    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Waste Management in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was brought in for a face to face interview in Houston for a manager position. As soon as one of the VPs saw me he looked shocked and said you look different on Linkedin. After that it was down hill. Each of the interviewers were less than friendly and one interviewer took a call from his wife that lasted about 20 minutes.
