    I worked at Waste Management full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay was decent as was hours. Gave you the training you needed to get the job done. Tried to give good customer service for what they were charging for but this did not always happen.

    Cons

    Raises were on hold. Always doing a reconstruction in the sales area. Think that because they have been around for a long time they should be able to give customers a higher rate than their competitor, not realistic with their sales goals.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more realistic with pricing due to the economy! Need to value the customers they have that give more than 100%!
