Fun Place.. If it's for you!
Sales Trainee (Current Employee), Minneapolis, MNJuly 10, 2014
Pros: great management, laid-back atmosphere
Cons: long hours, not a good work-life balance
I enjoy working at Ferguson as a sales trainee, but some office drama can get old. Also, the long long hours make for very little work-life balance. Management is great, and there are a lot of opportunities for advancement, since they try to only promote from within.

Warehouse Clerk (Current Employee), Tamarac, FLJuly 4, 2014
The job is stressful and physically taxing. The management has no clue as to how a business should be run. I wouldn't recommend this job to anyone.

Supportive environment with a focus on growth and development of its people.
Manager (Current Employee), Newport News, VAMay 28, 2014
Pros: supportive environment, locations everywhere, recognition
Cons: we have to be there for our customers, which can mean long hours.
Ferguson is about careers, not jobs. In my experience, they believe in their people and give them the tools they need to take their careers into their own hands. The work is hard, but the payoff is great. I love that Ferguson is a large company that can provide all of the benefits a large company can provide, but at the local level can still feel like – more... a small business. Each location has its own feel and is enmeshed in its own community, but we all focus on the larger common goals of the organization as a whole. I also respect the fact that our CEO started as a Trainee, working in the warehouse and on the counter. Since he has been there, as the majority of our executives have been, it makes me believe he wouldn't ask anything of his associates that he wouldn't do himself. It's a great, healthy company that recognizes and rewards hard work from its people. – less

Stressful and poorly managed
Customer Retail Specialist (Former Employee), Bluffton, SCMay 20, 2014
Pros: they feed you well
Cons: everything!! just by pass this employer all together!!
I worked for Ferguson for a couple years and found it to be stressful and poorly managed. There were a lot of promises as far as increase of support staff. However, much of this never manifested. Managers constantly talked about staff amongst other staff members. They have a high turn over rate and they DO NOT train effectively. Much of what I learned – more... was trial and error. They brag that's the best way to learn however, I learned that the bulk of the people that worked there had NO college education and more than likely didn't understand the new systems and technology that had been implemented. – less

A small commerical plumbing warehouse that I very much enjoyed.
Receiving Clerk (Former Employee), Sonora, CAMay 7, 2014
As I had previous experience with helping customers with home plumbing. I wanted to reach out and become more involved with commercial plumbing and sales. Unfortunately with a slow economy, they were forced to lay me off. It was a fun opportunity and I was glad to have the chance.

Productive and growing company
Receiving Associate (Current Employee), Waterloo, IAMay 6, 2014
Pros: bonuses and great health care and benefits
A typical day would be usually unloading trucks (floor loads) and then receiving plumbing parts in on the dock or in other areas of the building. You learn how to receive in products, use the computer program to check variances for each vendor and how to work together as a team. Your fellow employees may be or can become good friends. Hardest part of – more... the job is receiving in the metal loads sometimes. Best part about job is venturing out to other areas of the building to receive in products. – less

Ferguson is a large company so can offer many of the benefits that a smaller company cannot.
Purchasing Agent (Regional) (Current Employee), 91766April 28, 2014
A typical day would be to arrive and jump right into the tasks at hand.
I have learned a number of things that are important to Ferguson.
Management is a very diverse group, with different views and expectations.
I work with a diverse group of fellow associates and personalities as Ferguson is a very large company.
The most enjoyable part of the job – more... would be the relationships that I have built up over the years. – less

Ok place to work
Inside Sales (Current Employee), united StatesApril 1, 2014
Pros: pay is decent, great way to learn supply chain management
Cons: long hours, many things to remember to process orders correctly
Very fast paced work day. Most days go by very quickly but are long. Great way to learn buying and selling things. Management does a good job for the most part but at my branch, policies seem to be inconsistently enforced. My biggest gripe would be that there seems to be a "I know best" attitude with management at my branch. Other branches could differ. – more... My co-workers are fun to work with.

I'd say the hardest part of the job is learning the computer systems used and learning how to properly process customer orders. There's a few different ways to process orders and about a million different rules for each method. Also, because of the way Ferguson's branches and DC networks are organized, it never feels like you're working towards a greater good for the company, it's almost as if you're in competition with other parts of the company. I could be wrong but that's been my impression so far. – less

Great place to work
DC Utility Float (Current Employee), Fulton, MSMarch 24, 2014
Pros: monthly cookouts and quarterly incentive based bonuses
Cons: dirt and some workers have to work outside even in the rain
I enjoy working for Ferguson. I drive a forklift and move pipe all day. Management is always willing to help you and the faster and harder you work, the sooner you can go home but if you want your 40hrs a week, there is always something else to do.
