    Pros

    Good benefits and nice office

    Cons

    Pricing for customers was all over the map As soon as customer had signed contract, pricing could change Felt pricing issues borders on unethical behaviour

    I worked at Waste Management

    Pros

    - Wage was ok - Benefits are good - Drivers/Co-workers

    Cons

    - Management doesn't care about the employees or the customers - No one is held accountable for the loss of major accounts - Doesn't matter how good you are at your job you are replaceable - HR what HR, they are tied to Upper Management and are not there for the employees - Management is too busy trying to save their own jobs - Centralized is a joke and has cost the company customers, cost good people their jobs locally, but again it is all about the corporate dollar and what they want

    I have been working at Waste Management full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Weekly pay, good benefits, decent pay for the area

    Cons

    When you are sent for training in Arizona or Florida they preach saftey. I have found that while working at the Kansas City Kansas location this is not true. Dispatch doesn't know what they are doing, route managers don't seem to care either

    I have been working at Waste Management full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and smart company overall, management is pretty good. They treat you well overall and work with you if you work hard.

    Cons

    They work you hard and cap your pay. They only want to pay reps a certain amount but give you a lot of administration that takes up selling time. You are a one stop shop; customer service, billing, admin and help with some operational stuff. All of this plus you are expected to sell.

    I have been working at Waste Management full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of work good benefits and pay. Lots of overtime.

    Cons

    The company systematically discriminated against yards that are union by malicious not offering 401k to yards that are union. 70 plus hours a week that all go to taxes because employees don’t have 401k to help them with their tax burden while at the same time saving for retirement after a long career doing back breaking work.
