I worked at Republic Services full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Upper management very friendly and approachable; open communication direct from the CEO with quarterly town hall meetings at corporate office; good promote from within plan; can easily transfer between departments after 1 year; health benefits offered diverse variety and build a plan option so you control costs and benefits.

Cons

While the company has a comparatively generous PTO plan (3 weeks of vacation in year 2), there is no flexibility to negotiate anything more or an option to take additional unpaid time off. Holidays are slight. Corporate office is crowded and those in cube farms can easily feel overlooked as valued employees. Also cubicles have short walls so there is nothing to block out distraction and is difficult to focus on job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer employees flexibility with PTO option to have additional time off unpaid (for instance, up to two weeks off unpaid with prior approval) to allow more work-life balance. Also please change cubicles to have higher walls. This may discourage employees from shouting across departments to fellow employees and aid in productivity.

    Pros

    Very nice people. Good work hours

    Cons

    very poor systems need to update for people to do the job in a fast manual

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to update systems and have more customer service reps to help the customer. Please get a better phone system, it shuts down about 3x a day and the on line auto pay has been having issues over the past 3 months and still not fixed

    I worked at Republic Services full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    None really. I did work with a fantastic group of people who shared in the misery of an abusive, disrespectful, and unethical Manager.

    Cons

    See above. Clueless management; even more clueless upper management.

    Zero training, no mentor.

    I was sexually harassed and verbally berated regularly and every bit of it is completely ignored.

    Worst experience of my career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up.
