Hydroblast Technician (Former Employee) –  La Porte, TXApril 21, 2017
I would not recommend anyone to work for veolia you are overworked and way underpaid. Work schedule is 12 plus hrs per day. No time off. You work until youre physically drained and they dont care

Toxic Culture
Director, Learning & Development (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 12, 2017
From corporate headquarters to the country level, the overarching culture is to throw anyone possible under the bus as long as it gets you ahead. They value politics more than capability.

Division Safety Manager (Former Employee) –  Port Arthur, TXApril 10, 2017
This place will continue to work you if you are to the travling portion of it. If you are married with kids this isnt the place for you. If you like to travel this is the place for you.

SLOW FROM SEP.-DEC; AND PICKS UP MID JAN

Regional HSE Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Denver, ColoradoApril 7, 2017
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.
Pros
Easy Transfers from branches for advancement
Cons
Many hours of work are required

General to fun work place but poor management
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Fort Monroe, VAApril 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.
Pros
General employee relations
Cons
Poor low and mid level management structure and relations experience

Mechanic (Current Employee) –  North East, MDApril 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 .

Unorganized, Lots of OT
Assisstant Dispatch/Technician (Former Employee) –  North East, MDMarch 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.
Pros
Benefits and unlimited overtime
Cons
No life with working unllimited hours all the time. 24/7 on-call

Too much favoritism from management towards certain people
Driver / Operator (Former Employee) –  New Lenox, ILMarch 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.
Pros

Cons
Work and pay
