Operation Manager, Production Manager (Former Employee) – Bessemer, AL – September 9, 2019
Really enjoyed the time I spent at Shred It. Great company with good people and friends still there. I had been there long enough and was topped out with pay raises. That's the reason I left. I left with a good report and there is no reason why they wouldn't give me a good report.
Shift lead (Former Employee) – Brecksville, OH – September 1, 2019
The time I was at work every thing and everyone was in a good mood we got the job done and work Ed well as a team . Even when the plant was under stressful conditions we pulled together and made it through tough times and and left work at the same time knowing we had a great day at work
ROUTE DRIVER (Former Employee) – Jackson, MS – September 1, 2019
There was a lot of work to be done. Pay was not up to par in terms of dangers of the job. But the pay was at the time better than most route jobs. This location was under Cintas brand at first and it was great. Then it was taken over by Shred-it then strericycle. If you ever been apart of multiple ownership changes then you know that a lot of key things that keep turnover low goes out the window low went
Transportation Supervisor (Former Employee) – Central Valley, CA – August 16, 2019
I served as transportation supervisor for over 2 years at Shred it. Finally got tired of the lackadaisical management and lack of accountability for success. The District Manager focused more on having a good time with the office staff then effectively managing or supporting his supervisors. The environment was a bit toxic if your were not a long time, and the management team did not hold anyone accountable
CSR (Current Employee) – Brecksville, OH – July 30, 2019
I've been with Shred it for a handful of years. The days are long. The work is hard. I don't mind either of those things. At my particular location, my supervisors/management are really cool. Great guys. The trucks are newer. The other drivers are cool. When we are fully staffed, things run pretty smooth. The problem is, we struggle to stay fully staffed. Part of it is we hire guys that just don't like the hard labor. Bending, climbing, lifting, pushing, pulling, etc... It takes its toll on you. After 10+ hrs of a heavy day, you're dead haha. The micromanagement belt is starting to tighten. New software to track your days. Cameras installed in the trucks. Tons of meetings and changes since I've been here (more than ever as of recent) . A big reason guys don't stay is the pay just doesn't make sense for the kind of work we do. You can rake in some overtime which helps ease the pain a bit. The benefits are where Shred it seems to hang their hat. Vacation time, sick time, paid holidays off, health, dental, vision, 401k, company paid life insurance, short/long term disability etc... 4 day work week is nice. Overall, it's a good job if you're willing to work. If it wasn't for the optional overtime, the amount of vacation I've accumulated, and the 4 day work week, I don't think I would have stuck around. I am always looking for something better but I've found nothing that would make me leave. At this point, ive been around long enough to get some raises and more vacation time. "The devil you know is better than the devil you don't". Every job has its downsides. I've had waaaaay worsemore... jobs. This is definitely the best job I've had.less
