    Negative environment. Discouraging questions but easy to answer they want to ensure you can handle working for a garbage company as the turn over rate is putting a huge amount of pressure and workload on the management teams that work the lower levels they have the highest pressure and workload. The driving interview was a cake walk nothing to worry about if you can drive a big truck and multi task you will pass, if you can`t don`t even bother trying....
