I worked in operations at WM for many many years. There is a lot of corporate game playing. Restructuring , layoffs and basically payoffs Severence. I've seen it all, union and non union. The use of the cameras to discipline is absolutely outrageous. They can't keep good employees because of the lack of trust. Picking up trash is not rocket science.They need to hire managers with experience. Why would a 20 year veteran driver listen to some safety guy who went to college but has never driven a trash truck in his life? A lot of loyal veteran employees 20 plus years are done with WM. The division I worked at may never recover. TRENTON NJ

Quit using drive-cam as a gotcha tool. Pay raises, and start treating people correctly. I am a current employee and not once have I ever been told thank you for anything. But they're quick to write you up for every mistake. Management is a joke.
