LIKE FATHER LIKE SON. Donald Thompson started with US Ecology York in 2015 as a Chemical Operator. His position grew to include responsibilities involving moving vehicles and roll off boxes around the plant. Don became very skilled with truck operations and was ambitious to apply for the open driver position at the facility. n mid-year 2018, Don went through training to earn a CDL. His training was paid through the US Ecology professional development program. He experienced his on-the-road preparation largely with the guidance of his father, Lou Thompson, who is long-time US Ecology York driver. Don’s experience of growth and development is a strong example of a team member taking advantage of US Ecology investing and promoting great talent.

Approves of CEO


Fair amount of work, good equipment and decent management team. Outstanding benefits!


Lots of hours to work! Low hourly rate. Good ol'boy pay structure. If you complain to management that you’re going to quit they’ll raise your rate of pay. Zero structure on the pay scale.

Advice to Management

Pay all job classes the same.

    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at US Ecology (Livonia, MI) in Oct 2021


    The interview process was relatively simple. The first interview was with the talent acquisition manager (phone) and the second interview was with the hiring manager (virtual). I also had to submit writing samples.

    Tell me about a time you developed marketing content.
