Where Dreams and Careers Come to Die

If you want a secure job as a union employee, this is it. Kiss your career dreams and goals good bye though. Advancement is rare (union or exempt) - there's no career path anywhere in this outfit. Most management positions are filled from outside by individuals who have no idea of the culture, operational or technical aspects of the job. And most of those managers can't manage their way to the bathroom never mind manage a group of people. HR does a grand job protecting them. Productivity suffers under this leadership. Morale is low to none existent in most divisions due to leadership, lack of career advancement and and gross remuneration inequities. Let me explain, Teamster supervisors, responsible for 5 to 10 staff make $40 K to $50 K less than an exempt supervisor with only one report. Work/life balance - not here. You work an 8.5 hour day, get paid for 7.25 (if your union), if you are management feel free to work 12 hours a day while a colleague has their feet on their desk. You can work yourself into a nervous breakdown while your coworker does nothing and you both walk away with the same salary - again management and union alike. Benefits are also inequitable - management has 100% paid benefits and the unions are at 80%, wages - most exempt staff make $20 plus dollars an hour more than union staff. As an exempt employee you have no security and are subject to immediate dismissal should it be found beneficial to the employer. Additional vacation time is awarded to exempt within the first 10 years and union employees have to work 25 years before they reach the -

As written below.

A varied array of personnel types to supervise. Competency education is an important factor for everyone. i.e. numerous upgrades and education were always extropolated to each and every crew member. Upper management was very open to ideas from all members and acted upon. Most sites offered an onsite fitness facility for everyones' enjoyment through a monthly membership.

Toxicity and nepotism from the top down.

Some departments are filled with great people who do great work. Unfortunately upper management seems uninterested in keeping or hiring more of these people. Micromanagement is an issue with head office being out of touch but interfering on a personal level with supervisors and their workers. Depending on the management you may be expected to clam up about severe incidents and unsafe operations or risk a personal vendetta (reports will be swept under rug regardless). 'Untouchables' can cost the company millions, literally blow up assets, or put peoples lives in danger but will readily find a promotion. HO abuse with HR is rampant and prevents supervisors from running their own ship.

Pros

Decent pay and benefits

Cons

Politics

A fantastic vibe

A great workplace with lovely staff. I worked in the Air Quality department as support staff for the summer and everyone was kind. I still go out for lunch and visit with the department whenever I can.

An enjoyeable Job

Interaction with public whole day, awareness and education on related duty and bylaw enforcement in case of no compliance. I have learned dealing with public from any and different backgrounds. Management is wonderful together with co-workers it's like family company. The hardest part of the job is when people don't want to listen or to comply with the bylaw. It's fun dealing people, answering their questions and providing needed and necessary information related to the zero waste challenge.

Pros

No supervisor but you plan the duty according the company policy

Cons

standing, walking and talking and interaction with people the whole shif hours.
