Salary was OK for position but the additional benefits like a vehicle were non-existent. Poor organization of the company, internally competing divisions, redundant sales force, more organization and structure from the top required.

Went downhill in the last 6 months. Very shorthanded and wages were cut 30%...a life changing amount. Management is non existent and only the friends of management get ahead. Hard work is not recognized...youre just a number.
Pros
Work schedule
Cons
Poor wages and way overworked

Never know when the next job will be and expect you to be ready to leave at a moments notice for weeks at a time. Your just a warm body in a seat unless your part of the brown noser club and always say yes to the clueless bosses.
Cons
Everything

In my time there, it was a great place to work! There was ample sales training provided and tons of resources to help you do your job. My manager and sales manager were incredible to work with.

Tervita is an awesome company to work for. The culture is really great. No micro management. Everyone works hard to get the Job done. Overall very great place to work. But they need to increase wages sometimes.

This company has a very strong safety culture. They have strong training before you begin any onsite work. They are team oriented with all staff being connected and working together. They are very connected to local and head office Staff through video and remote chats.

Tervita is a good organization to work for. But like all companies in the oil & gas space, they are currently going through difficult times due to 2020 crude oil price drop and COVID-19.

Operators at Tervita TRD facilities work a 7 on, 7 off schedule. Work days are 12 hours a day. Busier facilities have less sit down time, but are more profitable and more secure. Extremely lenient in workers behaviour. Workers from other provinces feel like they are in heaven due to the lack of micro managing. Downside can be unloading vac trucks for hours at a time. Still not labour intensive work. Great company!

I was hired to come in and introduce a new Records system in order to pick up paper work. Tervita went from a small family owned caring business to a large here's your worker I'd number. It was hard and managers went from great to horrible and evil. I was so happy to have been let go from there.

I learned a ton about various industries while working at Tervita. The benefit of the organization is that they had a diverse workforce and areas of operations which allowed me to learn and grow.

Totally mismanaged and toxic environment made to protect those that are part of "the club". Termination without cause and without warning is standard practice. I put in six years and they fired me over the phone. You never know when you will be next at Tervita. Bullying is common, I was refused holidays, asked to come in when my wife was due to have a baby and was asked to perform work that I felt was unsafe and was in breech of company policy. They don't respect their employees and they don't follow their own corporate standards and practices with regards to health safety and environment, and to point that out is to put yourself on the chopping block.

It was a very stressful work environment. Management is not forward thinking, stuck in the mindset of “this is how we have always done this”. Not a good work environment.

High school toxic environment which includes managers. Bullying and gossip are used like bonding tools. Do not follow corporate policy or practices. Worked over and above job description with no raise in pay. HR is kangaroo court made to protect management. Dismissal without cause used as a regular practice.
