Too much favoritism, laid back workers protected by the union while other workers picking up the slack of incomplete jobs. Accommodations were good, but no paid flights resulting in extra expenses for workers

Organization has too many fires to put out
The interview process was a mess. I applied for one role, then the interview changed to another positions, and then the offer was for a third position, all in the scope of a week.

The management need to focus on projects and not constantly introduce new ones every time small issues arise. Make the rules, then play to exceptions, not the other way around.


You will constantly feel watched and get the sense that your job is on the line for every action. This will lead to more mistakes and no innovation. Apply at Mcdonalds before working here.

It was a great place to work
I learned how to operate a vacuum truck, combo unit (pressure and steam) and vacuum. I also have experience operating a water truck and I'm in the process of getting my class 3. But with the current situation it will be awhile before everything gets back to normal.

Can be stressful at times
You can learn alot at this place. there are lots of different jobs that this company does. If you want to learn new things this is a good place to work. you have to be a fast learner and catch on quick. Management needs more experience in dealing with employees.
Pros
good wages
Cons
Poor comunication between management/workers, long hours

Fluid hauler operator
No licensed mechanics to fix the units. Management only cares about their bonuses and will screw you over to make sure they get it. You are just a number absolutely zero care about their employees.

Great company to work for
I'd recommend anyone that has a class 3 or 1 drivers license to work here. Good work / home life. Not much trouble to get a bit of extra time off for special occasions. Safety is top priority with this company, or at least where I worked it did. Management was pretty good as well. Easy to talk to but very professional.

No increases, they downsize and dump extra work on you, but no increase in compensation.
Back stabbing environment. Ineffective employees take credit for others work, to make themselves look good. Those same non-producing employees seem to get acknowledge from management for a job well done. Very male centered environment.

I would not recommend anyone Black people to work there.
Its a racist culture there at Cleanharbors it’s difficult being a person of color. We hear a lot of black jokes in the treated differently with no room for advancement.
However there are a lot of good people there it’s just my own personal experience with racism they are terrible.

unproductive and poorly managed
the strangest job I ever had. seems management does not fully get involved with the day to day operation unless something goes wrong. The product managers are in charge of how things get done but only give direction after the work has been done.

Executive management couldn't care less about employees.
Shark tank culture with all employees looking over their shoulder. They will chew you up and trash you when they are done. Screwed over most employees upon leaving.

Company experience depends on division management
Each division experience is different, most divisions suffer from poor equipment management. Work was usually a good experience, I have worked with near a dozen divisions throughout Canada.
