Not a favorable place to work

Poor management on all levels. Treat employees poorly and gouge customers with deceptive business practices. Managers worried about falsifying records to make themselves look good, placing employees in unsafe situations,

Tractor trailer driver (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INFebruary 26, 2015
Pros: employee barbecues for rewards
Cons: open to the weather temps
The work most of the time is fast paced. safety is important to this company and there are monthly videos and discussions about safety and compliance. Most of the co-workers are friendly and helpful. The hardest part of the job is the repetitive movements and routes. The most enjoyable part of the job is being rewarded with cookouts and catering throughout the year and the monthly celebrations of birthdays.

Residential & Liquid Operations Supervisor (Former Employee), Houston, TXFebruary 9, 2015
Great benefits, typical vacation offered, fair compensation. Management turnover seems to be fairly high at times, which creates a challenge when trying to understand the company's vision since there can be quick changes in leadership.

Very Busy Office
Accounts Payable Coordinator (Current Employee), Revere, MAFebruary 5, 2015
I begin my day at 8:00 am and end the day at 5:00 pm with an hour for lunch, since I am the only AP person in the Revere location, we have several divisions, I am very busy most of the time the day goes by very quickly. This is a divsion of the Corporate Office which is in Phoenix.

We are a very large office with most having offices rather than cubilces. Conversation with others is kept to a minimal since most are extremely busy,

Customer Service - Emailing, Pickups (Former Employee), San Jose, CAFebruary 1, 2015
Pros: feeling great about being at work
Cons: unclean bathrooms
A typical day at work would be logging on to the call center and taking many calls and getting connected to our customers and getting along with management and co-workers. The hardest part of my day is making sure all customers receive great customer service. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing through the phone that they are smiling.

Simple but hard work
Sorter (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLJanuary 28, 2015
Pros: 40 hr week
Cons: short breaks, working conditions
4 or 5 am is a typical day. Stand up picking trash off the conveyor belt for long periods of time with 2 15 min(Unpaid) and 1 30 min(paid) breaks in between. Very Fast paced and interesting although some workers are lazy and management doesn't seem to notice.

Great place to work
Key Account Manager (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAJanuary 15, 2015
Pros: altruistic contribution to the environment
Cons: management, health care, company directions
The company itself has great potential. We are the largest waste and recycling hauler in California. Typically I would deal with service issues (missed pickups, damages to property) or lower competitive bids. My job would be to maintain the business through my personable relationship and swift resolutions to customer concerns. Because of my ability to swiftly handle customer needs, I often found my self probing for additional business from satisfied customers. I learned to follow a "T" cold call approach with each account I would visit. This approach - knocking on the doors to the left, right and behind the client - allowed me to put up numbers that would rival most new business reps. My co-workers often praised me and my efforts. As a division were often in competitions with neighboring divisions and often won because of my numbers. The hardest part of the job was managing the size of the portfolio given. I was responsible for over 1,200 accounts. It was very difficult to make proactive visits while handling the pressing matters at hand. The most enjoyable part of the job, was enabling clients to become more eco friendly and showing them ways to divert waste from landfill making the world a better place.

Forklift operator (Former Employee), Hazelwood, MOJanuary 11, 2015
Pros: the benefits
Cons: having to work in under pressure.
A typical day at work is loading and unloading trucks. Putting up material. Keeping the place clean. So it can be a safe environment. What I learned is how to use forklifts. How to work in a fast paced environment. Management. They are nice caring for there employees. They the type of management that will get out there with you to show you how things should go. The co-workers are the same way. There a team they work as one you need help. They will come and help. The hardest part of the job is not having space to put material. It's a recycling plant. So some times you get over stocked and you have to make space. The most enjoyable part of the day is when management comes and tell you thank you for your hard work.
