Tank operator (Current Employee) – Hammond, IN – April 9, 2017
First job that I actually had made more money then working at my other job I'm glad they hired me I've learned a new job operating centrifuges, mix tanks, and transfer pumps keeps you on the move makes time fly by
Veolia is an international company with many different divisions that you can move to if you don't like what where you are. They are very safety focused which is great. They care about their employees; many don't leave for years. They invest in their employees allowing them to get further education and certificates. One problem with this place is corporate office. All the local offices are great to work with and nice people to communicate with.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Fort Monroe, VA – April 3, 2017
A typical day at work was at most part unpredictable and unstructured. I learned about water works and underground pipefitting. The work place culture was generally friendly and supportive. The hardest part of the job was lack of training procedures and management structure. The most enjoyable part was being able to search out your own training means and on the job training when available. Although uncommon, it allowed me the flexibility to grow on my own accord and abilities.
General employee relations
Poor low and mid level management structure and relations experience
Wastewater Operator I (Current Employee) – Fall River, MA – April 3, 2017
It's ok if you don't mind the BS, not a team work place to work for, no real good training you kind of learn on your own or if you work with people who are team players you can learn and teach eachother.Lots of things that do not work anymore because lack of money.
Work schedule, understaff, non schedule overtime you may get force to stay, mangement can't make smart decisions
Mechanic (Current Employee) – North East, MD – April 1, 2017
When we're not slow or being restructured it's a good steady place to work . Very safety oriented and clean work environment. If you like to travel and work out of town this is good for you. You can make lots of hours going from one job to the next. We slow down around the end of the year but are always able to keep guys working .
Assisstant Dispatch/Technician (Former Employee) – North East, MD – March 19, 2017
When hired was told that i would work strictly on-site to learn processes and to keep the shop and garage cleaned up. I ended up traveling all day everyday driving anywhere from Florida to Maine. Occasionally was sent to work on jobs in plants with absolutely no experience with any chemicals or industrial equipment.
Benefits and unlimited overtime
No life with working unllimited hours all the time. 24/7 on-call
Excellent professional company. Helped all employees with upholding high standards.
Industrial Water Treatment Plant operator (Former Employee) – Mountain Pass, CA – March 10, 2017
Good work processes. 12 + hour shifts were well organized. Operators were given high job responsibility. Strong safety culture ran throughout the company.. Head office and regional mgmt was very supportive. Good teamwork with other operators. Good to be part of a strong company.
Lacked job relocation opportunity after plant closed
good, well organized work duties, expectations, training, conditions, hours
Too much favoritism from management towards certain people
Driver / Operator (Former Employee) – New Lenox, IL – March 2, 2017
False presentation at interview. They will tell you, and promise you things that are not true. If they could be up front about everything about the job, and follow through with what they say, the job would be good. Management needs to be better. Fellow workers are helpful, thoughtful, and considerate people.
