I have been working at Republic Services full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

A salary is above the average

Cons

A typical "New York" style management. Primitive, arrogant people treating employees like slaves. The problem of this company is multitude of managers that simply could not make it in New York. They blame everybody for they failure. This makes it a terrible place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Resign, there is no chance you ever succeed in anything.

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

    Pros

    Good pay co-workers were great people and immediate supervisor was a good man. Over all, good place to work. Thought I would retire from this job.

    Cons

    Co-workers were scared of upper management, they were afraid they would get fired at anytime. Told to hurry hurry and then told slow down and be safe, but don't go over certain hours. They tell you to make sure to stop for 30 min. lunch, but no one ever has time to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was terminated because someone else backed in to my truck (backing accident!?). Another guy wrecked two trucks (totaled), and they sent him to retraining. Of course I'm 48 and the other guy was young. I think the HR Manager was afraid he would play the race card. Myself: Filed for bankruptcy

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, 401k w/ percentage company match

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities, inefficient procedures, little inside support for outside reps

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure sales initiatives to focus on growth and true retention efforts with customer. Time wasted on collections, price increases,handling operational calls are better spent increasing revenue. Seems company has reduced headcount in these areas and expect sales people to cover. Little or no advancement opportunity. Rediculous internal paperwork constraints . Annual commission plan changes blatanly reflect company intent to reduce compensation, and increase workload. Worklife/ homelife balance is terrible.
