Loader (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 16 May 2017
typical work day was hard, long shifts hard work and you have the grull the environment. typically the managers and drivers were nice and accommodated your needs. most of the driver/loaders got along. hardest part of the job would be the grind of filling a truck. most enjoyable would be going to dump the truck.
Heavy Equipment Technician (Former Employee) – Ottawa West, ON – 19 April 2017
If you want a job where all you do is preventative maintenance, management doesn't notice when you put in long hours to make sure trucks are road worthy, promise training but you can't because there is none, tell you there is room for advancement when there really isn't, work on new trucks that are already having major issues, feel like you're in prison because you're monitored by the computers and cameras, then this is the job for you. Good luck and Don't say you weren't warned. Wish I was.
Recycling Process Picker (Former Employee) – Mount Forest, ON – 5 April 2017
It's a rough jobs but it's easy to follow work together as team, there a lot of Process (waste garbage), however health and safety is important for company and for employee. At the end, some Process are worth some reward.
Roll Off Driver (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 March 2017
other employees are great to work with but to many managers trying to hold on to bonuses managing by bullying and intimidation and slight of hand tactics with pay, drivers are always to blame for everything
Worker (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 March 2017
Do not work there. Back stabbing bully tactics by management. Vehicles are not road worthy. Poor management. Say one thing to your face and do another. Zero cross communication. You will be another slave.
Sorter (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 14 February 2017
Was a really enjoyable job, you got to see a lot of interesting things such as raccoons and needles coming down the belts.
They had really good management systems in place, wasn't a hard job throughly enjoyed the experience. The best part about the job would be seeing the wildlife coming down the line and having to pull them off the belt before they went through the chopping blocks.
Edmonton wate managemen is a horrible place becauseof managers
Driver/Operator (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 31 January 2017
Avoid at all cost. Trucks should not be allowed on road. I should take my pictures to Dot . Wish I could upload the pictures for you to see and reconsider your choice to join waste management Edmonton. They trip over dollars to pick up nickles.trucks are always broke down and should not be in the roadbut when you refuse they become very snake like. Stay away
Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 19 January 2017
I worked as an Outside Sales Rep. The management do not know what they are doing and demand 100 business cards a week. There is a lot of politics. A handful of reps get favoured and sales are handed to them. All other reps do not hit their targets. Management then puts the reps that are not hitting target on 90 day improvement plan and then they fire you. The director for ECA is the worst. She is the most uneducated person and all the managers are her minions.
