This is more of an Ex Employee complaint to ALERT any potential new employees to NOT experience what I did and allow the consumers to know how Waste Management treat their employers.
Currently working part time and seeking employment I applied for the Scale House Clerk Position in my home town and accepted the position through a tempary agency.
After 2.5 months of temp position I was place on F/T as WM employee with a 3.00 hourly increase (pay adjustment). During the time of training the Logistics Operator (SR. Scale Hous Clerk) would stay with me in the scale house for any questions or issues I had until she felt I was able to work alone.
She was a few feet away for any questions I had which would arise. During training we were able to take a break and have our 30 minute lunch. Once I became full time WM employee I would not get a break from the window until I was about to burst (potty break).
When I did ask for a break after 2 or 3 hours I felt that I was imposing. I felt that I was being worked like a slave with out a break. Standing long periods of time with constant diesel fuel exposure and not having a break sometime up to 6.5 hours was causing me to have panic attacks per my physcian.
I brought this up to the "boss" several times and spoke to the project manager about this.
After HR came from the corporate office in Houston I was let go because they could not accomodate my work condition. My work condition was causing me to silently cry in random times, nausua, hand sweats, shaking and the sence of wanting to flee.
In Texas, it is n "FIRE AT WILL" State.
It is not against the law to work up to 6 hours without a break in Texas.
These are the facts,
If you work for this company you will work long hours even as a laborer in the Texas weather, and a driver just google waste management and read the employees and ex employees complaints.
This company does not take "SAFETY FIRST" OR VALUE THEIR EMPLOYEES WELL BEING.
Research the company for any reviews before applying.
I was obviosly not the right fit.
also, call waste management corp in Houston, Tx and let them know the Logistics Operator. at the WILCO Landfill is not charging her husband the CORRECT FEE each time he goes to the landfill WHICH IS STEALING. I dont think the Auditors at Williamson County is going to like this.
