Very little focus on training and/or health and safety
Very high turnover rate
Equipment and vehicles are old, used and abused just like the employees.
Everyone is overworked, no work life balance. Your life belongs to the company. Expect to be on-call for emergency response 24/7/365, get the guilt trip for making plans on your time off if a supervisor or manager calls you after hours.
You’re working for an equity firm. Money is all that matters. Front line employees are expected to perform tasks on shoestring budgets. Expectations are not at all clear, it’s just all about the bottom line.

This place is an absolute joke. It's almost like people are playing office, not working for a strong and growing company.
There are meetings after meetings which to do not go anywhere or accomplish anything. It's basically people killing time to fill the day. There's always something happening, and nothing going on.
The most difficult part of working for this company is they do not pay their bills in a timely matter. Therefore you're always scrambling to find another solution because you've been cutoff from ever dealing with outsiders again due to the horrible payment history of NRC.
Lastly, the managers are about as condescending as you can be. They think they're high and mighty. Meanwhile, they'll jump ship in a second, as they did when I was there.

NRC is filled with employees that work hard. The field teams work in all kinds of weather conditions and I really appreciate their dedication. This industry is competitive, so pulling steady work to hit budget targets has been challenging for many of the offices.
Daily multi-tasking based on schedule and emergency response situations Not a routine job, work day is not a typical 9 to 5 type job Diverse clientele ranging from private homeowners to national accounts

This company is an absolute joke. The equipment is junk. Management expects you to “just figure it out” with respect to working with broken equipment. The company and upper management will not follow compliance because of cost. Washington branches are under investigation by the Department of Ecology. They make promises to rail and oil clients that they can’t even come close to keeping.

If you have a class A Clean record this is not the place for you. All you will see is old out dated equipment. the don't work and looks like junk. And is run under ENPRO. You will be on call 24/7 one week expecting to live for them on you days off. You will be send out to do jobs with no info on job you doing . Lots of responsibilities and they don't want to pay good $$ , oh take care there drivers... lots of people from old TMC. Has left NRC. due to so many changes more work. But no more pay And same old equipment the works half the time Good luck. Stay away from this. You been advice !! Help insurance is to expensive as well
Inconsistent management, poor leadership with unstable working conditions.

The leadership is lacking at all levels. Never felt like a positive place to work. Inconsistent schedule and work environment. Always told to make due without the proper equipment and safety supplies on a daily basis. Highly recommend looking at ALL other environmental companies before working at NRC.

You will be working for basically a investment firm not NRC itself, its all about the money for JFL. The new upper management are old PSC managers and are JFL puppets that will run this company into the ground just like they did PSC before they axed them. You will be lucky if you keep your job for 2-3 years before they get rid of you because of a bad month or two, I'm sorry but this kind of business practice is going to be the demise of this company RIP NRC.
1 Bad month and the fireing squad arives at your door....

I would not recommend working for this company. There are not many pros to working with this company. Before a merger and corperate buyout this was a great place to work. Once the merger and buyout by a national company went through things changed for the worse rapidly. I was lucky enough to be given a salary under the original company before the merger. As a mid to upper management level employee I was met with road blocks and multiple levels of managerial push back on most daily decisions. There was very little support from above. Pay raises were non existent for lower level employees. They put cost savings above and beyond quality of work or building new business.
Local management does care about their employees
Local management is not given the tools or resources to keep good employees
