Equipment is horrible management is horrible expect to break down at least once a day and your lucky if you have heat or ac and good luck getting it repaired anything you write up will say pending for at least 3 weeks managers dont seem to care for the drivers been through 3 supervisors and nothing has changed all they care about is the route getting off the ground no raises only way to get a pay increase is to transfer positions.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZDecember 4, 2018
Another day, another dollar. Working at Republic Services was all fun and and games... literally, there's a game lounge in the area. The workplace environment is fairly good for the most part, there are some weird and pervy folks that work there but, they're easy to spot for the most part.

Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Shelby, NCDecember 4, 2018
If you are looking for a company that is worried about the wrong things, then this is the company for you. You will have no support from above. You are told to focus on one thing then told that you should not worry about that and just focus on another.
Pros
Great people at the locations
Cons
NO support from upper management

Amazing
Automated Side Loader (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INNovember 27, 2018
There's absolutely nothing wrong with this place. The only reason I left is because I needed better pay to take care of my house, daughter and wife.
It is an amazing place. If you show up on time, do your work well, and don't cause any issues, just as at any job, you won't receive any negativity from anyone. They have so many benefits and provide your uniforms along with things such as safety glasses, high vis vests, etc. Every once in a while they'll even provide breakfast. You start times are set for the most part the same time everyday. The pay is good for a class B cdl driver, better than most companies. The supervisors I worked for were very laid back, respectful, and courteous to your needs. You get 5 sick days, and 5 vacation days. Both separate.

The only bad side? It's trash. It stinks. At the time I started with them I had already been doing trash for many years so I was use to it.

Great place. Great benefits. And great people. As long as you're a team player and are able to begin remembering your routes, the job is actually pretty easy.

Company run on fear not respect
Parts Manager (Current Employee) –  Fairfield, CANovember 26, 2018
If you speak up you are pigeon holed. Do what you're told and be quiet and be prepared to not have a work life balance. I worked for this company for over a decade and nothing ever changes. The diversity stops at the Operations Supervisor level. If you are not a white male you will not go far.

cut and dry
Charter Landfill, Laborer/Spotter (Former Employee) –  Odessa, TXNovember 26, 2018
You show up for work in the dark, get to the area you are going to work in, stay focused and aware at all times. You get dirty, cold, wet, sun burned and somewhere in the middle sometimes. You can trip and fall and get back up sometimes it's funny sometimes it's not so much. You kill snakes, rats, and spiders. You clean just to watch it get dirty. You make friends with some and some you don't. But never close friends.
Pros
You do get paid.
Cons
The raise was a .09 cents. That's right, 9 cents.

Great place to work. The hours can and will be long and depending on how far your yard is from your house it can be very exhausting at the end of day.

Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  United StatesNovember 19, 2018
It's the same story of a corporate job - Area/upper management is way out of touch with the field. They literally do not know how the day-to-day operations truly work at the division level.
