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.

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

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week – 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.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Waste Management (Atlanta, GA) in May 2011.
First talked to a recruiter on the phone, then in person interview with two managers, asked about previous sales experience. It was a conversation about sales techniques and my own questions about the corporate culture and upward mobility. Not a tough interview at all.

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
