Relax Place to Work
Assistant Controller (Former Employee) –  Rockford, ILApril 5, 2018
Relax pace, less pressure, pay is okay considering its location but he salary that was agreed on before I took the role was not what was offered to me. Management do not believe in second chances especially if you are a minority in a management role.
Pros
no stress
Cons
discrimination

I enjoyed working here, the atmosphere and managers/co-workers made work enjoyable. Managers were very approachable, you didn't feel as though you couldn't ask questions.

Run
Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee) –  NCFebruary 7, 2018
Management has no clue as to what it takes to run a landfill. They have idea that cause issues between employees and then blame the employees. They preach safety until it’s inconvenient for them. Very shady things that go on here. Everyone is afraid of corporate and do not want you to call or reach out to corporate.
Pros
Pay check, coworkers
Cons
Everything else and management

Management and workplace culture needs improvement
PLAN ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee) –  The Woodlands, TXDecember 12, 2017
Employee turnover is high. Management and workplace culture needs to be improved and show cavalier attitude about its employees...if the job gets done that is it.

Management Has No Idea What They Are Doing
HR (Former Employee) –  The Woodlands, TXJuly 24, 2017
If you apply for this company please note a few things:
1.Be careful as they can terminate you at anytime for no reason. They moved from California to Texas for this reason specifically.
2.There a trash company with no clue about technology or how to manage it.
3.They offer no remote/virtual options

My opinion of this WCI is they are a 3rd rate company and I would recommend a more reliable/stable company.
Pros
None

Great Company for it being garbage!
Laborer/ Fuel Tech (Former Employee) –  Freeport, TXJuly 9, 2017
The title was meant as a joke this was actually a great company to work for. It was a lot of hours though and you're expected to work under stressful conditions and some less than enjoyable weather.

Unfair in treat and very unorganized company

Legacy Progressive Waste Failure
District Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Houma, CNMarch 30, 2017
Company is built on Servant Leadership and the ideology is great and the talk from corporate is empowering but they will not support middle management in any capacity. I was Legacy Progressive Waste and they were not interested in supporting the "Change" or stepping in when local management was involved in illegal activities.
Pros
Good talk
Cons
No support

cared for the employees
Dispatch Driver (Former Employee) –  Kingsburg, CAFebruary 8, 2017
your typical day was dealing with customer account and payment. I learned different aspects of the company and like a engine everything had to work together for everything to be smooth running. Some of the management only cared about themselves while others cared about everyone. At the end the company was only looking at the bottom line
Pros
fulltime hours
Cons
more pay

A driver is under paid and gets treated like a pup.
The management has changed three times in three years. What does that tell you? This company is a joke.

Typical Work Day
Automated Route Driver (Former Employee) –  San Luis Obispo County, CANovember 29, 2015
MOST of my co-workers were fun to be around and work with. MOST of the day to day contact with customers on route is great. The NEW MANAGEMENT at this place is HORRIBLE, they don't care about you, they don't care that you talk to your customers throughout the day to make sure they know you are someone and not just a driver. MANAGEMENT constantly change the workplace rules to suit their needs to get you in trouble. Since the SLO Garbage family of businesses was purchased by Waste Connections a few years back the turn over rate has been high. NEW MANAGEMENT constantly looks for ways to take the hard work and great customer service you do and turn it against you. PAY, HOURS, and WORK is great but its not worth the relentless belittling you have to put up with from the current MANAGEMENT! You are reduced to a number and if you have been there several years, they find a way to terminate you and replace you with a lower wage driver to boost their profits!
Pros
MOST co-workers, Pay, Hours, Job, Benefits
Cons
Management

Fast Paced and High Standerds
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Vancouver WAOctober 1, 2015
They strive to provide a safe work internment for all employees. Some feel that the high standards are not compensated enough monetarily. Good benefits may make up for lower pay. Although there is a lot of corporate protocol, there is a relaxed atmosphere that many employees enjoy.

learn what you can and move on up
CSR/Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Kingsburg, CAJuly 8, 2014
I worked 40hrs a week I learned new computer soft wear and paper work along with the office skill that I already had knowledge of. Management had there moments of revolving doors there were managers that where meant to be managers and one's that went by the seat of the pants and really didn't know what they were doing. I got along with all my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was the lies that the company would feed the employees. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new skills and the first 2 years of being with the company.
Pros
great medical benefits
Cons
lies
