    Pros

    Opportunity to work with some very professional, dedicated people who are doing a great job despite difficult circumstances.

    Cons

    Uncaring, unresponsive, disconnected leadership that seems more interested in expanding the executive team fraternity than actually running the company.
     Majority of the executive leadership (most of which do not live in the Tampa Bay area) are being seen less and less in the office and they are virtually non-existent in any form (conf calls, visits, emails, etc) out in the field. One has to wonder if they are so satisfied with the job they are doing that they have just decided to hit the auto-pilot button and spend their time on extracurricular activities and endeavors. The company seems to be just drifting along and no one wants to take command, grab the wheel and steer the ship.
     The current management style (I dare not use the word "leadership") seems to be to find people who who will fall in line and will question or challenge nothing and will adhere strictly to a plethora of rules, regulations, and metrics that can be instituted at various levels.

    Advice to Management

    What can I say that hasn't been said in many posts before? SHOW your people you are behind them yet leading them at the same time. On the very rare occasions we do hear from the leadership team, do not repeat the same tired phrase of how much we are appreciated.

    Pros

    No pros, a few years ago it was well worth it. Now, they cut back on the money and the people in charge are all terrible people. Avoid valet waste at all costs.

    Cons

    They cut back, drastically on the money one used to make working for this company. Now you work your butt off for peanuts and peanut butter. And the management hires their friends and family to do the job. There is no fairness here. I've been working for this company longer than the managers in charge of the properties have been in charge and it's just crazy how their operating this business now. Suck a complete waste of time and energy this place is.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and fire appropriately take time on your jiggering processing don't let people who want to look out only for them selves work for you.

    Pros

    Valet Waste is a great place to work. We are growing everyday and my co-workers are very pleasant and fun to be around. Very low stress level do to the fact that we all help each other out. Our upper management is very in touch with all of us and are always there to help.

    Cons

    Hard to find any cons. Pay scales could be a little higher but that is true with any company now a days.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on. Thanks

    Pros

    Work by yourself, don't see management for weeks at a time.

    Cons

    They lie about the pay. Went through 6 Managers in a year. They may give you a contract on how much they will pay you, but they will breach it without a care in the world. They don't care about the valet's who pick up the trash. They use and abuse them without benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Revise the company completely. The way you run this company, it can not be sustained for long.

    Pros

    Work mostly unsupervised and at your own pace within reason.

    Cons

    Unreliable co-wokers who consistently call out leaving you to pick up their routes.

    Pros

    Company Truck, Cell phone, office supplies like printer, scanner. Gas card, maintenance card and company credit card. 22% off your ATT bill

    Cons

    Very stressful as you work with part time employees who quick 10 min before work and you are expected to pick up the slack regardless of how late you are out (I've been out until 5am at times) then expected to wake up early to go and do your morning duties. This job is definitely not a 9-5 time, its an open to open job.

    You are constantly being called, emailed and texted by your workers about 'excuses' as to why the cant work, your boss wanting you to drop everything to give an explanation as to why your workers worked and extra 30 min on our busiest day and clients as to why one door was missed and throwing a fit.

    Advice to Management

    Giving more support then the constant, hire hire hire speech. To have the sense of urgency to hire more managers so relieve stress the same way they put that urgency on us to hire more workers.

    Pros

    I worked for Valet Waste last year and I was on Glassdoor checking out some other companies when I looked up Valet Waste. When I was there the company treated me great. The teams worked well with each other and the atmosphere was great. I left for personal reasons but I really enjoyed working there. I see some Cons about the Tampa traffic and let me tell you it's nothing compared to the traffic I face now in downtown Miami. I miss my time at Valet Waste. Good company and good people.

    Cons

    Not a lot of cons. Raises came a little slow and there was some restructuring that cause some fast adjustments but that's about it.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep getting better.

    Pros

    Valet Waste was one of the best gigs I ever had. I was with the company for about three years before I was presented another opportunity and higher pay. I picked up and moved to the west coast to work for a home construction firm and it was nothing like Valet Waste. I miss the support and team work that I experienced at Valet Waste had. I never once woke up and didn't want to go to work. The CEO and his management team did a great job of team building. I hope to find that atmosphere again.

    Cons

    Really not many cons to talk about. It's in the heart of downtown Tampa and traffic is a bit much but over all very little to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive team building
