    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.
