Change in management hard to follow.
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, KSSeptember 2, 2018
New management has been put into place. The management above has threatened the lower managements jobs. They are creating a culture of structure. The company is trying to standardize it self across the nation. The hardest part of the job is trying to get enough information on what the new directive is. Communication is lacking with the new plans that are rolled out. I like the employees that I work with.
Pros
reasonable health insurance. retirement
Cons
long hours. need enough employees to do the job properly.

Challenging job but alot of room for improvement
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Hartford, CTFebruary 24, 2018
Company went without much management for a while but its now coming together. Every day is a different challenge but when i go hone i feel like I have earned my paycheck. Dealing with temp agencies and people from all backgrounds makes it even more difficult but as stated earlier- you feel alot better once you start seeing the positive changes you are helping to bring.
Pros
medical, 401k, room to grow
Cons
Bad turn around

Better Leadership is needed
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXSeptember 6, 2018
Each location is dynamic and has it's own culture. However, when implementing different policies and procedures, the Leaders don't do well with the "Sniff Test". Many don't fly low enough to find out the impact it will have on employees before implementing. Change is inevitable and will happen, but your most important component in any organization is your people. You have to understand some of the negative aspects some of the change will have and attempt to eliminate as many issues as you can before they arise.
Republic doesn't do that, then questions why turnover in certain markets is so high.
Communication is key and "we" do a poor job of communicating change effectively.
Pros
Pretty Stable
Cons
Too many outside hires who don't last

Fast paced environment.
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Covington, KYAugust 28, 2017
A normal day was at least 10 hours with a Saturday involved every 5 weeks. The environment allowed for additional knowledge but generally not through training. The Senior management was professional but I had three bosses in 2.5 years. The hardest part of the job was receiving phone calls and e mails well after the end of the normal work day. As an example, as the Commercial Operations Supervisor the day began at 12:30AM and usually ended around 11:00AM. But Customer Service works until 5:00PM so there were always calls and e mails that usually required going back to work to resolve a Customer Service site visit. But the Customer's always come first, regardless.
Pros
Great Benefits.
Cons
Lone work weeks.

Fundamental Flaws
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Great Lakes, ILSeptember 24, 2017
If you ever have a day that you work less than 10 hours expect to hear "Are you leaving early?" from someone.

Safety is just a signature on a roster.

Equipment is awful, so many downed trucks

Very high turnover

Funny, management says they understand what's going on and tell everyone that we are $1 million+ ahead of budget and can't see how upset all the workers are since their wages have been dropping all year.
Pros
Good Pay & Benefits
Cons
It's just a glorified sweatshop

Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Joliet, ILApril 29, 2017
Allied Waste was part of a merger with Republic Services, Inc. The company overall is a great place to work if you are seeking benefits and advancements in specialized fields. However, having the ability to exposed yourself to various aspects and/or areas of the business would be beneficial as far as creating self value to the company and creating potential opportunities.The culture is highly focused on safety and a positive customer experience that differentiates the company from competitors.

Republic Services has the ability and potential to be the leading industry provider of recycling and waste needs as long as the company maintains a workforce that is highly motivated and focused on the company's objectives and goals.

In a nutshell, if you are seeking a career that is challenging and at the same time rewarding, Republic Services is a great company to work for and allows individuals to showcase their skills and talents that would be the key to the company's success.

Great company, bad local managment
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Stillwater, OKSeptember 12, 2017
Nationally the company is a great place to work. Locally the management team has changed and the culture has change with it. There is more of a "every man for themselves" attitude and the team concept is no longer in place. There is a lack of mentoring and personal growth.
Pros
Safety lunches, great benefits
Cons
Managment not interested in mentoring

Drivers make more than supervisors

Don't get comfortable
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.

Served as a job, not a career growth path
Trucking Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Odessa, TXSeptember 28, 2016
Company had fair compensation and good benefits. That's about all of the good I have to say. Things constantly changing for no apparent reason and then changing right back the way they were before. As a manager/supervisor you get no backup on holding employees to their job. Employees constantly destroying equipment and no recourse taken.

Management plays favorites, major ego issues in management. If you're not part of the in group you will not even be talked to. Management does not engage those below them. You will be lucky to talk to the person you report to once a week.

Overall just surprisingly unorganized for a Fortune 500 company.
Pros
Pto, benefits
Cons
Management, lack of structure, continuity non existent

Cut throat environment with a lot of turn over
OPERATIONS SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHJuly 18, 2017
Every day was hectic and Management turn over provided an unstable environment. This turned into an every man for himself atmosphere. Stability and lower compensation made the division a very hard place to work.
Pros
Driver workforce was very enjoyable to work with.
Cons
Cut throat

Great compensation
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 17, 2012
Republic offers great compensation. The work/life balance is more work than life. The co-workers are great to work with which lessens the blow of the out of balance of the work/life. Hardest thing right now with Republic is the changes. The culture is being change. Sometimes the direction is a little unclear. Enjoy working with Republic because of the challenges that management gives you to accomplish and overcome.
Pros

Great place to work and advance in a career. If you work hard and show up for work every day with the intent to do your best. If you have a positive attitude with management and your team. You can go far at this company.
