    I had a phone interview with the recruiter. She asked me behavioral based questions looking for situation, action , and result answers. I was scheduled for an in person interview within a few days. The interview was professional but comfortable. I have had others offers that I turned down even though the pay was higher. I felt valued and respected during the interview. It feels like a collaborative work environment with room for growth.

    'Field Chemist' Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clackamas, OR
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Clean Harbors (Clackamas, OR) in December 2019.

    Interview

    I only made it through a few minutes of the interviewer talking as fast as she could like it was a mix of speed dating and those loan terms you hear in radio ads. The ad they had posted was for an environmental hazmat chemist with the title of 'field chemist.'

    The pay is only $17-20 an hour, not the $34,000-$66,000 they claim. That wage is with overtime? They want a bachelors+ and CDL+hazmat. They claim to provide the schooling for the CDL and hazmat, but it looks to be like they were trying to combine a field hazmat inspector with a hazmat driver. I felt the whole thing was deceptive and I might have proceeded further if their job posting had at least been honest about what they were asking for.

    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Clean Harbors.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process went very quickly and was pretty easy, but when I asked why they were filling the position (AKA what happened to the person before me), they skirted around the question, which should have been a red flag. It turns out that this is an incredibly toxic work environment and in retrospect, I can see why the past employee left.
