When I was employed at wasteco
Very low wages, 65-70 hrs a week, old trucks, bad management, benefits are not very good . Time and a half paid after 44 hours. At that wage you can’t make much money!! And also I would say that their safety standards are very low ! Management has no respect for their employees, as long as the work they have gets done!

Place is pathetic
Poorly run very cheap lies short cuts all about management not employees. Owners care more about their own wallet then yours. Service to customers needs more attention! Always making excuses as to why bins are not dumped very poor skills all the way around. Drivers do not care benefits suck!

Fair
I worked at Wasteco for 9 years, and I would definitely return! The company treated us fairly. Plenty of hours to make extra pay. Equipment was well maintained, even though some of the equipment was older. Great experience!!

Management is horrible have had multiple operation /dispatch managers hired & fired or quit within the last 2yrs .
I would not recommend working for this company .Management does not care about their employees and their equipment is substandard and not safe for the road.

Below Average

Forget about moving up ,Salaries and work will remain the same no matter how hard you work you are not going to be promoted.
Pros
Respectful Coworkers, Enough Breaks
Cons
Long hours, Bad management, Low Pay, Bad Environment

Great co workers Horrible managment system
Disrespectful managment dont keep promises , expect you to work and quit to hire more workers for cheaper. if you want a job with hours this is the job for you if you want a raise , 25 cents a year and nothing more.
Pros
free lunches, get to see alot of the city
Cons
poor pay, disrespectful managment

good coworkers,management needs guidance.
the guys on the road are a good bunch of guys, the leadership though at times is out of touch. Often the company expects all employees to put in 12 hour shifts.
Pros
on the road interacting with customers
Cons
old company vehicles
