    I worked at Waste Management full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was alright. Starting out for this positions - Operations Specialist - the base pay is 18.50 an hour / but you can get between that and 25 depending on experience.

    Cons

    They always want you to work extra hours even more than you can at times, and the hourly employees do the same work as the salary employees / a lot of politics

    Advice to Management

    Less work environment politics and more innovative promotion techniques
