Operator/Labourer (Former Employee) – Bedford, NS – 26 March 2018
I worked as an operator at the Bedford branch. Horrible operation there. Management was the major problem. Coupled with no communication and the place was full of back stabbing employees who were afraid that someone would make them look bad. The lead operators were unprofessional and only cared about making more money. They preach safety is #1. Yeah. Only on paper. They only do the “right” thing when someone else is watching. Shady business practices that repeatedly cost our customers more money. This place was a joke. I would never have them on my job site.
I no longer work there.
Someday someone is going to get seriously hurt or worse.

Love that we are now Terrapure and we are growing. Yes it is so we can be sold. But that is the name of the game. A lot of the day to day is what you make it. You can enjoy where you work or hate it. I love it. Salaries are always in need of inprovements. But we are paid well and have an amazing benifit package and match our RRSP. We could always get better equipment to use but most is in is in good working order. Sometimes as we grow it is hard to really know what is happening and does the left hand know where the right hand is and what it is doing? In saying that I am sure you will always find that in any big company. Would I recommend Terrapure to a friend? For sure. I have said it already that I love working here and want us to continue to grow.
Paid is good. Matched RRSP. Great benifits.
Sometimes employees, dont understand we are working for a great company, they just dont like their jobs, Or just dont like working

Outre l'environnement de travail qui demande a s'y habituer. Travailler chez Terrapure a été un plaisir. Le groupe de gestionnaires est collaborateur et coopératif. Les travailleurs sont faciles et pour la plupart très mobilisés. La culture d,entreprise, bien qu'a amélioré quelque peu, est très bien implanté.
good co-workers, poor upper management, below industry standard wages
transportation operator (Former Employee) – Cranbrook, BC – 12 January 2017
Co-workers were overall good to work with, upper management does not care about on ground employees, branch manager was not given leeway to do his job as they were always micro managed by regional manager. Why even have a branch manager if they are not allowed to manage. Good variety of work. Old equipment that needs to be updated(most vehicles 10+ years old and worn out)
Home most nights, weekends off, good benefit pkg
long hours, upper mgmnt does not care about on the ground workers even though lip service to the contrary
High-paced work with tons of work experience around friendly co-workers.
Operator (Current Employee) – Bedford, NS – 28 May 2016
Traveling to and from various locations in Halifax and Dartmouth on a daily basis to complete scoped jobs for customers in a timely manner. A lot of hands-on work outside working with equipment, vehicles and tools. I learned about the high-paced, fluctuating oil/gas industry and how to succeed. I gained valuable work experience with Terrapure that will help me in my future careers. Although Terrapure tries hard to compete in the industrial services industry, poor management and lack of planning is their downfall.
Operator (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 February 2016
It is a fun place to work with a good group of guys but upper management shows really lack of motivation and refuses to try and improve on things or new ideas, No room for advancement as they have gotten rid of positions and will not hire people in replacement.
Great job good benefits, home every night.there is a positive outlook from management and they seem to be more open now under Terrapure then previously under Newalta. the mistakes made by the former leaders are still being felt and were never repaired.
