    I worked at Waste Management full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    there was a lot of overtime available

    Cons

    the incentive pay for doing the most dumps in a day and the supervisors and dispatchers controlled how much money you could make they would sometimes use the pay as a disciplinary tool

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

    Pros

    decent medical benefits, some nice people

    Cons

    Too many to mention. Just a strong WARNING to anyone thinking of applying. IF you like an environment that does not nurture a positive learning culture, punishes you for mistakes, has supervisors that are unprofessional in treatment of employees and in their communication, enjoy some bullying and too much more to mention, than this is the company you want to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to start hiring "Millennial" minded management that understands modern management method that successfully manage teams and can change the "embedded" negative internal culture that is resulting in such high turn and demoralizing work environment.
