Received a temp lay-off during COVID 19 which allowed higher ups to phase out jobs. Not happy with how things were handled. No contact unless I reached out to find out if I was able to return.

They pay too little for what they ask of you, in comparison to the city and or other private companies. Expect long days and early mornings. Managment is alright but at the end of the day the job needs to be done and they arnt shy of pushing you to limits when it comes to your hours on the road. The work culture is great, most people start the day with smiles until you figure out how many no shown or just peoplee that have left. This job is completely is reliant on your co workers showing up and doing the portion of the maps.
Pros
Steady work, Good work out
Cons
No life, long hours, lots of turnover due to the nature of the work

It's all work and no life. You'll work 14+ hours a day and expected to come in and do it again the next day. Communication is a major issue here. No one likes you taking a day off.

Sadly as a mechanic and all mechanics I came in contact with at GFL are treated as a necessary evil.
Unskilled labour is treated better.

With 310T mechanics in high demand this would be the last place I'd work.

Great company trying to find their way in a high tourist area with a lack of tourists. They are also working within a Union environment that does not allow for improvisation, adaptation, the ability to overcome.
Pros
Great management
Cons
Covid-19

You start off as a new hire & end up replacing the guy who you got to know & trained you.Buddy gets blind sided and fired, and you feel terrible. Never get raises here unless youre a fave. Supervisors : I recommend you all take managerial classes to compensate for your lack of intellgience. Trucks down constantly, Company is broke. Stay away, far far away.
Pros
meeting some cool people, networking with other garbage companies to get out of here
Cons
they dont follow their own workplace policies and cut corners heavily

Try other company first. Apply as a last resort. Lots of backstabbing. Broken promises unless it's in there favor !! Nowhere near what THE GARBAGE COMPANY was.

Gfl overcharged their clients big time. Charging for work not even done. Dispatchers were the ones behind the overcharges. The manager is a no show at meetings. I would NOT recommend this ding dong company to no one.

Co workers are excellent to work with. Management needs to decide a course for the company, we are in so many areas that not all areas receive 100 percent . Equipment is in good repair .

Poorly run company with little to no supervision of employees. Trucks constantly breaking down and forced to drive non road worthy trucks that would fail DOT. There attitude is just get the job done at any cost. Lot of driver turnover as no drivers wanna stay at a terrible run company
