    Exhausting

    I worked at Steritech full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is some flexibility in scheduling, and the benefits are ok. Not a terrible gig for a little while as you can travel and see new places (out your car window).

    Cons

    There is no work/life balance. You are expected to work weekends and are not appreciated for your hard work. Management micro-manages and has no sympathy for those that have larger territories and have much more road time than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your specialists what they are worth. They are the face of your company and they are over-worked and under-paid. Appreciate all the hard work they do and the home-life sacrifices that they make.

    I have been working at Steritech full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Culture and leadership. The mission, values and leadership agenda are lived by all.
    Growth focused.
    Autonomy.

    Cons

    Adjustment to lack of infrastructure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Literally anything I would say here is redundant. Steritech leadership not only welcomes, they encourage open, effective dialog.

    Great when I first started. Slowly got worse in the last couple of years.

    I have been working at Steritech

    Pros

    The pros of this company are quickly dwindleing. Used to be a flexible schedule and good benefits.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Always on call. Expected to work all kinds of hours and very seldom see the commission or correct productivity payment. Havent seen a raise in four years. No cancellation bonus in the last 2 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch out there are companies paying better money and giving better service than we are

    Pros

    if I have to pick one, I guess it would be the benefits. But they are not any better than other corporations of this size.

    Cons

    Completely misled during interview. Unrealistic expectations, micro managed to death, extremely stressful, high turnover, long hours, low pay,and on and on and on!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to wake up, you are killing off very good employees!

    I worked at Steritech full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    able to work on my schedule-this is not even 100% of the time although that is what they will tell you in the interview process

    Cons

    I am not sure if there is enough space to answer this effectively. constant micro-managing, work-life balance sucked. If you gave them an inch then they expected a mile. Support was problematic since managers are in charge of large geographies. Unless you are in a popular cliché, the advancement opportunities are not there. The company used to be about quality service, but now it is all about profitability. Regional managers lack empathy. Corporate office in unyielding about how much more they expect out of people. There is a real mentality that if someone is unwilling or unable to do a particular part of the job, they will get fired and get replaced with someone who will. You WILL have to work every weekend since all branches are understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the top down mentality. You are killing your field representatives. Read these reviews, they will give you an idea of the morale of your employees.

    Growing rapidly and working hard to keep up.

    Continue to look for creative ways to grow the business while ensuring a solid work/life balance for the auditors in the field. Don't lose your identity as a People First company during growth periods.

    I worked at Steritech full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people that work at Steritech are great. Always room for a promotion if you learn how to play by the Steritech rules and don't question authority too much. Benefits were good but that takes away from salary.

    Cons

    The people at Steritech are great but almost everyone is frustrated with senior management and the choices they make. Everyone is looking for that next opportunity but broken promises keep employees waiting for their big break and hoping that things will get better. Inadequate technology keeps the company behind the competitors which will be their downfall. Low salaries (except for senior management) do not help everything that has to be dealt with on a regular basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the hard decisions that need to be made. If you really want the company to succeed actually start focusing on the core values again and don't let the fleece get pulled over your eyes.

    I have been working at Steritech full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Respect and value you as an individual. Everyone knows the company's purpose. It is easy to feel proud to be a part of Steritech. All companies talk about people, but Steritech really wants to build a company where people are challenged to take care of clients and given everything they need to be successful.

    Cons

    Not all managers execute on the company purpose as intended. Most people at Steritech are scattered across the country. In many cases your manager is the primary face of Steritech. Most of them are terrific. However when you get a bad one everyone suffers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify managers that jeopardize the culture and deal with them quickly. Continue to listen to people in the field and address their challenges. I like being on a successful team. We have more than doubled in size every 5 years since I have been here.
