    I worked at Shred-it International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All my co - workers were outstanding . It really did feel like a team atmosphere. Allison was my supervisor . In spite of the extreme high stress and demand He was always supportive. All the others ( co workers) were also equally supportive. The only reason I left this job to go back to my previous employer was to help my family more at home . I wish I would have stayed.

    Cons

    Lifting 100lb bags down flights of stairs. Very hard on your back. Even though its policy not to . It often gets done anyway to please the customer. Which in understandable. Still a great place to work However this is a very fast paced very physical job. You are on a strict schedule to make many stops every day . So this job is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management only . Why do you pay stericycle drivers over 20..00 per hour while the Shred it drivers who also are required to have a CDL stay around 15.00 per hour ?Its basically the same job and same job title. The only difference is the Shred it drivers have more stops and have to life much heavier . But as I said still a great company to work for . Would highly recommend , to the right kind of person .

     - There are often issues with customers handled by the inbound team, creating problems for branch-based ISE’s and operations
     - Relationship between operations and sales can be strained depending on the branch

    Advice to Management

    - Manage the ROE more effectively
    - Better Management training
