Pros

Good people in the branch. Good Benefits.

Cons

Never has a company sttod in the way of its own success as Safety-Kleen does. They have no idea what true sales is about nor do they act like they want to. If you own a home, good luck working here. You have no idea what you will make year to year because they come out with a different pay plan every year. Morale has sunk since 2003 and from what I am told is no better today.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Wake up and look around at the leadership in your Areas. Atlanta used to be a proud Area and now due to the loss of quality people flounders with its leadership. The problem is there are other Areas with the same problem and no focus from Corporate.

    Pros

    Positive environment, casual dress code, supportive staff are just some of the reasons I enjoyed working at Safety Kleen. Generous gift card rewards for frequent contests, and great benefits, days off allowed life work balance.

    Cons

    My only complaints was that there was a ceiling on the commissions I could earn, and although I received a nice severence package, the sudden release of 150+ of us, was a big shock.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don.t hire a call center staff without planning the what, ifs.

    Former Employee - Market Sales Specialist in Baltimore, MD

    I worked at Safety-Kleen full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    For the most part, I worked with excellent people. But like any workplace there is some backstabbing and grandstanding. This is a dynamic fast paced company, everyday is busy, challenging, and mostly fun.

    Cons

    New employees received training from very qualified trainers. Once that initial training was completed further development was the responsibility of the sales manager. This development was non-existent, the sales manager I worked for was more interested in showcasing his own talents outside of his own area of responsibility in order to get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice, but just ensure workforce is not a victim of someone's unbridled ambition.
