A good place to work that offers excellent training and benefits. Hourly rate leaves something to be desired but a good place to work.
Environmental Specialist (Former Employee), CADecember 15, 2011
Pros: benefits and skills learned
Cons: hourly pay is on the low side, and the hours are inconsistent.
Veolia Environmental is a great place to work for those looking for a consistent work environment with opportunities to learn and excel in the environmental field. The benefits are more than competative and the company is quite specialized. I have had a good experience working for Veolia.

zerich – June 11, 2012

I used to work for Veolia in Door County for 3 years, just like this job they're advertising. You work your bacon off starting at 7 am, and if your work day gets too long, they start you at 6 am - 7 days a week. Heavy Door County visitation starts Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, or longer. Long hours, same pay - same scenario for 3 years.

Poor Management, Poor Company
Accounts Payable (Former Employee)August 29, 2011
A very poor place to work with a sad lack of understanding of their own values. The company itself isn't horrible but there is a clear and obvious problem with the company, its business practices, and its management.

Alabama locations have the poorest management I''ve ever had to deal with
NA (Former Employee), Moody, ALMarch 23, 2011
The Alabama sites are a joke. Management has no clue what they are doing. Employees are treated unfairly and there is no sense of job security. I would not recommend this employer (Alabama Locations) to anyone, not even my worst enemy.

Productive happy place to work
Dumper & Shovel Driver (Former Employee), ENGApril 14, 2014
I worked on a landfill just the over side of the Dartford tunnel, the job was boring, but in hind sight I wish I had never left. The guys were all good mates & we all had a laugh. The hardest part was the travel & the only reason I left, as getting threw/& back over the crossing could be a nightmare.

good people, poorly managed
I took on the role of Health & Safety Officer (Former Employee), Dewsbury,but yorks and lincs was my areaMarch 6, 2014
start at 0630 am leave for various destinations and observe peoples behavioral attitudes whilst out working on there tasks, advise and coach where necessary, train individuals and groups in various sessions.
how to view people as individuals and not just en-mass.
management at local level where quite eager to listen and engage with issues middle management – more... seemed to always be watching there backs and feeding the hierarchy with info they thought they wanted to hear and not what was really happening.
co workers were fine all have a goal and that was to make the job work so we could do our job well.
trying to change peoples attitudes towards there safety and others too .
seeing people embrace new ideas and working with them to improve standards. – less

Good company ethics but feel undervalued
Fleet Support Manager (Former Employee), Northern but cover nationally where requiredJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: friendly atmosphere at most depots
Cons: little cog, large machine!
Generally my work revolves around assisting depots across various business lines with compliance, maintenance issues, supplier issues, techincal suport & ensuring the Veolia O Licenses are maintained to the highest level. Part of a very large company sometimes means you feel a very small cog in a massive machine. Mostly everyone I work with on a day – more... to day basis are as keen to do their best for the company. The hardest part of the job is ensuring you are seen to be giving the best support for everyone you deal with which can be difficult when everyone requires assistance at the same time, but the enjoyment is knowing that "you have made a difference" & that you are appreciated! – less
