    Pros

    Great benefits, when I started you got 3 weeks vacation. Most weekends off. For the most part steady work because people quit in the winter.

    Cons

    There is not nor will ever be ac in the trucks. They have been saying for years they will be getting new trucks it's just not true. You will die of heat stroke before this happens. The trucks are absolute junk and they will get away with it for as long as people drive them. Use this job as a ditch all effort last resort. Be for warned the trucks are complete junk and people with 20 years in the company get the nice... trucks.

    Unfair practices in MICHIGAN, INDIANA and OHIO

    Advice to Management

    Racism in 2019 still exist at Waste Management in Michigan! The leadership let’s things happen that shouldn’t as well as does not care about anyone but her bonus! Sad to say it’s only in this area. Something must be done from the corporate perspective. Hope this helps any future candidates.
