Great
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAJune 16, 2019
It's like clockwork. You, like people all over the world, go through a drawn-out interview process, vetting and getting vetted for weeks to determine the right fit, and then you finally agree to terms. After you're hired, things look promising, and there's a buzz of excitement in the air as you meet new co-workers and dive into a sexy project.

Local Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Conroe, TXJune 14, 2019
Expectations are to drive a garbage truck at mind bending speeds to achieve company goals. They profess safety, but not at the expense of productivity.

Work is rewarding but travel interferes with work life balance
Human Resources Manager (Current Employee) –  Mount Washington, KYJune 14, 2019
I enjoy the benefits and compensation at Waste Management but the work life balance is lacking with the expectations of duties. With all the changes occurring at the corporate level, senior management is going overboard with trying to prove their worth and putting pressure on people that have always done their job.

Stressful
Refuse Collector (Current Employee) –  Saugus, CAJune 13, 2019
Very stressful place to work. Don’t care about there employees. Old truck with no air conditioning. Truck always Breaking down. Always adding extra to your already super long route. Employees Calling out everyday because of anxiety. Forced to Alter documents for DOT. Forced to work in the dark because all cans must be picked up. Out till 10:00 pm from 6:00 am. No lunch break most of the time or you’ll fall behind. They’ll threaten you if you finish with your route and don’t call in cause you have to go help others that broke down because of old over heated trucks.

Good company to work for
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Dayton, OHJune 13, 2019
Good place to work as far as the benefits. However, high turn over with management and it is definitely Corporate America. You have to please the stakeholders. Expectations to perform are extremely high.

Disappointing work environment
Residential Driver (Former Employee) –  Menomonee Falls, WIJune 12, 2019
This company is a joke! The equipment that we used to pick up trash constantly broke down. They sent us out in equipment that often time would be dangerous to drive. They routes were not managed correctly and management did not care. The amount of employees that came and left was like a revolving door on a daily basis. Don't bother to learn anyone's name - they will be gone the next day.
Pros
None
Cons
Horrible work environment

Great pay but very poor quality of life
Heavy Duty Technician (Current Employee) –  Memphis, TNJune 12, 2019
A typical day at work will never happen. The culture at waste management is beyond poor. Every job position is a rotating door; this includes site managers, route managers, fleet manager, supervisors, mechanics, and drivers. The functionality of the mechanic shop is poorly managed due to the rotating door effect. The biggest issue the site has is inventory and scheduled maintenance. The only good thing is this job will teach you how to overcome several mechanical issues with as little as possible. This job should be used only as a temporary stepping stone to further your career.

Changing schedule i.e. longer lunch to avoid overtime

A regrettable choice, dont do it.
Environmental Hazardous Waste Project Specialist (Current Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAJune 8, 2019
A regrettable choice, dont do it. A sad example of a worplace.
Run by a psycho manic witch. False promises, all made to simply fill positions.
They dont pay well, and they will tell you that it is because they offer good and relatively inexpensive insurance.
Pros
Insurance
Cons
Lack of skilled management
