Really depends on your manager and line of business....stay away from recycling center.

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

Pros

Great senior leadership and awesome pay. This company is really trying to transform the trash and recycling business. It would be nice to completely remove the days of drivers having to get out of truck (too many injuries & accidents). I also like the Life Critical Rules...break one of these and you are history. All of the life critical rules are a result of multiple employee and customer deaths over the years.

Cons

A little frustrating to see your employees come into work and leave 4 hours later, with full 8 hours pay or an option to start working OT (union contracts). Meanwhile, management is scheduled for a min. 10 hour day (when things are going well).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great company overall but work-life balance for management is non-existent. The bonus structure is purely team based...it would be nice to have a small percentage directly tied to manager's individual performance and that of his/her team.
