Great pay and extremely good benefits but it’s a sweat shop
Commercial Driver (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – September 17, 2018
Waste Management is an okay job for those who want to work a lot and make a lot of money. Ours was Union. Which resulted in good pay (25.76 an hour) and extremely great benifits!! Commercial starts at 2am and you get off whenever. Usually 12-14 hours a day. Routes are always growing. Means longer days the longer you are there. A lot of guys who’ve been there for years look 10 years older due to the stress and lack of time for the gym or healthy eating. Managers were pretty good! Residential started at 530am with same pay. You can take home 1000 dollars a week working 54 hours a week. So all in all, it’s a good job, but maybe temporary. I just didn’t have it in me to keep working weird days off, nights and extremely long hours. Wide variety of new and ancient trucks. A lot of guys work there and do 6 days a week because they hate their wives and home life.
Benifits are amazing. Great pay. Union.
Long hours. Early start times. Co workers complain a lot
