It would depend what your goals are, but Shred it can be what you want it to be for you, do lots of research as to what you want and make sure they are a right fit for you.
Pros
Very good wages
Cons
Always adding to your responsibilities.

Poorly managed. Co-workers are childish. No room to grow. The expectations are unrealistic and there is no concern for employee safety and welfare. They will have no problem sending you out in a snow storm with a faulty truck, and still ask you why you didn't complete your route (even if it was out of your control). Run, far away.
Pros
Working alone
Cons
High expectations, poor work culture, poorly managed, long hours, micromanaged

Ever changing corporate landscape and leadership makes things difficult. Salary is low but earning potential is very high. Would recommend working there but must be extremely motivated.

Good place to work for a young guy fresh out of high school or a new driver looking for work experience...not recommended for people that dont like a good physical workout each day .

One of the worst managed companies I ever worked for . The management was unfortunatelly completely clueless as to what the challenges of customer security representatives were and thus were consistently unable to assist the drivers to succeed . I am very happy not to be involved with them and if I had to doit allover again ?? I would never do so !!

Do you like not knowing what you will be doing everyday? Do you like not knowing what equipment( Truck) you will be tasked to use each day? On site or off site trucks. Do you like not knowing how to operate said trucks and power attachments because they are all different? Will it work? Will I get my route done? Do you like not knowing where anything is kept at each clients location 18 to 25 times per day? Then you will love this job. This is all learn as you go because there is 10000 clients the learning curve never ends. But the pay rate does, nor does it prepare you for a better career elsewhere.

They need to be more organized and they need to change the management group or to asked them to change their strategies also they need to be more loyal with their vice employees, for example, I worked with them for one year and my department moved to the USA and i tried to join with them in the others department but I can't Although I was very active employee.
Pros
full time job
Cons
loyality

This job is a good starting sales job if you want B2B experience. If you have any other aspirations or goals, this company is not going to fulfill it. No matter how well you achieve or sell. Company as a whole is in a huge mess. Limited number of spots to advance. Upper management is extremely comfortable in their spots and have lost their sense to uplift employees. Ethics is always questioned and always a battle between operations and sales. This job is great for flexibility, learning B2B sales but that’s about it. Compensation plan has been changed for the worse. There’s is a ceiling with this organization which can be demotivating for most. There are many other sales organizations that are healthier and more uplifting to work at. I would definitely recommend continuing your search elsewhere.

Completely disappointed with the company, it is all about how much money, you can make for the company. The favouritism is ridiculous, terrible management. Very disappointed in my decision to work for them.

Shred-It offers great potential for growth and a very capable management team that has a vested interest in your development and success. The culture of the workplace is laid back while still holding its sales apparatus accountable for its targets while not having these expectations exhausted upon its staff. Working here will open doors to an organization that continually seeks further growth.

I enjoyed my time working at shred it for the most part. I feel they could have done better training for the new worker instead of just throwing them into the mix.
