Very low wage but good benefits and good working hours
The management is terrible because of their unwillingness to communicate, take and offer advice and also because of their absentee behaviour. Very little room for advancement and no chance to earn a wage that is fitting of ones skill. However, the hours of work are very beneficial to a person with a family and someone who like’s the opportunity to be and or go home when required. The benefits are pretty decent and the pension is nice to have also.
Pros
Work and life balance
Cons

Great work
Worked three years for them and considering going back. Great people, work is local to the town you live or not far away otherwise. The training is done on-site so your training is all practical. Yes it is seasonal and yes it is snow plows but its shifts with guaranteed hours, can't beat that.

Fun, fast paced environment
The crew that work at Emcon really take you under their wing and make sure you feel comfortable and confident. They encourage growth and development and the work environment is fun and fast paced. The pay is great and you are guaranteed work- four on four off, with the offerings of overtime.

Depends who you ask
The only good thing that came out of this place was leaving it. They are always pointing fingers, creating drama, everyone talks about everyone behind their backs, no one cares about safety, you are asked to cut corners all of the time, the equipment sucks, the management is absolutely horrible, if you try to stand up for yourself, look out. Unless you like workplace bullying and harassment, don’t work at this place.

Worst experience
The worst place you can get a job, lots or people start and quit at the same month. Management is not right. You not get paid for the effort you’re put in.

Pros

Mediocre at the best
The pay is mediocre at best, especially for being on call 24/7 in the winter. The workplace morale is at a crippling low, constant bullying from coworkers but nothing being done because foremen play the favourites game. And absolutely clueless managment. Upper Management does not know how to manage their own bowel movements let alone a company. It seems like the more clueless and incompetent you are the further you make it up the ladder. Equipment breaks down pretty much everytime you use it and its always the blame game every time it breaks. I would not want to get a level 1 inspection in any of their trucks or equipment, forced to run unsafe equipment and forced to run well past the federal HOS.
Pros
Easy work
Cons
Everything else

Applicants be aware
not a great place to work. Zero life on call 24/7 from mid October to mid of April. Pay is not good. The guys who work there are rock stars really great to work with easy to get along with. If you have a beard the foreman will want to sleep you.
