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

    Pros

    Republic is a large company that has a lot of room for growth, especially if willing to relocate.
    The leadership team recognizes there is room for improvement, and they are willing to move forward with changes.

    Cons

    Although Republic is a large company, they are still establishing some of the basic foundations. They are working hard on getting everyone working towards the same goals following the same processes. The company is so spread out across the US, that it can be hard to manage everyone staying on track.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to ask for field input/advice in order to reduce what corporate believes is/should be happening in the field vs what is actually happening in the field.

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

    Pros

    Pros The pay is fair for my area and it's only going up! Republic offer goodvacation packages.

    Cons

    CONS!! The trucks I've driven at my BU are wore slap out from every line of business... it's hard to plan a vacation when you have to put it off for Bu need twice a year

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that your drivers are trying hard to get the job done every day,and it's not easy with the equipment failure that just gets parts thrown at the problem until it sticks. Pay closer attention to your mechanics. For god sakes listen to your drivers that are in the the trucks 60 hrs a week.

    I worked at Republic Services (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Overall was a good place to work. For the most part the people are great to work with.

    Cons

    Better be willing to give the CEO a standing ovation when he walks into the room.

    Advice to Management

    Just goes to show you these pages can be manipulated. Slager is joke, with an ego the size of AZ. He treats the people below him like "trash" and your employment is only as secure as it relates to how much you suck up to this guy and stoke his ego.

    Pros

    Each day is very different.

    The constant drive to consolidate functions and eliminate field personnel without a viable plan that can be successfully implemented is, at times, giving the edge to the challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Please improve communication.
