    I have been working at Waste Management full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a full time job!!

    Cons

    They do offer full time positions what they fail to mention is the hours are almost double what is considered full time where I work ALL employees work about 76 hours a week reguardless what route you have, I can see why so many employees have relationship problems because of the hours required to work ( Mangers do not work as many hours they work their 40!) So many employees are either separted or going through or are divorced becuase of the hours WM takes from your family.

    They also hold safety meetings before each shift which at first I thought was great many times you feel as though it is to express that "We are watching your every move out there" and " You are all not meeting the quotas" meaning you are not working hard enough or fast enough!!
    and should these meeting put you behind becuase they run long that is your problem to make up the time somehow and their trucks break down on a contstant basis, and you are also required to still figure out to make up your route should this happen, If you cant a superviosr will show up asking what the problem was, and why didnt you get the route done...
    If you wonder how donkeys feel then this is the place for you!! Becuase the managers will works your ASS off!! and then ride your ASS about everything!!

    We were told no raises for 2012 but yet some employees who had enough and were threating to leave were all of a sudden given raises, Some bragged about it which I guess goes along with the saying " sweaky wheels get oiled first"
    If you question authority here you will fade into the dust, meaning if you get a write up or challenge a manager to many times they will find reasons to write you up enough times that you will get terminated. We have seen too many people just be gone one day.
    The minute your hired and expect that your blessed to have a job be careful this job could be HELL for you.

    I worked at Waste Management full-time (more than an 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!!
