This Job is okay if you are strong and fit, and stay that way. Union job so pay is okay and benifits are also okay. Not much room to move up or around in position.
Pros
Long hours
Cons

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.
Pros
None
Cons
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.

Make sure you have the gear to do the job before you begin your first day. The company does not supply a uniform until your 3 month probation is finished.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Poorly routed maps can make for a long shift.

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.

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

I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone. Unfair treatment and favoritism. The manager only hires his friends and there is no room for advancement. Nearly 3 years here and I wanted to leave from day 1. They lied to me several times and was blamed for multiple incidents. They is a lot of workplace harassment and verbal abuse. Which this company doesn't take seriously. This is the worst company I have ever worked for.

It was enjoyable working here and made good friends. Good collaboration and division of tasks so we all felt like we could work together to get more business but we each played an important role at the same time in the company.
