Good Luck!
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCNovember 11, 2018
You are fortunate if you don’t become the subject of a Federal Government investigation. Google “Anixter” and “Department of Justice”. There was always sufficient “Incentives” paid to win contracts.
Pros
Plenty of bribe money
Cons
Federal Prison

Good place to work
Sales (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 14, 2018
Overall good place to work but opportunities for advancement outside of the corporate office are limited. The compensation is below average compared to other companies of this size. The company is top heavy and the leadership team is not diverse.

Nice place to work
Financial Analyst/Bonus Analyst (Former Employee) –  Glenview, ILSeptember 9, 2018
Anixter, Inc is a large company. The benefits are OK. There are opportunities to grow within the company. Anixter prefer to promote within rather than hiring from outside

Anixter isnt' what is used to be
IS Procurement Buyer (Current Employee) –  Glenview, ILAugust 16, 2018
Anixter is a mom and pop culture to a corporatized culture. Who you work for makes a big difference, but no job is secure that an extra buck can be made by outsourcing. Who you work for makes a difference as far as the day-to-day experience, but the focus is more on chasing money than quality of living.

In the main headquarters, money used to be spent on summer party and a holiday party. That's been pared down to a holiday meal served by the cafeteria staff.
Pros
informality built within the culture
Cons
it has become corporatized

Not a good company to work for.
Inside Sales - Industrial, Commercial, OEM (Former Employee) –  Jersey Village, TXAugust 7, 2018
Cold calls & sent e-mails daily to convince electrical contractors to sign on with Anixter.
No help from management to advance your career. Management says one thing & does another. Unreachable deadlines & quotas for the inside salesman. Good Medical Insurance. Fellow employees were easy to get along with.
Pros
Lunch & Learns with vendors who supplied lunch.
Cons
Management does not have your back.

Once great company falling prey to age
Senior Outside Contractor Sales (Current Employee) –  Lewisville, TXJuly 21, 2018

Cons
management is not in tune with the market

There are many people who have had long careers at Anixter. If you are one to contribute more then just your basic responsibilities then this company is not for you.
