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

Pros

The pay is decent considering the job requirements. You're not micro managed

Cons

You are not valued as an employee, ideas and contributions to help make things run more efficiently are taken and put into place, but there is no recognition given to the person that provided those ideas. Revolving door, most people leave the company within less than 2 years of being there. As of late it's been a couple of months. A lot of the companies practices seems unethical. Example: Trying to raise customer's rates even though WM knows that they are in a rate restricted contract.

    I worked at Waste Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the people I worked were great.

    Cons

    The promises they make are worthless. They kept jerking me around on my hours. The management never takes the time to say 'good job'. I specifically heard my supervisor say 'everyone's replaceable.' They tell you to do A and write you up when you fail to think on your own to do B. I've seen a revolving door here with new employees since I started a year ago. If you wanna take up drinking on a daily basis, go ahead and work here. If not, stay away from the Nashville landfill 'Southern Services."

    Advice to Management

    Treat the people on the ground floor like they actually matter to the company and stop being so concerned with the bottom line. Oh and hire some management personnel that actually know how to treat and motivate their employees and maybe you'll hang on to some for more than 3mos.
