Not a great place to work
PO Administrator (Former Employee), Norwell, MASeptember 4, 2014
Pros: decent benefits
Cons: no advancement, no recognition, outrageous healthcare deductible, low morale
Corporate office does not pay well. Not liveable wages. No room for advancement. No reviews. No raises. No recognition. Morale is low. Day-to-day isnt too bad. A lot of paper pushing but thats expected. Decent benefits including PTO and 401K match. Coworkers of mine who had been there 7 years only received two 2% raises in their time with the company.
My – more... department worked very hard through a major business acquisition putting in long hours every week for months, only to receive zero recognition/appreciation/compensation and have our hours cut.
Management is not well received across the board. – less

long hours, longer hours, minimal room for advancement while working very long hours
UNDISCLOSED (Former Employee), CLEVELAND, OHIOAugust 6, 2014
Pros: decent pay although ot is the only way to make money, raises for performance are out of the question.
Cons: never seeing your family & missing out on all family focused events
Busy is great. Always work to be done at a pace of 90 mph with your hair on fire. Loved most aspects of the job as far as work tasks are concerned. The amount of work for one person is that of 2-3 people. Hours average 70-85 hour work weeks including days, nights, weekends and holidays. Non-accommodating to understanding family and work life balance.

People there were very caught up in small town drama and gossip
Receiving Technician (Former Employee), NEJuly 21, 2014
Pros: great pay, 16.50 starting!
Cons: they hold the pay against you, think they are irreplacable
I felt as if i was with the military while working there. I know jobs can be less stressful with the proper training and managment. I liked a few co workers but the managment and people in charge were childish and caught up with video games and youtube. while at work.

Pros: some other employees were a pleasure to work with
Cons: don't care for employees, very poor upper management, no appreciation for what employees do for them

Bulking Needles (Job Description)
Lead CleanPack Chemist (Current Employee), Cannon Falls, MNMay 29, 2014
If you want to dump 5 gallon containers of needles into a drum, then work for Clean Harbors! A decent job, minimal room for advancement. Co-workers are what makes the job bearable. They pay for you to get your CDL and Hazwoper training as well.

Good people, awful leadership
Corporate (Current Employee), MAMay 28, 2014
Pros: people
Cons: virtually everything else
The people are great, and the culture is not stuffy due to the blue collar nature of the work.

Many of the people making decisions have been at Clean Harbors for many years and fail to either see, or accept that you can't run a company with 14k employees the same way as when it was 3k employees.

People making decisions in very senior positions are – more... not qualified to run their departments, and thus create an enormous amount of inefficiencies and any ability to excel. – less

Excellent Systems and Training
Field Project Manager (Former Employee), San Jose, CAMay 27, 2014
Pros: excellent systems and training
Cons: too many hours; management bullies
Nice company to know great systems. The information is not very hard to find due to the great systems, it is all there at your fingertips. The training is top notch.

Management needs to get down to grass roots and stop bullying. People need to be treated like human beings, not equipment. The hours are not that great and it is expected to work 60 hours – more... per week as a minimum. – less

Lots of hours/ Disgrunteled Workforce
Employee (Current Employee), Aragonite, UTApril 7, 2014
Pros: lots of hours
Cons: management, disgrunteld workforce, complacent workforce
A typical day of work out here consist of a hour van ride to the worksite followed by a ten or twelve hour day depending on the workload. This is followed by another hour van ride back to your personal vehicle. There are chances for advancement in the right depatrments. If you do a good job you will be rewarded eventually. However nomatter how much – more... work you get done even if you exceed your goal they will expect more and ask why that is not accomplished. – less

Plenty of overtime available!
Receiving Chemist (Current Employee), Aragonite/Dougway, UTMarch 3, 2014
Pros: inumerable hours.
Cons: management, no time off
The work is pretty enjoyable and interesting to learn about, but the company has pretty big issues. The workforce is the most disgruntled group of people that I've ever met in my life. Time off comes very rare in this company so if you have no life but work it's the best place to be.
