    Pros

    The people were nice Good starting place for your career Got some good experience

    Cons

    Everyone hates their job; employees talk about how horrible the company is all the time Operator pay is low Equipment is old and broken Quick fixes instead of investing money to prevent issues Can't keep good, talented, hardworking people Very slow to hire new people to replace people who have left

    Advice to Management

    Please invest in the company and actually fix the plants that already exist. If you want to get and keep talent and hard work, you might have to just pay more and not force so much overtime on workers. People need a work life balance, and burnout is real. Replacing old, broken equipment, especially the trucks, will also help employees stay with the company.

    I worked at Tradebe full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Paid training for 40hrs of Hazardous Waste Handling (HAZWOpER) Rare overtime Monopolistic company that will likely continue to grow in size

    Cons

    Deliberate short pay on hours worked on three separate paychecks. They changed policy on punching out for breaks and shorted all employees 2 and half hours of pay that week. When brought to management's attention, "they already knew about the issue beforehand." That means they did it on purpose. Constant safety negligence. They requested employees to use gloves sparingly - while handling unknown hazardous... waste! They frowned upon taking the time to wear proper PPE. All the PPE is cross contaminated from being handled for years, but they refuse to buy new equipment. Hot warehouse with temps easily affected by weather, but they won't provide water in summer and the drinking fountain is obviously contaminated.

    Pros

    Each department is different. -Many of the mangers are not great however, mine is wonderful. Listens and executes a plan to make sure work is done smoothly and everyone is happy. -Good benefits - health, 401k, vacation/sick, life, etc. -Flexible schedule, allowing for working from home at times -Good pay

    Cons

    -Not a lot of chance for advancement unless you are willing to move -Constant threat of being let go, makes for a very stressful work environment

    Advice to Management

    Talk with your employees more, especially before eliminating a position or letting anyone go. Management may think they know what is required of a particular role in the company but since they do not actually do the job, they often are unaware of the many intricacies involved.

    Pros

    Really cool supervisors ( I liked my supervisor at least) Nice people in general

    Cons

    Horrible pay Won't learn much if you have a degree Avoid if you have chemistry degree or engineering. This place won't suit you at all. Work is very basic and repetitive

    Advice to Management

    If you want people who are educated to stick around, maybe pay them.

    Pros

    Offers longevity and a great group of people to work with. Benefits are good and competitive. Company has been growing and will continue to offer opportunities in the future.

    Cons

    Several structure changes recently but should prepare Tradebe for continued growth.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to review benefit offerings and wages for competitiveness. Sometimes just one "good job" to someone can mean the world.
