Your job is not safe
Facility Operator (Former Employee) –  Northern BC18 March 2019
Long term Employee dedicated to the company but the company treats you as a number. Poor management from calgary to facility managers. Managers are hired that know nothing and rely On employees to fill them in. DO NOT GIVE YOUR OPINION! Years of experience and they treat you like its your first day on the job. There is no such thing as job security but take what you can while the gettings good.
Pros
Wages, good work and home life
Cons
Management, certain employees

Top heavy organization
Operator (Current Employee) –  Alberta13 February 2019
We are constantly told to care for the environment and to "think before you print", but everything about this company is constant paperwork. They care more about the managers than the workers out in the field. Decent benefits.
Pros
decent benfits
Cons
took a huge pay cut when they merged with Newalta

Risky
Sales (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB31 January 2019
When I started at Tervita things were great, but as are the times with the energy industry, that changed rather suddenly. Management is constantly changing and that changes everything else and there is a real lack of direction and leadership overall.

Good people and a decent work environment but this is a company that just went public and the changes are quite noticeable. I would say the pay and benefits are fair but job security is at an all time low right now, especially with a lacking economy. From the team I worked with, we had one employee who had been there 5 years and the rest were all less than a year.
