    I worked at Sims Recycling Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Would like to say they pay well but they don't. They have decent benefits. If your in the good ol boys club you have a job for life no matter how unqualified you are.

    Cons

    As an equipment operator I can see how the lack of management knowledge hurts the business day to day. The general manager is clueless and is not qualified for the job. It is a "who you know" job they don't look at your quality of work. It's sad when all of mid level management is smarter than the person they work for. If your not from the club you will never move up in this company.

    Advice to Management

    You can't give them advice because they don't listen to the people that do the actual work.
