Excellent job to get into to learn about chemical disposal
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Lexington, SC – August 18, 2017
Great job at times and very demanding. Seemed to have quotas on production. Processing the amount of used chemicals daily I felt would accumulate over time to be very hazardous and harmful to ones health.
use to be a great company and you felt like a person that mattered. all of that has changed since Clean Harbor bought SK. Now you are just a number with unrealistic goals and expectations. Removing 401k while still aquirring companies is one example of how little it values its employees.

Working at safety Kleen is a great experience being a part of such a safety and team oriented work place has been and continues to be a blessing. It makes me proud to work for one of the leaders in the recycled oil business.
Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – Richardson, TX – July 20, 2017
not one of the great places to work everyone that works there are insecure about their position. All of the managers are on a buddy system instead of talent so they are very insecure about their ability and who they are. If you are looking for growth and opportunity definitely not the place for you to grow.
CHEMIST (Former Employee) – Fallon, NV – July 19, 2017
Plenty of room for advancement within the company. Great people and nice atmosphere. Steady work schedule and lots of overtime if wanted. Management is caring to your needs and home life, they try to work with your schedule. I would definitely work there again.
Fallon location in the middle of nowhere, little housing
Sales and Service Representative (Former Employee) – Cranston, RI – July 14, 2017
I was with Safety-Kleen for approximately 2 years and experienced very poor management practices, extremely high turnover due to employees being treated poorly as well as being expected to do way too much...including other peoples jobs. a lot of back stabbing going on and management by intimidation. The pay is definitley not fair compared to the amount of hours you're expected to work. Wouldn't recommend to a friend or anyone for that matter. I certainly will never go back.
No breaks, Long hours, Unfair pay and compensation
Administrative Assistant duties (Former Employee) – Garden City, GA – July 4, 2017
As a new member of the team you are given plenty of training and encouragement to do your best. You have a list of team members that you are able to contact if you run into any knowledge or business issues. The management values every employee and strives to make the company a friendly productive place of business. You become more like a work family then just employees. You obtain a vast knowledge and many different skills.
This is a good company to work at. Only thing not good was when we were bought by clean harbors they dont give raises. Safety Kleen follows very good safety procedures. They have a very high rating across the US.
Dock Worker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Dolton, IL – June 7, 2017
You work around chemicals all day. The only safe way to work here is to wear a respirator any where you go. The summers are brutal with the heat and fumes of solvent around you. Not to mention the amount of random chemicals you have to dump into a drain pit to dispose of the material.
New Business Development (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 5, 2017
The oil industry is beyond Safety Kleens comprehension. Between the acquisitions and the new product ( oil) line, they are lost and ill managed. Company bought out the competition then kept all the companies fighting over the business. And in not demanding that the companies work together, the real oil companies and competition got stronger and kept the business in the territories.
