A mixed bag with amazing positives and some strong negatives
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  AnonymousMarch 29, 2017
Generous company, with forward-minded management in so many ways. Often a great place to work. Yet, some toxic influences are allowed too much control and basically ignored by ownership.

I do not recommend this company
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Eugene, ORJanuary 26, 2017
The management is poor for training, sink or swim. If you want to move up you have to move to another branch. Great co-workers in this company, and they take care of you with lunches and gifts. If you care at all about good management this is not the company for you
Pros
1 hour lunches, 3 weeks of pto a year
Cons
Poor management, poor training

Good place to work for but back breaking and fairly unrewarding work
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAOctober 24, 2014
I worked as a warehouse worker. The job was exhausting and did not leave me much energy to do anything else. The pay was fine but it was not worth it in my opinion. Still, the company as a whole was an excellent place that took care of their employees.

Great training program
Outside Sales (Current Employee) –  Bend, ORDecember 23, 2012
The hardest part of the job is giving customers bad news when material that is needed on a project does not arrive as expected. The fun part about the job is building customer relationships and training them on new product. Management is fair and understands the day to day challenges. One of the biggest things I have learned is that you really do not understand another persons job until you have actually worked in that position day in and day out.
Pros
liberal in payed off holidays and pto time
Cons
at times does not seem very customer friendly with company policies.
