LABOURER/RECEIVER (Former Employee) – Airdrie, AB – 2 May 2018
It's just a weekend job, and the job is really helpful to me as it somehow introduced me to some kind of manufacturing assembly line environment. Generally, its nothing special, just the regular job that helps add to my income. The environment is a bit harsh since its a dump for electronic garbage, but I feel honoured to be helping in the recycling and proper disposal of these environmental hazards.
Alright, if you like to smash and dismantle stuff.
GENERAL LABORER (Former Employee) – Chilliwack, BC – 7 April 2018
Was alright but management isn't that great, and its very unhealthy and disgusting in there. I was snorting up black soot from my nose everyday after work. They constantly changed things that didn't need to be changed. and they had a quota for the amount of work they expected done which was almost always near impossible to reach and if you didn't reach it you would likely be written up.
Good friendly staff
Unrealistic expectations and not so great management
Run away as fast as possible...would give it zero stars if i could
worker (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 17 January 2018
Management are a bunch of HYPOCRITES!!!
They make rules for the warehouse workers and then turn around and NEVER follow the rules they created
There is a definite feeling from the office that the warehouse staff is lower than pond scum and should not be associated with...
HR is a joke your complaints are never heard against the office elite and when warehouse staff gets hauled into HR's precious office they're never fully listened too
Was dismissed without written warnings...just dismissed and not even allowed to plead my case
The office elite walk around in this segregated little bubble of theirs and have no idea whats its even like to work on the floor with their ridiculous demands
Drivers are treated with little respect or the smallest appreciation for the job they do and are demanded to do way to much with the time frame by a bunch of stupid people who all they do is sit behind a computer desk and punch addresses into google maps and expect the impossible
Would NEVER work for them...run away as fast as you can and don't even waste your time thinking you'll become permanent because they will find ANY excuse possible to fire you before that even happens..the turn over in there with warehouse workers is huge
Exciting experience at an environmental start-up company
Payroll and Employee Benefits Administrator (Former Employee) – Airdrie, AB – 4 December 2017
Lots of opportunity to learn how a startup gets off the ground by observing the fast changes and big decisions that shaped ECycle. Every day was different and I was open to learning from every role helping out wherever I could. This job had many opportunities to try new things and work with management in all of the Canadian locations as the company grew.
Director, Operational Excellence (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 September 2017
I went through different phases at eCycle, starting when the company had some struggles with its labour efficiency. Although demanding and a bit stressful at times, overcoming the challenge of improving the operations as a whole was very rewarding. Last I heard they are still doing very well in terms of process efficiency. The company is led by very smart people, and the overall culture is Teamwork and Focus. Lots of great co-workers, and good support from leadership. Leaders are very business-oriented, they will provide all support you need if you are a hard worker, and if you are on the right track. What I liked the most about eCycle's leadership is that they are facts- and data-driven. Lastly, one way or the other, depending on whom you work with (I was fortunate to work with very intelligent leaders) you learn a lot - about the industry, about management, about prioritization, about getting down to the real root cause of issues. It is not a very large organization so access to top leaders is wide open however, focus and prioritization are a must as it is not a very large company and senior management is very much focused on results (no room for the big Corporate "fat" you would normally find in large organizations).
Reasonable flexibility with personal life, good co-workers, simple approach to management, support from leadership
Sometimes really long days, some noise exposure, comp package is OK
employee (Current Employee) – Chilliwack, BC – 20 March 2017
New management has been making a lot of changes to the building. A lot of new equipment instaled and even some equipment was later re-instaled to make it better to use. Better ppe. All new processes for all the lines. Determin root case to make reduce injurys. Even the community has noticed a diference.
laborer (Current Employee) – Chilliwack, BC – 20 March 2017
New management is looking to improve the way we do business. They care about the safety of workers. They look at ways to make it safer. They own safety to the point of making the change quickly. They promote harasment as not being acceptable. The people that do not perform or work unsafely are talked to.
Really trying to do better, to the point we are actually doing better, People are good at what they do, there is a lot of experience and know how
Need to keep getting more negative and lower performer people to leave quicker
General Labor (Current Employee) – Chilliwack, BC – 11 August 2016
a lot of changes in making the place more organized and efficient. completely different than a few years ago. there are a lot of good people that care about the work that is done. the shop stewards are not appreciated by co-workers as they should be..
doing good things for the environment. keep trying to make the place a better place to work
a lot of bad apples have been fired, but there are some more that need to leave as they lower morale for other people
Accessory Line team member (Former Employee) – brampton, on – 20 October 2015
productive and fun workplace with many employees that are all easy to communicate and get along with. not the cleanest air due to the type of work being done, but expected for that type of work environment. safety materials are always provided & the work is not too tasking. very enjoyable workplace
AMS Coordinator (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 21 July 2015
I have been with the company for a little over 4 years and I can honestly say I have seen great improvement especially around 2014 when I made the switch from Operations to AMS. The AMS Manager has done awesome work in implementing SOP's, procedures and processes, rules etc and it is making a huge difference. Every day I come in to work excited about being in a friendly and encouraging environment. I look forward to contributing to the growing of eCycle and adding my knowledge that I have learned at school as well as here on the job to make eCycle a better place.
