One months pay for 2 weeks of work... PlusDown side... management.... as long as you do the tasks and don't question your good....

Bad management,Poor training, stressful environment
Had a few stints with Acden and different divisions there and they all seem to have the same issues. Was hired as trainee and trained by a team lead who didn’t care and just wrote everything correct on my training sheet without showing me and then get yelled at when you don’t know what your doing on the job. They have people from different cultures which is fine but they speak their own language even on the job and you kinda feel like an outsider. Had issues brought to management and nothing happen. Communication is one the worst for any company I’ve worked for. You really need to fit in a certain group or culture to succeed. I had time off and just quit cause I noticed Im actually just more happy with myself just not being there. Wage is decent for the job but the experience is nothing you can use in any other job. Company has potential with the amount of contracts they have but management and working culture needs to change

No integrity
If you work here, don't believe their policies. I would just call every situation like it is. Don't expect their HR department to be honest with you. Nothing but deception from every angle in management. Tools are terrible here as you get an old damaged junk tool boxes with garbage tools. The manager suggests you make a list of things you need and it doesn't happen. Manager wants his bonus and for some reason and not investing in employees is his way. I don't know how they expect efficiency or happy employees that way. I strongly disliked every day I worked here and just used it as a stepping stone to my next opportunity. Dirty work, terrible organization. People were quiting this place monthly when I worked here. Most jobs like this paid 10$ more.

Excellent company with experienced executive leadership
I've been with Acden for many years and through many challenging scenarios: from multiple natural disasters to multiple volatile swings in oil and gas and of course a pandemic. The executive and management have been very impressive in their ability to provide a clam and stable work environment and I'm often surprised at the retention of long term employee's and how many employee's have left and then asked if there may be a position available if they were to come back. Acden is an excellent company to work for and the Executive have made several decisions in my employment where they have chosen employee welfare over profitability. I greatly enjoy the many people I have worked with and currently do work with.

Great people and really good management team
My time at Acden Environment was really good ! I enjoyed the work and most of the people I worked with. Management was approachable and actually took the time to listen to any concerns. Some days were more stressful than others regarding the work load but we pulled through as a team and got the job done as required in a safe and efficient manner. Overall I think this company is great to work for and the compensation is very fair.
