    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Waste Management full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The medical benefits are the only pro

    Cons

    Pay scale, opportunity for advancement, no transparency, no work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Drivers are not paid hourly or even by salary. There is some elusive formula that they used to calculate pay and they will not tell anyone what the formula is. No one can explain the formula that is used to calculate the employees pay. What you are doing is wrong and you need to make this formula transparent.

    Pros

    North Huntington branch good pays

    Cons

    very poor management no people skills what so ever!! workers just a employee number. only there for 89 days but couldn't find one employee that liked there job.I was told the day before getting in the union that I was not going to be a drive just a helper not what I was hired for. Was told by management go home let us know what you want to do on Monday. They also told me this on the day I told them my pap passed away. Family orienated -NOT. I had several job offer so it was a no brainer. Took my uniforms in on Friday before funeral and quit. By far worse job experience ever.Oh now making $4.00 more per hour driving a new truck not DOT regulated death trap.

    Advice to Management

    My advise is get some new management with people skills. Its not all about picking up the trash you need a pleasant working environment like what you claim in your promotional videos. That is why you always need employees. Poor management. This would be a good place for undercover boss.
