Stressfull, Long Hours, Hard Work and Backstabbing Colleagues!
Sales and Service Representative (Former Employee) – El Cajon, CA – March 2, 2018
This could have been a great job for someone that doesn't mind hard work. I did not. The problem with the organization is that the management has created an enviroment of very unhealthy competition which attracts backstabbing, undermining ego-centric employees. The organization could be much more productive and lucrative for e veryone if the employees were MADE to work as a team and follow strict ethical standards or BE FIRED> Unfortunately, this would require management to have strong leadership skills. Having been in the military for a while, I quickly realized that what I saw at Safety Kleen is what we were warned in the military about. What can happen to an organization without strong leadership. Now I know. It wasn't a difficult decision to resign. I was in the El Cajon, CA branch, maybe it's different at another location.
Good pay with incentives, working alone after training, creating long lasting friendships with customers.
No teamwork, working with pirahnas, weak managment.
Lead Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Independence, MO – February 27, 2018
I was the lead Admin and did all the hiring of new admin. Worked for several company Executives and loved my job. I also supported driver with proper paper work and played a very important role in keeping our company in compliance with the EPA. We had quarterly inspection by the state and I always passed them with flying colors. I prided myself very much on always passing those inspections and my boss also very much loved that skill set in my work.
I was the lead and a very good leader.
Sometimes too busy to get breaks but I really didn't mind much.
Sales and Service Representative (Current Employee) – Texas – February 24, 2018
I was old that it was a relaxed atmosphere when I was interviewed. It is very far from that. Extremely stressful. You are expected to do more work than you are paid for. Your salary covers 8 hours, but you normally work 10-12 sometimes more. You have unattainable goals set for what they expect. Don't understand why they expect you to do all that you do, without compensation. They need to change pay structure to correct turnover rate.
Senior Inventory Analyst (Former Employee) – Elgin, IL – February 6, 2018
Company was sales driven with the goal of 20% growth per year. Everything was going great until the company made a poison purchase of a Canadian oil recycling company that nearly bankrupted Safety Kleen
Director (Former Employee) – Richardson, TX – February 2, 2018
No clear strategy on what the company should be. Things change 2 to 3 times a day on how to move forward on strategies or projects. Poor 401K, health insurance cost is high and coverage is so-so. But in certain departments the people are what keeps one there. Certain managers/ senior leaders are good at what they do and take care of those who report to them while others aren't.
Sales & Customer Service Rep (Current Employee) – Greer, SC – January 17, 2018
nice people pay could be good if you are willing to be patient for at least a year or two work is physically demanding long hours good benefits and paid time off personal days and sick days commission plan for drivers basically is just a way of cutting out having to pay overtime
long days/if you aren't hourly then you get no overtime or incentive to work long days
Branch General Manager (Current Employee) – West Chester, PA – January 17, 2018
very strange clique driven enviorment. Old boy mgmt. network and the company wants to introduce great new products but the mgmt. does not have the skill set to properly educate and train the field staff
cog in the machine (Current Employee) – Fallon, NV – January 16, 2018
SK is expanding rapidly with oil refineries. They aren't taking the time to build up and stabilize the sites they purchase before moving on. It might seem under-staffed, but the work will keep you busy.
OIL SALES AND ROUTE REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) – Englewood, CO 80110 – January 7, 2018
Really like the company and managers but the job is 75 miles from my home which is really difficult. If I lived closer this job would be absolutely wonderful. Even with the drive it is still one of the best companies I have worked for.
