    Filled out application online, got an email 2 days later asking me to do the online interview, and now waiting for response. Video interview is so weird, imo. I feel like I messed up more for thinking too much about the video recording

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Waste Management in February 2020.

    Interview

    Terrible. On demand, recorded video interview where you could rerecord your answers if necessary. The problem is that there should have been a phone interview prior because the job description was so poor you were asked to answer question relating do the job but you only had the tasks and requirement bullet points to go off. In the end the job was not as described and I wasted at least three hours prepping and recording when it could have been avoided in a 15 minute call.

    Interview

    The interview process seemed great in the beginning, however once I sat down to answer questions I felt as though I was being berated. One of the two interviewers was extremely unfriendly and left a horrible taste in my mouth. I almost felt like I purposefully did horribly throughout in hopes that they wouldn't extend an offer to me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Waste Management (Houston, TX) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Three people would ask a series of questions, all were very focused on hardships in the workplace. They ONLY asked about conflict and resolution and the questions were very repetitive. I think they focused too heavily on conflict resolution and didn't bother asking about other aspects of my personality or other skills that would also be necessary in the workplace.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time where you experienced conflict in the workplace?   Answer Question
