What don't you like about working at Veolia Environmental Services?

"Travel- when I interviewed I was told I would be traveling 25% of the time. In reality as soon as I started working I was traveling by car new Orleans, Shreveport, baton rouge, Dallas, Lubbock, San Antonio. You name it I was there. Compensation was inadequate. I was given and $82 stipend for hotel room and three meals... Tell me what decent place you can get for 82 dollars plus meals!!! come on... I was the only Hispanic person working there so I felt some of the jokes they would tell were inappropriate. I was always hesitant to bring it up to HR since I did not want to be called a sissy at work. It was already hard enough being the youngest one there by at least 10 years. The place is not conducive to career growth."
