Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Chula Vista, CAAugust 1, 2018
Management here is atrocious. Hours cut and increased workload made it extremely stressful. No one works together which just caused problems for all in operations.

Felt harassed by one supervisor and GM in training. HR did nothing when I brought these issues to them.
Pros
None
Cons
Mangement.

Close to home and a great Manager.
Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Hudson, FLJune 22, 2018
The job was great working with truck drivers, doing data entry, troubleshooting problems, maintaining records and DOT logs. The position taught me patience, you have to have patience when dealing with people. The hardest part of the job was staying to all hours of the night for the last truck and the most enjoyable part was the data entry, loved to do that.
Pros
Close to home, loved my Manager, did so many different tasks you never got sick of any one of them, the manager was always buying lunch
Cons
No breaks, just a lunch if you were lucky, supervisor that did not like me and cause me all sorts of problems, too long of hours

Long Hours, Stressful
Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Greenville, SCMay 29, 2018
Long Hours and high stress job. Low moral at our division. Very demanding. Not much supporting help. Nobody to fill in when you take time off. You felt as if you could not leave early or take time off because the job would not get done.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Stressful, not compensated the same for vacation, too demanding

Productive Work Place
Dispatcher (Frontload) (Former Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAFMay 9, 2018
A typical day at Republic Service was making sure all routes are covered and all containers were dumped. I learned the true mean of team work. The culture of the work place was very pleasant. The hardest part of the job were co-workers causing conflict. The most enjoy part of the job was the team-work Front load driver shared with each other,

An interesting place to work
Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Greensboro, NCApril 14, 2018
Fast paced work but not enough help to do the job at hand.Often asked to work more and more and no incentive to do so.Management knows the problems but refuse to correct them and thus you are left in a hole that you can't get out of.
Pros
A job
Cons
No help and bad equipment

Overall, great company. Poor Management
Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Commerce City, COSeptember 18, 2017
Managers have no accountability. As soon as they are unable to delegate things to you, you have no value to them. Item's which employee's are concerned about are often overlooked, and even mocked. Human Resources is also very little help, often defending management and patronizing employees.
Pros
Lots of food all of the time
Cons

Bad Management
Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLAugust 27, 2017
Expect to have no life!
Bad Management not understanding the demands of operations.
Need more employees to get the job done and nobody should
ever work so so so late for a garbage company. Trucks break down all day every day. Not enough Supervisors, Dispatchers or Drivers or Trucks.
Management is very weak.
Pros
None
Cons
Poor Management with no guts
