I worked at Safety-Kleen full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Safety-Kleen had some ups and downs in the past. However, with the addition of Bob Craycraft in the senior role, it became a new company. Gone were the "good ole boys" that were there from years of political savvy rather than work ethic. Kept, hired and promoted were with very few exceptions, hard working, forward thinking employees that have nothing but the best plans for the future of the company. I'm only a former employee because of retirement, otherwise, I would still be proud to be part of the SK family.

Cons

Don't work at SK if you don't want to be held accountable! Benefits could be improved, but that was quickly on an upward swing and comparable to most employers in the current economy.

    I have been working at Safety-Kleen full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is the opportunity to make good money. Excellent training programs, and concerned with safety of employees.

    Cons

    Sales, and management pay is based on the performance of the service crew. If they don't care to do the job you don't get paid. You can sell all day long, but if the service crew doesn't care you don't get paid

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't step over the dollar to pick up the dime!

    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.
