    I have been working at Republic Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The job Was close to Home and the drivers were authentic people. The coffee was good and free and I had a window

    Cons

    Upper management ran the company like the Wild West . They would fire people for no reason but they didn't like your haircut. The turnover was out of control. A revolving door. There were 9 ops managers in 4 years it's was a toxic work environment at best and working for someone who was just a aweful person to the core was unbearable. I would not recommend working at Republic Services for any amount of money.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip on your GM's They are out of control
    And if you are aware of their actions. Shame on you. You have lost a lot of talented people and will
    Continue to. You are in no way on the level of professionalism of other multi billion dollar companies you are bush league at best

    I worked at Republic Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cheap insurance. Safety. Processes are by the book. But... You will finally find out what you want to do with your life when you leave this place.

    Cons

    Backstabbing, undermining, a world of chaos but that's what they want locally to keep the meat-grinder going. You can never hold anyone accountable if the leadership keeps changing. Management turns over every 2 years because of this despite good intentions. Chaos is the norm here and almost everyone is related, yes blood related. Don't think, for a minute that you can change it...You can't. Call any of the people who have left Fall River (look them up on Linkedin.com) and ask them what they think before signing any offer letter, please...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of any leaders who have been there more than 10 years and start over. Don't worry about the union. Talk is cheap and drivers threaten union but will never, ever pull the trigger.
