Truck Driver | Toronto, ON | 26 mars 2018
Valuable work experience
On a typical day, I started early in the morning and performed my truck pre-trip inspections, completed my DVIR and got repairs and/or maintenance performed as needed. When I was able to leave the yard, I started in the downtown area and worked to complete my route, doing my best to finish everything I could; I was pulling bins, some of them heavy and/or for a long distance to dump in my truck (PHYSICALLY DEMANDING/HAND-BOMBING!). I would spend anywhere between two minutes and two hours at a place because I went from the smallest of places to the biggest of places to perform service and driving times would vary from five-ten minutes to one hour between locations. Working for GFL near the downtown Toronto area was my overall best and most beneficial working experience (because a tough job can be a good job); My advice to another person is work hard, work with a sense of urgency and drive safely because it does pay off Be courteous, friendly and respectful with all of your co-workers, supervisors, mechanics, other GFL employees and management and you will be respected and accepted The management treated me fairly, within reason (THAT WAS MY EXPERIENCE) The drivers were a pretty good group to work with and get along with(I see some of them around my neighbourhood sometimes). Tough working environment not for everyone, only resilient people Working for GFL is an opportunity to earn decent money, i.e. getting some overtime hours pays off; it is not a job or company to dismiss if
Points positifsDecent earnings with overtime

Absolute chaos
It is hard to comprehend the daily chaos at GFL. This IS the workplace culture. Minimal planning and those plans are changed at the drop of the hat. There is always a manager, supervisor or office type who swoops in, changing everything about the operation at a moments notice. For myself, a typical work day starts with a crushing load of pickups and work. I work 12-14 hour days. The dispatchers gives you more work than can possibly be done, either because of distance and number of pickups or because the truck will be overweight. Almost all the drivers at our location drive overweight. This is the only way we can "keep up with the pace." Those who don't are slowly pushed out. The equipment is passable at best. There is zero time at my location allotted for maintenance. I have been pushed out several times in a truck that does not meet compliance. To refuse to drive that vehicle will mean the end for you at GFL. They will not formally get rid of you, but make work so horrible you quit. The most enjoyable part of the job is the end of the work day, followed by pay day. I have been employed full time for 30 years and rarely jump ship. I am regarded by my manager and customers as a skilled operator with 15 years experience in my field. Yet GFL keeps breaking its promises of training, new equipment, proper maintenance regularly etc while demanding 120% everyday. Quite frankly, I am just waiting for a similar position to become open at one of our competitors and will leave t

Do not work here
Management is the worst. Reporting safety issues does you no good. Was told to just pick up your route or we will find someone else to do your job. Managers do not investigate incidents and tell drivers just to pay for them. HR does nothing to fix any problems you might have. If you have an issue that is making your performance go down, you better fix it yourself or they will find a way to fire you. Oh by the way, if you get fired, DO NOT expect to find another job because whoever answers calls from future employers will slander you. If you have personal issues that impact your driving, just put in your 2 week notice. You will be fired for having anxiety due to family life. They have no compassion for their employees, or do anything to help them. You are making a bad decision to work for this company. Managers defiantly have favorites, and if your a immigrant...forget it. Before you work here I suggest researching the Labour Board or Employment Standards. The equipment breaks down constantly, but that is expected because you driving a heavy duty truck constantly hauling 8 tons to the dump 3 or 4 times a day (10 to 16 hrs a day). Mechanic staff is the best part of the Winnipeg GFL. They are pretty awesome. They do the best with what they have. When I was there GFL could not pay for the outside work to be done on trucks, and I would go months without my assigned truck. Not mention they keep raising rates on commercial service and would not be surpr

Disrespectful - unsafe
I did an unsafe work refusal at their paint shop which had over 10 violations of a serious nature. I know because I was with the S.W. Alberta Safety Rep in the investigations. This made the supervisor unfortunately look stupid. I paid for that by in my opinion being pigeon holed. Six months later I worked in a ergonomically unsound truck as a swamper and as a result after the 12 hour shift I spent 3 months on WCB. A week later the driver who was with me when my discomfort turned to injury was climbing into his truck using a 3 point contact when the steps of the truck gave way injuring him also. The last day of my WCB claim I was let go with no explanation. Never had a bad evaluation there. When I first started I was given Tim Horton Cards for doing a good job. The employees I worked with were good people. High turnover and sad stories. On several occasions it was reported that my passenger door was flying open on corners and bumps but nothing was done about it. I would go out as a swamper holding on for dear life in 13 hour shifts. I feel safe in telling my story. I have not divulged any company practices as agreed by my signing just my story of 15 months there. Further- the damage to my personal vehicle on their property 12 months ago has not even received a response with regard to what will be done -compensation or no compensation (DISRESPECTFUL)

