Various Management Positions (Current Employee) – Blemont, NC – July 12, 2016
There is no work-life balance, compensation is terrible, and leadership is nonexistent since the CEO retired last year. Advancement is only for those who are related to managers, or are part of the Good-Old-Boys network that formed the company years and years ago. IDG is being merged with Hagermeyer, which seems like they may be an OK company, but avoid IDG.
Pay is usually on time, if sometimes incorrect
Misery and low morale abound, just ask anyone below a Director-level
the company is very well manage and i would put in a good word to some one whos looking for ajob in their company.

Field Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Greenville, SC – July 10, 2015
I enjoyed working as an inside sales representative and talking on the phone with the customers. challenges were administered on a daily basis and it was my job to insure the customer received their order and avoid stock outages. My coworkers and I had the #1 branch for many years with MSC and that was a joy being a part of that team.
Integrated Supply Chain Site Manager (Current Employee) – USA – April 7, 2015
A typical day involves lots of moving parts, meetings and excitement. I am involved in aspects of my customer's business from the tools and safety items used during production to strategic long term cost savings projects. I have to be innovative, hands-on and creative to meet the ever changing demands of a fast-paced manufacturing operation. The fun never stops for someone with a mindset to succeed! The compensation is great and the benefits are outstanding. But being the only one on-site that does what I do...taking time off can be a challenge. If it's attention you want...you'll get it as a Site Manager.

Industrial Distribution Group has been home for me the past 7 years. It has grown exponentially year after year and the leadership keeps all associates informed through continuous education and training opportunites. It is a large company with a small company feel meaning every associates matters!
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – West Chester, OH – September 3, 2014
Short days typically from 9-PM. I have learned a lot about the shipping industry from receiving to shipping. Management is alright. friendly but the two managers they have tend to clash sometimes. The people are friendly and easy to get along with. There really isn't a hard part to this job and the most enjoyable part of this job is the friendliness.
Management/Human Resources needs a serious upgrade
customer service (Former Employee) – West Chester Office – March 20, 2014
Management rules with an iron fist, putting fear in employees, upper management is the puppet master to lower manager, Lower management is the puppet, IDG use to be a good company, but when they started losing money employees started to jump ship before they were laid off, the Titanic is going down and its called IDG. If your thinking of working at IDG you better think again.
management, human resources. upper mangement, pay, benefits
Nice company to work for. It is a very progressive corporation.
Telesales Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – West Chester Ohio – January 12, 2015
I was hired in to help develop a telesales department. In the beginning there was not a typical day. We had many organizational meetings with management and suppliers as we developed the department. I was continuously learning new products, impletementing new sales programs and systems to make the deparment successful. My co workers were helpful and friendly. Once the department was up and running I developed a strong industrial customer base and sold the companies products. The hardest part of the job was implementing and learning the systems we decided to use and working the kinks out of them. The most enjoyalbe part of the job was to see the department develop into a successful telesales department and developing customer relationships.

Full Stock Room Managed Site Associate (Former Employee) – Benson, MN – May 4, 2012
I worked here for about a year and was treated very poorly. It is hard to get any kind of promotion. Harrassment happened in the work place and there was no consequences. They don't care about thier enployees or clients. I definately DO NOT recommend this job. Worst year of my life!
a couple free lunches
treated poorly, harrassment not taken seriously, poor employee management
This is an wholesale industrial supply selling tools & services to major industries. I learned how to negotiate purchasing contracts and source large customer contracts. The hardest part of the job was trying to keep up with so much business. The best part was being awarded the business that took months of preparation to get. Worked hard & played hard!

Field Sales Representative (Current Employee) – West Chester, OH – September 16, 2013
Not a bad company to work for. They allow you to work from wherever you are in the country. Management doesn't know how the local markets are and they give you too many tasks to manage. Many great business opportunities go by the wayside because we fail to be competitive to local markets.
IDG gave me an opportunity and let me grow within the company, they gave me training when I asked and all the people I had contact with from everyone at corporate to sites were great and were a great team.
opportunities for growth and training
not having enough sites in sc for me to continue working
