    Pros

    Great company, great pay, great working environment, and a good location. Tervita’s fast pace environment made you days go by fast.

    Cons

    Shallow pockets led to old overused equipment. Most of our time was servicing our own equipment. Plus falling oil prices led to large lay-offs.

    Advice to Management

    Line of credit and make good investments

    I worked at Tervita (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great entry level position for someone looking to break into the field. A couple of the supervisors a smart and you can learn a lot from them. The rest are fill ins and shouldn't be in their position.

    Cons

    No room for advancement and poor leadership. Minimal supervisors with experience to teach. No chance of a raise and low starting pay.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the lower level employees. Pay more attention to your strongest employees and less to those that are more concerned with bringing their peers down to make themselves look better.
