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 – June 9, 2015
Pros: Good people to work with
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 – December 21, 2014
Pros: work life balance.
Cons: i cant think of any.
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 – May 13, 2014
Pros: going to different places
Cons: dusty at times
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.
