Relief Driver (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – February 16, 2017
Since day 1 they have treated me with respect and provide with the tools to succeed. I get paid more to do less manual labor but at the same time I've been trained on more equipment that makes life easier in this business.
Great relationship between management and drivers
Benefits are a little expensive compare to what i had
Sales (Former Employee) – Wheeling, WV – February 15, 2017
No onboard training for new hires and no one gets promoted. Employees either resign or get terminated. Ridiculous amount of turnover. There is no work/life balance. They work drivers to the brink of hours of service violation. The employees stab each other in the back, and look for reasons to discipline and push people out the door, rather than coach and mentor. Negative energy and low morale are the norm. No policy, process or procedure in place for anything. Management shoots from the hip, and makes decisions based on bias, opinion, mood and feelings. Too much finger pointing and fixing blame. Everyone has an axe to grind and is beyond miserable. Technology is 1980's. Way too much paper. The trucks are a joke - they wait until a next month or quarter rolls around in order to fix anything - for budget reasons. No holidays - they work on Saturdays to make up for it. The pay and benefits are decent, and are the only reasons people stay. Everything else is a giant mess.
Start day at 5am. Work through lunch to get your route completed. Equipment routinely has breakdowns, thus making it difficult to complete the route. If route is not completed that day you must return the following day and finish it, then you can start the new route for that day. Now you will be behind on your route for the rest of the week. Company has a policy that if you call in sick more than 4 times in year then you receive a Disciplinary Write up
Started working at location in Lubbock (BFI) and it was great. Management was great and job was fun and relaxed. Transferred to Dallas where it was nothing by lying, tricking customers, and trying to get as much money out of customers no matter what the costs. I was let go because I am a Christian and I refused to go into a strip club (Baby Dolls) and sell to them. That sales manager was later fired, so it's probably a lot better place to work now.
Residential Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Winder, GA – February 13, 2017
Everyone was very helpful. A very nice and friendly work environment. Very flexible hours. A very good experience. I got work according to my schedule outside of work. Supervisor was very understanding and worked with me.
Its a great stepping stone for the moment untill the right job with the right pay comes along.
Sorter/Unloader (Current Employee) – Jacksinville, Fl – February 12, 2017
Work hard every day to keep your job,but try to find something that fits you and pays more for the type of work that you do. This job is not hard at all but constant. 3am until 2:30pm is the scheduled time to work daily.
Garbage Man (Former Employee) – St. Augustine, FL – February 10, 2017
I liked working for them, being a garbage man was good I loved doing it , we use to pick up about 1200 houses a day. Some days it use to b really hot some days it was really cold, but it was a great job
Truck Driver Class A (Current Employee) – Carnegie, PA – February 9, 2017
Stay away from this job , not worth the pay and the management is horrible. They don't care for your personal life and they will keep you out all day and force you to help with another route after doing your own. 800-1400 homes per day.
Decent Pay, but a lot of work and management was not great
Garbage Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Inver Grove Heights, MN – February 5, 2017
It was all about the customers before safety. But when you got injured or in an accident, then it was all about safety. Pay and benefits were pretty good. Management didn't care of dangers and tell you to get the stop anyway. They always changing stuff and expect too much.
To smart to stay employed there. (Former Employee) – East Sparta ohio – February 4, 2017
East Sparta landfill is a good place if you like Jr high behavior from employees and management. And lets not forget the back stabbing by the employees. Management will swear and degrade you without fear of any serious consequences.

Call Center Representative (Current Employee) – Fishers, IN – January 30, 2017
We help customers with any questions that they have. Calls range from sending a request to an operation department for our truck to go service someone to helping a customer understand charges on their bill. I have a deeper understanding of patience and adaption. From the director and manager to the supervisors, everyone is extremely helpful. The job requires a lot of understanding and patience, but fortunately, the center is great with answering all questions.
Positive work environment and room for advancement
