"I’ve worked for WM for 2 years as a gas Technician. The job and the people are absolutely awesome. I had a good relationship with my boss however the workload to pay was not balanced. Everyone makes more money than you do and you are constantly busting yours but. Good stepping stone job to get experienced though"

"If you are thinking about going to this site, you’ll work 12-14 hours per day, have endless hours of paper work to do and have lots of tedious time demands. Doing this job requires constant engagement and you have to be involved from start to finish. That’s about as factual as I can be. But now, for my opinion. You will be incredibly under paid for those hours since you are on salary. Their organizational plan depends on manager attrition because the workforce is more likely to do favors for new people. The majority of your fellow managers will cheat to look like they win. Expect them to look to you to falsify documents. Only a handful of managers make it past a year. About 1/10. If you have a big ego, you might survive. But you’ll have to tolerate your vacations being cancelled. I think they are about 30 years behind the rest of civilized business at this site. I’d like to say better things, but there’s a lot of change needed there"

"Stay away from WM, this company is nothing but greedy. There is no opportunity for advancement here. Do not waste your time. Life is too short to waste it on this dump.The smaller sites are running 10 to 14 year old trucks that have up to one million miles on them and should not be considered safe. On top of that they are rusted out and full of holes. You freeze in the winter and are told to just work harder."
