- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. I interviewed at Waste Management (Lombard, IL) in May 2015.
It was horrible. The recruiter had it in his mind that I was not a good fit from the start no matter how much I explained my experience would equate to the role. I really wish I would have been allowed to speak to someone else or interview in person.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Waste Management (San Diego, CA) in May 2015.
I approached the interview very unprepared. I thought it was going to be an explanatory thing from the recruiter and didn't realize it was an interview. I was referred to the recruiter by an employment agency who just said to call this person. I wasn't very interested in the position and misunderstood the employment agencies recommendation.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Waste Management (Albany, NY) in May 2015.
I was contacted within two hours of posting my resume online. I completed a telephone screening a few days later and then a formal interview the following week. The interview was conducted by five people: my would-be direct supervisor, one HR person, and three current Route Managers. We had a very thorough conversation about the company and what would be expected of me as well as my personal work history. I felt really good about it when I left but ultimately did not get a job offer.

I applied online. I interviewed at Waste Management.
I have phone interviewed with Waste Management for a Recruiter role twice. The first time, in 2013, the interviewer was extremely rude and cut me off multiple times; I decided not to move forward. In 2015, I decided to apply again, and a different interviewer was also extremely rude and caused me to not move forward with the process. I will not apply again - the culture of the Talent Acquisition department at HQ appears to be very toxic, with Recruiters being condescending on the phone and cutting you off in order to churn through questions.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Waste Management (Framingham, MA) in March 2015.
I submitted my resume and filled out Waste Management's online forms. That same afternoon, I was contacted by a recruiter, answered a few questions, and was given an interview date. The interview was pleasant, informative, and professional. The interviewer seemed impressed with my resume and experience. I was informed that I would hear from them in 2 weeks if there was an offer for me. I will post with an update when I hear back from WM or in 3 weeks. Whichever comes first.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. I interviewed at Waste Management in February 2015.
2 interviews during a period of 2 months in early 2015. The interviewers were hiring for only 1 manager at their location. I was not given an offer, but confused when I saw the job was still being posted months later. I felt my experience interviewing with the company was a waste of time and wish they would have been straight forward after my first interview with them. I'm not sure if they were really trying to fill a position or get information to help their business.

I applied online. I interviewed at Waste Management in January 2015.
Went in for an interview and the manager for that terminal never even showed. I left my number and resume. No call, just an email saying they were looking at other applicants.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Waste Management in January 2015.
I applied online and got a receipt of application e-mail immediately. I received a phone call to ask if I was still interested and if I had time for a brief phone interview. They proceeded to ask about my preventative maintenance background with regards to diesel, electrical, & air brakes systems. I only have six months experience, they said I needed one year experience despite the no experience or education requirements listed on their site, which promptly ended the interview.
