    I have been working at Waste Management full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and smart company overall, management is pretty good. They treat you well overall and work with you if you work hard.

    Cons

    They work you hard and cap your pay. They only want to pay reps a certain amount but give you a lot of administration that takes up selling time. You are a one stop shop; customer service, billing, admin and help with some operational stuff. All of this plus you are expected to sell.
