Tax Director - Compliance & Transfer Pricing (Current Employee) –  Bristol, CTMay 3, 2017
I enjoy working for Barnes Group. They are a truly philanthropic company, with a focus on employees. The company has been around for 160 years, but they still know how to change with the times.

Old Company, Old Structure
Customer Sales Specialist (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALFebruary 8, 2016
Typical day consisted of re-stocking customer bins with class C maintenance products, ordering new products where necessary and selling maintenance and industrial products to clients.

Immediate supervisor was solid, but the further up the management, the more spotty the communication and direction. Co-workers were easy to work with.

Hardest part of the job was moving heavy boxes of nuts, bolts, etc. in the blazing Alabama summer heat.

Most enjoyable part of the job was when the day ended.
Pros
Steady work
Cons
Pay

great place to work
Business Development Specialist (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMNovember 16, 2015
Very good place to work, the employees/ management do everything they can to make you profitable.

Hardest part of the job is to motivate yourself to get up and work. You get out of the job what you put in to it.

Bad experience

Could not trust anyone to do their part. Management never had your back. Hard to work within those conditions. The dynamics of the relationship between sales and ops were very flawed.
Pros
A few partners that worked hard with me.
Cons
Really did not like much of anything about that job.
