Anonymous (Former Employee), Commerce, CA – June 17, 2013
Overall this company (the company itself, and NOT the people here) has been decent to me, but don't plan on moving up at all here unless you kiss management's you-know-what because hard work goes right out the door. You can also look forward to being backstabbed and lied about by fake people while these hypocrits carry on doing whatever they want. If – more... you're looking for a flat-rate job to keep a steady (and low) income while remaining a drone in the shadows then this is the place for you! Goodbye WM!! – less
This conpany is horrible they have not one care about their employees. Its favoritism throughout the company. Being part of the in crowd is the only way to a promotion. Hours are horrible you are put on ot without being advised. You can switch your entire life around for WM but they won't compromise with you. The pay is an insult for the work I do especially – more... with the bonuses being cut down to where they are. Wm used to be a fun place to work when I started now its just a job. The turn over rate is horrible I've witnessedva whole new staff in 3 years. People are fired for the littlest things and there is no consideration if you are late due to bad weather its kill yourself and be at work to make us money so we can pay you guys pennies. Not a good place to work dont waste your time – less
Landfill Sales (Former Employee), Industrial – June 12, 2013
Cons: management in midwest (industrial group), instability, politics
I would not recommend a Sales Position in the Industrial Division in the Midwest states. Extremely high turn over for no reason. One Director has terminated over 20 people for no reason in the last few years. HR allows it to happen. They will not stick up for the employee's. One would think a few red flags might be raised, but they don't care.
Used – more... to be a good company but not anymore. Do not waste your time with this company IMHO – less
Major Account Manager (Former Employee), Ewing, NJ – June 11, 2013
I consider myself very fortunate to have worked for Waste Management. It was a constant learning experience with top notch training programs. The people on all levels management, co workers and customers were a pleasure to work with. I enjoyed selling our services.
FLEET MANAGER (Former Employee), Naples, FL – June 7, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: you feel like everyday is your last day
I used to love this company. After replacing upper management my whole life changed. I would not suggest working for WMI. Its sad when your area manager gets fired and one year later 6 out of 18 fleet managers like myself are once again looking for a job.We seen it coming.
Typically work on 15 - 20 agreements actively at a time. Learned how to manage multiple priorities with my customers and meet their needs for value and timeline. The Supply Chain management allows me the freedom to work with my internal customers to develop relationships and meet the customer's needs. My coworkers are great to work with. There is a – more... can do attitude and a flow to work concept to provide assistance where needed. The most enjoyable part of my job is the opportunity to mentor the less experienced co-workers. – less

Refuse Driver/Dispatcher (Former Employee), Kirkland WA – May 27, 2013
Pros: stayed in shape, and decent hours
Cons: management was very negative
a typical day began at 5 am, after a safety meeting get the truck prepared and begin the route. picked up residential customers trash and recycling and went to the transfer station. I learned how to operate class B vehicles efficiently. Management didn't care about the employes. Co workers were often frustrated. Hardest part of the job was staying positive – more... after management told us only negative things. I enjoyed starting early and being off early – less
