    I have been working at Waste Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great stock benefits and 401k. The people who work at WM are generally good people who are easy to work with and talk to. WM has a way of weeding out the bad apples (bullies, cheats, etc). There is good job stability if you show up and do your job to the best of your abilities.

    Cons

    The goals of different departments are often at odds with each other, which creates friction. Heavy workload.

    Commercial Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Waste Management (Atlanta, GA (US)) in May 2011.

    Interview

    First talked to a recruiter on the phone, then in person interview with two managers, asked about previous sales experience. It was a conversation about sales techniques and my own questions about the corporate culture and upward mobility. Not a tough interview at all.
