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.
Positive Fast paced and multi-cultural environment
Operations Specialist (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 November 2016
Work with persons of various ethnically diverse backgrounds and physical disabilities.Environment is positive and is where safety comes first. All treated equal. Office is fast paced with data recovery & entry for 3 mrfs (material recovery facilities). Communication thru email, fax and telephone. Contact border crossings for logistics and various N American facilities for sea cans (train containers for logistics). Hardest part of the job was during take-over and position was eliminated, many people were let go. Working with diverse persons on a daily basis.
Stable company with a high expectation on job safety and very good training processes
Driver/equipment operator (Former Employee) – Cranbrook, BC – 3 October 2016
Good place to work with friendly people. I learned to operate front end, roll off,residential garbage trucks and gained experience in wheel loader/ forklift training.The hardest part of the job was chaining up roll off trucks in the snow and the most enjoyable part of the job was having a clear understanding of what needed to be done and what was expected the next day.
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
Residential Recycling Driver (Former Employee) – Greater Sudbury, ON – 26 November 2016
Great job, great people. Company didn't get contract with The City and I was laid off. Would definitely consider working there again. Very hard work but rewarding. talking to customers was the highlight of my day.
Parts Person (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 12 September 2016
Worked at WM as Parts Manager, had a positive relationship with other staff and mechanics. Only problem I had was with my supervisor. The supervisor was angry, hot tempered and mean. He bullied the mechanics and myself daily. I was able to do my job and shoulder the burnt of his 'dictatorship attitude' for over a year. Unfortunately, head-office sent down a layoff notice and three people were let go, one mechanic, one welder and myself. I was not upset by the layoff, rather relived that I wouldn't have to work with RM again.
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.
Driver (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 21 August 2016
Thankless managers that have absolutely not a clue on what to do and not one of them has a license to even drive a truck...oh yeah lets not forget about the 9 minute pre-trip they want or the 10 minute post trip...your treated like a king for first couple weeks then your a number like everyone else ...To sum it up the Top dogs are back stabbing spineless jellyfish the mid managers are puppets and they do not care if they pull out of Canada at all don`t waste even a thought of going to Waste of Management
money is not bad if you like slugging..., no weekend work
horrible place, managers are bone heads, they nickel and dime you to death
Lead hand mechanic (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 12 November 2016
Nothing good to say about the company. My co-workers were great for the most part. One of the mechanics thinks he knows everything and is the biggest drama queen and will run to management to get u written up
Operator (Former Employee) – Wainwright, AB – 9 August 2016
I operated a front end truck and when the weather was good and the truck running up to expectations the job was great. Having a truck break down or weather stop you from completing a route only meant you had to do that much more the next day and because your days were already full it made life tough sometimes.
Management was ok for the most part, no large complaints. It was probably one of the better companies I have worked for.
