Horrible place to work
SENIOR INSPECTION LEADER (Former Employee) –  Grande Prairie, AB21 August 2019
No personal growth. Management does not listen to suggestions for the reliability of integrity programs improvement. Workplace culture is not good for educated people. No rewards or any appreciation for whatever good work you do for the company.
Pros
Bonus depends on the production
Cons
toxic environment. During the winter time, the plant is enclosed and lots of toxic chemicals gases are inside

Great
Recycling technician (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB10 November 2015
Your day would include picking up recycling and throwing it into a hopper/recycling truck continuously for 3 hours then sitting down doing nothing for just over an hour, it's a great place for active people and oddly enough a great place for people with bad english to get employed
Pros
Tips from residents and downtime
Cons
Having to work with random people yelling at you for something you're unaware of

Stable company, not work life balance
Sr. Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Newton, NC14 September 2015
Big company with good benefits and stable, but not work life balance, long hours and limited growth opportunities unless you are in the circle. As long as you do what they ask you, you will have a job forever, but hours are increasing and pay is decreasing. not bonus and not incentives other than your pay.
Pros
Good health benefits, and pension plan
Cons
Long hours, and they dont care about the employees

Easy to learn job, fantastic coworkers and dispatch
Recycle Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC15 July 2014
Once I got into the run of the job I would get to work a little early and clock in, pre trip my truck and let it warm up. Then sit in the drivers room reviewing paperwork and chatting with some of the friendliest (and helpful) bunch of guys I've had the pleasure of working with.

The work is pretty straight-forward and easy. If you finish early you go help someone with a longer route; if your behind someone will always come to help you - everyone finishes at the same time more or less.

You really only deal with one guy on the phone and he knows pretty much everything, and is very nice and understanding. As long as you don't lie to him he will treat you as an equal.

Most days are nice and your outside so its not bad, and the bins are rarely heavy. If its extremely hot it can be a little hard, but just bring alot of water. When it rains though the job is miserable, get a ultra light weight poncho and water proof boots.

You ALWAYS get paid for 10 hours even if you worked less. Anything over 10 is OT.

A catch-22 is you work every stat but 1 or 2... you get all OT that day PLUS the stat pay, but your working so...
Pros
Great Boss, 10 hour guarentee
Cons
Rain days are horrible
