Driver (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 16 October 2017
the job started off ok, nothing went wrong and everything was ok until the units were in constant repair. even though it was the conditions the units had to endure, management made it feel like it was the drivers fault and the driver were held accountable although the management made the drivers run the units into the ground. i would not recommend anyone to work for this company. in order to make good for the contracts they had in place, sometimes the drivers would have to run unsafe units, units without kill switches and other necessary safety precautions put in place to keep the operator/driver from harm. this does not reflect just one shop but across multiple shops.
work beyond hours allowed, lie on logbook, management, shabby equipment

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....
Lab/Operations Lead Hand (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 27 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
Decent pay for unskilled labour
same pay for skilled labour, long days, no shelter from weather conditions, unreasonable expectations
