Inside Sales Representative / Warehouse Worker (Current Employee), San Antonio, TX – September 20, 2012
Pros: ability to learn most areas of the business at the local branch level.
I have worked for this company since May 2006. I have been mostly happy with the work, it is challenging, but not difficult. I originally started as a Temp warehouse worker, was hired on permanently six months later and was promoted to an Inside Sales trainee position five months after that.
I left the organization for a short time to pursue my education – more... on a full time basis. When I inquired about coming back to the company I was hired back as a temporary worker again. I have been working in both the shipping/receiving and Inside Sales areas of the business, gaining a broad area of skills and experience. – less
Credit Associate/Collector (Former Employee), Alpharetta, GA – August 21, 2012
Pros: incentive program, tuition reimbursment, team building exercises
Cons: strict environment, unplesant environment
Credit associates have a large volume of accounts and are expected to contact/work every one of them. They only have one or two managers in the department who aren't trying to run a sweat shop. The company isn't interested in anything other than productivity. The credit director is "unhinged". They have incentive programs so if you're able to work like – more... a robot, this is the job for you! Generally not a "happy" place to work. – less
Warehouse (Former Employee), Tampa, FL – June 10, 2012
Pros: good...depending on your branch
Cons: lot of back stabbing
Started of as a great company, then the operation manager transfered. Bunch of over-weight people more concerned with lunch than work. Branch manager has 4 or 5 favorites and buys everybody lunch daily on company credit card and then their lunch break lasts 3 hours while 3 or 4 people do all the work. My direct supervisor was a 300 pounder that I swear – more... watched the weather channel on his computer for 9 months and then when a supervisor would show their face he would jump out of his chair and act like the 3 people working aren't doing enough. They did have monthly contests like "The Biggest Loser", etc. Oh, and the Operation Manager that they hired (28 years old, fresh outta college)...he has a good golf swing. Always walking around the warehouse with his golf clubs. I honestly thought I was gonna retire there and this is how I went away feeling. Fake people is my best summary. – less
Buyer (Former Employee), Whitehall, MI – January 12, 2012
Pros: learn about purchasing, set priorities, make contacts
Cons: no teamwork, competitive
This is a good place to start if you are entering the job market or if you are wanting to transistion into an office environment. The culture is questionable at times, honesty with the client is not always encouraged. It is important to this company that you present a specific image even if you are not living up to that image in the services provided. I – more... learned a lot working for this company regarding interacting with others. This company does not promote a team environment but, it does promote competition among it's employees. – less
