Regional Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 25, 2018
If you are just starting off you will be fine learning the ropes at this company but if you have any aspirations to grow beyond your hired positions they will hire outside the company first for management.
RECEPTIONIST AND COUNTER SALES (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – January 3, 2018
The manager was awesome! However some of the other employees could be quite difficult to work with and he seemed to be oblivious to that. Which would make things extremely frustrating at time. Everyone on the sales floor seemed like they thought someone was out to get them. I am unaware of whether or not maybe they were making commission and felt annoyed that I would make sales without being paid commission (unknowingly) or if they felt threatened by that, I don't know but they could be very difficult and I think with that said the lack of communication made the environment poor! And there were some of the employees on the corporate side that would be down right rude for NO reason what so ever. It seemed that people were extremely stressed most of the time which made it a volatile work place but if you could get past what the other people think of you and the stress it was pretty great!
free lunches on fridays, breakfast on weekends, great health benefits, awesome managers
warehouse was poorly ran, NO Flexibility with time, favortism seemed to be an issue, and people tend to speak about you behind your back, No one would approach you directly with issues.
Summer is rough, winter is slow. Customers never appreciate you until you prove that you're willing to go out of your way for them. Decent pay, with zero benefits if you're "part" full-time (full summer, part spring)
If your planning to move forward in the company this is not the place as well as the management is not good. Furthermore you see people come and go in the company so it tells you just how things are run there.
Benefits of Insurance
They promise you things you never get and cut your overtime.
IT Support Specialist & Helpdesk Technician (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 13, 2015
Terrible compensation, decent benefits. ESOP program but not employee centered in practice. No incentives, no raises, no appreciation. The HR department is a complete joke. Very disorganized and overall rusty place.
Laid back atmosphere, though they are becoming more demanding without raising compensation. Most co-workers have decent social skills and are fun to work with.
Laid back atmosphere, job security, benefits, work/life balance
The benefits are great. You learn so much about what you do which You can really use at home. It can be really fun depending on location. The pay is ok but you have to know how to negotiate.
This is an overall good company and they usually keep their company in the loop about what's new. Around the summer, work gets hectic and busy and raises are a sensitive subject. Corporate is located right in Houston. Overall it's a really good company. Note with almost every company, there is drama so be prepared.
Free breakfast and lunch sometimes. Awesome benefits and that feeling of importance to the company
Being a part of a Winning Team is always great. Together we make it a productive day and have the pleasure of helping customers. Duties include cleaning and maintaining the warehouse. Deliver supplies to surrounding cities while maintaining a well rounded atmosphere for all. Load and unload delivery truck and stock supplies. Fill orders for customers and or deliver when needed. Trouble shoot problems for customer and help solve them. Our management is always on hand and willing to answer any questions when needed. My co-workers are family, we all look out for one another and work as a TEAM. The hardest part of my job is not being able to place an order for a customer because we don't have in stock. The most enjoyable part of the my job is knowing that I can always learn something new.
Easy work with a double work yourself work enviornment while dealing with an ADD co-worker and manager
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) – Lafayette, LA – June 14, 2014
Stock freight that you have received while checking in incoming packages or freight. Sometimes help with customers in the store and also helping the customers that roam round the warehouse because their tired of waiting on a representative. Learn most from the assistant manager who takes her time to show you things, works as a team player, likes things to be orderly, and does not get frustrated when you ask her questions. The manager starts a million task and finishes only three but he is walking out the door come clock out time. He also sits and talks with customers about the weather, rainbows, baseball, and ect. for half an hour to an hour. Grant it he is the boss so he can do what he wants. It only becomes an issue when it comes to the work he says he is going to take care of and no one else knows how to or what to do with the stuff and it ends up piling up for months even years and sometimes even getting forgotten about. The hardest part of the job was knowing your doing your best to help inventory to be correct and organizing things so their easily accessible and your co-worker and manager would unravel your hard work so you ended up having to do everything at least twice. Also there was no communication even after meetings about communication needing to be better. There was no teamwork when something was wrong or missing everyone was quick to point fingers and criticize. but the worst was that the managers and co-workers would preach customer service and most the customers were helping themselves. The most enjoyable parts was the pay and benefits were decent and the assistantmore... managers guidance, help, and morale. Also the job itself if you did not have to deal with the panic and unorthodox environment was overall easy.less
Customers are friendly, assistant manager helpful, flexible lunch schedule
Double working, panic environment, lack of communication, lack of staying or even wanting to be organized
A typical day at Johnson Supply is that I never knew what to expect from day to day, because work load changed from season to season. There were periods of down time and periods of time when it was very busy. I learned a great deal of knowledge about the air conditioning and heating trade. Safety is the most important aspect of my job but can also be challenging. The most enjoyable aspect of my job would have to be my work schedule.
Typical day: arrive at work 15 minutes before schedule to prepare and over see duties for that day. Begin inventory process of received items from truck. Once items have been recieved, proper stocking and organization of items were done. Other duties consist of customer service (answering phones, payment process and customer instore help finding proper parts and items.
What I learned: Organization skills, Customer service skills, problem solving skills, Leadership skills, Air Conditions knowledge (parts, names, tools and functions).
Management: For the most part was good. Lack of concistience and leadership skills. Multiple store managers and lack of Managerial presence in the store.
Co-Workers: Hard working and very good people. Great teachers and patience!
Hardest part of Job: High customer traffic and very little breaks.
Most enjoyable: Returning customers (friendship), air conditiong knowledge.
401k, great medical insurance
poor management, low pay and very unorganized as a compnay whole.
start the day at 7am, typical day is review all emails and or in coming phone calls and prioritize based on that......work in cubes so not much interaction......nothing hard i cannot handle.....enjoyable part is to know customer is happy.....with overall experience.
