Company really went downhill during last recession.
Wastewater Treatment Operator, Class II (Former Employee) – Caldwell, ID – July 13, 2018
Loved the wastewater industry. Pay and benefits good. The actual work was varied and interesting. Was a good company to work for until the recession hit. Then they insisted we get more and more done, with less help (positions cut) and in eight hours a day. Became impossible to do it all Became very stressful and impossible to get everything done right..
Good industry, good pay and benefits
Unrealistic expectations on the part of management.

Anonymous (Former Employee) – New York Metro – July 9, 2018
Company is financially being driven into the ground by bad decisions made at the managerial level. Overpaying for new business and sales personnel creating projects where money is lost on the bottom line.
I enjoyed the atmosphere with the company at each day I would come to work. The employees and dispatch were very understanding and friendly.

Veolia has provided me with benefits and a foundation for growth. The team of employees and the environment were exceptional and as a previous employee, I definitely recommend this company for the next new hire.
Intern (Former Employee) – South Boston, MA – June 22, 2018
All of the employees were extremely friendly and always willing to help you and answer any questions you may have had about the position. Management was well invested in creating an amicable workspace while still maintaining a professional environment.
Benefits Supervisor (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 14, 2018
Very busy and stressful during the day putting out many fires. I learned that you have to take initiative for yourself as the company does not for it's employees. Management could be ran better with the right individuals. The culture of Veolia is that work comes first and family comes second. The hardest part of the job were the upper management demands. The most enjoyable part of my job was helping people in the field.

MATERIAL HANDLER II (Current Employee) – Port Arthur, TX – June 10, 2018
In a typical day I get to work at 5am and get on the incinerator around 5:30 to make relief. Then I work on the conveyor for four hours then rotate with other team members. I have learned how to multitask in a fast paced environment and to stay organized while on the platform. I really appreciate the guidance of the management team.

Supervisor-Tank Services (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 1, 2018
I worked hard for Veolia for over four years. In this time, two branches were closed down due to poor management and I was forced into a new department I was not familiar with. Minimal support from the management team.
Process Control Engineer (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 23, 2018
Reviewing data, create charts and analysis of the process. The hardest part of the job was weather dependents because we have to make adjustments according to it. The most enjoyable part was working with the different areas of the plant such as energy, wet end and dry end. Workplace culture was dual. New management has the policy of looking into individual rather than emphases in the process to find solutions.
