DRIVER (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – January 21, 2017
over worked and under paid......there as any company can always work on doing better for the employees who are the front line of the com[any.Taking care of your employees not just by the benefits and perks but really showing your appreciation would be nice
Great summer job. Nice people to work with, very helpful with life skills. Would work there again or recommend it. I worked at the front desk so I got to inhance my communication skills while learning the computer program they used and filing, faxing, printing and whatever else they needed me to do.
Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 13, 2017
During my time at Shred-it I was able to advance my career. I was given the opportunity to work alongside great individuals that helped pave the path to success. Shred-it is a very well organized and well run company. I would recommend them to anyone who desires to work in this field.
Waste of 7ys of my life that I will not ever get back

Management sucks they play favorites here they only care about them selves..other guys have been here for a shorter period of time and make almost has much as I do..you get in trouble if you miss a stop knowing well that they overload your route and expect you to finish it all....my advice would to not apply here and go somewhere else..no place to advance here the only way that you advance here is that you brown nose the management
Driver (Former Employee) – Oregon – December 19, 2016
It seems management is completely obsessed with taking away everything good in the world. They will even call you in the office just to tell you they are going to fire you someday. They waited 2 years after that to finally let me go. I can't believe how much time I wasted there.
The hardships forces tight bonds with non management co workers.
Worst place to work ever. Unless you like favoritism.
CDL Driver (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – November 21, 2016
The managers are absolutely unfair with the employees. Giving employees that have been there a long time special protection from rules. Exempting them from certain rules. They don't enforce the rules from corporate to certain people. They have absolutely no incentive to make employees want to do better. The employees are nothing but expendable to management. It would really be good if someone from corporate sees this review.
I can't think of any pros. They charge you for your lunch. Even if you don't take a lunch.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Cheshire, CT – October 19, 2016
the job is good because you can be your own boss once you have your own route. you are responsible for your route and the customers you have on a regular. Management will time after time throw your route off because of their miss management on their end and you end up getting screwed over. Pay is ok could be better
4/10 work days optional 5th day for overtime
work load can be very overwhelming, dispatch can be awful
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Bridgewater, NJ – October 2, 2016
At Shred-it I was able to advance in my career as a commercial driver. The managers and employees are all very good people and teach you the skills you need to interact with customers and help the solve any issues they may have. It is a good place for an entry level driver however there are no opportunities for advanced at this company.
Lack of/poor management, leadership, from top to bottom, not a call center or sales role but a small room with telemarketer stacked on top of each other, non working phones and systems, CRM not organized, no moral integrity... Employees stealing each other's deals. Do not work for this company, no career advancement, dead end job, high turn over, poor benefits
Office Coordinator (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – August 30, 2016
I have gotten a lot of experience working with Shred It. The office positions are being eliminated in the company, and they are moving to a call center type environment. Office moral is way down at this point, but overall it has been an ok place to work.
Route Driver/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Bessemer, AL – August 25, 2016
This company has very unrealistic expectations of you. Extremely poor management. Extremely unethical with their employees and their customers. Extremely physical demanding job with very long work hours. If someone needed a company to use as an example for safety validations this would be the one. To my astonishment I noticed this company had three stars which is obviously rig by upper management in the company.
