If you want to get out alive, run for your life!
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Iowa – July 17, 2016
Pro-Build is an absolute abysmal company to work for. There is no sense of direction from the top and it trickles down all the way to the regional and store managers. Every few years the company is being sold to another company.
At the store I work for, the legal laws and policies are only implemented on a convenience basis. The manager and other salesmen would use bully tactics against the drivers in order to get their orders out.
At Pro-Build, the salesmen are the stars of the company. They start out at higher wages than the qualified drivers and on top of that, the salesmen earn commission unlike the drivers. It's not uncommon to have the salesmen triple the drivers on yearly wages.
The manager also likes to tell employees about future promotion's coming up in order to keep them around, but then never acts on the promotions keeping the workers in a purgatory limbo. Going in line with no promotions, the wage increase is minimal at best. Some years there were no wage increase for the drivers.
All in all, do yourself a favor if you're a driver and do not waste your time applying for this. If you're a salesman, then this is the perfect fit for you as long as you have no morals. If you do have morals and are a salesman, look elsewhere because Pro-Build loves to toe the legality line (tax evasion and fraud I'm talking about at you!)
Mostly easy to request off work, the other drivers and yard staff I directly worked with were great.
Low wages, no promotions, lack of initiative in management.
