    I worked at Deffenbaugh Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has great benefits. I learned a lot about OSHA and Dot regulations. I learned a lot about what requirements are needed to become a driver. Gained a lot of knowledge.

    Cons

    The drivers that I had to keep track of to make sure they were complying with regulations didn't care about following the rules.

    Advice to Management

    my advice would be to stay on top of the driver's logs and ver VCR reports to keep them qualified to drive so that they can you keep drivers

    I have been working at Deffenbaugh Industries (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Pay and the benifits are great. Good over time hours. I need 20 words filler words blah blah blah

    Cons

    Co workers lazy, always helping the next guy, managment is struggling to be in charge, managements book knows how to do it better than the men who do it

    Advice to Management

    Step up listen to the drivers. Punish those who slack off all day. Reward them guys who do their part. And know their getting tired and they feel punished for getting done to just be told to go do more.

    Pros

    Great people to work with from the original Deffenbaugh company. Abusive people to work with from Waste Management the new owners of Deffenbaugh

    Cons

    Company was bought and all corporate functions were moved. No longer a family oriented company

    Pros

    I loved everything about Deffenbaugh Industries, the people, the crazy work loads and we could laugh and have a good time.

    Cons

    Waste Management "YUK" totally under estimated the size of Deffenbaugh and continue to make major mistakes, it will never be the same and clearly our loyal customers will always be Deffenbaugh Customers.! For all you customers I would suggest looking into a new garbage carrier such as- Republic or Allied. Things are only going to get worse.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking Waste Management is the best because you cant fake the numbers and they just are not there. Let the employees do their job and start making you money again. Deffenbaugh didn't get to where it is because we didn't know GARBAGE!!

    Invest in your people and work life balance.
