They abused us where I worked. 12 hour minimum days
former driver (Former Employee) – Richwoods, MO – July 28, 2017
We worked from 5am until 5 pm every day.It was ridiculous.I would pick up 1000 homes a day meanwhile another driver a mile away from me was picking up only 100 stops.It was total mismanagement,apathy,and ignorance at the management level.When I started the company was IESI and it was great.I clocked in at 3:30 am sometimes when it was summer to beat the heat and they allowed it.Waste Connections runs on a fascist system where each manager at each location follows a corporate model but tries to make it appear like they are one of your brothers.If you get hurt on the job,no matter how good you are,no matter how long you have worked there,they will find a reason to get rid of you.If you get hurt,get an attorney before signing or saying anything to them.I also witnessed in my time rookies getting hired on for more than I was making after 9 years in the place.It is the shadiest company I have ever worked for and I recommend staying away from them and not doing business with them.They may say they care about safety,but it is only short term to protect their bottom line.Long term you get stressed out,overheated,and exposed to the sun and bacteria longer because of their working hour policy.If you work there, contact a union and get a better situation for yourself.
My fellow drivers were good people
hours, workload, no respect. They plot against you
