Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Hudson, FL – June 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.
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
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 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.
Stressful, not compensated the same for vacation, too demanding
Dispatcher (Frontload) (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LAF – May 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,

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.

Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 27, 2017
start at 6 am. Check with early drivers, make sure all routes are covered. Request tomorrow auto schedule hauls. Start on review yesterdays route, make sure everything was serviced. Start on payroll. Dispatch same day service when sales or customer service sales that way. Check on hours worked per driver. Close route sheets in computer. Driver check in as they finish their route and come to yard. Make sure DVR is filled out properly
working in the trash business is hard work & long hrs anywhere but this is the better of the company's out there. there big so they can offer decent pay & benefits yet they don,t micromanage to the extent of the other big trash company,s.
Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Commerce City, CO – September 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.
Dispatcher (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – August 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.
