    I have been working at WCA Waste full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The 401k matching is the best I have ever seen. The industry works year round regardless of weather or economics.

    Cons

    The employee turnover is rediculous. Management can't decide what they want to do. They are constantly changing so no one really knows what is going on. About the time a manager gets it, they are changing.

    Advice to Management

    Sit down and make long term goals. Stop making decisions for the right now. Invest in your business. Equipment, employees, etc.

    "WCA - Waste not!"

    Former Contractor - Financial Specialist in Houston, TX

    I worked at WCA Waste as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pros for working for WCA was that I was exposed to a new industry.

    Cons

    The culture of WCA was very restrictive with regards to their drivers which subsequently led to high turn over.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to management is to research the high turnover and to find ways to improve employee retention while also improving morale.

    I have been working at WCA Waste full-time

    Pros

    The desire to be a better company is there, even if not executed properly. Casual environment. Wonderful team and co-workers.

    Cons

    Employees are expected to do the work of 2 or 3 people. Little to no direction. Disorganized. Zero training; onboarding process non-existent. No unity across company. No benefits, No vacation, impossible to take time off.

    Advice to Management

    Increase staff - nothing is being done efficiently or being reviewed thoroughly when everyone is spread so thin to get everything done. Put STRICT processes in place so everyone is processing information the same.
