      No Work/Life Balance

      May 10, 2021 - Operations Supervisor in Chula Vista, CA
      Recommend

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Republic is a large company and has a lot of resources for training and development.

      Cons

      For supervisors, the expectation is at least 5 - 10 hr days, even though you're paid for 4 hours. Most weeks you work 60 hrs. This doesn't make for the best work/life balance.

      Pros

      The way they want you to move up, and actively looks for opportunities to get you to practice for the position you want to develop to. Also, they way they took care of their employees when Covid hit was amazing

      Cons

      None really, just tough dealing with the general public sometimes

      Pros

      It’s a nice environment and you get to meet the majority of the people working for the company. Your name gets around and if you show your knowledge of different aspects it can really take you places.

      Cons

      Sometimes the days can feel long and you’ll be asked to do things for hours at a time.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good pay, good benefits, and it’s a company that really does stand behind its values

      Cons

      There are too many levels of customer service/sales/account management within the company, that seem to be purposefully structured to compete with each other instead of work together.
