    Hey guys and gals, Im new here and my name is Russ. Im looking to gather some more information about working as a CDL drvier for Waste Management here in Florida near the Orlando area. I recently applied and have a phone interview next week. Does anybody have experience working at Waste Management or in the one in Oralndo area? How much do they pay?(I applied for the CDL Driver residential). What EXACTLY does the CDL Driver residential do? How are the benefits and how much do I pay into them(no family just me)? Thank you!

    Residential is probably automated side loader I interviewed for a job with them in Arizona in 2013 or 14 and thats what it was.
    Benifits seemed pretty decent if I remember right they had really great health insurance
    Try Glassdoor i don’t know about Florida but I think they start around $18-19per hour but they were getting 55-60 hours a week around here enjoy that rear facing camara

    Can't have any thing to drink or eat in the cab as well as the driver facing cameras.

    $18-$19/hr is not bad if that is the case here in Florida. Not sure how reliable Glassdoor is but the website was telling me that in the Orlando area they make $19/hr as a driver. Not sure if I'd want to do residential driver or roll off driver.

    Roll off all the way. Better trucks more space, ect.. no neck ache or motion sickness from watching a mirror all day with the herky jerk of the arm...

    I've never driven a roll off,I have a class B with experience driving fire engines,buses and straight truck refers. how hard is it to learn roll off for someone who has never done it before?

    I worked for WM for 11 years in roll-off.

    I'll say this. They have pretty good pay scale & excellent benefits. The trick is staying employed with them. They have high.... let me say that again... h-i-g-h turn over rate in residential & a fairly high turn over rate in other positions.

    Let me ask you to pay attention to the employment ads, most anywhere you want to look. WM runs ads daily... let me say that again.. d-a-i-l-y. There is a reason for that.

    Heed my warning. Its virtually impossible to keep a job with WM.
