    Found them on my University Career Site. They were prompt with the first two interviews but after that didn't communicate back for a while. Interviews were more conversations and seemed easy. Just went through the resume.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Waste Management (Houston, TX) in March 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty straighforward and I did my best to stay cool calm and collected but after that I was not told if I had won the position. I then went home. About a week later an HR lady called and said that if I could come in for some more interrogation questions so I did and again I was stressed before the interview. But in the end they awarded me the job.

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Waste Management in January 2015.

    Interview

    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.

Pros: “The hours are the highlight of this job! The latest shift ends at 5:30. There is also a shift that allows you to work four 10 hour days! The pay is decent for the amount of hours worked...”“The hours are the highlight of this job! The latest shift ends at 5:30. There is also a shift that allows you to work four 10 hour days! The pay is decent for the amount of hours worked, but only if you're in the sales queue. It sucks if you're not, but I don't think most of them even care because they can hardly make a sale anyway. My supervisors, Andy and Jake were awsome! Lastly, the popcorn is amazing there :)” – Full Review
