The Runts of WM make all the difference

Operations Specialist (Current Employee)
Marshall, MN

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

ProsBenefits-AWESOME! right now that is the ONLY pro it has going!

ConsPile on the work. no OT allowed. No training or help. No raises either.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe employees, who haven't had a raise for over 2 yrs now are the ones keeping this company going, and not because of you but in spite of you. You are are so worried about getting your face in the news to make yourself look good you have let a great company go to hell. What about alittle common sense in that in order for an employee to succeed maybe you should train them in stead of piling more on them, giving no help, no allowance for overtime, oh wait but the drivers and mechanics can, then wonder why people keep quitting right and left. And seriously, what the hell is up with dividing upper management and regular employees who work in the same building? Do you honestly believe that you are so much better than the rest of that you should be able to make the "first floor" employees walk in from the back and they are not allowed up to the "second floor" unless they have Badge?... And maybe you should get a clue that Urban and Rural areas are different and so are the peoples way of life.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
