    I have been working at Safety-Kleen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is always there, they own the market, if they want the business they can make it happen, very diversified in their field, leading edge solutions.

    Cons

    Too many to list all. Opportunity for a above average earnings here is based on a small base pay and lucrative commissions . Only problem is the sales force is really account management, commissions have to be earned after 8 hours a day of managing accounts with an incredible amount of micromanaging by managers that admit they could not do your job. Unrealistic expectations for 2018.

    Advice to Management

    None, churn and burn comes from the very top. They know what they are doing.

    Pros

    Just here for my check.

    Cons

    If you're looking for advancement, this isn't the place (unless you're white).
    Some people may be content with their position...but people have left the company for that reason.

    Pros

    Great Team environment, great company to learn the EHS industry.

    Cons

    Safety-Kleen is owned by Clean Harbors and is not alwasy able to operate like they used too. HR or recently seems to be more only about putting out fires than working to help employees grow into a next role, etc. No 401K match as of 2015 timeframe.

    Advice to Management

    Work to help retain employees verse watching good talent just leave.

    Pros

    Most people are great to work with. Flexible in our department for work life balance.

    Cons

    The corporate owners suck. No raise in 3 years. Increase in insurance. Less and less employer contributions. Yet they keep buying more companies. Lots VP and SRVP.. Too much arrogance in upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Be more concerned for taking care of your employees and they will take care of you.