Stay Away Not Worth the Effort!
Unfortunately when your hired on your told how good the company is blah blah blah. Your also told you would see raises after 3 months and then every year after that. This is not the case after working their 8 months I still did not see a raise and during a meeting we were told after running two trips a day 12-14 hr days that they wanted to see more effort from drivers to be considered for a raise. Hard to do when your running old equipment that is not maintained. The only time something was fixed was when the trucks or trailers were undrivable and it was taking from their pockets. The hours were good but with the new contract that all changed recently. Now your lucky to see 6-7 hours a day depending if you run the morning or afternoon shift, which means no overtime. Mornings your up any where between 2:00 and 3:00 AM. I also learned that the company does not follow their own policies and you can be let go for absolutely no reason at all. . The main management will delegate supervisor duties to whoever they think might be a good scapegoat and therefore makes it hard to know who to listen too as everyone seemed to think they were above you. The most enjoyable part of the job is not working their any more. Hard to run a trucking division with management who has no background in trucking!

Toxic workplace
This place is ridiculous. The lack of training, lack of leadership in this company, and the very toxic environment were some of the reasons why I did not return. Everyone worked against one another - no one worked as a team. Managers have absolutely no clue and dont care about what is going on in the shop and think the problems will fix themselves. Trucks are filthy and rundown. Covered in rat droppings and some so bad they make you gag when you get in. Mechanics are considered as the bottom of the barrel in this shop and are treated as such. Never a "thank you" or "good job" but if you make one mistake you are branded as incompetent. Favoritism and backstabbing is rampant and the few hard workers are treated poorly while the lazy ones are put on a pedestal. Only the rear end kissers get ahead in this place. People are miserable, constantly whining about something and you rarely see a smile. Most have given up on things ever getting better here. I absolutely dreaded coming to work everyday and dealing with the politics. No service manuals and no training other than what you can find on Youtube. The shop isn’t even equipped to repair anything as all the Princess Auto equipment is either broken or worn out, shop is filthy and has so much junk that you can barely move around, and it’s freezing cold in the winter since the heaters barely work. You’re better off being jobless than to work here.

A workplace where one is an owned piece of equipment and not a person.
Management and Administration operate on the basis of favoritism and different rules for different employees. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds. They maintain a lack of sensitivity to the personal needs of its labour force and drivers. Medical and personal after hours appointments are irrelevant to them as they force you to work extremely long hours on a daily basis, even exceeding company policies and Ministry regulations. They pay is minimal and raises are non existent with the exception of the annual Cost of Living Adjustment, which is mandatory by law. There are no incentives nor bonuses. Even the "Christmas Bonus" is a mere slap in the face with a $50 gift card to a place few employees shop. The benefit package was decent but even that has been reduced. The annual maximum for Physiotherapy, Massage, Chiropractic etc was reduced from $1000 per annum to $600 per annum during a time when the cost of living is drastically increasing at an absorbent rate! This is only a company I would recommend working for strictly out of desperation! They profess workplace safety but seldom practice it. The work staff is deemed "disposable". Their equipment is unreliable and old and dilapidated.
Points positifsIt is a place of employment. An average benefit package.
Points négatifsToo many to list!

The thought of going in just stresses you out
Management loves to preach health and safety but fails to enforce it when it comes down to the drivers. Trucks that belong in the junk yard and wouldn't pass DOT break down all the time. They'll resurrect the trucks with band aid fixes or not at all and put it off to the wall in the (bone)yard. Most have no AC in 150 degree cabs, or if it doesn't have heat they'll send you out in -40c even if you're unable to defrost the windscreen, and bring you back anyway. Putting new engines in 20yr old rusted out rolling dumpsters, losing contracts due to coolant leaks on property, dumpsters/bins that are so old and have been used for decades are simply repainted and sent off to new customers despite condition and nasty stuff stuck inside etc. No one has a head on their shoulders here, the operations manager is nowhere to be found, the supervisors are so stressed out with their own situations that they'll pass on their own work to dispatch. Can't get a handle on the drivers in the morning even if no one has a printed route and they couldn't care less if you barely made it to the end of your 14 hour grueling shift. The money is decent but, seriously questionable. Get the experience if you're trying to be a Class 1/3 driver and move on swiftly.

