Specialist (Current Employee) – Cleveland, OH – January 10, 2017
Working at the NEORSD has taught me a lot about communication and how to develop people skills. Many people view safety as a burden across the nation but if you have the right people skills, you can explain that it is a benefit to the workers and the company you work out. The NEORSD taught me how to develop these skills with the management involved. They are willing to work with you and help you success. The hardest part of the job is to implement changes in the organization. You have to implement changes into this organization in a way that it will not effect the process of the work. That is a difficult challenge to master.
Good Neighbor Ambassador Program (Current Employee) – Cleveland, OH 44115 – October 30, 2017
A typical day at work was we would go to all of the local projects around Cleveland where the construction was being done, and we will pick up trash and cut different areas of grass. There will be days where we take tours of the different NEORSD plants so that way we can see what jobs we want to apply for. But while in the program, we also went to school for Career Advancement and also Crucial Conversations. The classes lasted 2 months, and it helped me with rebuilding my resume and applying for another job. The hardest part of the job was the schooling, but i got through it and the most enjoyable part of the job was when we was out in the neighborhoods and the people that was around us was really nice and we made a difference in the community.
To afraid to say (Current Employee) – Cleveland, OH – May 12, 2017
NEORSD is the poster child for waste, they waste money by the thousands . There are a few completely incompetent people in key positions that are driving this organization into the ground. If you make a monthly check payable to these people you are getting hosed. The turnover rate is skyrocketing and no one cares, makes it easier to hire family and friends with no qualifications, that's why all the capable people leave, and allowing for the huge misuse of money.
B-Stem Intern (Former Employee) – Cuyahoga Heights, OH – January 8, 2017
The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District was a great place to work. The people that I worked with and for treated me very well. We were able to accomplish a lot during my internship at the Southerly plant. I would gladly work for them again and would positively advocate this organization to anyone who is thinking about applying for a job with them.
Productive and supportive work environment with opportunities for career growth.

Engineering and Construction Co-op (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – March 18, 2015
As an intern, I mostly did the daily reports for the current construction projects at the wastewater plant I was at for the summer. The construction supervisors are all very knowledgeable and come from different backgrounds, including engineering, inspecting, and building maintenance. I worked mostly with the senior construction supervisors and had very little contact with other interns, unlike other interns that worked in other departments. The hardest part of the job was understanding some of the work that was being done because I didn't have any previous experience or exposure to construction on such a large scale. However, the best part of the job was to be able to walk outside around the plants and talk to employees and contractors about how the plant functions.
Large intern program, hire interns for full time positions, ability to move from department to department
Half hour lunch, small office environment, no vacations for interns
High paying jobs, if you're family, but NEORSD customers are going broke
Electrician (Current Employee) – Westerly location – January 4, 2014
The Union protects its own. The Union will make sure that you get paid well for the work you do. However, nepotism is rampant. No skills required. If you have a relative working for Cuyahoga County or the City of Cleveland, there is a job for you at the NEORSD. Even the corrupt members of Jimmy Dimora's office are now working at the Sewer District.
Co-op in the lab (Current Employee) – Cuyahoga Heights – December 31, 2012
The sewer district is run by 2nd and 3rd class people. If you need experience and you can avoid gossip and drama, the sewer district is a place to build your resume until a serious job becomes available. New people will often become the targets of gossip. The management ignores the cancerous gossip, thereby encouraging it.
Chemist (Current Employee) – Cleveland, OH – November 26, 2012
There is an anti labor movement at NEORSD and the agression is taken out against the non-union employees. There is no overtime pay for non-union employees and NEORSD takes their days off. We work 7 days a week and we are not compensated. It's a tough job market out there and the management is taking full advantage of it.
compensation if you're union
no overtime pay and you will be working 7 days per week
