Bailer operator/rolloff /forklift / sweeper driver (Current Employee) – milpitas ca – January 14, 2014
Typical days at work,every is mostly the same. Management are fair.There isnt much to learn after learning the task. Co-workers are usually team players. Hard part of the job,is when the equipment breaks down. Enjoyable part of the job,is when everything runs good.
From the moment I walked into the building all of the managers were rude, during training they kept having these meetings with our training class and these people never had a positive thing to say and the worse part is I was hired in thoughts that I would be making $16 an hour to only be making $14 and no one could tell us when it would increase
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Pennsylvania – May 17, 2017
working second shift you have no life. overtime is the only thing that makes this job worth it. but if you worked 40 hours a week you wouldn't make squat. job security absolutely no one else wants to work on trash trucks. as for advancement good luck getting a promotion or a raise. terrible management they don't care about your hard work or your credentials you're just a body to fill a spot. very few mechanics that work here know how to fix trucks properly. constant come backs and all the work is put on second shift.

Enjoyed this job and raises which came with it. Management communicated with employees well. Had a chance to be involved in suggestions for better efficiency gains for the company to be more profitable. Physically challenging and the hours worked daily were long.
Pay and ability to move up
Long hour days of 14 hours or more took a toll on family life

Truck Driver (Current Employee) – Pontiac, MI – May 14, 2017
Good place of employment. I've worked here for 17years and it has had it's up and down, but overall it's been a good experience. Unfortunately the company is downsizing which will result in me having to find employment elsewhere.
thrower/driver (Former Employee) – Hudson, FL – May 13, 2017
The pay while I was there was per day, no hourly. As long as you got your route done, emptied truck at landfill, and fueled and maintained truck each day you went home as soon as this was all accomplished. Left plenty of time for home or a 2nd job at the end of each day there. Had some incentives to stay late and help finish another route. Had some issues with the new management when they took over, but have heard that most of them are gone now. Would go back if still lived in area.
If work hard and accuratey can be done early everyday, good pay
Laborer (Former Employee) – Robstown, TX – May 12, 2017
Don't expect to move up ever. the work environment and co-workers are very good to get along with but as for management its nothing but a bunch of back stabbers and people that don't know what they are doing. Unprofessional and lack of leadership
LAck of communication and adjustmenst to varied markets
Account Manager/Sales (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – May 11, 2017
The most difficult part of this job remains that account managers are not compensated for the work that they do but, rather, are penalized for accounts that they might lose, no matter what the reason. It is not a fair compensation as reps are charged with losses beyond their control, such as business closings and bad debt. This results in a direct loss of income to the rep. Established loss goal are not realistic to the revenue at risk based on account value. As an example, a loss goal may be $800 per month yet the rep loses an account with revenue of $5000 per month due to a business closing, resulting in no commission for the work that was done as far as retained and or re-signed business.
Welder, Container Shop (Former Employee) – Inver Grove Heights, MN – May 8, 2017
They had a very good benefits package. Being such a large company, corporate was so massive you would see changes to your daily routine created by somebody that had no idea of you job and what it entailed. It was a very dirty job. If you just want to be a drone, then more power to you.
