    Pros

    Freedom and great pay. Fun workplace and room for advancement

    Cons

    No accountability. Managers need more lessons on how to hire better people.

    Advice to Management

    Crack down on the stagnant people that have been in the same position for years. The production that doesn't come out of them is costing the company money.

    It was a waste hauling company and you had to depend on driver to make sure trash was removed from a customer home, once u spoke with customer and said it would be done, but sometimes task was not completed.
