Use to be a great company years ago...now high-stress with no recognition
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Denver, COAugust 17, 2017
Tons of broken processes. No fix in sight.
Constant turn over. Not the way it was 7-10 years ago.
"Good 'Ol Boy" mentality with some of the higher up decision makers.

Great company experiencing significant transition
Professional (Former Employee) –  Lake Forest, ILAugust 16, 2017
Strong, committed corporate culture has been impacted by poor management and rapidly changing priorities. Managers are either paralyzed to make decisions or make them too quickly without any real assessment of the potential impacts or risks. As a result, teams spend years working on the same challenges without any actual productive resolution.
Pros
Benefits, sense of community, company pride
Cons
management, work to support strategy

Lots of changes - Micro managing metrics
Sales (Current Employee) –  Southern CaliforniaAugust 11, 2017
All activity is around Salesforce.com and measuring metrics. Seems like there is more discussion around what people are doing and less around productive work to drive sales. The balance in now very skewed toward measurable activities and less around value added work that drives sales. I understand the desire to want to measure but the pendulum has swung way too far. I hope someday it will swing back toward a reasonable balance point.
Pros
Respected brand
Cons
Sales roles are all about measuring activity metrics

Good workplace with awesome supervisor
Cash processing administrator (Current Employee) –  Niles, ILAugust 11, 2017
I open mail and prep payments so they can be applied to customers accounts. I prep AP invoices to be scanned for our Ap department. I work on electronic payments so they can be applied to customer accounts.
I have an awesome supervisor that works with my availability. She is very approachable and open to communication.

Not what it used to be
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Lake Forest, ILAugust 11, 2017
Grainger was consistently one of the top places to work but the company has been in decline over the last 5 years. Constant reorganizations have caused a number of people to lose jobs and has created an unstable culture where people no longer matter.

Customer order filler
DC Associate (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MOAugust 10, 2017
Grainger asks that you meet numbers that can be extremely difficult to make when you are bounced around to different work stations. And then get on you when you have down time which if you are moved you will have down time getting from one area to another.
Pros
Great pay and benefits
Cons
Overworked with little appreciation for the work done and no advancement
