    You are surrounded by an atmosphere of people who truly seem to care at all levels. They are family oriented and want to grow and promote from within.

    It is a tough job starting from the bottom, but can be very rewarding when you stick with it. For driven, hard working individuals only.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going after as much work as you can and continue to grow the company. just never forget about the guys that are out there breaking their backs for us everyday.

    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.

    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.
