Very busy, interesting work day because of variety
Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Pickering, ON5 October 2017
If you like variety and are interested in learning a good place to start. Work/Life balance is hard, but that is the nature of this industry. Expect to work most holidays.

Poor Management
Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB28 May 2017
Was not a great experience. They expect you to complete 3 round trips to the dump regardless of and hickups you may receive, they still expect the same.
There are too many boss's not enough employees. One person wants you to do something the other wants something else of you.
Crazy....
Pros
Good benifits
Cons
Poor Management from the top

Quickly forgets you don't live to work
Lab/Operations Lead Hand (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON27 October 2016
GFL is about acquiring businesses without adding resources. 8 hour days quickly turn into mandatory 10-12+ and weekends. Goals are intentionally not achievable to "encourage you to work harder."
Coworkers are collectively miserable but management interprets it as laziness. Safety is non-existent.

Average day:
daily staff meeting
helping the previous shift catch up
trucks arrive to unload
sample and analyze all drums
label and organize drums
load trucks
clean the yard
Pros
Decent pay for unskilled labour
Cons
same pay for skilled labour, long days, no shelter from weather conditions, unreasonable expectations
