      Very bad company

      Pros

      There aren't a lot of pros- the drivers are good people, but as a manager here you are expected to write them up and fire them for silly drive camera videos

      Cons

      Too many to list. Under paid, poorly treated, no advancement opertunities. As a front line manager you drive around paint bins and clean up garbage for 14 hours a day. This job is good for a retired garbage man, not someone looking to advance their career or gain any kind of experience. This was a nightmare in my caeeer that I have wiped from my life

      Pros

      The ability to make many sales. Has SalesForce. Large staff. Average benefit package. Pretty good commission structure. Christmas party is a lot of fun.

      Cons

      A lot of politics mixed with some unhappy employees made for, at times, an exhausting place to work. Hard to take vacation and no banking or payout of vacation times seems unfair.
