Needs more competitive pay
RESIDENTIAL DRIVER (Current Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLOctober 7, 2018
Good company to work for with Class B pay, would not recommend someone with Class A license to work for company as it only requires Class B. Great job for younger person with minimal bills.
Pros
weekly pay
Cons
non competitive pay

It is a steady job
RESIDENTIAL DRIVER (Current Employee) –  Manistee, MI 49660September 25, 2018
There will always be trash. Once on the road you are on your own which is not bad. But communication is challenging. The weather is is stressful in winter and the trucks don't handle well There are always 5 day work weeks even with holidays it is made up on the following Saturday.

Too much favoritism and a very stressful environment
DRIVER (Current Employee) –  Mt. Laurel, NJSeptember 10, 2018
Management sucks and unless your cool with many supervisors you will be on their get him outta here list.. Too many hours a week due to routes being cut. They dont care about you or your family. I have little kids and I cant make it to any after school activities because of the long hrs
Pros

Cons
Your just a number there and when your time is up its up.

Not for everyone
Driver (Current Employee) –  Marshall, MISeptember 9, 2018
MOST of the management and co-workers are friendly and are willing to help you if you need it. The pay is reasonable for the job if you have work to do for the day. If you dont have work in your route for the day you will be expected to run a truck that isn't roadworthy and get stuck doing whatever nobody else wants to do and if you don't want to do that they will let you go home but they will take your personal and vacation time for doing so. It's not the worst place I've worked but certainly not the best either. If your for the worker more than the corporation you probably wouldn't enjoy working here.
Pros
1/2hr lunch and you are able to run your route in a sequence that works for you.
Cons
Way to much paperwork, supervision has favorites and shows it, maintenance and truck repair is bare minimal, a few trucks that need to be put out of commission, #'s are looked at more than route complications and facts.

Run
Driver (Former Employee) –  MIAugust 31, 2018
Run away as fast as you can, management is absolutely terrible, they like to tell you want you want to hear, no consideration on ideas to make it better, zero incentive to work hard, reward you with more work after your route is done.
Pros
Nothing

could be better
Driver (Current Employee) –  Arlington, TXAugust 29, 2018
fast paced, get the job done, hurry up but slow down...

management could be better.

for a place that stressed safety and following the rules is a must, they talked the talk but rarely enforced.

you write your truck up for repair and it might get fixed...but 90% of the time someone just signs off as 'safe to operate' and they never touch it.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
lazy shop, lackluster management

Typical driver
Residential Driver (Current Employee) –  MOJuly 19, 2018
Republic Service is a place that has potential to be great, there are so many managers that haven't officially received the title, that so many different messages relayed. Safety is obviously not the first priority to the company.

interesting days
Driver (Current Employee) –  York, PAJuly 13, 2018
Days are a little stressful. Never know if people will show up to do their jobs. Trucks are of questionable reliability;.Truck issues seem to be the most pressing problem. Often loaders are overworked and stressed. Routes are little too large for one man loaders.

Good place to work
Driver (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDJune 26, 2018
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

It is a hour drive to work. and someitmes our trucks break down cant control that.
