    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Covanta full-time (More than a year)


    -Great benefits -Competitive pay -Semi-frequent travel -Several opportunities for advancement (not just in your organization, but in other departments too)


    -Semi-frequent travel -Short manpower, so those remaining are working very hard -Work/Life balance leans more toward work -Change out of very senior management, so the implementation of changes are painful for some

    Advice to Management

    -Care more about the operators and others who are not at the top of the food chain -Hire more people to get better rotations and reliefs

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Covanta (Morristown, NJ).


    Interview process was very straightforward. Set up a date and time a few days beforehand. Arrived at office for 1:1 interview which lasted about 30 minutes. Received an offer later that day.
