    Pros

    Benefits, Personal Growth, Opportunity for advancement, opportunity to learn, The pay is wonderful! Over the years that I have been with HCC, I have learned many things. I was a kid without a future before this company, and in a short time I have become VERY successful. It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears, but if it weren't for Crystal Clean, I don't know where I would be today. THANK YOU!

    Cons

    Hours, vacation time, stress levels. In my position it feels almost impossible to find the time for a vacation. The company offers the paid vacation, but with the way things are growing, I can't find the time to use it. And if you don't use it, you lose it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel this company could grow more efficiently if branches were not put under such stress and elevated goals. But it seems to be working, so what can I say? Crystal Clean is quickly climbing the ranks as the fastest growing parts cleaner, used oil and drum waste business in the country. I am proud to call this my Career!

    Pros

    Great opportunity to make your own paycheck. Proper training, safety conscience. There are some great people within the company but they know they can not push too hard or say anything wrong.

    Cons

    Everyone top to bottom out to take your position, can not trust anyone. Very long hours that don't equal the pay. Regional Managers hound from their position down and expect the same from their managers onto reps. What have you done for me lately mentality. Will "find" a way to fire someone if need to. They preach ethics but when it comes down to it, very UN ETHICAL, funny how money changes "ethics". Very high stress and pressure placed on all employees at branch level all day every day. If anyone tells you different it's RM or Above preaching for others and looking for glory. Slowly turning into SK month by month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none to give, they wouldn't listen anyway.

    Pros

    Hcci gives you the ability to go as far as you want. People would be shocked at the income potential that this company provides its employees.

    Cons

    Hcci is in a highly competitive market that requires long days and hours. If you are a 9-5 person this career is not for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay in tune with field.

    Pros

    Generally good commission structure. Good equipment and excellent benefits. Good opportunities to move around the company. A few industry leading products.

    Cons

    13-16 hour days. No support from middle management and above. Everything falls on the Branch Manager. Severe disconnect between corporate and field personnel. Branches are under staffed. Pricing is not competitive. Company places unrealistic expectations on field personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire key branch support personnel such as admin and warehouse people. Lead and train instead of tearing down. Stop running everything on a shoe string budget.

    Pros

    If you need a job, they can generally provide one, they have many branches around the country, and hire people.

    Cons

    Hard work, not the greatest pay. It demands a fast work pace, so you make more money, which can lead to unsafe work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay me more money, because this job is killing my body. Also get a new branch, because the current branch is terrible.
