    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

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are willing to learn. You have a lot of independence and freedom to do your job. Co-workers can be great if you’re willing to be a team player.

    Account managers can be a pain if you’re not willing to follow up on issues you give them. Communication between account managers and service team can be challenging.

    I worked at Safety-Kleen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It’s a job. Didn’t feel that way until Lube was introduced. Unrealistic wants from company.

    Cons

    Constant pay reduction.
    Constant ways to eliminate your pay
    More work less pay. Not even same pay but less.
    Unrealistic goals to obtain with introduction of lube. With no major advertisement. People do not care if it’s a HQ oil. It’s too expensive for a new product in a saturated market.

    Advice to Management

    They won’t care to listen. The answer is price increases.
