    I worked at Republic Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great benefits, tenured people are helpful

    Cons

    Long sales cycle. Run into sales contracts months out, competitive market. No manager support. Constant change. Sales supervisor has a negative attitude with no prior sales experience and doesn’t offer support, she tells you to figure things out on your own. Favoritism in the office is horrible. Management blocks their own people from advancing.

    Advice to Management

    If you say there’s room for growth, help your people advance. LB BU needs a sales supervisor with a positive attitude who is willing to help and support the team.

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

    Pros

    Pay is excellent and the benefits are the best in just about any industry, anywhere. Depending on the location, the support from management is well above par. Every day is entertaining, and no two days are ever the same.

    Cons

    Incredibly long hours which is good for hourly employees (if you have no family or other life) but not as good for salaried employees. To succeed in this company, you must fully immerse yourself in the industry to the point where "trash runs in your blood", and at that point, you may realize that well over 60 hours of every week are spent at work. The only reason that I could not recommend this company to a friend is the absurdly long work hours.

    Advice to Management

    Put more emphasis on Quality of Life incentives. Very few people care about company picnics or a keychain with the logo on it. Most people care about having a life that is not centered on the waste industry.
