Stay away from the pompous CEO
Maintenance (Former Employee), canadaSeptember 16, 2014
Cons: you wont succeed if your not in the circle of yes men
This was a great company until they brought in the CEO from the US to run it. He has destroyed what was built, has very low employee moral and very high turn over.

Garbage Truck Driver - Progressive Waste
Garbage Truck Driver (Current Employee), Vernon BCJune 10, 2014
A typical day would be picking up garbage while having great customer service. Most of my co-workers are not very helpful. The hardest part of my job is picking up cans around 200 pounds. Most enjoyable part of my job is working outside.

poor company moral, don't appreciate their employees, high staff turnover in sales and managment, poor communication skills btwn mgmnt and staff
outside sales (Former Employee), bcMay 3, 2014
Pros: good benefits
This company promises the moon and doesn't deliver. Constantly hiking up rates and expecting sales staff to lie to keep current clients and if they cant keep the client or have to reduce rates the employee suffers by losing commissions. Roll-backs and losses are taken off the commissions of the sales staff...you want to work for company that works against good human morals...work for progressive waste.

Stay Away
Outside Sales Rep (Current Employee), Coquitlam BCDecember 16, 2013
Pros: decent salary and suburb location.
Cons: culture, micromanagement, lack of technology, 5 year contracts
unrealistic targets that are trying to be achieved through micromanagement. Company relies on doing several price increases per year to achieve their results. No value add when it comes to garbage sales as customers want cheapest prices and dont care who hauls it. local senior management does not address the real issues. this company works in the dark with no technology for staff. honestly this company has not evolved since the 80's.
