Not a fun place, very unhygenic environment.
Management does not take well to employees' ideas. Management will leave clerical staff and leave early on Fridays, no compensation. The enjoy everything. They do not promote education or training. They feel very insecure. They have their favorites!
Pros
Rarely anything of value
Cons
No breaks, beside lunch monitored everything

Challenging Place of Employment
Waste Management is a wonderful company, but you must be flexible and hardworking. The benefits are great; however, the daily work locations can vary greatly.

Unhealthy Work Environment
At least once a week the manager calls you not to come in to work due to job availability, you are not compensated for that day. They try to have you use your PTO instead. You never know when you will receive a text in the morning telling you not to come in. On several occasions, I've left the house only to be told to go back home because there were no jobs for me that day. Day to day is unpredictable.
They push workers to do more jobs, to rush through traffic to prevent from working overtime. they have no regard for worker safety, trucks are not adequately repaired. Terrible management

Great place to work
They are very professional,, and they expect their drivers to be dedicated and professional! Great pay and benefits, room for advancement, top of the line equipment, great maintenance and they support their drivers, every year there's a cost of living raise, safety is a priority and their focus!

Productive sales office
I effectively organized prospective clients by developing sound marketing plans and maintaining key information in the prospect database. I worked with legal sales contracts between Waste Management and private and government businesses.
I enjoyed using in-depth industry and prepared complex proposals and made recommendations on equipment optimization and leasing options. Proposing customer solutions that are compliant with appropriate local, state and federal regulations is becoming tedious.

Stressful,long hours. Poor work-life balance
You work 12 hours a day. You always get pushed to do more work, yet they always stress safety. You can't do as much work as they want you to do and be as safe as possible.
Pros
$100 a year for workboots
Cons
Very little home time

intresting and fun place to work
Typical day was phones ringing and drivers coming in and out, having patients and prioritizing workload was a learning experience everyday. Management was very involved and willing to help out, co workers were all team players and fun to be around. the hardest part of this job was handling upset customers, the most enjoyable part of this job was talking to so many different people on a daily basis and building a good work relationship with them.
Pros
lots of advancement opportunities, fun place to work
