    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Republic Services.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Operations Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I was told Republic pays their Supervisors very well. Three years later, clearing many tough obstacles, only making 900 dollars more. Still at the bottom of my pay grade and people with less experience and drive are making way more. Asskissing and friends of the bosses family seem to be the only way of getting paid more. Sad, the CEO sounded like he had the right idea. Farce or people under him just don't care what he wants.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Republic Services.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted by a recruiter for an initial screening. My first interview was with 2 managers and I was presented with situational scenarios and asked extensive questions about change management, communication with stakeholders, and business analysis processes. The second interview was a 'meet and greet' with the BA team and included many of the same questions, but more surrounding ability to work on a team. There was an opportunity at the end of both interviews to ask questions.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baton Rouge, LA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baton Rouge, LA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Republic Services.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted to complete a phone interview. I attended the phone interview which was quite lengthy and outlined my previous skills and accomplishments. I felt very uncomfortable throughout the phone interview as the sales manager asked some seemingly personal questions which I didn't feel were appropriate. Nonetheless, I was eager to move forward as it appeared to be an excellent opportunity. I was thrilled to be contacted within 2 weeks for an in person interview. I arrived at the location early and was asked to come in for my in person interview. The interview process was extremely lengthy, much longer than a typical interview. I was quite appalled at the managers questions which were totally out of line and extremely inappropriate. To top it off I went through this over 2 hour interview process and was told by the manager at the very end...thank you for your time. We actually already hired someone for the position and they are starting this week.
