Helper (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – February 4, 2016
Once i clock in, i proceed to my assigned truck and head to our stationed routes. Since i'm great at what i do, my shifts never last as long as others. I usually help others since i finish early. I learned patience at this job and the management is pretty ok and always work around my availability. My co-workers are not as dependable but friendly and inviting. The hardest part about the job was being able to be in a good state with my body. I am getting worn out and i'm worried about my bodies state. The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to get through my routes and have customers thank me and reward me for properly handling their trash bins.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – Beckville, TX – January 29, 2016
I get to use heavy equipment in a work environment that few people get to enjoy! I love to work outdoors and this job has plenty of that. I also love to assist with the paperwork that most people would try to ignore.
Great chance to learn about heavy equipment from more experienced co-workers.
Productive and people environment. I learned a lot about people management and punctuality skills. The hardest part of the job was managing routes when unexpected call offs occurred. The most enjoyable part of the job was to see staff feel rewarded for their efforts at the end of the work day.

Every driver has a route that they work for the day. There are three lines of business; residential, commercial, roll off. Each driver has set routes that they work every week except for the roll off drivers in which they do the work as a call in/need basis. Each driver is on their own throughout the day and work at their own pace to get the routes done. The day is done when the work is done. The faster you work the sooner you get home.
