    I worked at Deffenbaugh Industries as a contractor

    Pros

    Learned that there are many aspects to trash and the business of trash disposal.

    Cons

    Some customers were overcharged. When I asked about refunding them monies overpaid I was asked if the customer was aware. When I said no I was told to correct the billing and not say anything.

    Advice to Management

    Integrity is very important and should be practiced even when nobody is watching.

    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

    The people you work amongst are among the best down to earth people I have ever met.

    Cons

    Be careful getting into junior or middle management, The trends and loyalty of the customers with their contracts change on a yearly and bi yearly basis

    Advice to Management

    Learn to show some loyalty to your workers and go getters rather than cutting out the employees that have hung in their putting in their time, just to save a few dollars so you dont have to pay out on benefits and much deserved raises.
