Its a joke!
Delivery Helper (Former Employee) –  Snohomish, WANovember 15, 2017
The company was doing really good until Beacon Roofing Supply bought it over. Beacon is a joke! Low salary and lack of care for their employees. They will let people go even though they need all the help they can get and by that, over work their employees all the way to the ground. They will not give a raise if any at all.
Pros
Discounts, overtime
Cons
Lack of employee care, salary, management

I enjoyed working there until I was laid off.
Accounts Receivable/Payable Specialist (Former Employee) –  McKinney, TXNovember 9, 2017
Enjoyed my time there. Nice people. Management needs to be more concerned with their employees and less about buying more companies. The employees work hard and do not receive compensation for doing so. Company gave tiny raises and sometimes none at all.

Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Denver, COSeptember 18, 2017
Great Place to work. Hours are not so good for people with families. Long hours during busy season, could be anywhere from 12-15 hours a day. They also like to run lean instead of hiring extra people.

stay away , long hours not fun
Driver (Current Employee) –  PennsylvaniaJuly 1, 2017
Upper Management in this place is a joke , takes forever to replace workers that have quit , they rely on the remaining workers to pick up the slack. Local mgmt. is ok . Company is too competitive with other branches , need to be more efficient in deliveries ( i.e. don't drive 60 miles to make delivery when there is a branch 5 miles away from jobsite ) Beacon does not pay all employees on the same scale .low starting pay
Pros
lots of OT
Cons
low starting wage, lousy benefits, to many chiefs not enough indians

driver (Former Employee) –  pghApril 28, 2017
Stay away. management looks out for family members only. Be very careful who you voice complaints to. You may be talking to a relative of a family member in management! They will promote their family members even though not qualified for position!
Pros
very few
Cons
horrible management and favoritsm

Assistant Branch Manager
Assisant Branch Manager/ Safety Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Warrendale, PAFebruary 4, 2016
Some of the work environment is positive and most co-workers get a long well. For the sales numbers, most are unrealistic depending on the market conditions. Managers sometimes feel more like baby sitters than managers. The hardest part of the job is trying not to compete with ourselves (other locations). The one thing that I do enjoy about this job is the other mid-level employees.
Pros
Comradery
Cons
Incentives are not really incentives.

Always on the run driving from customer to customer.
Outside Sales (Current Employee) –  Santa Ana, CaOctober 19, 2015
Good people to work with. I came from manufacturing to distribution and it is very different. More pressure and more micro-management in distribution. Management is a little green and needs improvement. It is all about the numbers and when you meet your numbers they want more. Over all it is a good place to work. The branch level works well and seems to be a family oriented work space.
Pros
They pay your gas and you get a car allowance
Cons
Drive a lot and use your own personal vehicle

Daily interaction with customers & employee needs and good conversations.
Warehouse Lead/ Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXApril 6, 2015
This was a fast paced environment with taking customer order's and helping them load there trucks.
I learned to listen to there need's and concerns and to reassure them I would do my best to help them.
The management was average.
The hardest part of the job was having to call a customer and let them know that there product did not ship on time.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the different people and all the conversation's.
