Disappointing - Bad Management
Operator (Ancien employé) –  Waterloo, ON1 juin 2019
I wish I had something good to say about Keolis, but there is just nothing good about them. This employer is not worried about the health or happiness of its employees. Too many people including myself have made the decision to resign because of this. Although most of my fellow team mates were good to work with, the constant badgering from the abusive management team was unbearable. There is very little communication between management and their employees, except for when they need a scape goat to unload their failures on.

Keolis Grand River LP has a lot potential to be a great place to work, but it will never be due to its current choice in management. I have never been more relieved to leave a place of employment in my life.

What to expect:
- Constant schedule changes
- High Stress
- Poor work/life balance
- High school maturity atmosphere
- Untrustworthy Management
- Poor pay and benefits
- General lack of professionalism
- Poor job security

Very Poorly Run - Extremely Bad Management
Maintenance Worker (Ancien employé) –  Waterloo, ON31 mai 2019
If you want to pursue a job in maintenance with opportunity to learn and challenge yourself do not apply here. There is no training for crucial equipment and lack of knowledge from Management to help with system failures. This job lacks technical work and is mostly general labour.

I have never worked anywhere that has hired so many managers that have no work experience in there positions. Promotions are based off of favouritism and not skill. If you are looking for a new long term career I caution you this may not be the place for you. This is a hard place to work for people who think for themselves and want grow as a professional in there field.

The entire company is under a lot of pressure from outside eyes and know one wants to take responsibility for anything. Having said that people are quickly tossed under bus, especially if you are lower on the totem pole. Constantly defending your worth and knowledge to people who don’t not understand the questions they are asking you is very frustrating. This is a very high stress environment.


You’ve been warned!
Points négatifs

No job security - terrible management
Employee (Ancien employé) –  Waterloo, ON30 mai 2019
The company needs a union otherwise they pick and choose who to promote or fire based on who is more of a personal favourite rather than quality of work. Place is full of gossip and stuck up people. Lots of upper management with no prior experience who treat employees unfairly if they simply don't like them. You could be doing your job and if management doesn't like you, your position and future there is conpromised. Terrible company who is all about revenue not quality of life for their employees. God forbid you have a dissability, they'll make up an excuse to terminate you as you're not considered a "normal" functioning human being to them.

High Stress - Unquantified Management
Technician (Ancien employé) –  Waterloo, ON21 avril 2019
Extremely unorganized environment. Management is under qualified and do not have experience in the fields they manage. The HR team is very unprofessional and green. Keolis operates on a very small budget there for most employees end up doing jobs they are far over qualified for. The buildings are very poorly cleaned do too lack of janitorial staff. People from other departments forced to clean washrooms (people with engineering degrees scrubbing toilets....) . The people at the top of the food chain treat others very poorly. There is a high turn over rate made up of mostly people quitting do to poor working conditions. Poor pay scale compared to other organizations in the same industry. Apply with caution.

Wonderful Place to work
Staff Member (Employé actuel) –  Waterloo, ON14 mars 2019
Since day one the company has told you that we are the investment and their most important asset and the back it up every day.

They take care of their employees and if issues or problems do arise they are fixed and worked on. It a fast growing and positive environment that tries to keep things fun. Always room to learn and do more...don't see the favoritism mentioned below at all.

And we get to work with trains and have new experiences everyday, I'd highly recommend working for this company to anyone.
Points positifs
Great Team, Great Leadership and they care about their employees

Bad upper management with no direction
Staff Member (Employé actuel) –  Waterloo, ON24 mai 2018
Poorly managed company. There is no leadership from upper management. Favouritism is commonplace, and they will hinder someones advancement opportunities so they can give the job to a buddy. Don't let the positive reviews fool you, I would believe the negative reviews more than the positive.

Great Company Culture, an organization you can grow with
Admin Assistant (Ancien employé) –  Waterloo, ON20 février 2018
Keolis is concerned not just with their own organizations growth but your own personal growth within it. They're constantly expanding and are looking for reliable and motivated individuals. Working here you have the opportunity to learn a lot on the job. Including skills and knowledge that you can take forward with you within the company and outside.
They have a supportive management team and as a whole are people always ready to help and teach. The company culture is positive and cooperative. I really enjoyed my time here and loved being apart of a project having a great social impact on the city of Waterloo.

Great place to work
Maintenance Instructor (Employé actuel) –  Waterloo, ON20 février 2018
This is a great place to work. Keolis has opportunities to develop the multiple skills needed to maintain and repair Light Rail Vehicles in the Kitchener/Waterloo area. You will be working with like-minded technicians, and will have an opportunity to work on the wide variety of electronic, electro-mechanical, mechanical, HVAC and hydraulic systems that are found on these types of vehicles. There is a positive and dynamic work force. Keolis recognizes and respects its employees work ability.

Don't be deceived.
Electro Mechanical Technician (Ancien employé) –  Waterloo2 mai 2017
You may see some earlier positive comments from some other employees and I have no doubt that when Keolis first started hiring it was a decent place to work but don't be deceived, it's not. Managers don't care about the employees and they treat people badly.
Points négatifs
Poor management and working enviornment
