Former Employee - Commercial Frontend Driver  in  Capitol Heights, MD
Former Employee - Commercial Frontend Driver in Capitol Heights, MD

I worked at Republic Services full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The salary, benefits, chance for equal growth, and knowledge of the refuse industry.

Cons

The complexity of the routes with no room for error (ex. truck breaking down) routes still have to be picked up with limited to no help.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Break down the routes to keep drivers within a safe operating level and reduce driver error.

    I have been working at Republic Services full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    salary benefits Most hourly employees and drivers are good people good friends

    Cons

    sales managers do not have experience to deal with customers or employees it all about sales quotas. If they loose some customers they raise the price on AAA plus customers Republics idea is that triple A customers will pay without looking at or thinking about it they will just pay..This is to make things look good to stock holders. Do not go to HR you will loose your job within a week didn't happen to me but to one of our sales Reps. reason for her dismissal was she made a thirty dollar mistake on a contract HA Ha Everyone of us has made bigger mistakes than that. I am not a member of sales I am just setting back and watching. This is not right. This was all overseen by Regional Manager. Sales manager is also partial to male sales people they get better pricing for potential new customers not given to female reps. No help given to female reps to help them reach their goals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying attention to your customer and employees your employees make the business not you we make or break a company admit mistakes and do something about them this could be a great company but they always blame someone or something else Bill Gates a major stock holder should pay attention to what is actually going on maybe its not worth what you think !
