Operator (Current Employee) – Kindersley, SK – 26 June 2017
I will preface this by saying I was only there a month before I was unceremoniously let go. The cooperation as a whole is a great place to work, pay is some of the best in the industry and the benefits are unbeatable. The management isn't in tough with the operators and the day- to -day goings on in the plant as they should be. Employees are often feeling threatened by job loss for the smallest reasons and they tent to undercut and talk about each other behind backs more than other places I've worked. All this being said I recommend the company and would go back to work for them if given the chance.
Billing and EDI Specialist (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 February 2017
Excellent work environment. A place i cant wait to go to every morning. Good management, working hard to keep all staff united and committed The hardest part of the job is when we have to meet clients' need The most enjoyable part of the job is having lunch, pot luck, playing games and volunteering outside the company.
After 6 months of new owners, started downhill slide.
Supervisor, Truck Driver, Plant operator (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 10 January 2017
Was great company until it went corporate. New management interfering, not really knowing the business. Not a friendly place to work in any more though co-workers still great. Hardest part was watching your back when management (new supervisor and up) were around. Best part was working with team mates.
pay good. earned before going corporate.
management and very long summer hours. no family time.
Landfill Operator, Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – Hinton, AB – 29 December 2016
The people and the shift is what I have come to enjoy the most. The job it self is great, but with the recent down turn in oil/gas the company doesn't seem to be stable. The many cuts to benefits and hours has made moral low.
Shop Laborer in July (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 29 November 2016
Working for Tervita as a shop labourer allowed me to work with different trades, and complete different tasks on a daily basis. Job shadowing Heavy-Duty Mechanics being a welder helper, as well as operating equipment in the yard kept the job interesting. Not having the choice to work overtime was unfortunate because of the salary, but all in all a good working environment.
Hazardous Waste Field Technician (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 31 October 2016
Management at this company are some of the most clueless individuals you will ever meet. Toxic management everyday, ranging from them saying that overtime is non optional, to badmouthing employees in group emails, then claiming they did nothing wrong. Everyone is on one big power trip.
zero work life balance, inconsistent hours and no appreciation.
nice co workers, paid ok, good benefits
rude and power-abusive managers, non optional overtime, no promotions
IT (Former Employee) – Headquarters, ab – 20 October 2016
pros: very good benefits, work with current technology, highly safety conscious cons:company has been on the decline for years and is running with mostly a skeleton crew of where it used to be. high stress never knowing if a pink slip is going to be in the mail.
Very unstable place to work. Never know when the next time you were going to get the call to fly out or a pink slip in the mail. Was a very good company when the work was there but could not give you answers when shortages were coming.
