Not good
Its a place where you can expect for some of the employees to drag the night out you start at 2PM and will work 12-14 hours that could have been done in 8,-10 kids playing smoking not working
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
No support its a kid running the night shift that hasn't got a clue

Amazing company
Best career I’ve had! It’s a fantastic company in every way! The salary, commission and expense check made my income around $85k per year.
Yearly Company meetings to announce and recognition of the company top 10 Account Executives.

I truly miss the company and everyone who worked there!

It's a trash company, there is nothing clean about it
It's a underpaid job for the amount of hazardous material you come in contact with, blood , oil, rats, snakes , 100,000 maggots per trash can etc. The job should clearly start their employees out with 30 dollars per hour

last resort employment
Better then sitting around at home half the time. No growth or advancement. The company in Conowingo had their favorites, if you slept or did personal favors for those in the office you had a spectacular route and opportunity for growth.

Good pay, awful maintenance and mgmt
I will try to be as fair as possible. The pay is good. The benefits are good.
The general manager is solid but the supervisors could care less, specifically about safety unless you set off the drivecam. As far as maintenance? One driver wrote up a frayed rolloff cable for over a week then it snapped because they didn't fix it. It could have killed someone.

Don’t work here
If you want lots of hours and to hate your life this is the place for you. No appreciation, never once will you hear a thank you. The drivers are a holes and so is management. No one appreciates anything you do.

Poor
Trucks broke down every day. Would have to take trucks out that where not safe on the road. Older trucks that wouldn't operate the way they should. Every day you worked at least 12 to 14 hours a day. Made for no family life at home.

Everything about waste industries
They have drive cams watching your every move. Money is good but you dont have a home life. They make you work 11.5 hours a day and take thirty minutes for lunch and not give you an opportunity to take. Training strinks. Lead driver dont help you with the job just runs his mouth. High management just looks for a reason to fire. All you get is 3 mistakes that's it.
Pros
Money
Cons
Everything else

The job it self wasn't as bad as the task giving to us the workers. The way the managers dealt with situations was just not good. Truthfully overall the job isn't bad.

It's okay
The atmosphere is what it is catering to both the young and old. It's relaxed. The people are pretty easy to talk to and there's never a dull moment!!

It's an O.K. place to work if you like to work ALOT of hours.
I started at 5am and didn't stop until about 6pm. Sometimes it would sooner, just depends on the load. I learned how to deal with bad oders at the dumps, where as the management needed a little bit more management skills. Overall if your single and really like to work long hours it will be a great job, whereas being married it was a little difficult for me..

No value for the employees
This company would be so much better if upper management would value their employees more. We take 80-100 calls a day and at least 50 of them are people calling you when they are upset and being extremely disrespectful. Management will never step in and have your back.

The good is stability the bad is the pay
The job is not bad but the pay is horrible and pretty much set you will get 40 hours of overtime biweekly pay so that’s why people deal with it but it’s just not good to work that much with little pay if they paid more and hired more they would save more money and cut the work hours in half they just haven’t figured that part out yet

Fairly Ordinary.
Not much to say.
The pay is to be expected as is and the work can be cumbersome but you know before you sign up, why conplain. It's a job and puts money on the bank and basically anyone can do.

It was okay to work there.
I was not a bad place to work but I found no room for advancement. I liked working there and I learned a lot of things. I give it a 2 thumbs up as a work place.
