    I worked at Progressive Waste full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Dispatchers ,Drivers and Hoppers make the company.

    Cons

    I've seen Management come and go. This last group of Managers destroyed the company. They threaten the employees with their jobs. When the Senior Manager is going to fire someone he walk around playing his guitar and singing a song. When ever there's a problem with a driver the other manager will make that driver leave his cell phone on the desk and take him for a walk. If you tell management anything personal... it's discussed with everyone. I have been in the waste business at least 18 years and this is the first time I've ever experienced this. Management is concerned about their bonuses instead of the business. The Progressivewaste can be a beautiful place with the right managers. The ones that have love for the business and their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Dan Pop need to interact with his lower paid employees, so that he would know the things management is doing and allowing to happen. Look at the turn over.

    Former Employee - Dispatcher in Winnipeg, MB

    I worked at Progressive Waste full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Didn't witness any pros working here

    Cons

    Pay is very low for the amount of work expected from you. Schedule was all over the place and no one could answer scheduling questions. No Senior support whatsoever and hardly any training. No praise from management. Very stressful work environment. Expected to work holidays by yourself with no support.

    Advice to Management

    Stop creating such a hostile environment. Support employees and give praise when warranted. Give proper training and try to make yourself available to employees.
