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

    Pros

    Fellow Employees, good benefits if you can afford the with the Lay-down days!

    Cons

    Waste Management hires you and says that you will be guaranteed to work at the least 45-50 hours a week and most likely more than that. Once they get you in, they start telling you work is slow and give you lay-down days, which means you don't come to work and you don't get paid! They do this to many employees and are giving them at least two days off a week UNPAID, leaving families unable to pay their mortgages and bills! You can't even work somewhere else because they tell you that if they need you last minute at 3:30am then you must come in by 5am, so one is waiting and praying they get called in so they can be able to put food on the table or pay their mortgage because they can't plan to work anywhere else. This company is a DISGRACE, and does not care about their employees! If work is slow and you are a full time employee, they should find something for you to do, not tell you not to come to work and not pay you! This is a Fortune 500 company and they treat their employees like garbage and don't care how their employees will survive and support their families, they just care about profits! Don't leave a good job for Waste Management because you and your family will end up on the streets! I can't believe a giant corporation like Waste Management treats their employees like this and does not care about the lives of the families and children they are affecting!! Business can't be booming everyday and if every employer decided to do this to their employees, half of the states population would be out of work! Disgrace! Disgrace! Disgrace!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with employees about the lack of work so you do not continue to destroy families and leave employees facing foreclosure and being unable to support their families!! Ask any Waste Management Employee, this is the truth and this is what they are doing to NJ Families!! DISGRACE!!

    I have been working at Waste Management full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    No pros other than good co workers that are all new as well due to a high turnover

    Cons

    Management lacks communication skills. The rules are extensive and easily broken resulting in corrective action. They hire and fire so much there should be turnstyles at their entrances. A lack of compassion and overbearing managers make it difficult to want to come to work. Read your rule book thoroughly . Management will expect you to work faster to get routes completed because they cannot figure out how to even out routes. Facility lacks in cleanliness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quite possibly the worst company I have ever worked for.
