Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – June 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.
Driver (Former Employee) – Butler, KY – April 19, 2018
worst managment ever. you get yelled at for not breaking DOT regulations, you can't go fast enough to satisfy them without breaking the law. you work 50 hours a week and then some. The pay was the only good thing
Driver (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – April 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.
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.
Residential One Man Driver (Current Employee) – Cleveland, OH – April 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!
need helping communicatng with others to provide a better service
Commercial Accounts Manager (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – February 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.
Residential City Supervisor (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – January 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.
Rear load trash driver for residential (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – November 26, 2017
Not a bad company to work for hours are early morning some routes are small and some you cant even get everything on the truck or you have to go and help other finsh there route for the crew you work for
Front Load Driver (Current Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – November 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
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.
