painter/welder (Former Employee), Dartmouth Nova Scotia – July 6, 2012
typical day of work started by cleaning out shop bay. then bringing bins in that needed welding and paint. i learned how to safely weld and do so at a productive pace. all my co-workers were very easy to get along with and made my job alot easier. the hardest part of my job was learning how to get in a routine at first to ensure my work was at 100% – more... but also to be very productive as well. i enjoyed every aspect of with waste management – less

Recycle Sorter-Labourer (Former Employee), Sarnia, ON – April 23, 2012
Pros: company was great, fast paced environment
Cons: location would get very hot in the summer.
Work at waste management was fun and very fast paced, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The team that I worked in was enjoyable and I developed a great relationship with my manager, since I was willing to do some work that other team members were reluctant to complete.
I enjoyed my time at Waste Management, but when the plant closed I had to relocate.
Roll-Off Driver (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OK – September 8, 2014
Pros: home time, home every night
Cons: to strict with the wm way of doing everything
the hardest part was conforming to the waste management way of doing things. It was a job, not much enjoyment on picking up trash. co-workers some were helpful and other were not typical job no matter were you work.
Flow Tester (Current Employee), Williston, ND – September 4, 2014
Pros: drive time paid, good benefits, treated me well
Cons: co-workers, no work
I worked in the Energy Service Department and it was a newer division. They didn't quite have everything together and didn't have enough work for their workers. Benefits were good and so was compensation. No complaints on Waste Management, they just needed more work.
Operations Specialist (Current Employee), Livermore, Ca. – September 3, 2014
Pros: friendly professional environment
Cons: it's a temporary position
I work in a fast paced company with a lot of paper trail. It's a well oiled machine and the people are great that I work with. The hardest part of the job is there really isn't as of yet. I'm up for new challenges so we'll see what's next. I look forward to it. The most enjoyable part of my job is that it still exists. Management is friendly and casual – more... but yet very professional. Dress is casual so that's fun too. – less
