I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Republic Services

Interview

I was very excited to interview with this company, but my initial call with the recruiter left me feeling like she called me on accident. She read from a script and asked me 5 questions, and asked “is that it?” after each of my answers. The call lasted 7 minutes and I was shocked to receive a Teams invite the next morning for a next round interview (no text included in invite). After much debate, I figured this was a good indicator of company culture and bowed out of the interview process.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Republic Services in Jun 2022

Interview

They are defiantly slow to respond to you and will ghost you. They asked for my availability to talk on the phone and I gave it within the hour. They took two days to respond and assumed my availability had not changed. The call lasted maybe 5 minutes and asked when I was available to talk to a hiring manager. When I told them early in the following week they said they'd reach out with an update. I emailed the recruiter the following Wednesday asking about next steps and they said the hiring manager was out of office and they would reach out. Two weeks later they just send me an automated rejection email.

The worst process to go through. They make you wait, wait, wait and oh did I say wait. Just to make you wait some more. Find another place to work. If they can’t it right after the 3 interview then that’s a red flag.

Very easy and comfortable setting. They were curtius and clear about salary and decriprion of the job. They walked you through the next step in the process and wanted to know if they could improve on their interaction with me.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Republic Services (Fort Mill, SC) in Jan 2022

Interview

I had two interviews with GMs and a final interview with a director. The first GM was based out of Tucson and was not very personable at all- it's actually mind boggling that she's a people manager. She seemed to have no interest in getting to know me and my background and just stuck to a bizarre line of questioning. Very awkward interview The next GM was a lot more outgoing and it felt very conversational. My final interview with a director was the same way and it made me feel a lot better about the company. They genuinely seemed to like what they did and really sold me on the company. The recruiter said she would get back to me in February and I heard nothing. Ghosting a final round candidate is a pretty bad look for the company
