    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Republic Services in February 2018.

    Interview

    Begins with a phone screen, then goes to a 45 minute behavioral phone interview with a recruiter. After that, I was invited to interview at my local Republic branch and to visit them at the career fair for my university. The final interview day was supposed to last 1.5 hours but ran over to lasting over 2 hours. Behavioral-based questions were asked by the GM and HR manager for my city's operations. The questions were pretty straight-forward and It was an easy process for me because of my extensive research into the company and industry.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Republic Services (New York, NY) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Initial interview with the recruiter who was well-informed and articulate about the role. Then a follow-up phone call with the hiring manager, followed by a half-day onsite interview with about 6 people. Interview questions focused mostly on past experience with occasional behavior-based type of question. The company seems rather laid back, but there did appear to be a real lack of any appreciable diversity of thought, race, ideas. The cookie cutter prototypical individual was a middle age white male with many years of trash business experience. Seems like a rather status quo environment where individuals with varied experiences and expectations are perceived as a threat to the balance. It's the trash business, not rocket science.
