    I worked at Waste Management

    Pros

    WMAA (waste management association of Australia) Small organisation so able to get pretty hands on with projects. great opportunities for networking with association members.

    Cons

    Management was very unprofessional and bullied staff. Consistent public humiliation if the manager was not "in a good mood" so staff hesitant to ask questions. Very inefficient organisation. Organisational culture wasn't very supportive or positive.

    I worked at Waste Management part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The office was nice and my coworkers shared in my misery of the job even though they were full time workers.

    Cons

    not enough work and would spend the majority of my time there doing homework because they refused to train me to do different tasks. The managers would also micro manage tasks and duties all day. Even though they would only give us about 2 hours of work for an 8 hour day.
