"I've worked at WM for 5 yrs and it's a great company. It's a company that is very stable but it holds their drivers accountable for everything. The pay is great but drivers are very stressed out on a daily basis. They work every holiday but Christmas. Miami branch is the worst to work from."

"While I enjoyed working at Waste Management, I feel this company is in downward spiral. Yearly raises have been suspended for the last five years, and all the CSR locations have been closed and consolidated to a single building in Houston, TX."

"I worked in the electronic recycling division of Waste Management. I ran my own facility; all aspects of that facility. However, I had to forecast my budgets, watch my EBIT and P & L's. I enjoyed the work immensely. Unfortunately laws don't exist in Oklahoma regarding electronics disposal."

"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."

"Waste Management is great company and excellent steward of the environment. I believe they place extensive value on their customers and are trying to find ways to place the same on their employees. The IT staff is fairly large and not as well established from a standards and process. Overall, a good place to work for most."

Senior Pricing Manager

"I have worked for WM since 2004 and continue to be impressed by the quality and range of its service offerings; its people; its passion; and its versatility. The company employs over 50,000 employees covering the US and Canada. It is North America's largest, greenest, waste solutions company. It is an excellent place to work and provides lots of opportunity to learn and grow within the organization. A bit of a steep learning curve, particularly when it comes to the competitors, both large and small local operations."
