    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Waste Management in July 2016.

    Interview

    Never made it too an face to face interview, thank goodness I was offered a position with the municipal county in which I reside as a driver for Solid Waste Division.

    I was scheduled to have a phone interview with J @ Waste Management for 3:50pm. J called at 3:31 PM so I missed the call. She left a voice message, I listened to it and had to replay it several times because she spoke so fast I couldn't quite hear the call back number to reschedule a phone interview. I call the number and input my number and she immediately call back, she spoke as if she were annoyed or somehow upset, so I hurried and told her I would not be interested in the position any longer.

    Operations Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reno, NV
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Waste Management (Reno, NV) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I had to reach out to a recruiter on Linked In to get my resume looked at. Once I did, I was able to get a phone interview within 2 days. About a week later I got another call from a Senior Talent Advisor and she also went over a few details, preparation tips and scheduled my Face to Face interview with one of the hiring managers. The questions were very straight forward. Mostly behavioral and how I would respond in certain situations. Nothing was to hard, or caught me off guard. I was hoping for an interviewer that was a bit more personable, but he seemed like a very nice guy. Soft spoken and had a calm demeanor. Looking forward to the final answer next week. So far this has been a great experience.
