    So - What Do You Know About Facilities Company VEOLIA ?

    My current employer has lost the contract with our local Council for water maintainance , and VEOLIA has won the new contract.

    Does anyone work for them , has worked for them , knows someone who worked for them?

    So far we dont have much information and are wanting to be prepared before we jump ship to a new company.

    Thanks in advance.

    They do the water here too, Queenstown Lakes District. Apart from that all I know is they have new tidy gear/4x4s and always seem to be parked somewhere sitting in ute doing fuck all. Sounds all good! Unless of course your rates are paying

    Veolia is a French company I believe.
    I see that the guys are catching the rhythm of 35 hours/ week then ;-)

    Think they also have something to do with the trains in Auckland.

    I'm hoping someone here works for them or knows someone who does so I can talk openly and out of work hours about the way the company operates. So far I'm not hearing a lot of positive stuff from my limited sources.

    Muzza, Friwi is correct in that they are a large French owned environmental services company. I believe that New Zealand is a subsidiary of the Australian business.

    I am up with the play on the public face of the company. Have had their managers blowing smoke up our arses recently but life has taught me that the initial promises tend to be quickly lost in interpretation. Would be nice to talk to field staff to find out what they are "really" like .

    I've had dealings with both Veolia train staff in Auckland as well as Water reticulation and maintenance in South Auckland. The staff are as you would expect just like any other company service reps, but it is obvious that the staff are stressed. On one occasion the rep turned up much later than he advised, then his colleague turned up and they had an argument (really aggro) in front of me (the client) about communication and work load. Sounded like the subordinate worker was slacking off while the supervisor (my rep) was running around trying to do the work of two men. He apologised but I was pretty shocked to say the least. The trains are a joke and the debacle which surrounded the Rugby World Cup I blame directly on Veolia's staff and management, not their client Auckland Transport.
    So, I'd say, join this company with trepidation. Sorry mate. Good luck

    Thats cool - I wanted to hear what others thought as there is very little information on line other than the usual corporate smokescreen and weasel words. There is nothing good about the company when you start digging deeper , for what little there is available. Have an interview with them on Thursday so forewarned is fore-armed , as they say.
