Seeking a workplace with constant chance for advancement
Liquid Transfer Operator/ Spotter (Current Employee) – Dolton, IL – November 16, 2015
My current workplace is an atmosphere of tension and fear of management. Numbers are important, but not for all employees. I am currently the only employee that is demanded to work in other areas outside of my hired job. There is absolutely no chance for advancement for me in my present employment. I am a hard working individual, highly self motivated, and very open to learning new jobs and hunger for the chance of building a great working relationship with management and my coworkers. I am currently experienced and trained in several areas in the chemical industry. I am also trained to drive the yard truck and make trailer moves for the entire campus. I am also trained to use the railcar shuttle, that enables us to move railcars without the help of the rail road company.

This location had managers that seemed very disconnected from the employees. A large amount of paperwork was involved for state and federal audits which reduced the amount of work expected of an individual daily.
Facility Technician II (Former Employee) – Bristol, CT – August 22, 2015
Clean Harbors is not a place to work if you are hoping for advancement or long term employment. Promotions are made by favoritism and raises aren't enough. The hourly wage is barely above poverty. If you have medical issues and you can't do all what your job description says (even if you never did all that is listed in your job description) they use that excuse to let you go. When you go out of your way to go above and beyond you are not noticed for what you do. When you do something that another employee told you not to do,, All of a sudden that employee is a supervisor and you disobeyed a directive and you get a 3 day suspension.
tech lll (Former Employee) – Grantsville, UT – September 10, 2015
working on the drum dock . I learned the paper work I do every day I work. The co-worker I had there are really good guys they would help anybody out if need. The hardest thing was doing being on the computer figuring out where things go where how to exposed the material we had. I have fun for the BBQ they did for the groups and co-workers
Managet/ driver (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – August 8, 2015
Do not work for this company. It's the worst company that I have work for , low pay , to many to no hours , they claim safety is their first priority, but it's not as a matter of fact it's their least concern. I've seen employees in very dangerous positions and they just made fun of them if they didn't want to do it if they didn't feel safe. No bonuses or raises. Absolutely no qualified leadership or management. Cheapest company ever. Bad equipment and tools. I would not recommend this company to my very worst enemy.
have the best co-workers enjoy working with them we get along so well very funny guys makes work go by so quickly great company to work for but management could use a little more training its all about the numbers
Not worth it unless you have a strong back and you get hired right outta high school
Class A wet Vac operator (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – November 16, 2015
This company was a big disappointment, they sell you a dream then give you a nightmare they sent me all the way across the country to train for 9 days after that that's where the nightmare began I am a truck driver not a field hand..I mean field tech all I did was run around like a chicken with my head off lifting carrying pushing pulling cleaning and breaking my back I did not go to CDL school to be a field hand I mean field tech I'm an equipment operator that's what I should be doing because that's what I was hired to do this company moves slow as molasses to get drivers signed off on the equipment I can drive every truck they have in the yard but not until they sign me off after I get the training to operate it which they never gave me. In my first 2 months two drivers quit one Forman quit and one field tech transferred management at this shop is horrible and running the operation into the ground two years ago they had 30 guys now they are down to 8 guys in the field and two in the office that can come in the field this operation needs an enema.
Environmental Field Tech 1 (Former Employee) – Glenmont,NY – May 17, 2015
Clean harbors is all about clean harbors and not about the employee. I learned a lot from this company. The management at clean harbors in Glenmont, NY do whatever they want, they come in whenever the want and leave whenever they want. The co-workers will bust your stones over the littlest things so you better have thick skin. The hardest part about this job is the on-call 24/7/365. No matter what you are always on call and even if you can't go out to a emergency call due to family issues, the management will be very upset and they will keep calling you. I had personal issues where I had to take off 2 days a week due to doctors appointments and the management got very upset cause they thought I was using them for the money. DO NOT AND I REPEAT DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY IN GLENMONT,NY
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Sulphur, LA – February 25, 2016
A typical work day working out of the Clean Harbors Sulphur, LA Office is unpredictable. The General Manager is Two-Faced and lies about everything. Example: We didn't have work gloves many times so we brought it to his attention and he replied; (Oh yeah there's some out in the shop). which was a lie. Also, I Had worn out tires on my Tractor Truck and I told the Supervisor about the issue and he told me that; (The Tires Are okay enough to Continue hauling loads). The Bottom line is because of the Manager's carelessness I could have been pulled over by D.O.T. and fined personally if I would have continued driving the truck with those worn out tires missing tread down the highway. This manager is deliberately hiring people to do jobs without giving them the proper PPE and training they need so that when the company loses a job, the manager blames the workers for the loss of jobs/work to the customer and to corporate to cover himself. I predict this company will disappear from this area if the Corporate Office doesn't remove the Manager soon. The Supervisor the Manager hired is Clueless to how to run Vacuum or Hydroblasting Jobs so therefore there isn't much business being acquired and the jobs they have done they have never been called back to do anymore work.

They Stopped matching 401k and manager and supervisor are careless and unknowledgeable
