Commercial Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMarch 16, 2014
Very fun and relaxed workplace, great group of driver's & co-workers for the most part. Of course, it was much better before the merge, buy-out & new management & leadership. The new didn't seem to want to keep too many of the original around...for some reason?! We were talked to & treated much better when we were Republic Waste...before the merge & then buy-out of us remaining. New leadership/management is very arrogant, really enjoys his power & abuses it. Threatens in an example story telling way & always with a grin on his face. Loves & will go head over hills, even been known of hiring private detectives trying to catch someone at something...like a Tom & Jerry game & then tells & shares with all...certainly breaching professionalism &/or confidentuality?! We had virtually no turnover before & then when he/new management was in place it was constant & tremendous...even with new hirings that was not originally Republic Waste employees...! It's sad to think that one man has the power & could cause so much demise of what is virtually at good company & a great place to work...! It's one of those deals that you better hope he likes you & you stay on his good side...or he will ride you like an unbroken horse...until you brake?!
Pros
Great, fun, relaxed & happy place to work, good pay & benefits, great driver's & co-workers for the most part.
Cons
Leadership enjoys & abuses his power, threatens & watches people in an around about way, is dishonest, untrustworthy, sneaky...& let's you know he enjoys it & there is nothing you can do about it!!

Good place to work
Diesel mechanic (Former Employee) –  Pflugerville, TXMay 21, 2018
Having the parts you need to repair trucks was a problem.
Most of the coworkers will work as hard as other. Management cared to a certain extent to help the employees.
Pros
Good benefits and pay

Poor management skills
Rolloff Driver (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 11, 2018
Company is going through change after being bought. Management is good old boy style. Some hired from within with no management skills. Other managers have been let go because of gender bias.
Pros
There's always going to be trash that needs to be picked up.
Cons
Poor equipment, bad management.
