      Former Employee, more than 1 year

      Very bad company

      Oct 8, 2017 - Operations Supervisor in Coquitlam, BC

      Pros

      There aren't a lot of pros- the drivers are good people, but as a manager here you are expected to write them up and fire them for silly drive camera videos

      Cons

      Too many to list. Under paid, poorly treated, no advancement opertunities. As a front line manager you drive around paint bins and clean up garbage for 14 hours a day. This job is good for a retired garbage man, not someone looking to advance their career or gain any kind of experience. This was a nightmare in my caeeer that I have wiped from my life

      Pros

      Growing company, Industry that is ressession proof. There are many good people that work at IESI. It can be a fast paced environment.

      Cons

      The company is becoming less decentralized and there are many managers and executives that are being taken from competing companies that dont have the philosophical ideals that the company was founded upon.
