Waste Management is a great place to work
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Coquitlam13 June 2013
At Waste Management, your hours are somewhat flexable. Customer needs are always at the top of my priorty list. The hardest part of my job was not being able to meet my customers needs, due to services we could not provide. I made good friends at Waste Management. A great place to work and grow.
Cons
Long hours

Pathetic
Route Manager, Brampton (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON2 March 2015
Destroys your life and mood. Leadership there is pathetic and has the mindset of accepting failure and generally being a bunch of jerks. I recommend this to someone if they would like to destroy their life.
Pros
Free Gasoline
Cons
Everything except the free gasoline

Very disrespectful place to work
Recycle Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  West Hants20 January 2014
Decent pay and benifits but emploees are treated very poor.On a daily basis you are bullied,put down and accused of things before there is any proof.Management i feel get off on suspending and firing employees no matter what the outcome.Would never recommend Waste Management to my worse enemy.

The Best of the Waste
Contractor/Data Entry Admin Assistant (Former Employee) –  Waterloo, ON12 December 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.

na (Current Employee) –  Western Canada15 July 2014
Entery level managers make a lot of the day to day decisions. It is a fast paced work environment with little room for errors or delayed decision making. Communications between departments is usually fair to good but never great.