Equipment Operator | Fort St. John, BC | 28 nov. 2017
Nice co workers! But that's about it....
The FSJ regional landfill site needs to hire a new management team to run this site. It's my opinion that the site is poorly operated by an inexperienced and sometimes inappropriate management team. They have little to no training or safery programs active on site plus the hourly wage is honestly very low for with the multiple jobs they want you to preform and in and around strong nauseous fumes, biohazard and General filth that comes with working on an active face of a landfill site.(poorly managed) $17 or $18 an hour with a few decent benefits in Fort St John is not enough...There are no tips to help out Don't take my review the wrong way though. The people that work there are nice enough and for some people, any job will I would say it's better than nothing...I would also like to add that my review is not directed at The GFL company as a whole or the Regional district of Fort St John but specifically The Fort St John regional Landfill site's on-site managers. I would rather work at timmies for a couple bucks an hour less and a nicer

Points négatifsPoor onsite management team..low hazard pay..not well structured or well organized on site.

Very shady unethical work enviroment
There is alot of harrassment and bullying. They under pay everyone and lie to employees about raises in fact they pay the lowest in calgary your better off going to WM, BFI, grabage good guys etc. They over over work you and treat you so terribly that all workers want to unionize. They are terrified of a union due to lack of following government labour laws and will interrogate you if they think you know something. They do not follow labour code and will fire you without cause if you dont sacrifice your life for them. I've seen multiple people be harrashed as I was and if you try to go to head office they will make your life very difficult then get rid of you. If you are willing to work 6 days a week 12-14 hours being there slave you are aloud to tell other employees to f@#% off in front of staff be racist and call people a f!@@₩$. I've seen that with my own eyes before I left the company. There is one female front load driver they are under paying by $4 an hour.. last I asked she is stil being under paid for her position. I highly reccomend a different company.

If there's no issues, freedom to get what needs to be done on your own time.
Customer service is key as we have interaction everyday with some amazing business owners that truly rely on the services that we provide. You have to be on your toes, as demands fluctuate and routes get shuffled to accommodate an ever-changing economy of waste services. Equipment breakdowns and issues need to be addressed as they come in, leaving you to a late night and little thanks as you're left to figure it out. Hours are essentially unlimited within reason, whatever it takes to get the job done. New management has been lackluster to say the least. Little communication and even less sight of them being in the office. Have an issue or question? Good luck getting even a response. I, personally, enjoy what I do and get satisfaction out of providing the services to companies that rely on me. I have great interactions with the owners of these shops, their employees, and other vendors. In the field, it is a hands-on "how's the family? What can I help with"? type of career. Unfortunately, with any corporation, there are hurdles and some of them come at great cost. It has been a struggle with the transition, over 3 years, from being bought out by a multinational company. The benefits, industry standard, are reasonable or lacking depending where you've come from. Pay raises are typically at cost-of-living, sometimes less. Commission hasn't been accurate in the 5 years I have been here - with little explanation as to why. Some good people work here and they care... the rest
Points positifsVery little management over your shoulder. Just get your work done and there won't be an issue.
Points négatifsAny issues? Good luck getting in touch with management to help.

Shrinking customer base and losing hours.
GFL Environmental bought out WCA Waste. After the buyout, they increased rates on customers by double or triple. This caused customers to begin leaving in mass. This caused drivers to begin to lose hours as routes shrunk. Local management said they were aware of the issue, but unable to intervene. At times, management seemed to be blaming drivers for the loss of customers, due to a lack of customer service. When the largest complaint from customers was billing and billing issues. Customers complained of being on hold for hours with no answer, unable to access online payments or having their accounts being inaccurate. Communications between the business office and operations was poor as well. Customers accounts would be placed into suspension without reason and new starts would not be listed, for example. Trucks were decently repaired and maintained, depending upon the mechanic who worked on it. Some cared, some didn't. Management was decent, but seemed to be more of not rocking the boat type of mentality. They could also be passive aggressive with approaching issues.
Points positifsMost schedules have weekends off, major holidays off, all you can eat, some shifts have four day work weeks
Points négatifsLoss of business, frequent breakdowns, some sights and smells

I would raise everyone's pay to industry standard as gfl pays the worst in calgary area. I would punish people who harass bully and are racist to other employees as gfl allows it. I would make sure equipment is safe and road worthy rather then the unsafe trucks that would FAIL DOT standards.

Get your experience if you are a new driver and get out asap.They will push you for speed and tonnage, but if there's an accident they do not know you. Do not ignore the warnings. Do not work here. This is why they are willing to pay agencies $24/hr for a driver, but only $18 to full time experienced drivers. They cannot hold on to competent workers.
