Anixter gave me a great opportunity to get early experience.
OEM Business Intern (Former Employee) – Glenview, IL – February 6, 2018
The summer before attending college Anixter International gave me the opportunity to intern. I was extremely appreciative of the opportunity they provided. Employees in the OEM division took time out of their days to teach my co-intern and me about what they did. My boss, James Martin, represented the company fantastically by staying in contact with us every working day. He was very enjoyable to work with. There are many other people I could mention. Overall I thought Anixter was a great place to work.
Company is trying to go too many directions with no clarification. There are positives there, company is good at feeding employees during meetings and making sure employees are well trained in the product of sale. Most days are dealing with issues with customers and internally. Management only drove monthly numbers and did not praise employees for good months only moved onto what you will do next month in revenue.
Warehouse Supervisor (Current Employee) – Corona, CA – July 30, 2017
Good Work Life Balance, Not much room to advance unless you are willing to relocate, Job pays a little above what your normal warehouse associates would make but that is only to start off because raises are not god.
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – April 1, 2014
Anixter is a wonderful company to work for. They have a lot of benefits and great people. The only complaint I have would be that it is a large challenge to please customers, coworkers and management. It is a very tight community and difficult for a new person to try and break into.

Working at Anixter was very rewarding. The team members were very helpful and impressed me by the way concern was shown when a member was ill or how everyone rejoiced at sucesses. The management team were awesome and extremely helpful. Always willing to train and provide advice on how one could improve and advance within the company.
