    Pros

    Stable company. PTO was great. Pay was okay. Other benefits were pretty good.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover among finance group. Which you would think could be a pro because it could lead to promotions. However, promotions were based on who the hiring manager knew and not how well they performed

    Advice to Management

    Corporate is very disconnected with employees in the field. Budget guidance was always unreasonable.

    Pros

    This company is union. As a union shop it is a great place to work. The shop stewards are on top of things.

    Cons

    If you have a health issue. They let you go quick. They wont even try to put you in another position theyll just kick you to the curb. With out insurance it leaves really screwed. they don't even think twice it's just he's gotta go. A.D.A. Has no Baring with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are people. You should at least consider that when you take away there lively hoods. Just remember its the refuse industry. Your time will probably come at some point.

    Pros

    Good reimbursement for using your own vehicle (To start, then drops). . When you are new they take care of you.

    Cons

    After a year, doesnt matter if you are the best selling rep, you get to take the brunt of all the divisions problems. When you make a whistleblower, they end up firing you anyways.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employee's, and they will take care of you. When an employee complains and you make appropriate actions to rectify the complaint, dont throw the employee to the wolves and hire the ex-boss's daughter to lead this employee. Tyngsboro mass, will not be good unless everyone is terminated and started fresh.

    Pros

    You a out of the shop and don't deal with the boss' to often.

    Cons

    Favoritism to the fullest! If your not one of them the job really sucks. It's garbage and it is hand picking. Very nasty, gross job and will never recommend this for anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Make things across the board and not some people get this and some get that-make it fair.
