This bussiness has closed down.
Lead Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDOctober 8, 2018
Management was terrible. Most times showing up at 10 am and redirecting work. Time management was something else to see. One of the worst places to work.

Although the compensation was very good, as a company Veolia is only concerned about the almighty dollar and does not value their employees. I have nothing else to say.

Too much to discuss and do not wish to disclose. I do not like taking these online surveys. If they persist I will quit using your site. This should not be mandatory

Wonderful company, however, poor Management within the Houston Office
Administrator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXSeptember 27, 2018
Pros: The company offers great benefits. Stocks, 401k, Health Insurance, school reimbursement, etc. Most coworkers were friendly and helpful. The office environment improved within the past few months. Drinking stations were added as well as an exercise program once a week, and there was an improvement on office seating arrangements.

Cons: There is not very much growth within the Houston office. Many lay off's within the company this past year. Houston management is poor and disorganized. I worked roughly 45 to 55 hours each week. My work load was immense and the hierarchical organization was unclear. It is also close to impossible to advance from within the company. Most employees in my specific department have worked there less than two years- There is a high turn over rate.

Fair employer very concerned with safety
Utility Worker (Former Employee) –  Gresham, ORSeptember 22, 2018
Very smart and hard working employees, fun to work with. Management over empowered employees, should have stepped in and taken control when some issues arose, in my opinion. I learned a lot about the wastewater process and improved my mechanical skills. The hardest part of the job was being on call during off hours.

Our depot has a good bunch of men to work with we can have alaugh and a joke before we leave for our days work, however if you want advancement you will be ok if you face fits or you have a friend or relative high up in the company.
