    Internal Auditor Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Waste Industries USA (Raleigh, NC) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I was hired from within the company, but the whole process took about 2 weeks from submission of resume to the interview to the offer. Overall, a pretty easy process. I interviewed with the person who would be my direct supervisor and also his supervisor. After I interviewed with his supervisor it took a couple more days, but I was offered the job.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Waste Industries USA (Raleigh, NC) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Waste of time, they knew who they wanted to hire. I knew it was a sham when I made it to the final interview and they didn't take my list of references.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Waste Industries USA.

    Interview

    Pretty straightforward, there was nothing particularly difficult. The direct supervisor had a lot going on during the interview process so the timing took a little longer to meet face to face. I met with a panel on the second interview and that went well overall.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Waste Industries USA (New Castle, DE) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview is rather impersonal. Standard questions that you would hear at any other interview. Whole process is 30 minutes or so. I think that is the easiest part of the whole company

    Waste Industries Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fayetteville, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Waste Industries USA (Fayetteville, NC) in September 2012.

    Interview

    They call you on the phone and ask to schedule an interview. You come in and they basically explain what the job to you. They say it stinks, and you see nasty things. They go over what if you have ever had accidents and if you have they ask you how you could have avoided it. They even ask if you have hobbies. If they like you they will call ask you to come back where they will tell you how much hou will be paid. Most rookies start at 13.25.

    After this they will hire you. There will be a couple days where you will watch videos on safety and company policies. Then you will ride along and get training from drivers for a bit. Its until they think you are ready. Then the lead driver will do your final test drive.

    I have heard supervisors say they have not been interested in a canidate because they didn't like the way they spoke or talked. They have even said the person had skills but they just didnt like them.

    Purchasing Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Waste Industries USA (Raleigh, NC) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview that I felt went well. Both hiring managers were forthcoming about the job and wanted me to clearly understand the position before we proceeded with the interview process. I asked them if I could take a night to think the job over and they gracefully accepted. I emailed them the next morning to setup a time for a formal interview and never heard back. I called the following day and left a message and still nothing, not even a "sorry we've decided to go with a different candidate". If you can't even get an answer as a non-employee I wonder what kind of an answers you would get as an employee.
