Operator (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 29 June 2016
Co-Workers were great but since it was a union job it was difficult to befriend people. if someone got laid off they could take over other peoples position thewn that other person would do the same to someone else.
I loved Operating the Grizzly I was great at it. I learnt how to operate the Skid-steer and the Fornt end Loader.
electrician (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 10 November 2015
I enjoyed my time working for BFI it was well organized and problems you had were dealt with as soon as reasonably possible. Supervision was easy to work with as well as the managers. But it was short term construction work.
The job was messy and stinky, but the people I worked with were all down to earth and nice to work with.
Line Sorter (Former Employee) – Bracebridge, ON – 9 June 2015
I found the duties very repetitious and the environment was hot and stinky (working with garbage all day). The rotating shifts were a little difficult to get used to and adjust life to. I learned a lot about the recycling business. My co-workers were all very good to work with -- it seemed like everyone was there to work. The young and old all got along the same way. The hardest part of the job being bent over a conveyor belt all day. The smell, too, could sometimes be overwhelming. The most enjoyable part of the day was the people I worked with -- they made the time pass quickly.
Cat haul truck operator (Former Employee) – Fort Mcmurray – 21 December 2014
BFI has always been good to work for. Newer Equipment. Usually a 5/5/5 Schedule or 14 and 7. Not bad for work and life balance. Paid weekly and usually busy during winter months for reclaimation. They sometimes give the option of taking a layoff after march for those that want the summer off. Nothing bad to say about these guys.
Driver Front End Loader (Former Employee) – Concord ON – 13 May 2014
Picking up and dumping industrial garbage bins with a front end loader, various clients and routes, co-workers were a lot of fun , enjoyed being my own boss on the road. I knew what I had to do and I did my job to the letter.
