    Poor Communication

    Equipment Operator/Driver (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits are on par with the industry. Pay scale is good.
    Fair amount of PTO.

    ConsCommunication is lacking on most levels, employees are left to self manage days off and coverages with no real input from management. The most basic of training on equipment so you don't get hurt. No oversite . Better to complain to your truck, it gets the same result and you wont get fired. No written or posted schedules.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut the dead weight of mid level management, they are just mocking you behind your back.
    Hold lead positions accountable do not allow them to pencil whip paperwork .

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    While working at Republic Services

    Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) Lauderhill, FL (US)

    ProsI liked some people that I worked with and for . It can be a good company and the benefits are descent . At one time I use to love to come to work

    ConsIn this company it is not what you know but who you know ,I have seen friends of the bosses kids come there and get jobs not knowing one thing about what is going on

    Advice to Senior Managementget a clue do right by your people and your people will do right by you. The CEO came from the bottom to the top and you would think that at least he would understand how to treat your working people

    Great but no consistency what so ever

    Scale Operator (Former Employee) Fort Worth, TX (US)

    ProsGood benefits and fair pay, co workers are great just management needs some work to be more understanding and caring

    ConsCrazy busy, rude customers, need thick skin. Managers will throw you under bus to save themselves for being possible for anything and teach you how to correctly handle papers at first but then tells you to let a lot of things to slide.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be selfish and think about your employees and put their shoes on and try to walk, and get off your high horse.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Company Amazing Growth Opportunities

    National Accounts (Current Employee) Scottsdale, AZ (US)

    ProsGreat opportunities, amazing teams, nice environment to work in.

    ConsLack of qualified leaders, behind the times infrastructure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend some time in the day to day. So the craziness from the lack of infrastructure and accountability doesn't constantly get road blocked from you from mid-management.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
