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 have been working at Republic Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, especially the 401k match and vision and dental are better than a lot of companies.

    Cons

    It's still an "ole boys" club and a lot of nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    If you have employees who want to learn more, be more, and advance. Help them out instead of saying "we'll see", otherwise the employee will become work drones that have lost the passion.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary, medical benefits, 401K, PTO, and two weeks paid vacation from the moment you complete your 60 day probation.

    Cons

    In my opinion Republic Services is grossly understaffed. I have noticed a high rate of turn-around. Opportunity for advancement is almost non-existent. To say working for this company is stressful would be an understatement. Daily duties, call monitoring and productivity grading are mentally exhausting. Employment with this company will and does drain the life out of you.
