Senior Administrative (Former Employee), Houston, Texas – March 12, 2013
Pros: the give everyone an iphone.
Cons: kept tabs on you, 'sink or swim' type attitude, see below for more.
When I came on board, the company just laid a whole bunch of people off so it was not clear who was in charge of what. Took the HR department almost a month to get my benefits sorted out. My manager got irritated with me when I asked questions and later told me I asked too many. Everytime I was late, missed a day or had a doctor appointment, it was – more... documented (not a laid back atmosphere like the recruiter sold it to me). – less
Cons: no benifits not full time not knowing schedule
Go into big companies and clean up different types of equipment. Learned how to use different types of pressure washers and the water tanks. Co-workers and management were different every day depending on which building we were in. The hardest part of the job was not having a set schedule and going day by day and not being full time all the time
business development (Former Employee), Houston, Texas – March 10, 2013
Pros: nice people, flexible schedules (no fridays off)
Cons: see above
Everyone was super nice. It's in the Galleria and if you get an office, the views are killer.
Recruiter sold the job one way and it turned out to be something different. Benefits are expensive. Make sure nothing happens to you in the first few months. They kept tabs on me and I was told I asked too many questions. HR couldn't get my benefits straightened – more... out till the middle of the month, AFTER I started. RUN, don't walk away. – less

Environmental Technician (Former Employee), Hatfield, PA – January 20, 2013
Pros: plenty of ot, and the environmental technicians have there own perks to there job.
Cons: low wages, bias night crew supervisor.
I landed this job at PSC after being laid off by BP in 2010. The company implements good safety practices and there plant manager is great to work for, real down to earth guy. As far as the type of work your doing dealing with hazardous waste I feel the company is not on a competitive level. I worked around hazardous chemicals for over 20 years and – more... respirators and PPE gear were standard. They started me at 15.50 an hour. That is ok for a kid straight out of high school with minimal experience. The starting pay for the long standing hours with PPE gear on for necessary safety should be no less than 21.00 an hour for an experienced chemical operator. OT was plentiful during my time there. – less
Will someone please check: NONE OF THE COMMENTS ARE FOR THIS BUSINESS !!!!
PSC is for a salon not wastemanagement or hazmat!!!

Hazmat technician (Current Employee), Detroit MI – December 18, 2012
Cons: the $, management, cheap trucks, lack of safety, poor equipment
This use to be a great place to work,but then the investment group that owns us decided to pay us 46 cents a mile!This is route work not line haul! We are going broke and the people who own us in Houston dont know anything about the hazardous waste business. After the 1st of the year the drivers will be leaving and this company will have to close. Do – more... not apply here this is a sinking ship! – less
Tech (Former Employee), Clarksville – December 10, 2012
Pros: the pay sometimes
I worked in the clarksville tn branch. The worst job ever period. There supervisor is a clown no respect for there employees. You pay Fifty four dollars a week for health insurance which is mandatory Because its union. By time you pay for all your benefits and union dues your looking at a hundred dollars taken out of your check before taxes. The pay – more... is ok you start out at 12.40 hr your first pay raise is after a thousand hrs worked. For the work you have to do its not enough I promise. As for safety to be honest they are trying to change. Key word is trying the rules will get broken as long its ok to get the job done. This job can maim or kill you in a second. Expect to work 16 long hrs because this branch in clarksville is short handed all the time. Your on call 24/7 so if you want to have life outside work look somewhere else! – less
Temporary receptionist (Former Employee), Providence, ri – November 27, 2012
Was here temping for a little bit. Never even got to meet the person who was "supervising" me, and never got any introductions to anyone. I realize as a temp that people don't really bother to invest much into you, but pointing someone towards the bathroom and the kitchen should be a general courtesy for any worker. I was filling in for the receptionist, – more... and as such needed to take phone calls and page people. The only time people ever talked to me was to yell that the person I had paged wasn't there. It was really awkward and unwelcoming, and I wouldn't ever advise anyone to work there as a temp. I felt like I was a bother to them the entire time I was there. As a final sort of kicker, I got a stomach bug one day and called out sick so I wouldn't get anyone else sick or make a mess. They cancelled my contract because I called out sick. That told me that they didn't care about people in general.
Also, the technology they're using to administrate their business could have come straight from the 80s.
Maybe the place has changed (I temped there around the summer of 2012) and the experience is different as a permanent employee, but I would be careful around this company. – less
Equipment Manager (Former Employee), Beaumont, TX – November 23, 2012
Pros: company truck furnihed
Cons: the 24 hr call
Typical day was working in office until job called in. Then dispatching trucks and equipment to job sites.I learned the basics of computers on this job. Management was great to work for. Coworkers were friendly and socialable. The hardest part of the job was to terminate someone.The most enjoyable part of the job was to hire and train new employees.
Staff Accountant (Current Employee), San Juan, PR – November 5, 2012
Pros: bonus, excellent boss, good co-workers, semminars
Cons: low pay
Love the environment; the work is varied. You learn to do very clerical work like filing and answering the phone up to more complex tasks like represent clients in governmental agencies. The co-workers are excellent, like a family. The hardest part of my job is the time of the busy season when we stay working until very late at night. The favorite part – more... of my job is when I do Auditing Procedures and when I visit my clients. We also are constantly in continuing education. – less
enviromental technician (Former Employee), raleigh nc – October 20, 2012
Pros: good working hours
Cons: no infomation communication barriers
I worked with this company for 3 months. the wages were fair but the company kept you in the dark about the job until you were on site. They used you then threw you away. No rhyme or reason. Expected you to be a yes man even though what you were doing were against enviromental regulations
Technician (Former Employee), Canton, OH – October 5, 2012
Pros: free lunches at times
Cons: technicians get no benefits but are the backbone of the company
very physically demanding a normal day consists of bending twisting pulling and a lot more. the management was alright good in some places not so much in others. co workers where all good people of course there's always those who just cant get along with others. the hardest part of the job was getting over the fact that pretty much everything in the – more... marathon refinery and Timken factory can harm or kill a person. the most enjoyable part of the job for me was the hydroblasting its just interesting to me. – less
