Poor Upper Management
Customer Sales/Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, KSApril 26, 2018
Location I worked at had great people. Upper management made terrible decisions. Instead of taking care of your major customers they focused way to much on brining in way to many small fish. Major customers became agitated and bought less. Not a very good business model set in place. Compensation for the work you do it no where near what it should be.

Overall good company
Service Center Manager (Current Employee) –  San Marcos, CAApril 19, 2018
Overall good company to work for but the compensation is a hit or miss depending where you work. Good benefits and good culture. A little bit old school and not technology friendly.

Good place to work
Inside Sales (CSSR) (Current Employee) –  Columbus, MSApril 11, 2018
A good place to work. Good pay for the job requirements as well as good insurance and benefits. Some times fast paced and multi-tasking is required but overall more of a regular routine. Even though I say routine, the job is not the same ole' same ole' every day. Some days are more challenging than others and makes it interesting.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Short handed

Great place to work!
Corporate Manager (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHMarch 30, 2018
It's been just over a year and half since I have joined Applied Industrial and the company and the culture have been exactly what I had hoped for.
There is a lot of work to be done and I am enjoying being part of a collaborative culture where we can get a lot accomplished.

A do a bit here and there (Current Employee) –  Florence, KYMarch 29, 2018
The guy below me is a crybaby snitch. His job is easy. He is just lazy. I'm sure his next employer will be thrilled to have him aboard. His pedo stache kinda freaks us out.
Pros
Hour lunches

Very stressful for the amount of compensation offered.
Sales Specialist (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 29, 2018
Nationally Applied is in a position to dominate in its space. In Chicago and the surrounding area they have a struggle on their hands as competitive forces tend to have a deleterious affect on the quality of the decision making process.

Organic growth is constrained company wide and the reasons become apparent to anyone either in the stream or wake of the decision making process.
Over reliance on technological fixes to overcome deficiencies in high quality decision making leaves a gaping maw between the business plan and the subsequent results of that plan. Execution of the plan is what suffers.

Typical CS experience but a company that undervalues employees
Customer Service and Sales Rep (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAMarch 29, 2018
Typical day was spent processing orders, quotes, creating PO's, talking to customers at the sales counter and working on any delegated projects.

Management unfortunately wasn't concerned with helping their employees grow and there is very little room to advance. The infrastructure here is built around the idea of working 10-20 years before a single advancement, but without the typical incentive of pension or time vested. Very much a "good old boys" company in how they approach business and with handling of employees.

Does not feel like you work for an industry leader but rather a dinosaur that can't keep up with the times.
Pros
Slow pace
Cons

Short Run No Fun
Customer Sales and Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Wyoming, MIMarch 6, 2018
Was with Applied for over one year as a sales and service rep. Great entry level position to build experience in sales and customer service. The company overall is pretty good with several great benefits and learning experiences.

This branch is very busy and consists of a lot of unreal expectations and is a sell, sell, sell style environment. The training if you can call it "training" is non existent for the over 5 million products sold. This causes things to be stressful and new people ussually disappoint customers. Upper management then blames the employees. Several corporate viruses and a slow system add to the stress. Inaccurate descriptions and pictures on the website just add to the nonsence. Too many responsibilities and most employees get burned out but are required to suck it up, with no support and get micromanaged every 60 seconds.

The current SCM is great. The GM, where do I start. Disrespectful, no leadership at all, very difficult to work for, talks down to employees. All about the money. Same things another reviewer said. But money talks so they won't be replaced.
Pros
Free lunches, experience, customer & employee relationships
Cons
Micro management, toxic environment, disrespectful leadership, unreal expectations

Worst experience ever!
Service Center Manager (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHMarch 6, 2018
Absolutely no training with their new SAP program, no leadership whatsoever in the company! Very unorganized, treated employees like 3rd class citizens. Interview was absolutely not what the job description represents.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Florence, KYFebruary 12, 2018
I have nothing to say. There are good things and not so good things (like anywhere) but I am thankful to have a job. I don't think it is appropriate to write a review at this time.

Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Davenport, IAFebruary 3, 2018
Setting up your weekly schedule, and following up on what was scheduled. Work closely with clients to provide solutions to problem areas. Managing time is the toughest part of the job as you need to prioritize tasks that need to be performed.
Pros
money/bonuses, good atmosphere

on call 24/7, huge amounts of paperwork, many t-cons

Great place to learn about several industrial parts for maintenance. I would pick orders for specific companies and deliver them in a timely manner. Only think hard was being alone most of the time.
