Waste Management experience report

  • 09.Apr 2018
  • Employee

If you like your tools, avoid them

2.06

Company Culture

Have their favorites and push out people they don’t like, regardless of work ethic

Support from management

Only if they like you

Teamwork

They boast teamwork but day and night shift fight and blame each other. Driver and mechanics do the same to each other

Freedom to work independently

Not even Mobile mechanics have that

Internal Communication

Unless they are smashing another employee or blaming others, there is none

Gender Equality

They’ll hire you, but you won’t stay unless you tolerate abuse

Attitude towards older colleagues

Everyone feels they are better than the other but will be nice to your face

Career Development

They provide training but extensive or particular is reserved for those they like

Overall compensation for your work

It was good compensation for what they put you through but no money should be offered in exhange for abuse

Office / Work Environment

Not enough tools, special tools or equipment and the cleaning responsibilities are only set in stone for those they don’t like

Environmental Friendliness

Some are friendly to your face but you have a few knives in your back daily

Work-Life Balance

Insane hours and zero sympathy for the physical, emotional and family toll

Company Image

They have a great image and keep their trucks the same color

Job Security

Only as long as they like you

Handicapped Accessibility

Main office is upstairs and front main entry is ALWAYS locked with no sign indicating where to go. They enjoy watching people through the glass get confused.

Workplace Safety

Only when the main bosses come around

Challenging Work

It will kill you...

Inclusive / Diverse

They even have people that can’t read or speak any English...

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get new management immediately and a new parts guy STAT
