Stericycle – Why Work For Us?

From medical waste and document destruction to sustainability services and compliance solutions, the Stericycle team has been serving customers since 1989.

A Team of Purpose-Driven Individuals

Since our founding over 25 years ago, Stericycle has grown from a small start-up in medical waste management into a leader across a range of increasingly complex and highly regulated arenas, including compliance and sustainability waste services, brand protection solutions, and customer contact solutions.

Every organization today must comply with increasingly strict regulatory guidelines and quality controls in the delivery of their core businesses. Large or small, businesses can’t always do it on their own. They seek out Stericycle to help them. We have the expertise and passion to take on many complicated and often behind-the-scenes services our clients don’t always know how to do well but ultimately make their businesses better.

Our team members are encouraged to report ethics issue or violation of our Core Values or Code of Conduct to an independent, confidential resource.


We are honest and open in our interactions with others. When making decisions, we always do the right thing.

One Team. One Goal.

We work as a team, no matter the goal. We share successes and failures together and work to make things better.

Continuous Improvement

We provide the most value while consuming the fewest resources. We embrace the talents of the people who do the work.


We take ownership of our own actions and focus on solutions. We deliver on our promises.

Customer First

We provide service that is valuable for our customers and exceeds their expectations. We respect the value of both our internal and external customers.

Enjoying Our Work

We have a culture that fosters team member engagement and loyalty. We do so with a spirit of camaraderie.

At Stericycle, we’ve spent 25+ years providing highly-specialized solutions to our customers around the globe. We are seeking talented people who are passionate about what they do, have a strong commitment to protecting what matters to our customers, and the desire to safeguard the environment. With us, you'll have the opportunity to learn, face challenges each day that inspire you to be flexible, innovative and adaptable, and do meaningful work that makes a difference for Stericycle customers and our communities.

Our Culture Formula

Our philosophy is what we call the Circle of Growth. It starts with our Team Members. If we can create an environment where Team Members enjoy and excel in what they do, it leads to Customer Loyalty. When customers are loyal, it sustains and grows our Profitable Business. When our business prospers, we can reinvest that profit back into our company and our people to provide better resources to do their jobs. This results in Team Member Loyalty and the cycle repeats.

Community and Social Responsibility

With more than 24,000 team members worldwide, Stericycle understands the impact that our team members can have in the communities that we serve.  At the corporate level, we support a Team Member Hardship Fund to help our own team members when they are facing the most challenging of times.  Furthermore, each of our local facilities and offices are empowered to identify and supprot their own community service opportunities. 

We embrace diversity

We embrace diversity throughout Stericycle, from our talented team members to the partners we engage with. We place an emphasis on ensuring diveristy throughout our supply chain. Inclusion of many perspecitves provides unique insights and the ability to ultimately best meet our customers' needs. We are one team with one goal, and working with a diverse group of supplier partners is an integral part of our success.

    I have been working at Stericycle full-time (More than 3 years)


    Stericycle has the been the best thing to happen to my career in a long time. For people who don't mind hard work, can handle change and love opportunity Stericycle has it all. 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.


    You won't want to work here if you're negative - the new culture won't allow it.

    Anonymous Employee in Cheyenne, WY

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Stericycle (Cheyenne, WY) in November 2018.


    I was interviewed by two individuals. They were very professional and kept the interview on track. Both managers I interviewed with kept the atmosphere very comfortable and relaxed. They both made me able to talk easily with them and discuss my future with the company.
