    I worked at Safety-Kleen full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great manager who was supportive and there for me through my onboarding. Many ride alongs and support from other team members in different regions.

    Cons

    If you do not like paperwork this job is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Onboarding and ramp-up time is important. Continue to set expectations of 6m-1 year learning curve to understand compliance regulations. Being the expert in this aspect will create unlimited value to clients.

    Pros

    The branch atmosphere is nice but Corporate is horrible especially now owned by clean harbors

    -No raises/ merit increases in years

    Stop buying everything you can get your hands on and reward current employees before everyone quits at once.

    I worked at Safety-Kleen full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a good place to work, offers geat benefits although medical is expensive. They also have nice award and recognition programs. I really enjoy their interactive wellness program.

    Cons

    Constant system changes that are not very well thought out, or for the better. Implementation of a call center is one of them. The effort is to centralize cust service, but has distanced the business away from the customer - what set it apart.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to Safety-Kleen's roots - excellence in personalized cust care. :-)
