There were excellent medical benefits, pay and 401k match. For the most part a good company to work for. Difficult physical labor throughout the year, work in all types of weather. Able to train and move up to new positions quickly. Tough work/life balance
older facility good benefits, dirty work environment, pay is better than average, hard hard work but can be rewarding. long hours and many dangerous situations. lots of temperature extreams. not for light weights!

Covanta has been a great place for me as far as personal growth goes, it has its ups and downs but a lot can be learned. They offer a good benefit package and the compensation is decent. there are a lot of great people working for the company.
Covanta is a good place to work. The co-workers here are team players and are really helpful. Since I started working here, I have learned a lot and am very appreciative to the team for the many improvements that we have accomplished.

Teaches you a lot about environment and safety. Also teaches you your self is money more important or family. I have been able to do a lot while working for this company. They take pride in safety and it takes a team to make that happen.
Don't trust management and get the job discription before hand

Management will lie to you just to get you in the door. Job and benefits were not at all what I was told it would be. Insurance was higher and pay was less after I accepted the job and started. Nastiest place I've ever worked with hazardous waste all around. Stay away from this site, especially management.
