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

Pros

The only good thing was meeting some outstanding individuals.

Cons

Good old boy network. Too many cheaters in sales who passed the buck concerning the customer service end who got compensated well for their sales while those of us who did handle customers concerns were passed up for promotions. ICR Training shabby at best. They take advantage of long term customers monetarily, especially seniors.

Advice to Management

When it comes to promotions, look at the overall picture, not just sales. Do more to keep your long term customers, especially the elderly who pay the most because they have been with the company the longest. These customers have been loyal though out the years. Show some loyalty to them. Most are on fixed incomes. Care a little bit. It might make a big difference. Remember it costs more to gain a new customer than to keep a consistent long term customer. Have a heart!

    Equipment! Local management was good but further up was not. No room for advancement. EQUIPMENT!!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people doing the work! It's not always about how fast the job can get done.

    Pros

    you work among lot of professionals.

    Cons

    they stress safety alot ,but sometimes you can't help but wonder if they just say that to cover them selfs in case some thing should happen ? because no matter what issues a driver might have ,it seems that safety goes out the door !

    Advice to Management

    train your drivers correctly ,before sending them out in the public!
