A day on the field
Spotter (Current Employee), Irwindale, CANovember 12, 2014
Pros: good hours, decent pay, great crew
Cons: weather (heat) dehydration
Every morning would start off with a cool breeze, at a steady pace. but sure enough the sun would be blazing and the bottom dumbs super tens and semis would come pouring in ready to fill that lot. I loved that job! the money was decent the hours never seemed to long and my co-workers definitely made work feel like a home away from home. I learned a – more... lot about different materials such as asphalt marble, tile, glass. How they can effect us just by standing next to itfor a few moments let alone what it could do out in our community, – less

not a promising employer
Setup Agent I (Current Employee), Phoenix ArizonaNovember 9, 2014
Pros: weekly pay, two 15 minute breaks and 1hour lunch
Cons: big talk about how much they care about employees prior to hiring, then turnover rate of employees resigning about 80%, not enough pay
Typical data entry job, leadership could use more managing skills, not enough employee recognition, lack of company involvement with employee satisfaction compared to customer satisfaction

Unpredictable work day with little to no support from management
Senior Welder and Tech (Current Employee), Henderson, CONovember 6, 2014
Cons: rarely have breaks throughout the day.
Daily job began at 7:00am with a small briefing. Tickets for repair work to be completed on malfunctioning compactors put into order of importance and need. I am the only field hydraulic repair man and my day is very long. My day should end at 3:30 but I have never finished a day on time. My day usually ends at 6:00. The hardest part about my day is – more... the lack of support and communication between the home office, dispatch, customers, and field tech. – less

The worst place I have ever worked
Welder/maintenance (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKOctober 28, 2014
A very immature managerial staff. Safety not a priority or quality control for customer satisfaction. Advancement only obtained through personal relationships and not considered from qualifications or experience.

Hired as a Class A Truck Driver but you will NOT drive a Truck!
CDL Class A Truck Driver (Current Employee), Seattle, WA.October 28, 2014
Cons: you will not be a cdl class a truck driver!!!
I was hired as a CDL Class A Truck driver but I did NOT drive a Truck pulling a 53' trailer. Instead they were NOT honest in telling me I was hired as a Labor worker! And 100% back breaking labor work with the supervisor always screaming at you telling you what to do every second of each and every hour that you work. This place was not honest and you – more... will not get trained working with human blood and human waste, drug vials, syringes, needles all contaminated. Also contaminated biopsy materials, tissues and anatomical parts that emanate from surgery. You will be working with animal and human body parts with pathogenic microorgarisms infectious to humans. You will also be working and handle waste to include teeth, human corpses remains. All while YOU WILL NOT BE TRAINED and you'll be forced to work as a Labor worker NOT a CDL Class A Truck Driver that I and you will be hired for at your Waste Management Interview! And if you complain to your supervisor you WILL get a notice NOT to show up for work for at least 2 days with out pay! This company is NOT fair I would think twice before wasting your time coming to apply for a job and after your job interview if they like you and offer you a Truck Driving job you'll have to wait at least 2 months for a complete back ground check as well as you have to have good credit to work here and trust me they WILL check your credit. The Waste Management DOT physical is one of the MOST hardest to do and pass. You BETTER be in GOOD physical shape to pass Waste Management Physical Test at there Doctor! This physical test is NO JOKE!! If you have ever been in the US Marine Corp boot camp the DOT Waste Management Physical is 100,000% the very same, it's no joke you BETTER be in awesome physical shape to pass! Just beware you will be hired as a CDL Class A Truck driver BUT you WILL NOT be a Truck driver you WILL instead be a Labor worker and you will strictly work 8 hours ONLY and NO OVERTIME! Please read this again it's NO Joke! And yes this is Waste Management Seattle, WA. Location! Remember if you complain about anything you will be told not to show up for work for 2 days with NO pay! And then you will be looking for another job because they are going to make you want to leave and never come back! Warning please save yourself some time and don't come to this company unless you want to be lied to and you want to work as a pure Labor worker because you will NOT be a CDL Class A Truck driver even though that's what they hired you for at the job interview and telephone interview when HR call you! – less

Very productive workplace with friendly atmosphere.
A/R Specialist Sr. (Former Employee), Downers Grove, ILOctober 24, 2014
Pros: very responsive management.
Cons: lunch period could have used another another 10 minutes of time.
My time at WM was a very good learning experience where I learned to grow and continue my education in a professional business environment. Assignments were challenging, and the hours could stretch into the evening hours, but at the end of the week all issues were resolved and I would leave knowing that my efforts were worth their time.
