WM (Formerly Waste Management)

Be as proud of your WM career as you are of your military service

The call of reveille is a sound that signals the beginning of a new day. It serves as a reminder of purpose and mission. While the bugle may not wake you when you return to your civilian life, at WM, you will find that sense of purpose and mission that is so familiar.

You will likely work with a fellow veteran at WM because one in twelve of our employees is former military. In fact, we hire a veteran every day of the year.

Our non-veteran employees have shown endless support for military heroes. Many in the WM community have spouses, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, parents and grandparents who have served, just like you.

We have over 1,000 facilities and most operate like a platoon. Each facility requires people with strong skills and leadership experience. This small unit mentality promotes creative and enterprising thinking – something familiar to you. WM currently has openings in the fields of:

  • Operations
  • Mechanic
  • Transportation
  • Human Resources
  • Information Technology

Our mission of environmental service may be different from the military. However, WM and the Military share many common traits; the most important being the drive to be the best.
