Roll-off Driver (Current Employee) –  North Charleston, SCJuly 5, 2018
I have enjoyed my time here. Good management and fair pay. As far as a waste removal company, I put them against any others out there. The hours are good and the schedule is hard to beat.

Poor Management
Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Wheeling, WVJuly 3, 2018
Very poor management. Talk down to you with no respect. Worked to death with little appreciation. You were made to feel guilty if you didn't work on your days off. Bad management caused us to work 65-70 hours per week. No family/work life. Safety was a big concern until it cost money. Brought many safety concerns and it went on deaf ear.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Poor Management

Avoid at all cost
N/A (Former Employee) –  Ft. Meyers, FLJuly 3, 2018
Worst management ever. Starts at the top, and goes all the way down. Both shifts have roughly 8-10 employees, and 20-30 temps. Every day at lunch, 2-10 temps walk out due to working conditions.

All workers are overworked and underpaid. There isn't a person there who would stay if they had another option.

Unsafe acts are the norm. Work in confined spaces is unregulated. Lock out tag out is only randomly enforced.

Plant is starting to fall apart due to lack of maintenance. Lots of downtime. When the plant goes down for repair, all employees are sent home. Sometimes maintenance personnel are sent home, too.
Pros
It's a job
Cons
Everything

Support Analyst (Corporate) (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJuly 3, 2018
This job is very tedious and paying attention to detail was very important. We occasionally had company events planned around certain events or holidays to break the long, very fast paced and tedious days.
Pros
Pay was okay. Free weekends were great.
Cons
Work was so focused that there wasn't alot of down time.

Very stressfull, constantly adding more work
Dispatch, Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Fairmont, WVJuly 2, 2018
Very stressful, constantly adding more work. Management will give you their work duties until you can't keep up. Policy states in their job description that management can add to you job duties if they feel there is a need.
Pros
lots of perks
Cons
Management hides in their offices and constantly pile more work on you.

OPERATIONS SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) –  Northern VirginiaJuly 2, 2018
Upper management can't be trusted as well as HR. Favoritism runs big here especially in Northern Virginia, if your not in the right group you mind as well quit.

If i can make it here..
Employee (Current Employee) –  Mobile, ALJune 28, 2018
Depending on your position in the ranks you will begin your day way before the sun comes up, Pray the maintenance team works on your truck the night before so you don't break down some time thru the day so you can get your route up and go home.
Pros
Day rate
Cons
no life outside this job

Things would be better if they paid more money by the hour . I feel that they really need to take the time out to listen to the drivers and what they’re legitimate complaints are
