Waste Management Inc. Reviews

To start with, the obvious: The pay and benefits are decent compared to multiple other potential employers at entry level. The job stability is high, as you'll never hurt for opportunities to bring home a paycheck.

That said, the training is near non-existent. New hires are frequently thrown into the job with very little guidance in the administrative setting, including supervisors and managers who desperately need it most. The company not only does this, but often insists on pushing individuals into covering two separate jobs if they are promoted out of one, as the old position is never filled.

There are certainly worse employers to work for, but my time in management has turned me off to the company to a great degree. The support network just isn't there, yet they pile more and more responsibility on to eat into your person life. Typical corporate America.

Waste Management is a great place for growth. Working for operations and then for dispatch helped me understand how much effort managements puts into their employees to help them be better at what they do. Not only do the employees grow, but the company as well. There are many positions one can do in this great company. Trash will never stop, so work will always be work!
This is a great place to work and grow in the work place. Fortunately there is something for everyone! The company has so much to offer in terms of professional development and change. There are multiple opportunities to stand out and be a leader in your role at WM.
