    Pros

    Home Office allowed a large degree of autonomy when managing the facility and provided the necessary support from their team.

    Cons

    Financial goals, budgets, forecasts were met and exceeded. Moral and spirit amongst the team was increasingly positive and upbeat. Unfortunately, the allegiance of HO is not with their team or its successes, rather with the word of the contracts author- tough game to play.

    Advice to Management

    Step back and recognize real accomplishments from real people. Own the mistake of what was originally agreed, stand tall and support the group responsible for the obvious successes and demand an amicable partnership with the "bear".

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Casella Waste Systems (Philadelphia, PA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Two interviewers that generally alternated questions. It was a very weird/awkward interview as if they had it all scripted from an "how to interview" book. It came off as very amateurish amd I was completely turned off by the interview from the company and was partially insulted. Lots of novice questions meant for a mid level manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Who would you eat dinner with dead or alive?
      Which superhero would you be if you could be anyone and why?
      What would my mother and father tell them about me?
      How many basketballs are in a given city?
