Shake up the garbage industry. Really drive change - not just efficiencies to reduce cost and price to increase revenue.

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

    Pros

    Good pay co-workers were great people and immediate supervisor was a good man. Over all, good place to work. Thought I would retire from this job.

    Cons

    Co-workers were scared of upper management, they were afraid they would get fired at anytime. Told to hurry hurry and then told slow down and be safe, but don't go over certain hours. They tell you to make sure to stop for 30 min. lunch, but no one ever has time to.

    Advice to Management

    I was terminated because someone else backed in to my truck (backing accident!?). Another guy wrecked two trucks (totaled), and they sent him to retraining. Of course I'm 48 and the other guy was young. I think the HR Manager was afraid he would play the race card. Myself: Filed for bankruptcy

    I have been working at Republic Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A salary is above the average

    Cons

    A typical "New York" style management. Primitive, arrogant people treating employees like slaves. The problem of this company is multitude of managers that simply could not make it in New York. They blame everybody for they failure. This makes it a terrible place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Resign, there is no chance you ever succeed in anything.
