    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Street, MD

    I have been working at Waste Industries USA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    pay and benefits are ok. some good co workers. not much else positive to say about the street branch. regular pay raises every year

    Cons

    highest turnover of employees in the world-average 3 a month fired or quit. people treated like garbage and they make up excuses to get rid of good people and replace with lower paid employees. the branch manager is a tyrant who screams and yells at his employees all the time and his cronies are miserable to have to work for. its all about the numbers and bonuses, not about the employees or customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    maybe if they started treating their employees and customers good maybe they could actually keep customers and good people if they would stop firing them because it makes the numbers look better and increases their bonuses

    I have been working at Waste Industries USA full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They have a lot hours to work if u like work, if is not dont apply. My supervisor works as a normal employee, he does everything at the yard, office etc.. Then I saw my manager a Sunday at Walmart using a cap with the company logo.Never see that in my life, so when a manager does that is because he loves the company and, that's very important

    Cons

    They don't have Tractor Trailers at lease at my branch. The Waste Industries Sing outside the company doesn't have neon lighting

    Pros

    Good at promoting from within
    Pretty good benefits package with a nice 401k deal
    Some of the supervisors are really easy to work with and have your best interests at heart

    Cons

    Some of the executives try to run the company like other larger waste disposal companies
    Some of the people are vindictive and have sour attitudes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really elevate and praise those employees who work hard. Put them into leadership roles so that the company can be more reflective of them.

    I worked at Waste Industries USA

    Pros

    The only good thing was the pay and benefits.

    Cons

    The company is micro managed. At the Townsend yard people are treated like garbage. you also have no personal life. they make drivers work 60 to 70 hours a week. And we only use to work between 40 and 50, they expect us to do all this extra work but for no more money than what we were making. All in all I have been in the industry for over 10 years and I think this is a very poorly run company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people that are out on the road. At least make it seem that you care about peoples personal lives.

    Pros

    Great pay, and benefits, also opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    Bad management, promotions to unqualified people, disrespect, the management in the Summerville ,SC office is very unprofessional. I have worked in several location throughout the states and this office is by far the worst i have worked in. Waste Industries is a wonderful place to work, as long as you don't get stuck in the Summerville, SC shop. If the Corporate office would look into Management in this office, they would be shocked at what really goes on in here. Mistreatment of employees, and getting rid of the good employees with bogus reasons. It will all blow up one day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check into the Summerville,SC office!!! The management is very corrupt, they are letting go the good workers that have worked here for years, and hiring and keeping on slackers and anyone who questions the issues that are going on. If Corporate does not intervene soon, this shop is going to self destruct.

    I have been working at Waste Industries USA

    Pros

    Its very rewarding when you get to help others and meet members of your community. I often hear from them "You are so helpful." The members of my community also tell me Thank You, have a great day and often I hear God Bless You. It makes me smile and feel good about myself because of the way they respond to me and my actions toward them. Some of the people even bring me fresh food from their gardens and that makes me know they are thinking of me even when they aren't at the dump site. There are a few gentlemen that always offer me a bottle of water. Two sisters share goodies with me when they bake. I get treated so well from my community members it's too much to mention all they do or say to make me feel appreciated. On the down side you have to deal with the elements of Mother Nature. I don't get too much feedback about what is going on at Waste Industries. I wish they had a bulletion that informed us of whats going on and openings within the company. The pay could be better too. We have to pass a drug test and background check but only make Minimun wage.

    Cons

    It's a very Dirty Job. You have to deal with maggots, flys, roaches, mice etc...
    You are around metal containers and have to work in extreme heat, cold, rain and thunderstorms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a newsletter or talk to the employees and inform them of openings or promotions within the company. Upgrade the salary scale for outside workers. Offer some benefits for part time workers.
