Manufacturing environment

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
None applicable for now. Same manufacturing environment. The usual day to day work life. Over all a place to start but definitely not stay. Learn the basics.

Productive

I think it could be better,I feel like seniority should have first choose and we should not be looked over and why do you have to go to another company and someone in our company got the same ability to do the same thing as opening and are satisfied with the pay that comes with that job.

Pros

We get Holiday meals

Cons

The holiday meals be cold.

Work company ever!

Your valued at nothing! All they care about it themselves and how many cans get off the ground. Work you like a dog! Talk down to you. The trucks are trash! I was in the shop 2-5 times a day for the same problem, and same truck. Favoritism like crazy! Don’t waste your time, glad I only gave them a short time of my life.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

If you are trying to make money and don't mind getting dirty.

If you don't mind working long hours and getting dirty, then it's ok to get you by. Typically start at 4am and work 10 to 14 hours a day,.Monday through Friday and sometimes weekends. The work is recycling and trash so expect to get dirty.

Epitome of a horrible company

Management is the worse, they don't care anything about the safety of the people all they care about is picking up the trash. The trucks are constantly breaking down putting drivers at risk for an accident or even death. If a driver gets in an accident if they like you your job is safe, however, if they don't then your immediately terminated. They promote based on favoritism rather than skill.

Pros

A lot of overtime

Cons

Under paid, overworked, under appreciated

Okay

If you are in the sanitation business than this would be a great fit. Okay company to work for. People were okay and the work hours were full time. Overall I had a pretty good experience while with the company.

The smell

It was a fairly easy but tedious job. Not very friendly. The crew were mostly Hispanic so barely any English. I didn't really care for it. It's a great starting for a highscooler

No place to work for

Back stabbing mangers and human resource. Unprofessional people...Cant due investigations correct they fire me for expressing how I feel about the shop and lazy coworkers .They let 2nd lead person sell moon shine to the manager and co workers...They fire 3 of my friends for posing with a. Liquor bottle and cups. There was no evidence they were drinking on the job. Selling moonsbine should be a termination but it didnt happen to the 2nd shift lead

Don't work here

The good part you have a job that will give you hours. The bad part is the management supervisors and hr Dept all need to have compassion on other people and not have nasty attitudes. The work environment is horrible and the people there only care bout themselves and it's not right your treated like a number instead of an actual person and that is crazy.

company only value their equipment

I was placed in a malfunctioning vehicle in which the company took no responsibility. The training was to watch and learn type of training. Most of their trucks were malfunctioning.

Hmmmmm

They talk a good pep talk to get u in once in things start to fall apart slowly u train for 90 days and after 90 days they put u on tonage if u don't no how it pay ask then u will be surprised and then u u have to work Truck all ways breaking down . meachanic find it hard to get parts somerime taking parts from one truck to put on your truck. As a driver it's frustrating teyin to do your job you was just in the shop to get something fix go out to work and the same thing all over again. Some time it have to be toe back to shop mess your day up. Property nasty rats magnets dusty. Not good can be a health risk for some people. Floods when it rain bad at the dump site could be bad. Will take your bounce. Have a accident not your fault but equipment malfunction they will take your safety bounce the truck r in bad shape drity in side can be a health risk!

Pros

Can make momey some people love it there.

Cons

At your own risk

Terrible

This place is a joke for mechanics. Co-workers lie on you , they drink on the job , the supervisor doesn't care what goes on on the floor , cliques are heavy and if u aren't in one you are sol and on your own, you're off on holidays but just to come in on saturday and forced to make it up or u lose your holiday pay , co-workers stab you in the back , gossip gets around like a wildfire , etc. If you love drama and being accused of stuff you dont even do but get in trouble anyway then this is the place for you!!!

Pros

None

Easy job...But

The poorest mgmt I have ever worked for, everyday you are set up for failure. The status quo isnt about efficiency its just chaos. Every workday is dragged out because of poor planning and even worse equipment. Yes you can make decent money if you're lucky to end up in a truck that doesn't breakdown daily. You will be pushed to your limits because your coworkers are either broken down or dont care when they get off so they are waiting for you to come finish their route. But nothing said here will discourage you cause you don't believe all the negative comments well they are completely true but come on and join the team and see how bad it really is..good luck

Great....IF u dont want a life but working and sleeping

They work you like a pure slave. They start at 6am and they WILL work you all they way to 8pm at night. They will push for u to operate these trash trucks in residential areas, even in the DARK. Then they will wonder why people are crashing into stuff. It’s Dark outside, some of these residential streets are very very tight, u cant see every trash can in the dark, and the headlights on these huge trucks have very low level headlights. And its hard to see on the side of the trucks when u are in the DARK. So u cant SEE. 2nd of all, all management cares about is how many cans u can dump in a day. They also are short handed all the time, as they cant keep people due to the unreasonably long hours, and pushing people to work in dangerous situations....like working in the dark. Management just sit in the office and they get in a truck to help. And they work a lot of Saturdays cause they cant complete the route assignments through the week. Now Imagine working Tuesday thru Saturday 6am to 8 pm. You WILL BE TOO TIRED to do much else. So u won’t have no life and a fat check. The best thing about this place is the fact that most of your co—workers seem very very friendly and they will speak and greet u out of habit. And often times, the management team will meet and greet you as well, so i will give them that much credit. However, the office is full of back stabbers and favoritism.....if u ever decide to work here.....then Don’t trust the management team and dont trust the two dispatcher women either. And I’m going to end this review on that note.

Unpleasant work environment

They will say they appreciate you one week and not like anything you do the next. Management will also put you down in front of everyone in the department. The show favoritism towards individuals. If they don’t like you for whatever reason no matter how will you do your job, you will not make it there.

Rather Work In The Fields

This is a very Easy job but they make it very very very difficult. Management does not care about you all they care about is you going out there like a good slave picking up cans from sun up to sun down. Start time is about 6 and you get off about 7 almost 8 everyday!!! 9/10 of the trucks there should not be on the road. DOT would SHUT THIS PLACE DOWN IF THEY KNEW!! Trucks do not get fixed they pretty much just put a band aid on them until it breaks the next day if not the next hour or so and drivers get frustrated with that. They pretty much hold you hostage when your truck is down until they so call "Fix" it or get put in a different truck thats worst. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE
