    A quote from a former Onsite Operations team member: “I would describe CompostNow's work culture as a pretty employee centered company, concerned and interested in the people that work for them. I think CompostNow puts a lot of effort into making people feel valued. The pay was very supportive as a living wage. The way that Managers make it clear that they always have time to hear what you want to say, it definitely goes down as one of the places that I’ve gotten to work at where the employer doesn’t just care about their bottom line, which was really nice."
