Accountant (Former Employee), Pompano Beach, FL – September 16, 2014
Pros: benefits and coworkers
Cons: workload and lack of training
The terminology "being thrown to the wolves" comes to mind. WM is in a continual state of reorganization in which the employees that remain in their jobs get more and more work piled on them. It is expected that you will have to work nights and weekends to hit deadlines and there is little to no training. There is a distinct lack of organization and – more... management is virtually nonexistent. – less
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZ – September 15, 2014
Pros: close by
Cons: agents made too many mistakes
Co-workers were very into gossip. Hardest part of my job was taking calls other agents had messed up or had broken promises to the customer. Most enjoyable part was the supervisor's as they really looked after you.
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin – September 15, 2014
Everything about working at Wast Management was great, except management. We went through many different supervisors during a small period of time. Coworkers were great. You get used to getting up early and get your day going and coming home at a decent time.
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
