    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Waste Management (El Paso, TX (US)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Straight forward - Submit resume, pass phone screening, followed by an in person interview. Its not the quickest process, generally about one week break between each step. I would apply to another position if the opportunity presented itself.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Waste Management (Waters, MI (US)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed four different times at three different locations over a period of six months! The farthest location I traveled was four hours from my home. Ultimately they decided to hire within! This was a nightmare. Huge waste of several hours of my time and money.

    Application

    The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Waste Management in March 2012.

    Interview

    This has to be the worst experience ever. I was originally contacted in October and had the following: 1 phone interview, HR interview, District Manager interview, Director of Operations Interview, and then another Route Manager interview all over the course of 6 months for 1 position! After all that you think I would be given courtesy on whether or not I got the job, but I was suppose to hear back 2 weeks ago and nothing yet so Im assuming a no go.. I will never apply nor recommend them to anyone.

    Interview

    I received a call from a screener in California who reviewed my previous job history and really dug in to see if I had the exact experience they were looking for. She said she would forward my app to the hiring team. About a week later, I rceived a call from an admin asst. for the hiring team to schedule another phone interview. A week after that I was scheduled for an in-person interview. The rest is history...

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Waste Management (Charlotte, NC (US)) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I was recruited by head hunter. Interviewed by GM and Market Area Rep .for 6 hours. Sometime one at a time, sometimes they tag-teamed against me. The intent was to see how I reacted under stress.

    Interview Questions

    • The difficulty lies in the fact that the interview went on so long and was stressfull. They were looking to see if I could handle the stress and being overwhelmed by their demands   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Yes I was able to negotiate and we agreed on my wages and benefits.. Then at the last minute, they changed everything knowing I had already put in my notice.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Waste Management (Columbus, OH (US)) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Interview process moves very slowly. Standard "canned" questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing out of the ordinary. Very situational, behavioral in nature.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation. Pretty standard to come in at lower part of pay band.
