    Pros

    good company for the most part, I've heard better company in other locations , uniforms, paid vacation, benefits are decent, decent pay

    Cons

    you live at your job, Its there way or the highway. Need More newer trucks, no initiative to make things better or happy teams, Not enough training for techs or drivers and not the correct tooling for computers in the trucks

    Advice to Management

    offer something for doing a good job, listen to suggestions, if you expect people to follow proper protocol you need to also

    I worked at Waste Industries USA full-time

    Pros

    3 weeks paid vacation, 401 k, paid holidays, medical and dental, and also consistent paycheck.

    Cons

    Mechanics don't fix the trucks properly. You constantly have to help drivers who can't get their routes up. During a reroute if your a hard worker then they make your route bigger while the one's who milk the clock, gets their routes shorter. Management shows favoritism. Even though you get 3 weeks vacation, you have to beg management for a day off due to their policy (only one driver can have the day off). They have cameras in the trucks that go off on any little bump or turn you do. Point blank, the company needs a lot of improvement!!!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees instead of always blowing them off

    Pros

    Good Pay, Easy work, Advancement

    Cons

    Childish Drama and false roomers,

    Advice to Management

    Know whats going on under your nose. People make a company great not numbers. Huge communication gap between mechanics and drivers. This will be the down fall of this company. Hopefully no one gets hurt seriously before this issue is resolved.

    I worked at Waste Industries USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Crews work very hard to service customers

    Cons

    Unethical & inconsistent HR practices, No Higher level management support, & employees forced to violate DOT laws.

    Advice to Management

    Give supervisory level positions support to succeed, assist them in fixing the unsafe trucks the drivers are expected to use everyday, stop forcing them to willingly violate DOT laws, do not lie to them about the "no work-home life balance" hours they will be working daily, & overall just pray for the good employees that DOT & Dept of Labor doesn't audit their files...unethical companies like this can't continue their practices forever...
