Not for me
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Morocco, INOctober 22, 2018
It is a trash call in complaint center and I didn't like answering the phones for old people who weren't happy with a smallest thing. I sis feel the training was sufficient but in the end it wasn't the place for me

back stabbing and manipulation at all levels.
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Anaheim, CAOctober 20, 2018
Management is inexperienced and ignorant of lean management, leadership and ignores company policy and the union contract. THE UNION REPS ARE IN THE BACK POCKET OF MANAGERS AND SUPERVISORS.

Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Jenison, MIOctober 17, 2018
If you’re a mechanic, don’t ever work for a company that makes you sign federal DOT paperwork when the truck isn’t safe to be on the road. Shop not setup for work being done, and no training.
Pros
None

Easy job, but angry customers make it hard to deal with
Customer Resource Associate (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCOctober 16, 2018
The job itself is easy, but angry/frustrated customers make the job unbearable most of the time. The compensation is low and employees have to apply for government assistance to make ends meet. Overall, its a great job if you really need one. The hours are better than most call centers. It is not the worst job to have, but it takes a lot of patience to deal with 90% furious customers all day.
Pros
Monday through Friday schedule with Overtime offered
Cons
Low pay and poor benefits

All about politics and gossip.

Pros
Good benefits.
Cons
Short staff. Long hours. Pore equipment.

not a good place to work
worker (Former Employee) –  Scott, LAOctober 9, 2018
I would not recommend anyone to work here. Management is all about cutting cost so that they get a bonus at the end of the year. they do not extensively train new employees for the job they are hired for.

Great Company to work for...if you get the right division and management
Territory Representative (Current Employee) –  Delmar, MDOctober 7, 2018
Company is trying hard to be greater than WM. Just be sure the management is not looking to just step all over you to get to Phoenix. But if you find that good division, they will help you succeed.
Pros
Free Trash
Cons
Can be overwhelming

Idiots
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NV 89124October 7, 2018
Management has a bad role is the treatment of their employees. I find they lie and cover up to protect themselves instead of the employees who make them look like stars.
Pros
Great pay
Cons
Treated like a homeless person and spitted on like your the garbage they collect.
