A good place to work
Diesel Mechanic (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OKJune 30, 2014
Pros: ???
Cons: long hours, poor supervision
The burden of the trucks are dependent on the swing shift. All drivers Vehicle Condition Reports (VCR's) must be cleared prior to leaving. Repairs on a nightly basis include, hydraulics, brakes, CNG issues, Diesel issues, and a multitude of other repairs that must be completed prior to end of shift. Normal working hours are 3:00pm -11:30pm. working – more... hours on a normal basis 2:30pm-2:00am. I have learned a lot in the operation of the hydraulic system of trash trucks. I have a high knowledge of hydraulics, so this was not too hard. Management has a lot to be desired. My co-workers are okay.

Steady work, No advancement opportunities!
Frontload- Automated (Former Employee), Omaha NEMarch 4, 2014
Pros: good pay, decent equipment
Cons: poor management, no advancement
I worked for this company for about 4 years. In my time there I had good job security. The work/life balance was good doing front load, but the automated routes, lets just say the hours were show up and its dark, leave after its dark, and usually they wouldn't hire yard waste drivers, so when you were done with your trash route, you had to go back and – more... finish the yard waste on your route.
Another aspect that seems odd is this company has a policy of not rehiring former employees, which seems odd as they hire inexperienced drivers as opposed to experienced. – less

this place SUCKS!!!
MECHANIC, TRUCK DRIVER (Former Employee), LILY KYFebruary 2, 2014
Pros: when i quit
Cons: no breaks, low pay, unorganized, lack of management
typical day was working on the junk trucks and dealing with the maintance managers constant harassment. I learned that my manager would rather you put junk parts on trucks and have to hurry and get them on the road than fix them correctly. Management all sucks and all cover for each other aRses. there was nothing enjoyable about this job, worst disorganized, – more... mismanaged place I've ever been. very low pay and benefits were horrible. LILY KY LOCATION NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN AND ALL THEIR BUTTS SENT HOME...... – less

Great place for begginers in Heavy equipment operations. Hardest Part of the job is being able to endure outside weather. Good to bad coworker ratio is equal.
