Save yourself the time and find somewhere else. Company pinches pennies everywhere the can and management is so disorganized and useless at all times. No training provided and fired a week after an injury. Stay far away
Starting off, your at the bottom of the list. Your 'call out' is almost always as a swamper if there are no drivers sick/absent. As dedicated drivers call in sick, or can't make it, you could get a driving job for the day. In residential, you can sign up for routes as people quit, or change roles. Routes can come up quickly, or if everybody is happy with their routes and drivers arent changing up, you could be waiting a while to get a route. Company is all about safety. Everything safety. If its too snowy in a back lane and its not safe to go down, you dont take any risks and dont go down. Worst part can be the hours. If your truck broke down and you dont get very much help, you could be in for a 13 hour day. Hardest part is the long hours, and making sure you dont damage any property belonging to the residents.
Wage, recession proof hours, Benifits are Excellent, Unionized
Long Hours, "Drive Cam"(They see what your doing any time there is a hard brake/Hard turn/Hard Bump), Trucks are aging
Would never left waste connections of canada if I didn't have to go to India for my wife's immigration process,always paid very well and full support from management and awesome co-workers,still good friends with most of them 😊
Absolute gross work and for a multibillion dollar company its run like a crack house. No direction or support from management, gross working conditions( office and shop never got cleaned), llw morale aswell as put into unsafe situations with lack of training which was promised on hiring. Worst job ive ever had by far and management is absolutely incompetent. You have cameras on you all day recording video aswell as audio and the smallest bump will set them off. I wouldnt reccomend this place to my worst enemy, theres no future here.
Low pay, gross unsanitary work, stressful situations, unorganized management
The only good thing here is the money. Long hours. Zero work/life balance. Expect to work 12 hours every day. Poor maintenance practices. Supervisors use underhanded practices to fire you. Have to call in sick if you want a day off. Preach safety and INTEGRITY but only when its convenient for management. Incidents get you a day off while they "investigate". Dash cams also face in so management can check in on you. Needs a total change in management.
Good pay, at the scarifice of your life
60-70 hour work weeks
Very high expectations, difficult work, very strict with policies and procedures, however management does not appreciate the amount of work required. You can not take breaks although you are deducted a 30 min lunch.
Overtime is paid when worked-(lots)
45 hour reg week, unpaid lunch, heavy labour, fast paced
Management is very friendly and understanding, the people were great too work with and the variations in work is a nice change every so often. The hours were also great you doneceveryday by 3pm.
Great money if your hired on direct
Hard to get in fulltime
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

No support from management Asked to do work you are not qualified for. Way to many chiefs for the number of Indians Too many management changes They preach about teamwork and support but do not supply it. Like it or leave it attitude! Often reminded how replaceable you are.
Constant change in upper managers
Waste Connections is an excellent place to work. They treat people fairly and pay fairly. If you are looking for advancement opportunities Waste Connections takes the time to recognize and foster those who are willing to make an effort and care about the job they are doing every day. The culture is one that encourages people to do good things for others and I really feel like I am part of a team that is working towards a common goal.
All the same stress if you’ve worked in a Garbage Company if you haven’t get ready for the micromanaging supervisors, inadequate trucks, this place has a operations manager who is a power trip. They’ll hire a Private Detective to watch you if you take two or more sick days in a year. They are prone to set up scenarios in order to make “change” occur. Meh, there is better steer clear if you can.
This is the worst company ever worked for. Very very poor training! No compensation for KM or wear and tear on vehicle. Very low commission. Management is inexperienced!! Very difficult to work for. Management is disrespectful to their employees. Long work hours with no compensation. They do not welcome new employees well.Lots of backstabbing.
Poor management and lots of competition. This company has many slogans of safety, employee's and customers first! They are just slogans printed on posters to cover the holes on the wall. If it werent for tenured staff knowing what to do day in day out, this place wouldn't exist in sw Ontario. Zero accountability. .
Sucks to work here management cares abut bonuses getting money from the front line workers putting pressure on them if they want to work here or can leave favourtism an culture ways and in person they cut workers pay but cant cut there pay and they dont do anything in office just play games with phone and wen there is nothing they change everyones route and give good route to there favourites
Worst company I've ever worked for, The equipment is old and worn out or not spect right for the job ,poor management that would rather right you up instead of helping you succeed ,they preach 5 core values for the drivers but management uses there own values to suit themselves, There is no longterm future in this company with the way management treats people
