I have been working at Republic Services full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Can be fun work, good co workers, good work schedules (for the most part)

Cons

Terrible direct manager. I have engaged direct manager and his manager multiple times with no success. A few bad apples makes this a difficult place to work at.

Advice to Management

Get rid of terrible lower management! Unless there is a management change up, I would not recommend this employer.

    I worked at Republic Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    working directly with clients internally and externally

    Cons

    The company lacks communication entirely, this is why a majority of customers leave as well, no one is on the same page. There is no room for growth unless you have a degree (knowledge base or experience doesn't count) or are friends or family of someone already in management They pay very poorly and the average increase yearly is around $.16 if you are even given one. You are micro-managed at all times and in all honesty the office atmosphere is that of a kindergarten class. Everyone blames each other for problems (including management) instead of working together to fix issues. If you enjoy gossip, this is definitely the place for you. And don't forget being talked down to by management as if you are a child being punished. Respect is not a factor here. All in all, the Salt Lake City office is summed up as a HUGE stress and has the ability to break a person down both physically and mentally.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees. Treat them with respect, they are not your children, they are your peers. Without a dedicated team you have nothing. A team drives a company or department to success, not your title and ego. Try putting yourself in your employees shoes, would like like to be degraded? I don't think so.
