The two – more... bosses that came and told my co-worker and I stayed there and waited for us to pack our things and leave. What a good feeling it was, I have put 5 yrs into this company to basically get slapped in the face. I would like to thank BFI for this though because I have become a better person over this and now that I am worth something. – less

micro management
