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

Pros

Paid weekly, good money in general. Base plus commission. Huge company that is well known and respected. Management is fair and doesn't play favorites which is refreshing.

Cons

They have cut our commission pay once and then changed the terms of how we meet our goals once so now it's hard to max out on commission even though the job is the same. Also only 10 days of vacation first year.

Advice to Management

Share the wealth. This is a billion dollar company, stop taking money out of the employees pockets while the upper management gets huge bonuses.

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

    Pros

    Good paying job. Great group of employees. Great medical and dental insurance. Paid weekly.

    Cons

    Management is to concerned with numbers & not about the safety no matter how much they preach safety. Managers say one thing then do another.

    Advice to Management

    Worry more about the quality of work and not the quantity of work, You can only do so much when dealing with traffic , construction, etc...

    More concern could be shown for the day to day needs of employees.
