Great team environment, welcoming, supportive
After working for Veolia- waste management, i most definitely will never look at a bin the same again, there are so many different sorts, and for different things which makes it important that work and bookings were correct as one person's error can lead to another 5 other error error ultimately then the driver in turn the customer.
But we all make mistakes as its a very involved job, which was all so very new to me, but found it extremely interesting as was something always new popping up, and the support if made a error was always constructive criticism and spent time with you to help teach you how to fix error or avoid for the future.

Productive and supportive workplace
A typical day includes onsite and a bit of office work. A very good work environment with very helping team mates. The work culture is not very fast paced.

The culture is poor as a result of the shambolic management
Poor management and culture with no coordinated direction or any real concern for the wellbeing of employees; dispite the constant preaching of "are you ok". The ongoing internal politics, compounded by a poorly implemented restructure, creates a dysfunctional and unhealthy work environment.

Busy and fast paced.
Very busy and stressful. The most enjoyable part of the job was going home. I don't mind doing hard work but when you are standing on your feet for 10 hours a day in the same spot it becomes very painful.
Cons
Long hours

Reliable work
I worked there for about 4years, enjoyed the work as it was casual and gave me a lot of free time for myself and family. The management were fair and the workmates were great to work with. Over all I enjoyed my time at Veolia .

A 19th century workhouse
Rife with bullying, intimidating behaviour, zero work life balance and a below average salary. Do not even consider working for this company, you will regret it. Veolia has to be the worst company I’ve ever worked for.

I enjoyed working as a refractory installer for Veolia. The only reason I left was because I sustained an injury, which I felt I was unable to for fill my duties due to my injuries, therefore I felt inadequate and needed to move aside and let younger and stronger personnel to take over. Therefore I resigned to allow my arms to heal, and hopefully find more suitable employment.

Good place
Overall I had a really great time there. I went in as a 3 month temp and ended up staying there for an extra 5 months. I met some great people. Big company doing the right thing.
Pros
I had flexi time, I could work from home when things couldn't work out at the office, Tool box meeting meant free meals.
Cons
You need to be under the right management to have a good experience I've heard.

Bad management team. Cant think outside the box. Like beingbin a gentlemans club, bad culture, no care given to older employees
Terrible management team. None hold truck licences, expect travel times to be similar to cars. Not a lot of thought goes into runs, favoritism big problem. Early starts aren't bad, but do not get concept of peak hour traffic or congestion, totally about jobs completed to numbers needed to meet target.
Pros
Good money
Cons
Long hours, n unreachable targets that you get held accountable for

Will be required to operate equipment that does not comply with regulations
I really needed money so spent 2 years driving faulty dangerous trucks doing dangerous non compliant works to meet managements numbers so they can get their bonuses.

The DVR is a joke, the hazard reporting even funnier.

Everyone from the VOL team and upwards has been trained to dump blame on the operators.


They push you to utilize unsafe work practices in unsafe equipment and when things go wrong they blame you saying you shouldn't have done the job.


Veolia has a $3000 damage threshold, regardless if the accident or incident was your fault or not and the damage bill exceeds $3000 its a guaranteed written warning for the operator that started the key.


Because of the workplace ethos colleagues will say all the right things to your face but stab you in the back without hesitation just to keep their jobs.


Avoid Veolia at all cost unless needing a financial stepping stone until another job comes along.
Pros
Payed weekly although the rates are low
Cons
the whole operation is corrupt, favorites or those that brown nose get the easy stuff
