Service customers' needs as truck driver (Former Employee) – Lennon, MI – November 5, 2013
A typical day at work is to drive to customer and remove trash. Take trash to landfill. The management cannot be trusted. They will use this information to control you. Coworkers are easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job is lifting trash all day long. The most enjoyable part of the job is you are kept busy all day long and the day goes by quickly.
good pay and benefits
management will try and to control you at all time/babysit you.

There is a reason why Waste Management "used" to be in the top 50 companies to work for and now they are below the top 250. If you are hired as a manager, the money is great. But will you be happy in a culture that changes daily?
Health Benefits, vacation time, holidays are great

A good place to find reliable employment. Waste is an undeniable part of our existence. As a result, the management and recycling of waste become a necessary part of our lives as well. Which makes this an excellent opportunity for employment.
Route Manager (Former Employee) – Silver Springs, NV – July 20, 2016
Extremely long hours- 60+/week Constant change in management, employees and initiatives. Little opportunity to impact work culture. Most days are spent dealing with accidents/spills/employee issues, not in managing the business towards improvement.
supervisor never was there at work when we were. they always left work so if needed something had to wait for them to come back to work. told to break federal driving laws. deny lunch due to a truck breakdown and that breakdown time was considered my lunch.
Where do I start. They don't care about you as an employee and no I'm not saying that because I'm bitter. I'm telling you the truth. They don't have enough work so you will be off 1 to 2 days a week, the site manager is amazing but his boss the short guy with the big ears is a joke and he only cares about what kind of raises he can get. The only good thing about this company is the amazing group of guys you get to work with.
You learn everyday, and you are able to use these resources to advance your career, without regret or ill will... You will love those that work here as its a close knit company that truly values their employees, and their dedication to the company.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – July 18, 2016
Waste Management is a very busy but non responsive to promotions and raises of their existing employees. Difficult call center information remains inadequate and instructional base is very confusing for long term employees.
