    I have been working at Waste Management full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compensation for work is very good. Benefits package is great. Job security is very good because there is always something getting broken or a PM inspection to do.

    Cons

    Raises come in very small percentages so try to get what you want right off the bat because it will probably only increase by a few cents every year when you are eligible for a raise and get it. Overtime is expected and weekend work is usually mandatory. You often have to work holidays too but you get double time for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The good managers are doing a great job with what they can but their bosses are often the problem. Accountability for all levels of management would be something to improve on.

    I worked at Waste Management full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are decent but the negative work environment far outweighs the benefits.

    Cons

    The worst co. I have EVER worked for! No training and extremely high turnover & low morale. Negative work environment. No advancement opportunities, instead managers hire their "friends" without even posting open positions. Customers calling daily to cancel service. Required to upsell products that the customer doesn't need or want. Employees don't have the "tools" necessary to be successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the few decent managers who are still with Waste Management - - update your resume and move on! The managers are treated just as poorly as the employees and are extremely stressed out due to their inability to make any positive changes.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Disapproves of CEO
