Just a number.
CDL Driver (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDApril 11, 2018
If you are ready to become a number. No advancement from within. If you are not a union shop get ready to ready to be screwed. Loyalty to company is ignored. Stay away from Boise shop.

Well paid poor management
Class B CDL Driver (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDFebruary 12, 2018
I only went back here because they bought my company out the pay was very well but I believe it’s a very stressful work environment which to me causes unsafe work environment you are paid by can so you have to chase the cans in order to make money management among supervisors and operations mngr were poor to say the least they micro manage and it’s always the drivers fault the superviser I had seemed very happy when he got to write you up money benefits good driver turn around probably around 78% because of poor management

My day at Republic services
Roll-Off Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Revere, MADecember 9, 2017
You arrive early every day. your responsibilities include a pre inspection of your truck and equipment, also coordinating your route. during the day you can expect to encounter many customers, it is important to maintain a positive working relationship with all. then you drive your route safely and efficiently as possible. you must come into the day rested and focused. do your very best to be independent but ask for help if needed. co workers are good go to people when you need advise so a good working relationship is a must. Then at the end of the day post trip and any necessary must be completed and then see you tomorrow!! lol
Pros
all the ot you can handle
Cons
mandatory 60 hr per week

Don't bother with this place. Unless you need a few bucks to survive. Way better paying jobs for CDL driver then this.
CDL A Driver (Former Employee) –  MichiganSeptember 20, 2017
You get a quick callback and answer a few questions. If they like your voice, they will schedule you an in person interview. During that, they will send a random supervisor in to ask you several dumb "tell me about a time when..." type questions. If they like you, they will give you a tour of the building. If they don't, they will tell you someone will be in touch and let you leave.
Pros
Free smells and tastes
Cons
Favortism
