    I have been working at Waste Pro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, community events and involvement, since of family, hard work, no problem with getting overtime, working on advancement to move up in company

    Cons

    The hours are long and sometimes it's hard to get time off for appointments. That's probably the worst thing everything else is just normal people being stupid

    Advice to Management

    Get a bonus program for helpers not just drivers

    I have been working at Waste Pro (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hands on work . There will always be a need. Job Security and supportive team. Im getting ready to get my cdl. I did not know I wanted to drive until working at Waste Pro. I did construction and it was slow and I know there is always trash so I thought why not. Never imagined getting a cdl. Pretty strange and awesome where life can go. Lots of blessings coming. My manager was the one that put tge idea in my mind. Cant wait to be behind thr wheel.

    Cons

    Can be hard work but who wants to sit behind a desk???not me!

    Advice to Management

    Keep training people to move into new roles.I am getting my CDL and can not wait to go from a helper to driver. It has been a goal and thanks to my Manager pushing and helping me it is getting ready to happen. My wife and I are so excited. Good things to come.

    I have been working at Waste Pro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Steady work Steady check of cheated overtime

    Cons

    They do not pay overtime properly at all. They pay you a day rate from about 100$ to 125$. They will coherse you to break the DOT hours of service and make you work 18-24 hours a day and come in the next day at 5:30 am which also breaks federal motor carrier safety laws too. Most of their drivers are scared to lose their jobs so they just do what they are told by Waste Pro management which are bully employees who have families crooks. Their doing right under the nose of FDOT code enforcement and the county everyday. Which also violates OSHA laws and labor standards, serious modern day slayery. Disgusting and shameful!😬

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees. Follow HOS Laws, Stop working drivers and helpers from 5:30 am- 1:30 am the next day. Your sick go to counseling. You are bad reflection on all the counties u contracts will and change things before FDOT and Federal Motor Carrier Safetey Regulation put fines up your you know what.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great pay, all around a good company to be a part of. I would recommend working here.

    Cons

    Hours are late and that can be hard if you have a family. Sometimes, poor management with not a lot of feedback as far as reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees their reviews! Listen to employees about coworkers not always doing what they should be.

    I worked at Waste Pro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job with benefits.

    Cons

    They have no regard for DOT laws. They pay you a day rate and expect you to work until you get done, no matter how long it takes. If you get done at a decent time they just add more to you. Then you have supervisors with a CDL who preaches " what ever it takes ", but will leave a route on the ground before he will ever get in a truck.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all the managers and supervisors and start over.....

    Pros

    This does not apply to this company

    Cons

    Management is horrible, nepotism is the waste pro way, no support of internal growth and anything outside of florida is literally garbage use as a last resort.

    Advice to Management

    They should all be fired and fresh blood that understands loyalty should be brought in. Stop consistently lying to your CEO

    Pros

    Benefits are good, large territories and acceptable quota to achieve each month.

    Cons

    corporate prices areas that they do not know the market. Too much paperwork and micromanagement for seasoned reps. Let your numbers show what you are doing and if you producing and it is working, do not change it.

    Advice to Management

    Pay hire wages to all areas of employees, starting with Maintenance, then drivers and division managers. Hire wages would lead to more qualified candidates and less turn over.
