  1. Supervisors and drivers asked to work 60 plus hour work weeks. Trucks are old and in bad shape. Stay away

    I have been working at Republic Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paid weekly and benefits are median

    Cons

    Very unorganized from top to bottom. Everyone works such long hours it creates a very cut-throat environment. Supervisor skill sets are very subpar and they are over worked, rarely completing any issues brought to them by drivers or other employees. Driver pay checks are almost always incorrect, with hours and tonnage left off checks. Upper management seems to vanish when there is turmoil due to relentless broke down trucks and discouraged drivers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to clean house at this location. It was an Allied Waster location and bought out my Republic Services. Same management staff remained with same old mindset and ways. Top three managers came from a Uniform Company and hired their buddies to come over. Definitely a good ole boy environment here.

    Pros

    Laid out the red carpet! Promise the world with onboarding luncheons and keys to the "magic kingdom. All a setup!

    Cons

    Good ol' boy club where the executive team covers their butt and loves the friends police. God forbid you ask too many questions or have an original thought!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look in the mirror and ask if you feel good about the hours and effort people put in? Pay is below standards, culture is toxic and advancement is awarded to the quietest wheel!

    Pros

    Good office atmosphere and people. Pay is decent with great benefits.

    Cons

    Archaic systems. No compete. Training is ridiculous. Clause in employment contract states that you pay back everything you earn in the first 6 months if you quit within a specified time, be very wary of what you sign.

    Invest in the facilities. Most places are over 30 years and barely standing.

    Pros

    Very good people to work with. Strong team Dynamic

    Cons

    Middle Management is a joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shrink down and remove everything between BU and corporate....there is no need to have three layers of strictly managers in between.

    Pros

    Company is focused on the right things - customers and it's employees. Exciting time to be here.

    Cons

    Industry culture still needs to evolve...some pockets across the country where the leadership style is outdated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course and hold leaders accountable for how they get their results, not just the numbers.

    Pros

    Great Management Teams who listen to their employees and their customers needs. They make sure you have all the up-to-date tools to make sure you are successful. Great Benifits and promotes within.

    Cons

    Some times promotions are not given because they do not want to have to replace you at your position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote deserving employees even if they are going to be hard to replace or the timing is not great for budget reasons. These employees are the ones you do not want to lose and also are the employees that will recruit and bring in other great workers.
