Process took about 45 minutes. At the very end of interview they tell you that you start in the back of a rear loader for 3-9 years doing 800 pick ups with 1-6 cans/bags per pick up only making $125 per day in a 5 day work week and anything extra is $10 an hour for helpers pay. U will work 55 hours per week. Monday and tuesday are the hard days plan on working 25-30 hours just those 2 day. You switch with driver every hour.

Run the other way. If Waste Connections owns it, it's not worth your time.

It's the garbage company you have to want to do the job. Keep and open mind.

Answered - Supervisor/Manager (Former Employee) - Bridge City, LA

Report answer

Pay attention to the reviews about stress, bad management, low pay and long hours. Do not dismiss the comments about the treatment of employees, be very aware of sneaky, underhanded, number driven tactics by supervisors and managers. You are not an asset to them, no matter how it may appear, you are expendable! Don't plan on a lengthy career with opportunity for advancement. Not at all what I'd hoped for or expected out a company that preaches a lot but only holds drivers accountable.
