Not a horrible place to work
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  Dexter, MOApril 19, 2018
Republic Services isn't the best place to work but it isn't the worst either. Most of the equipment they use is very dated. Most of the trucks break down on a daily basis which makes your day longer and harder to do .
Pros
Good people
Cons
Management could use some work

Poor General Management and HR Management Locally
Plant Manager (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCApril 19, 2018
Company employees insecure GM's and HR Managers are inept and never present or available for questions. Very little direction and no clear answers when questions were asked about new policies and procedures. Hiring process for staff/team members is extremely slow and almost non-existent. Recruiters of the company are in AZ and I was trying to hire people in NC. Very large disconnect during this process. It is extremely slow so be patient if you are applying for employment. SR. Management wants your opinion but doesn't listen to anything. They have pre-determined what they will do and take nothing into consideration. It's a true dictatorship.
Pros
Pay was good
Cons
Poorly managed locally, slow hiring process, no true leadership

Women are not equal at Republic Services
Web Content Developer (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZApril 18, 2018
Working in the IT Department I found that my skills and hard work didn't pay as much as the men in the department who did what I did or had the same skill set as I. When I confronted a manager I got a smoke screen.
Pros
Work from Home opportunity
Cons
pace vs. ability

Attendance
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCApril 16, 2018
They change the policy for the attendance in the middle of the year. Setting a lot of people up didn’t care that they told us one thing and changed it. Same with pay they just had different job titles but never increased the pay when they did they just reduced what certain people was doing. Management sucked nobody cares about the employee there no empathy to any situation
Pros
Friendly stuff, nice clean work environment
Cons
Short lunches, poor management

An interesting place to work
Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Greensboro, NCApril 14, 2018
Fast paced work but not enough help to do the job at hand.Often asked to work more and more and no incentive to do so.Management knows the problems but refuse to correct them and thus you are left in a hole that you can't get out of.
Pros
A job
Cons
No help and bad equipment

Horrible management
Commercial & Industrial Sales (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOApril 13, 2018
Poor management, zero training, no guidance. Very political and people who didn’t deserve jobs there were in management positions. Zero help when complaints were logged. No help in advancing or moving to a different role, you were expected to just deal with it.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything

Just a number.
CDL Driver (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDApril 11, 2018
If you are ready to become a number. No advancement from within. If you are not a union shop get ready to ready to be screwed. Loyalty to company is ignored. Stay away from Boise shop.

Horrible work/life balance and management
Division employee (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZApril 10, 2018
Company has a lot to offer someone if management likes that person. I was a temp employee and preformed better than half of the perm employees but didn't get the same benefits. Management is petty and unprofessional. You thought high school was bad but go work here and you will think differently.

Okay place to work if you like to work around garbage

Heavy but inconsistent daily workload

Some locations have severe inconsistencies in pay and shifts, and others are the same across the board.

Poorly managed.
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  MassachusettsApril 8, 2018
Poor management from the top down. They talk the talk, but don't walk the walk. Revolving door management. Bring in people from outside the industry is a disaster. Route supervision is more than just asking if everything got picked up. The draconian safety culture overwhelming to the point where the worker looses the focus on the job.
Pros
A paycheck
Cons
Head games
