Good place to work.

Featured review

GFL Environmental selected this as a representative review
Well maintained clean truck. Thorough training program and responsive management. Team atmosphere. I worked on a short term project and enjoyed my time with that company.

Worked to death

Great workplace if you do the work of 4 and accept a pittance for remuneration.There's two rates of pay, you'll only see the higher rate (or a bonus) with threats of leaving.Wasn't given appropriate title because "then I'll have to pay you quarterly bonuses".


Bills get paid

GFL was a very stressful place due to poor upper managment

What is the best part of working at the company?Money is good if you have a trade but not really worth the disrespect of the higher management can be very disrespectful of your ability to do your job.They are very disorganized and do not follow company policy unless it benifits them.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Lack of training with software they use or equipment used on the roadsWhat is the work environment and culture like at the company?Supervisors and employees at each facility are like a family and treat each other respecfullyWhat is a typical day like for you at the company?Very busy and days go fast unless upper management is micro managing you.

Great environment

The day can be a little stressful sometime but it is an overall good experience. The staff is loving and very helpful.The pay structure needs to be revised.

Awful Department

Tax Dept. is a horrible place to work for. You will be forced to work overtime regularily without being paid for it. You will have to deal with an incompetent management team that consists of very toxic and judgemental people that have very poor communication skills and make no effort to make you feel welcome to team. They expect you to sit at your desk every single minute throughout the day without getting up to get water or to use the bathroom, will heavily frown upon people talking to one another, will time you on your lunch break to make sure that you are not having lunch for more than 60 minutes, and will go thru any message that you have sent on Microsoft Teams. The turnover rate is especially high and most people don't even stay with the company for more than 6 months before quitting. Any normal company would have fired these clowns but the management have close connections to the HR team, so they refuse to do anything about them.


Long Hours, Unpaid Overtime, High Turnover, Poor Managers

Mon rôle très important dans la vie quotidien

En tant qu'assistant de vie dévoué, mon objectif premier est d'améliorer la qualité de vie de mes clients en leur offrant un soutien personnalisé et attentionné. Je m'engage à créer un environnement sûr et confortable, où mes clients se sentent écoutés et respectés. Mon rôle consiste à assister dans les activités quotidiennes telles que la préparation des repas, l'entretien de la maison, la gestion des médicaments et la compagnie bienveillante. Je suis également là pour encourager l'indépendance de mes clients, en les aidant à maintenir leur autonomie et à participer activement à la vie sociale. Mon objectif ultime est de permettre à mes clients de vivre leur vie dans la dignité, le confort et la sérénité, en veillant à ce qu'ils puissent profiter pleinement de chaque moment.

Great Place to Work

I've enjoyed my time since we were acquired by GFL. Amazing staff and supportive management. We like to have fun but always get the job done! It's a family environment where everyone really cares about the people they work with.

Pretty decent place to work.

Show up in the morning - get your gear - head out and get your day rolling - head back to the shop when done - over all a pretty decent place to work.

Awful place to work

Horrible management that has zero care or concern for employees. New hires getting paid more than existing long term employees which is a great way to create a toxic work environment!

Poorly Managed

Poorly managed at the branch level with incompetent supervisors and managers. Trucks aren’t maintained and money comes first to them, they don’t care about the worker.

TERRIBLE company to work for.

The people are awful. They don’t train you well for projects and it comes back to look bad on you. No matter how much initiative and drive you show, there is one admin who gets treated like she’s alpha. Awful company. Stay away.

Decent Salary - Fast-Paced Environment

Overall a good place to work. Compensated fairly. The company is growing significantly so there are a lot of opportunities within the company to move upwards or laterally.

Not a good place to stay or start

Would definite give it a 0 if possible with such their terrible management. Looking for somewhere else for experience. Your hard work will never get recognized

Management is terrible

The money is there but the hours and management is what will get you. 4am-4pm shift, extremely fast paced, and no recognition for hard work. Supervisor is incompetent and will make your job 1000x harder than it needs to be. Do not stand up for yourself or you’ll be let go. They expect you to get yelled at all day everyday then smile like nothing happened. Joke of a workplace

It’s an okay job

Great coworkers, pay isn’t great compared to other similar companies. Overtime after 8 hours, standard benefits. Good luck taking your paid time off.
