Republic is a load of garbage
driver (Former Employee), baker laFebruary 15, 2014
Cons: will definetly fire you for no reason
first off I interviewed during the holiday season, they waited a month to tell me I got the job but they were not ready for me yet had to wait another month to actually start. So then I am in orientation and I am told about the do's and don'ts of the driver and how they have zero tolerance for talking and texting while driving but while driving with – more... the trainer he starts looking and texting his wife. he is not checking tires like they told us too he is just doing things his way, and bragging about how he can make or break me to my supervisor. next thing I know I am called in and told I am not the "right" driver for them and now I am trying to get a job and they wont even confirm that I worked there. I have the stubs to prove that I did. This place was not even work the hassle, this has caused me many problem. Think twice before applying for a job with this company. – less

the inmates run the nut house
technician (Former Employee), Bridgeton, MoFebruary 13, 2014
Cons: long hours, poor training, favoritism, poorly managed
maintenance manager does not want to fix any issues. he does not listen to his supervisors about the issues. lots of favoritism to the people that are liked by the manager. training is horrible. rules only apply to certain people. shop is suppose to be ONE FLEET ran, but it is only ran that way been people are visiting. co-workers talk behind everybody's – more... back to make the next person look bad and the supervisors do the same to each other. I wish I could give something positive about my 6 years working for this company, but what I have said are the issues here is what got me fired. – less

Experience in this field
Welder (Former Employee), Pontiac, ILFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: that chance to educate myself
Cons: fired for any reason
My day began with time for work. I learned how to read blue prints, Use a Mig Welder, how to use the certain size tips, grinders, power tools, torch cutter. My supervisor was never around. I did not have any Co-workers. The hardest part of my job was not having supervisor was never there for any questions I had about the job. So I bought books to teach – more... me the rest. The most enjoyable part of my job was that I got the chance to educate myself in this field and did awesome. – less

If your a scale operator then its all down hill
Scale Operator (clerical, customer service) (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXFebruary 5, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: no breaks, 30 min lunch, work weekends, being called in and being forever looked at as the small fry with no brains
in my 2+ experience at this company as a scale operator/ gate attendant. Was great at first but then everyone else looks down upon you as the small fry. And it will remain that way. Advancement is not an pinion they will say you can but will not happen, management does not care about you, work balance is terrible they will call you in all the time no – more... matter if you have plans for your day off or not. – less

Beware!
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Pontiac, miJanuary 23, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: management, company guidelines, customer service for customer, assistance with any personal matters, the attendance policy, etc
If your looking for a place to earn income until you find something that you really desire this is the place to be. It is not a permanent company to work for. Unfortunately they don't value hard work they only value profit. The customers are always dissatisfied and when problems arise very few people do anything to resolve it. The management team in – more... customer service specifically only care about making themselves look great to obtain raises and promotions. Impossible guidlelines are set that management doesnt have to abide by but they than expect other employees to be perfect. When you have an issue with any of them they and seek out assistance that is the end of your job. So as I stated prior of your looking for something to tide you over until you insights school or get a real job this is the place. If your looking for a career I suggest go else where. – less

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.
