    Pros

    Great benefits. Excellent hours, pretty much work your own schedule. Leave early come in early. You can make what you want depending on how much effort you put in. If you work your route hard and build your clientele this can be a rewarding position.

    Cons

    You do ALL the work for the sale. Cold call. Service the account and a debt collector. Have to deal with small shops that want the best equipment for the lowest price. Vacation pay is absurd. They need to take a average of your last 6 months and give you that as your vacation pay.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your service Reps. They are the one constant in this business and make the most for your branch. Don't constantly spoon feed your sales managers when all they have to do is cold call. When customers call in give the lead to your SSR. They are servicing EVERY account by them self, staying up to date On work orders and responsible for cold callings as well.

    I worked at Heritage-Crystal Clean LLC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You have the potential of making decent money, especially if it is in a performance based position. The benefits are not bad. The job itself while physically strenuous, is not overly difficult and if you are in decent shape, should pose few problems. You also can learn marketable and valuable skills in doing this job.

    Cons

    The hours can be very long. You may spend most of your time driving from location to location. The company itself is also not run in a very efficient manner causing not only waste and lost business opportunities, but also disgruntled customers. The mechanism for promoting people to the position to Branch Manager does not seem to be that great. Mine was a very unstable individual who should have never been promoted and whose actions cost the company a great deal of money and some of his key people.

    Advice to Management

    Need to make modifications to recruitment efforts to attract more quality people that can eventually be promoted into management positions. Also should perhaps consider using outside firm to analyze business structure and operations with the aim of improving things and making processes more efficient.
