    Pros

    This is a corporate company so there are set rules and regulations, you follow the rules and regulations and you're set. There are daily meetings which are the key times to bring up good bad. Constant training to move all individuals forward and expand areas of knowledge/skill. Great people to work with. Vast amount of oppertunities within the company nationwide!! including Puerto Rico

    Cons

    I was brought into a "REHAB" location, all new management, with that being said I work a lot of hours to get ahead to eventually get the trucks and crew to the company standards, I knew this coming in so I am not complaining rather exspressing my one and only con

    Advice to Management

    know that there are always ripples, we are human, but also listen to what your people tell you, especially the ones you never have issues with.

    Pros

    Feel like you are part of a team and a member of the Republic family.
    Great work/life balance.
    Fair compensation and great employee recognition!
    Love my job and the Company!

    Cons

    Let's face it - you are working with trash. While it is stinky and messing, we provide a much needed service, look for ways to preserve the planet, and it is a lucrative industry.

    Advice to Management

    Automate some of the manual processes. We are an environmental company that still requires employees to use paper processes.
