    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Republic Services.

    Interview

    Empty promises, "the sky is the limit" is repeadtly used. It's fairly unprofessional, and maybe even a little disrespectful of your time. The management has a very nonchalant attitude about the process, and does not seem to take many notes, if any. Definitely make you feel as though you "need" them, instead of you being an asset.

    I had a first round interview a few weeks later. The first round interview was on campus and it was with two employees. The two employees were rather young and new to the company which I found surprising. The first round was a breeze.
