    ProsProcessing Customers at the window. Work indoors and running a computer.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's nerve racking when the policies and processes change on a daily basis. An Accounting Supervisor does make a good Scalehouse Supervisor.

    A company with priorities that values it's customers, employees and the planet.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMany of the resources and points of contact are still out in the field rather than centralized at their headquarters.
    Management makes great efforts to hire the most knowledgeable and motivated candidates. It is a huge pro to be surrounded by co-workers that know what they are doing and care about their impact.
    Extensive benefits at a cost that you won't be able to touch at another company.
    The ability to be a part of something bigger/processing and disposal of our planets waste in an environmentally friendly way.

    ConsLike any company the size of Republic implementation of programs can be a little slower due to checks and balances. Fair trade off for ethical practices and job security.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to grow and adapt to ensure the company remains an industry leader.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I learned most of what I know at Republic Services.

    Environmental Technician (Former Employee)

    ProsThey give you on the job training and their safety incentive program was very rewarding.

    ConsA lot of the people working for Republic Services are still operating like it's the 70's.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo news was good news. However this wasn't very reassuring. Positive feedback, not just negative feedback, would've been appreciated.

    Never a boring day!

    Major Account Executive (Current Employee)

    Prosability to run your own show with your books of business with minimal mgmt if you have the experience. Not routine.

    ConsNo room for females to excel or move up in the company - "its a boys club". pays the bills, but if you are looking for more; try another industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at internal employees for advancement opportunities (both genders).

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