Can be a good company if under new management and a union!
Bleander/loader (Former Employee) –  East Chicago, INFebruary 21, 2018
Not much to say bout this company it has the potential for good things, but under very poor management currently and pay is lacking for the amount of work your expected to complete.

Good job; Bad Management
Sales Representative/HAZMAT Technician (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALFebruary 20, 2018
I left to move with my family. The local management was horrible, but a good job, nonetheless. They pay great, and you get some great discounts. Great benefits, too.

Relaxing and cohesive team
Central Route Planner (Current Employee) –  Richardson, TXFebruary 7, 2018
Laid back environment but dedicated to a committed goal. Upper management has a lack of direction causing employees to constantly start projects and then abandon before completion.

Fast paced, ever changing environment
Director (Former Employee) –  Richardson, TXFebruary 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.
Pros
Good people
Cons
Yearly layoffs, 401K, health Insurance

Rapid, maybe too rapid
cog in the machine (Current Employee) –  Fallon, NVJanuary 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.

Good Company, great managers
OIL SALES AND ROUTE REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) –  Englewood, CO 80110January 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.
Pros
great managers and you are working on your own
Cons
long hours and traffic driving

You'll work your butt off
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  New Kingstown, PADecember 30, 2017
Typical corporate america type of place. Clean Harbors owns SK and made it very difficult at times to get your job done. You work a lot of hours. Most all positions have commission or bonuses.

Customer Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNDecember 24, 2017
long territory some days 4hr drive to get to first stop. Most of the time had to run with 2 time logs. stressful. The pay plan would change sometimes right in the middle of the day. management was just as crazy..sometimes you crack your nut early in the day and then time to just chill. 3 overnighters a week its a young mans game.

Presidents council was the bomb...
Pros
Pay plans when you find the cheese..better with chedda
Cons
no breaks.old broken down fleet..
