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.
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – September 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.
reasonable health insurance. retirement
long hours. need enough employees to do the job properly.
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – March 19, 2018
Upper management sucks. They have no time for you. Tell you to do something one way today and another way tomorrow. Equipment sucks trucks are not safe to be on road but are forced to put them on road anyway. DOT should shut this place down.
Never trust anyone at this company will look you straight in face and lie to you.
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.
After being a driver and a supervisor, even though I was hired to be a supervisor, I asked about the bonus and was told I had yet to do anything exceptional. Myself and another supervisor carried the extra workload during the summer, violating company policy. Operations Manager would not hire appropriate number of drivers to cover the extra work. Then I was told I was not performing my supervisory reports adequately on the days I was stuck in a truck.
Very poor management, complaints and suggestions ignored.
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – December 21, 2017
I was an operations supervisor which is pretty much the same task wherever you work. Basically I was an adult day care worker who had to motivate employees to do some of the most basic task known to mankind.
The pay was excellent and there is opportunity to move up.
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.
The most dysfunctional work environment you will ever work in.
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) – Sun Valley, CA – November 20, 2017
If you want to be miserable, sad, unhappy, stressed, unfulfilled...then this is the company for you. One of my colleagues said last week...coming into work is a traumatic experience. Please save yourself the headache and steer clear of this company.
E&P OPS Supervisor-Hauling Department (Current Employee) – Odessa, TX – November 7, 2017
The Company preaches one thing but practices something else. Upper managent is only worried about P/L and does not engage their direct reports. The company is a recent new comer to E&P and is finding out that the oilfield is a different animal than residential waste as it tries to apply its policies and practices to the oil and gas industry.

Great company if an applicant is looking for challenges and the opportunity to learn various LOB (Line of Business). I have been given the opportunity to learn multiple lines of business which lead to advancement and personal growth.
