Company reviews
"Management, low pay, no life"
Former EmployeeDriver
Very good job but management could be a whole lot better. They don't take their workers opinions seriously or in consideration. Low pay for what we do and hard work. Bad workers get pacified and hard workers get slaved

"Enjoyable place to work at."
Current EmployeeSite worker
Once a person gets used to the trash, it's a very easy job. A typical day is dependent at what location you're at. Some are slow to the point of boredom and others are busy and challenging. Management is there when you need them, otherwise, you pretty much pace and manage yourself. The hardest part of the day is dealing with the ignorance of a few people during the day. On the other hand, the most enjoyable thing is dealing with the public! As with anything, you get out of it what you put into it.

"A Stable Job"
Current EmployeeLoader
It's a stable job. You'll always have job security, benefits are somewhat limited in Canada but can be decent depending on your location. Pay is generally OK, overtime is always available and generally mandatory at my site (55hrs). One thing I will say is that upper level management DOES seem to take safety seriously. If you don't feel comfortable preforming what you think is an unsafe task and speak out you won't get punished even if you were wrong in your assumptions. If you are a residential Loader/helper or Driver/loader combo it can be very physically demanding.

"Good place to work"
Former EmployeeInside Sales Representative
This is a good place to work and build up your resume. The managers care about your journey and want you success. This is a good job to learn to talk to customers.
