Pros: good pay
Cons: mandatory overtime, management, rude salesmen, corporate doesn't care about you, always busy and never happy.
A typical day at Shred-It NY starts with your boss sending you 400 emails of tasks for the day, not including your daily responsibilities that don't require reminders. The position I was in was held by two other girls who loved nothing more than to pass work off on someone else. Its every man/woman for themselves at this office. I learned to just do my job, keep focus on the customer's needs and get through the day. Make no mistake, I used to love my job. I worked at another branch of Shred-It on the west coast. I was treated with respect and felt like part of a team. Shred-It NY is the exact opposite. Grouchy moods plague the office. Management was awful. Management is never on your side, whether an issue that came up was of no fault of your own (i.e. salesmen misspelled information on a contract and now a customer is upset because YOU are the one who inputs the information, even though the sales sheet is SUPPOSED to be approved by THEIR manager before being submitted to my department). The hardest part of the job was pleasing the customer, which is something this branch could not do. Their "Oh well, so sad!" attitude towards a customer was very disheartening. I would try everything I could in my power to help the customer, but that's where it ended. Nobody would go the extra mile for our customers, not even their own coworkers. The most enjoyable part of my day at Shred-It was leaving, knowing I had completed my tasks and did the best job I could for our customers
