I have been working at Wastequip full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Love working in the industry, and with our customers and follow employees. Pay/benefits above average for most jobs compared to competitors, and other similar sized companies. Freedom of ideas is encouraged.

Cons

The biggest challenge has been long-term employee culture poison (reluctance to change), and multiple private equity ownership about every few years (change in management philosophy).

Advice to Management

Initiate a reward program for exceptional and beyond-the-call of duty work efforts by all employees. Also wish that there were a way to keep current ownership in place so we could really see what Wastequip could accomplish in the industry with longer term ownership.

    Pros

    Upper management provides great experiences outside of work (Tickets to sporting events, Christmas celebrations, ect.). Wastequip follows Lean 6 Sigma practices that has been responsible for large cost savings efforts along with bringing safer work environments.

    Cons

    Many of the manufacturing sites are not in the best cities/locations.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are great. Insurance, earned vacation time off, etc. were fantastic. If you're a "yes man" you will flourish and momentarily you will be praised for a job well done.

    Cons

    There are plenty of career opportunities if you want to add to your resume but do not expect to get paid for them. You will be expected to take on positions in which you will be reprimanded for and you will receive absolutely no compensation. While you can earn vacation time good luck taking it. If you're actually lucky enough to take a vacation turn your phone off so that you might be able to enjoy it. Policies and procedures change on a weekly basis. Just when you think you have the answer they change the question and then reprimand you for not answering it correctly. If you have any new innovative ideas, suggestions or questions be sure to keep them to yourself. If you decide that want to stay employed but find that you have more experience or are more intelligent than upper management be sure to dumb it down or you'll be searching for new employment soon. Safety is certainly an issue. The branches have no control over the condition of their equipment. Do not expect problems to be corrected until there is a major issue, and yes, that goes for everything. If you enjoy being treated like a person do not expect to receive it here. The cons listed here are based on my own experience and I'm sure they will not apply to everyone. You are, of course, free to come to your own conclusions and form your own opinions. If you decide this is the place for you make sure you keep your resume on hand, up to date and good luck.

    Advice to Management

    Those under you, the ones that enable you to have that over inflated salary and to take your multiple vacations, are human. They have family, pay bills, have a home life, they actually exist. They are not serfs. They are smart. They have wants, needs and opinions. They do not disappear when you walk out the door or hang up the phone. They are the backbone of your company. They work hard to meet your goals. If you want continued growth I would suggest that you create policies and abide by them across the board, create realistic goals and provide the support, tools and the man power to achieve those goals. While you're at it you might want to work on your emotional intelligence. I understand that might be asking a lot. You might want to start small. I think if you developed some empathy or even a little bit of basic human decency that would be a good start.
