I have been working at Republic Services full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Close to home, I met a lot of good guys..

Cons

No respect for the work being done, favortism, lack of communication, pay, benefits etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get the right management, reward your employees not treat them like slaves!!! Why is it that Don Slager makes 3.6 million a year 14.1 million after stock options, payouts etc. Upon his death his family would receive 23 million dollars.!! Last year Republic made 591 million in profit but yet had told our division there would be no cookouts, no Christmas party because the company did not make a profit.. Oh and just a Fyi you know what we get for a Christmas bonus? Absolutely nothing a big goose egg. We work our butts off day in and day out to make Republic Services money without us Republic would be nothing. Some guys go to work stressed, depressed because of family situations, health etc.maybe Don Slaver should do an episode of undercover boss then he would feel and respect all the hard work that us as employees give to the company. I could ho on forever of giving advice, giving them ideas on how to grow as a company, but I ask myself why? What has this company done for us besides pay us for the work we are getting paid to do.

    I worked at Republic Services full-time (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.
