    I worked at Waste Connections full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    tend to be very fair with pay

    Cons

    it's a huge company however we are kinda on our own because it seems other offices keep to themselves.

    Advice to Management

    get out in the trucks on a weekly basis for a day of riding along.
