Former Employee - Technical in South San Francisco, CA

I worked at Clean Harbors full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great benefits always enough work to keep you busy.

Cons

No upward mobility when giving ideas for improvement. Management would rather do things the same way and push you to the edge. One day you feel like you are doing a great job the next and the next you feel like you are doing a bad job. All the while, you feel confused while management collects the bonuses from your work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your employees have figured your abusive management tactics out. Every time you try to intimidate, know that your pockets may get a little emptier.
