    Pros

    Teach you everything you need to know initially about sales. Activity.

    Cons

    Paperless future, and the company is ultimately going to consolidate sales employees much like Iron Mountain. Sales positions will go to an account management model once territories mature.

    Pros

    Protected territories, Sales Training is extended, Can be a team environment.

    Cons

    Managers can step on your toes during sales appointments, You are not supplied with knowledge who is your clients in your territory, Sales goals raise to fast, Inside Sales reps do not help with leads by any means.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and make sure you do drug tests so you aren't forcing someone to work under a drug addict that will be late to your sales appointments and or so high they don't know what was already said.

    Pros

    Clear cut expectations. Great co workers. Good place to work for new or experienced sales reps in their careers. Money is there if you are willing work and sell

    Cons

    It was a tough transition when stericycle acquired shred it. A lot of changes and bumps in the road but 2017 has been off to a great start. Management and the higher ups worked hard to get us where we are. Still some bumps in the road here and there.

    Sometimes tough to get a hold of specific shredit branches for service related issues which makes for a longer sell cycle.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to help sales teams with cohesiveness, don't lose the shredit mindset

    Pros

    Great co workers decent pay

    Cons

    Ever since the merger last year company has went way down too many people in management positions don't really know who to listen too and none of them care about customers or employees the call center is a joke they can't even route the calls to the correct places communication is almost obsolete no one seems to know anything if you have any questions

    Advice to Management

    Treat your customers and employees better I'm mean after the customers pay the bills and the employees are the face of the company you would think you guys would know that but I guess not

    Pros

    Pay is decent. Start off at 15.
    4 day work week

    Cons

    They've been bought out twice in a 1 yr period. Transitioning sucks. Fire good workers and expect you to pick up slack. Its falling apart.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on treating your employee good and you'll get good results. Get new trucks. Stop favoritism.
