    I have been working at Safety-Kleen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent parent company with decent perks and benefits, they really seem to care about safety, but at the local branch, 27 employees quit in less than 2 1/2 years due to harassment

    Cons

    Managers jerk you around, waste your time, try to micro manage, play favorites limit commissions and create a hostile work environment, this is concerning because I'm not sure if some agitated employee will one day, have enough and have devastating results, like 6 o'clock news stuff, involving weapons , a horrible work place

    Advice to Management

    Grow the hell up. Consider feeding or championing an employee instead of pulling his wings off and burning him with that magnifying glass
