    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. :-)

    Pros

    Great pay if you have the ambition and drive to make the career worth it. Must be a self driven employee to assume responsibilities.

    Cons

    Immense pressure for sales team with the introduction of re-refined lubricants. Sales goals and standards are a cookie cutter build, and no recognition of territory.

    Advice to Management

    Lean more on employees rather than numbers. Not every territory will be the same, and if your people are doi
