    I worked at Shred-it International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Easy sale, decent pay, gas allowance, good commissions paid fast. The Hicksville office when I was there was such a tight knit bunch of guys that I wish I were still there. Everyone had each others back, no one poached, no back stabbing

    Cons

    Being a small branch there was no room to advancement which for someone looking to advance i wouldn't recommend but if being in sales long term is what your looking for then definitely a stable place to be

    I have been working at Shred-it International full-time

    Pros

    Quality benefits package, including 401k and education reimbursement. In principal, it is a good service with legitimate security benefits to the company's customer base.

    Cons

    Company is managed by holding investors, and every move is blatantly with the idea of packaging for a future sale. Key layers of management, corporate and branch support have been cut to save salary expense, meaning many employees are being asked to do more and get less in return. Attempts to integrate new technologies have fallen flat due to poor conversion and implementation. Ultimately, most employees are terribly dissatisfied with the recent direction of the company, and customer's are clearly seeing how little they are being valued through each transition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice would matter...it's extremely transparent that the company doesn't seek long-term viability. They are only seeking the best way to package and unload the assets to a willing buyer in the next year or two.
