Casella Waste Systems Reviews
Pros – you will get a check and all kinds of hours
Cons – after ten years of working there i need time of for medical reason and went out on a FMLA. after my 12 weeks i need a couple more weeks of physical thearpy and was layed off and told to come back and reapply and i would have to start at a starting wage and benefits, they constantly push drivers to skip lunch breaks to keep the numbers looking good. and they also push you to do unsafe or even illegal things to make the customer happy no matter what and then if something happens its the drivers fault.
Advice to Senior Management – try to work more than 25 or 3o hours a week while making the drivers work 60. Try listening to employees and maybe buy some new equipment instead of 45000 pickups for the managment to haul there campers and boats around with. they need to cut there top managment and low managment by a third
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – You will receive a paycheck. There are some exceptional people working here, however they are the hourly employees.
Cons – Casella pays its employees the bare minimum despite having extremely dedicated, hard working intelligent individuals working for them. The company allows management to make decisions concerning terminating an employee based on whether the manager 'likes' an individual not on the persons job performance. Casella has gone through an excessive amount of management changes which has caused confusion for employees because new management changes everything, even what worked. Employees don't know who they should report to.
Advice to Senior Management – Employees are often asked for what they need or what their thoughts are but it doesn't appear anyone ever actually listens. Dedicated, productive, and valuable employees are over looked and / or fired because they don't fit in some sort of 'mold'. Employees sacrifice personal time and work off the clock just to get the job done, maybe you should ask why.
Pros – Dedicated employees, good benefits, and a passionate CEO.
Cons – Top down management, employees feel they have no voice with minimal if any reward for their hard work and efforts, and leaders who are chosen because of who they know, not because they are the best fit.
Advice to Senior Management – Take some of the leadership advice you feed to your people. Put more effort in the selection process of your leaders so your hard working hourly employees can feel that pride they once had.
