I have been working at Waste Management full-time (More than a year)

Pros

pretty solid earnings potential if you are good at sales. You don't have to take your work home with you.

Cons

zero freedom, seemingly endless calls throughout the day. Sales goals can be quite lofty and unattainable.

    I worked at Waste Management full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most co-workers are great to work with. Benefits package is nice.

    Cons

    Upper Management only knows one business plan if you can't make your numbers cut the number of employees. I made it through many work reductions each year only have more work and higher goals to reach. This past August 2012 it was was my turn to be cut ater ten years of dedication.

    Advice to Management

    You need to change your business plan. The reason you are losing so many customers is not because of your sales force or operations. You need to stop all the increase fees that you are charging your customers after they sign a contract. Remember it is suppose to be a beneficial for both sides of a contract. NO company or person wants to work or stay with another company that nickles and dimes for years.

    I worked at Waste Management full-time

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits, reward programs, great customers.

    Cons

    Treats employees very badly, with a 'guilty until proven innocent' attitude. Employees are micro managed with cameras, gps, computer systems, etc. Stops for bathrooms must be explained. If an accident occurs, the driver is always at fault, even if the police report states there was no fault on the driver, and you will be fired.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees with respect, instead of like common criminals.
