Former Employee - ICR - Commercial Representative - Call Center in Greenwood Village, CO

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

Pros

The only good thing was meeting some outstanding individuals.

Cons

Good old boy network. Too many cheaters in sales who passed the buck concerning the customer service end who got compensated well for their sales while those of us who did handle customers concerns were passed up for promotions. ICR Training shabby at best. They take advantage of long term customers monetarily, especially seniors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When it comes to promotions, look at the overall picture, not just sales. Do more to keep your long term customers, especially the elderly who pay the most because they have been with the company the longest. These customers have been loyal though out the years. Show some loyalty to them. Most are on fixed incomes. Care a little bit. It might make a big difference. Remember it costs more to gain a new customer than to keep a consistent long term customer. Have a heart!

    If you don't become a member of the boys club, you will never fit in as a female in the field.

    Pros

    Benefits were awesome. Some of the people I worked with were great. Always busy so time flew by.

    Cons

    Some things are not fair across the board. Managers have favorites and believe everything they hear. Rules seem to pop up out of nowhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to everyone before forming a decision or offer advise as to how to handle certain situations. Make it fair for all genders without repercussions or flak from peers.

    Pros

    you work among lot of professionals.

    Cons

    they stress safety alot ,but sometimes you can't help but wonder if they just say that to cover them selfs in case some thing should happen ? because no matter what issues a driver might have ,it seems that safety goes out the door !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    train your drivers correctly ,before sending them out in the public!
