Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Port Coquitlam, B.C. – 4 January 2019
I recently worked as a driver for the Port Coquitlam, B.C. branch. While my local branch manager was great, head office lets the entire organisation down.
Twice they managed to mess up my pay & not get it into my bank account due to their own errors. Most functions of head office seem to be either outsourced or run on an automated system, which usually fails. When I did get to speak to a Human Being, I was told and I quote "we will not run a payroll just for you". I was told I would have to wait until the following pay period, which put me past the date of my required rent payment. When I pointed this out to head office, they could not care less.
The problem is that so many functions have been taken away from the local branch managers, that in many ways their hands are tied by the constraints of head office. In this case, the company is so large that head office often has no clue what is happening at local branches and seems not to care.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Saint John, NB – 6 November 2018
Stericycle is the worst company I’ve ever worked for; I was hired through Manpower and was informed that they would never ever lay us off or discontinue the job. But after only three weeks of training, they decided that we were no longer needed for this company ( as we ask for an extra week of training due to the fact that we didn’t feel ready to take calls). Thiefr training department sucks, 7 trainers for 4 new hirers —- too many chiefs not enough Indians run in the company. & once the new hires hit the four floor there was no backed up I have for them. I would never ever recommend this company for employment.
Lots of free breakfast foods, healthy fruit snacks.
Costumer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 29 September 2018
This company is a joke! they hire people but are out of the budget, how that's it works? Management is awful!, I was hired and I didn't receive any payment after 1 month and a half! and no one knew it the reason why I haven't been paid!
The supervisors are fairly good, however, one of them, he thinks he is working in a National Security office or C.I.A. or F.B.I. treating the people as slaves and making comments about accents, pronunciation and so on. I don't really recommend this company is so messy, in 11 months of full-time job the pest control went there 3 times because of the bed bugs!
The headsets are shared and 99% of them are broken! the company has no interest to get new ones! Managers are also not good enough, a few of them cut hours for no reason and going on vacation or holidays every 3 or 4 months, but if you ask for vacations, they fired you.
No way to go to the washroom, all of them are so dirty, and every second it will be discounted from your payments!
No HR office in Winnipeg location, which makes more difficult the contact for certificates or any other inquiry. salary is kinda good, benefits are fair, and all the people from the 4th floors they think they are gods or goddess! I HIGHLY NO RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY!
management, type of work, payment, cut of hours, hiring process
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 17 August 2018
the one good thing about the company is the benefits. the office in brampton sucks. the overtime is always available. everyone from the management right down is disjointed. would not even tell my enemy to work for this company. playing favorites is how they work in that office
Exceptional work environment providing challenging and rewarding work
Sr. Human Resources Manager (Bilingual) (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 10 September 2017
Stericycle is a great place to work and provides a great work environment for its Team Members. It is growing fast, has challenging work and the managers are always there to support you. I've had the pleasure of working at Stericycle for 10 + years and have watched my career grow along a steady trajectory.
Warehouse Worker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 August 2017
Operations manager is never there. There is no support for the warehouse supervisor allowing all warehouse staff to do what they want. Employees don't show up most days or call in sick all the time. There is no recognition for going above and beyond in this company even though they expect overtime hours to be put in. Management can not make up their minds about where waste is to go causing warehouse staff to make up multiple sets of paperwork for one load. Complete mismanagement on their part!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 21 June 2017
At a glance, this place seems like a great place to work. Do not let that fool you. I have never been employed by a place when supervisors will actually call down an employee while on an production floor, tell an employee that they do not like the sound of their voice, call a young lady trashy and the list goes on. This company used to be known as Fineline. I think Stericycle should really take a long hard look at their donor centre as soon enough they'll find themselves in the thick of a human rights claim
Vancouver branch is in my opinion, incredibly mis-managed. The culture is toxic and hostile.
Navigator / Reclamation (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 2 October 2016
The list of issues I encountered during my tenure is expansive and tedious. To go through it would resemble a complaining teenager after the first few jaw-dropping unethical / immoral / and sometimes illegal practices that are warranted here. Instead, the list of things that are a positive influence during one's stay here is much quicker to go through. There aren't any.
It was a High paced fun work environment were there was constant challenges to be met that kept you busy and the co-workers were fantastic. There was always something different to do so your day wasn't the exact same over and over again.
The manager was very discriminating person. Not welcomed diversity person, if you look different manager and some co-workers make fun of you and gossiping behind your back. After I worked hard for my first day, while I was looking forward going going back, they send me message telling me not to comeback it didn't workout for you. They are soo bad company to work with.
Some coworkers are good
Manager is discriminator and make fun of diversity person even though he is different
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 21 July 2016
I would be at work for 8am start by opening up the front office, make coffee, open up my computer and make sure the front office always looked clean and ready for clients. I answered the phone, responded to emails and did all the in coming and out going mail. I greeted the clients with the up most professional matter and I was very much liked.
