Contractor/Data Entry Admin Assistant (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – December 12, 2013
Waste Management was unfortunetly a contract based position, but such a great company to work for. Everyone is so nice and welcoming, and incredibly appreciative of the work I do. It is a shame it was only for a short period of time, I would have really enjoyed to stay as an employee.
Garbage Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – February 11, 2016
A typical day at work from start to finish was basically driving the truck and pitching garbage, switching with my partner every half hour or so when not working with a TO. I learned to be a team player and work professionally in safely picking up and disposing of garbage.
Working with co-workers was sometimes challenging especially if their work ethic wasn't quite up to mine. The hardest part of the job was repeatedly get up and down the truck and working in areas of heavy garbage.
The most enjoyable part of the job was at the end of the day when my route got cleared without the need of extra help ... a very satisfying feeling.
4 day workweek (Monday to Thursday)
Being sent out to pick up renovation materials when not supposed to.
Residential Waste Collector (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – November 30, 2015
Good job.Poorly managed. Picking up recycling/organic material in Peel Region and dumping it at MiRF. There is no room for advancement and good work not rewarded as it once was. Co workers are ok, but majority are lazy.
Good place to work to gain some experience, but no room for advancement
Route Mananger (Former Employee) – Ontario – November 24, 2015
Great company culture, with extra emphasis on employee safety. Area management doesn't support local management team when it's needed the most. Hours are long, and sometime expectations on employees are far too much for the yearly salary. Employee advancement seems to be gauged on popularity rather than on performance.
Decent pay & benefits, strong safety culture
Long hours, little to no support from area management.
Sales Coordinator&Construction Services Specialist (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – November 18, 2015
To stand up to my commitment a typical day can go by like I have been there just for 4 or 5 hours, have to answer the phone queue and action customers requests as I am completing other e-mail requests at the same time from sales reps and other customers. Learned new systems. Management needs more improvement. The hardest part of the job is no appreciation or motivation on what you work hard and complete in timely manner. The most enjoyable part of my job is the satisfaction of the customer when they end up in my line. Standing up to my commitment I gave the employer by completing my tasks in timely manners.
Revenue Management Centre Liaison (Former Employee) – Waterloo – September 28, 2015
WM always asked for the most you could give, and then a little bit more. It was hard. But the people I worked with were great so that balanced it all out. And the pay was pretty good. Really hard to move around the company though.

Major Account Manager (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – August 3, 2015
The thing I love about working at Waste Management is the people. I feel supported and appreciated by my manager and my team. I love working with customers and problem solving to find the right solution for their needs. I love to learn about the industry and how the changing dynamics of our business impacts our clients. Change is a constant at Waste Management and although I thrive on this change, I too am looking for a career change, in order to apply my skills and learn new things, after working 20 years successfully with this company.
