This is a company on the move - working through change has only made me and those around me stronger. Now as one of the Top 50 Companies to Sell For in America the future looks very bright indeed and I'm proud to be part of the journey.

    Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Stericycle (Chicago, IL) in November 2015.


    Initially, after speaking with a member of the company, there was a retained search firm screen; then onto an incumbent interview, and finally with the entire executive leadership team interviews.
