Troubled manager. Can be very rude and demanding over nothing but forcing long hrs per week. Calls ahead before reset is over to verify that your ready to be on shift or disciplinary action would be taken due to short on staff.
Pros
Fairly new equip
Cons
Heavy on hours

Takes forever to get a raise

these guys would hire any moron off the street, management sucks, dispatch is a joke, and some of the foreman's don't have a clue of what's going on most of the time, its all favoritism here. If u like to bend over and be on your knees then this is the place for you, other than that don't even waste your time with this company
Pros
none
Cons
Lot's of backstabbing, snitching and too much animosity

Danger was very real working here, but we all knew our backs were covered by each other and the company. They have extensive training and first aid, safety gear that is state of the art. Everyone there was aware of everything that was going on at all times. You felt very comfortable working there.
The most enjoyable part of the day was a job well done!

Supervision has no knowledge. Told to use particulate filters for H2S gas job. Also going to remove tripod for confined space entry on top entry frac tank. No appreciation for work you do. Unorganized. No fairness in any aspect. If you don’t suck up to boss u will not succeed. No maintenance done on any trucks. No gear there to do the jobs you have to do. Supervision is unqualified and treats workers with no respect. Came out and said he was only one that matters on the crew. Very poor leadership. Worst place I’ve ever worked from management perspective.
Pros
None
Cons
Supervision

My summary of working with Clean Harbours was a great experience. The only reason I left for work elsewhere was because of lack of work there. I would definitely go back there to work if there was work available and if they were hiring.

I was hired by Clean Harbors 2 years ago. Class 1 Driver. Training was terrible. It was so rushed to put me in a truck and haul to landfill with waste from plant. Verbal abuse was commonplace at Riley Landfill.
