Horrible place to work
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHJune 26, 2018
I worked for Rumpke through an temp service for 90 days. The managers were somewhat nice but always rushing you. The trainer and training was only three days and the trainer was very rude to everyone including customers. The two people that knew the most about the company and the routes at the Dayton, Ohio location were the nicest and most helpful but management didn’t want you to ask them a thing. Instead of training you correctly they corrected your mistakes and left them on the desk daily not showing you what you even done wrong. They expected you to know their systems and routes with three days training.
Pros
Hour lunch to breathe
Cons
Poor management and training

Take a job here only if you have no other options
Driver (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHApril 13, 2018
Under paid for the work you do.No job security.No appreciation for the job you do.Only 3 holidays off.Company does not pay for medical card or work boots.They have the worse repair shop I've ever seen poorly ran and supervised.They preach about being family oriented but at the end of the day they will stab you in the back and kick you to the curb.I would have to be totally desperate to work for this company ever again.Don't waste your time and energy.
Pros
It's a paycheck
Cons
Too many to list

Interesting place to work
Route Auditor (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHApril 9, 2018
If you like working odd hours this is the job for you. As an auditor my schedule was never the same. Nothing beats working 6am to 6pm then getting a call saying you need to get up at 1 am the next day to work another 12 hours. Management is just okay, some managers are willing to help while others act like it is the end of the world when you ask any kind of question. The manager expects you to know every route by memory after about a month working there. They expect you to work 60 hours a week and have no life outside of work.
Pros
A lot of hours which means a lot of OT
Cons
Schedule always changing

Underpaid and Over worked!
Residential One Man Driver (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHApril 1, 2018
Most places it pays to be good at your job, but not here! Always picking up the slack for other people, with no incentive program to do so. Management is worthless! They lack communication skills, overwork the good employees, and will sacrifice your job to save there's. If you are a new employee there is a sign on bonus with a decent starting pay. Those of us who stuck it out as a skeleton Crew for so many years, get a knife in the back, and poor raises. I love being a Garbage man, but lack time with my family. Also, lots of Band-Aids on the trucks. Our whole fleet is falling apart as we speak!
Pros
Exercise, Talking to Residents, Fresh Air
Cons
Management, Overworked, Underpaid

Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHFebruary 16, 2018
Good workers are required to carry the bad ones. Management over looks what hard workers do. Physically hard on the body and equipment often fails or breaks down.

Fun place to work, learned to drive commercial trucks
Residential Trash Driver (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHFebruary 14, 2018
Overall a good place to work. Start the day with pre trip. Then you drive out to route, pick up your trash and go to the dump to offload everything you picked up during the day.
Pros
Physical job keeps you in shape, management not to strict on the drivers
Cons
Long hours, working in whatever the weather is

need helping communicatng with others to provide a better service
Commercial Accounts Manager (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYFebruary 5, 2018
lack of communication and willingness to hear what might make the issue better was not there. I was given a great spiel about the Rumpke name and how we do things differently. this was an exaggeration and my newly signed clients were being skipped, missed and told that it was do to blocked containers or too much trash in containers. for the most part this was an excuse on the drivers to finish work early.
Pros
pay
Cons
communication inside the company

It can be a really great place to work.
Residential City Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHJanuary 9, 2018
If not for the extreme hours as a Supervisor at this company, and the salary that did not increase even when i worked 60-80 hours weekly, I might have stayed. Working as a driver can be extremely beneficial if the effort is put in. Management needs to be looked into though.
Pros
Benefits, paid time off, physical exercise

Stressful but ok
Front Load Driver (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHNovember 12, 2017
The biggest issue working at rumpke is truck maintenance. They have a handful of mechanics that put bandaids on problems that turn into bigger problems down the road. You are assigned a truck but don't expect to stay in it all week because of constant breakdowns. Pay is pretty good, good benefits, head mangers are good, secondary managers seem to be power hungry and give you a hard time. Overall, it's ok but I'm not convinced I'm going to retire from here. Trucks are a big issue. Absolute junk. A lot of their trucks are 15 and 20 years old and unsafe to drive
Pros
Decent compensation
Cons
Extremely bad maintenance

Great Flexibility
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Dayton OhioNovember 4, 2017
Calling on B2B and commercial Industrial was a great blend of customer base to call on. Working with school systems,churches and large businesses for recycling programs was a great part of my job description. Setting up large compactor systems for large refuse and recycling users was very rewarding. The business culture was very positive in most cases. Having the largest landfill 50 miles away was a huge benefit.
Pros
Flexible Schedule
Cons
Most of the family held the key positions
