    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at ProShred Security full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best reason to work for this company is the 40+ hours you can get each week with unlimited overtime.

    Cons

    Battling the elements daily is the only downfall to this job.


  2. "Inconsistent managing of employees"

    I worked at ProShred Security part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing positive ever came from my experience with this company.

    Cons

    After extensive background test, interview, drug screen, and week with a driver on his route, my position was eliminated for reasons unrelated to me. Paying me for my time was an afterthought. Very impersonal...they had decided that they would rely on their call center and website for new business.

    Advice to Management

    Get the right hand to talk to the left hand and stop wasting people's time.

    "Need to know what position they are hiring for."

    Pros

    Nice owners and co-workers... They were paying me very well...

    Cons

    I was hired under the job posting title "Inside Sales" and when I was given my employment papers they stated I was an "Appointment Setter". I told my direct manager (one of the owners) that there was a big difference between the two, and he said, "It's the same thing." Well I don't know if it's because the owners are Canadians, or what, but it's not the same thing!

    The great pay was far overshadowed by my not being able to preform to my highest ability, not just for myself, but for the better of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire employees for what they can do for you according to their talents, not with the intention of forcing them into your mold!

    Pros

    This is a franchised owned company so each location will have different benefits and internal policies. There is potential for growth in the industry if you have the right owners. The small environment also allows you to learn more about the business.

    Cons

    The small culture doesn't allow for rapid growth.

    I have been working at ProShred Security full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro of working for Proshred is the competitive wages. Advised of benefits haven't received any as of yet

    Cons

    Various tasks unrelated to position. Was advised this was a customer service role only to find out it isn't. The hours are too long

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to management is be upfront about what it is you want from your employees! Don't lie about the position!!
