I worked at Republic Services full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Broad resource availability from national-footprint company.
Multiple lines of business and career opportunities.

Cons

Locally, not committed to innovative waste management solutions.
Old-school company, without innovative internal technologies or processes.
"Sales" treated as a "step child" of "Operations"; not given equitable voice in company success.

Advice to Management

Branches need more specific attention to local needs.
Integrate the sales function into the overall success of the branch and company!

    Pros

    If you do a good job you are richly rewarded for it, constant praise for work well done. Great pay, great benefits. Managers are professional, experienced, and respectful to all of their employees, even employees that frankly are doing sub-par at best.

    Cons

    can't goof off all day at work, no texting on the job, you have to do your job right....basically slackers and whiners need not apply.

    Advice to Management

    delegate more responsibilities to employees to free up more time. If employees are not up to the task, try to find them something else they can do. If they can't do anything right-replace


  2. "pretty good company, but still have a few issues since transition with Allied"

    Pros

    open door policy, benefits,. work hours

    Cons

    no advancement, fraudulent open door policy, raises and salary

    Advice to Management

    .75 -1.00 raises are a good thing, this .20 raises are chicken feed, not going to keep top performers with that, even with the economy issues.
