    I worked at Republic Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a relaxed working environment.

    Cons

    Everyone received a flat 2% annual raise. Corporate wastes time and resources purchasing and implementing ridiculous programs instead of giving their office staff a working printer. (Such as buying a baseball hat that every member the office had to wear in case of a safety incident). Management hired and then protected a few key supervisors who brought down the whole team. A lot of my former coworkers actually cared about their jobs but were then taught not to.

    Advice to Management

    The necessary changes are obvious, republic bought out some great companies who had very satisfied employees, they modeling them a bit more.

    I worked at Republic Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Weekily paychecks and Benefits..... But thats it.

    Cons

    Where do I start? First of all, if management expects and receives top performance from us the real workers that drive this company to the heights where it's at...... Then we Expect the same from you Management!. Meaning, we expect RESPECT, RECOGNITION, AND VALUE!!!! Next, provide us with the proper tools to do OUR JOB (for example: working trucks!!!) How can you expect a driver to go out and pull a route daily without a truck? Seriously, all that training and meetings you guys have, and you cant solve this issue? Because this is an ongoing dillemma. Also promotions are nonexistant, unless ofcourse you play favorites. Again it comes down to poor management and unprofessionalism. Management does as it pleases, and pick and choose who they want to advance and Equal Opportunity is obsolete for the rest of us. Its simply just the run around and the "policy card" they pull out when they see it fit and to cover their butts.....

    Advice to Management

    They wont listen anyways.... Been there/ Done that! Waste of my time.
