Worthwhile experience
Branch Administrator (Current Employee), North Amityville, NYAugust 20, 2015
Although this is not the field I want to work in, I learned a lot from my time here. Aside from office experience, you get a strong understanding of chemical and environmental procedures/standards.

Hard work which is ok,learned a lot about hazardous chemicals,and cleanup of those chemicals.Management was not telling me what they really meant(poor communication).The coworkers were very nice and encouraging.Hardest part was shoveling sludge out of a pit. the most enjoyable part of the day was punching out.

Temp to Hire Warehouse (Former Employee), Fresno, CAJuly 8, 2015
Pros: Pay is decent
Cons: Everything
If written to many higher-ups and none of them seem to want to correct the problems in Fresno. They stick together and blame the hardest workers in the company. Revenue driven, they don't care about your problems.

Amazing place to work before buyout.
Environmental sales Specialist (Former Employee), Lexington, KYJune 17, 2015
I used to love my Job at Safety-Kleen before it was acquired by Clean Harbors. Clean Harbors was still in the stone ages when they switched us over to their system, in both proper ways of managing environmental waste for their customers and also their profiling system. It turned a simple streamlined process that would take a few hours to complete into each task taking 2-4 weeks to finally complete – more... through their archaic system.
We lost alot of customers due to Clean Harbors inability to fill their needs in a timely manner and any large customers we did win were taken from the Safety-Kleen sales staff and given to a Clean Harbors rep to handle instead. I know acquisitions are rough in all cases for both sides however it made going to work a nightmare and no longer something I was able to enjoy. – less

Fast paced environment
Admin (Current Employee), Romulus, MIJune 11, 2015
Pros: overtime, seniority, my customers relationships
Cons: healthcare, management, atmospere
Fast paced environment. I run an office that is supposed to have 3 admin but we have lost 2 recently. I am overworked and understaffed. We have new management that wants more and more out of you when there is no more to give. I have been working 5 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday and some Saturdays. I do data entry, customer service, purchasing, timekeeping, accounts receivable, accounts payable, help the sales reps with misc issues, print paperwork for 8 reps for our customers for environmental waste pick ups. I absolutely love what I do. I just do not like the atmosphere it has become and the new management.

OKAY PLACE TO WORK

Okay place to work, pay was an issue. Pay was far to low for the work load and for a CDL driver with a haz-mat and tanker endorsement.

Enjoyable Position in Sale and Operations Management
(SK) - General Operations Manager (Former Employee), Cloquet MNMarch 9, 2015
Was responsible for the location's accounts, sales team, administrative employees and all drivers. P&L, balancing a budget, fleet operations, compliance for hazardous waste industry, training and overall operations. I learned how to handle customers in a positive manner, management style dealing with employees. The management team was extremely intelligent and was continuously supportive. Co workers were hard working, confident and willing to learn. The most challenging part of the position was collecting money from customers. Enjoyable part of the job was the ever changing environment, as every day was unique with opportunities.

Representative (Former Employee), N Las Vegas, NVMarch 3, 2015
Pros: good place to work.
Cons: the abrupt changes... pay structure, work, moral, and fulfilment.
Safety-Kleen when it was just safety-kleen was a great place to work. You had the freedom of making alot of income based on your work ethics and your desire.

In 2010 it was purchased by Clean Harbors and everything has changed. The desire is gone and the family atmoshere is gone, the fun is gone!
