Featured Review

Former Employee - Dispatcher/Router

I worked at Waste Management full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I really enjoyed my time while working at Waste Management. The employees really care about going above and beyond for the customer, and it shows. And the supervisors/managers all work together so... that everything runs seamlessly. The insurance and benefits plans are phenomenal. I would definitely recommend applying to anyone that is thinking about it!

Cons

It can get repetitive occasionally, but so does every other job.

Advice to Management

None.

"Great Company"Apr 30, 2019

Current Employee - Project Manager

I have been working at SAM Companies full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

If you are career driven, focused and, take the initiative, the opportunities seem to be limitless. Since being at SAM, the last XX years of my XX-year career have been profound in regards to getting... the opportunities one has strived so long for.

Cons

Priorities. What company does not have them, however, sometimes those priorities can be misguided.
