    I have been working at Waste Connections full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I've been working here for two years, and like most companies, there are several pros and cons. This company has a clear vision of where it wants to go for the future which is evident by it's growth in volume and price. The company has focused on smaller markets where there is less competition, making it easier to sell the service. There is also a good amount of training for the new reps who are being introduced into the market. Work/life balance has been great.

    Cons

    Commission structure is a bit sketchy. I've seen the payouts change several times now since I started working for Waste Connections...none were in the reps' favor. There is still money to be made in the market though. Reps are compensated for gas, but it's a set monthly amount that gets taxed instead of a mileage reimbursement. Those are my main concerns. Most everything else would be considered nitpicking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Changes need to be made to the commission structure that are more favorable to the rep. The company is moving in the right direction. Keep the people out in the field happy and this company will continue to show strong growth in volume.
