This place is full of trash, rats and flies around you. The coworkers have no communications and some of them seems not happy and stressful. The management is a joke and they don't even care about the employees since most of the people will quit within one week or even shorter. For sure there are a lot of opportunities and OT since they always short of people.
I would recommend to join Merlin as it has the best work culture doing great job management is very helpful they approach all candidates personally to get feed backs great perks and benefits you can always reach out to management and Hr department for your problems
Great work culture
I have great experience working in this company. HR is very nice and supportive. The lunchroom is clean and well maintained. I have great connections with my co-workers including my supervisors. I have everything I need to safely perform my duties. The work schedule is very flexible with guaranteed full hours. If there are any issues or whatsoever, the Plant Manager is always there to help. I recommend this company to anyone who seeks great opportunities.
Team Oriented, Great Opportunity, Supportive Management, Good Work Schedule, Supportive HR
Fast Paced Work Environment
Worked at the Calgary Plant for 2 years. Managment seemed to have mental problems. Some employee's work against you and set you up for failure. Dangerous working conditions that you would be punished for if you complained. Bullying and Harrasment from mangment and employee's. It's like walking into a house of horrors.
slow paced environment, poor working conditions, poor management, not paid enough for the work load, communication is no key in this environment as it should be

It is a recycling plant. all things considered it is a good job. Management needs improvement. I was hired to do a job but ended up going to a completely different plant doing different work.
free lunch, faire wage
loose mangement, dirty, dusty and noisy
Management is very understanding, Give room to progress, Training and education are provided to the employees to further excel in career. Free food and a lot more perks are provided. The plant manager reaches out to employees for feedback and whatever he could do best to provide them a healthy environment. Everyone is treated like a Work-family. I loved working there.
great perks ie free lunches that are actually good and we get a Xmas party! I read reviews after working here I can see that the reviews are from angry people were probably due to people who didn’t want to show they were dedicated and willing to work as I found it easy to talk to management about any issues I have. Dam rats do pop out of this recycles but I see extermators coming and setting traps l hope they how soondisappear soon
Management is an absolute joke, The worst run business I have ever worked for. The staff get treated like the garbage they are sorting. Work was horrible, tons of rats, the washrooms are so bad you don’t want to go to the bathroom when you work. The staff room is dirty and people steal your food from the fridge. PleSe don
I enjoyed working here. Lots of work and always something to do. The place can get dirty and smells at times which you should expect as it is a recycling plant. Supervisors are pushy sometimes but i think it's due to the amount of material that comes in daily and they want to get it all sorted. Office staff always seemed friendly and often smiled and said hi to me. Plant manager looks mean but is actually very friendly and seems to care. Company I feel does care they provide hot lunches daily for free and are always asking what they can do to make they job better and easier but it is dirty so i may seem like they don't care. Overall I enjoyed working here. Better forklifts as they are in bad shape and more clean up required daily and I believe would make it a better place to work at. Coworkers are friendly to you when you first start which made it easy to get comfortable. I very busy here with too much to do most of the time so you have no time to rest. Some coworkers are lazy and seem to get away with it so makes you have to work harder, I hope this changes. overall nice place to work but dirty and pay could be more as costs of living in Vancouver are crazy.
Company with a good cause to recycle plastic that is important for the planet. Not the best work environment to work at as it is not very maintained. The place is dirty, dusty and there are rodents that are attracted to the dirty smells. Not everyone speaks English too well and some people are friendly. Some work practices are questionable and do not feel safe to work here. Have to work many shifts since people don't show up to work and it is constantly understaffed. The only good thing is theres free lunch as a work benefit and the job is meaningful because you are helping the planet. Working here is the last resort.
