Labourer (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 9 September 2017
A typical day included sorting through our city's recycling, cleaning loading and organizing. Workers in this position typically earned $13, from $10 after a union was brought in, due to some previously unsavory work practices and management. Unfortunately management is still unqualified with workers assigning their own tasks, and operating machines with no prior training or supervision. The job is still extremely hazardous, with workers on the line exposed to needles, sharp glass, soiled laundry, human and animal waste, dangerous construction materials such as asbestos, acids, concrete dust etc, without the proper protective equipment such as water proof gloves or mandatory respirators. Would not recommend working with this company if you value your health.
Above minimum wage, long hours
very hazardous, low morale, bad supervision and management
A waste management company that thrives on slave labour
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 19 July 2016
There is no company culture or values to speak of. The top management is always chasing the latest fad in the industry. It became "big" at the expense of its employees and smaller competitors. Equipment and facilities are outdated. Management has no concern for the workers. The company bought out its competitors for pennies to the dollar. For the homeless, working there as swampers or sorters is better than having no income at all.
Driver loader (Former Employee) – London, ON, Brantford ON – 3 March 2016
I worked... No wait slaved here for what felt like an eternity. Summer was 55 plus hours a week. Winter was over 75 hours a week. Outdated unsafe equipment, horrible management... And as for Emmy...if you're desperate then I guess. But there's a lot better places to work.
You don't matter in anyway shape or for, if you drop dead you're replaced and forgotten instantly.
