Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees like people. Employees have problems too. Talk with them when you see a problem. Be mentors and not just bosses. The turnover rate is tremendous. Management needs to work closer with their employees and help in anyway possible to make working this difficult job more manageable.

Employees have input that may help the company. Our middle management needs help but their " I know everything" and "Im the boss, your the employee" attitudes will not help the company grow.
Hudson Republic recently took over Hernando co. They have numerous employees who have worked the area with the previous company. There are problems that these employees can help fix. The egos of the management is preventing the branch from correcting these problems. The management needs to learn how to utilize these resources.

    I worked at Republic Services full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Weekily paychecks and Benefits..... But thats it.

    Cons

    Where do I start? First of all, if management expects and receives top performance from us the real workers that drive this company to the heights where it's at...... Then we Expect the same from you Management!. Meaning, we expect RESPECT, RECOGNITION, AND VALUE!!!! Next, provide us with the proper tools to do OUR JOB (for example: working trucks!!!) How can you expect a driver to go out and pull a route daily without a truck? Seriously, all that training and meetings you guys have, and you cant solve this issue? Because this is an ongoing dillemma. Also promotions are nonexistant, unless ofcourse you play favorites. Again it comes down to poor management and unprofessionalism. Management does as it pleases, and pick and choose who they want to advance and Equal Opportunity is obsolete for the rest of us. Its simply just the run around and the "policy card" they pull out when they see it fit and to cover their butts.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
