    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Shred-it International (Pittsburgh, PA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    3 interviews and a field ride along day. Ended with a skype interview with the VP. Very nice, Easy going process. So far a pleasurable experience. Met personally with hiring manager twice before doing the ride a long which is in another market... not the market you will be working within. Must be flexible, optimistic, and hard working.

    It takes awhile due to security background checks but worth it. You will meet with the GM and then get a call back from the SM if you make it to the next stage. Offer usually comes quick

    Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Warning: please avoid this company at all cost, waste of your time and energy. Very unprofessional from the start. The initial interview was intented to take an hour and it ended up lasting over three hours. I was at their office from 4 until 7 p.m. For all three hours he just droned on about himself and the problems he had with his team. It was very uncomfortable since it was only just the two of us (everyone else had left) Then to top it off I never received a follow up email from the recruiter. From my experience I am just very skeptical about this business and management.
