Big company
Would like to have made a career at Beacon. Unfortunately, consolidations of stores, delayed pricing of materials to the field, and questionable management decisions made for a turbulent culture.
Pros
Should have been final company to work for
Cons
Aquired Allied and their management team took over

Good pay, but at the cost of stress and worrying about stepping on toes
Pay and benefits are decent. Medical was average. Managerment was poor and insufficient. You will have to work long hours and move heavy material by hand, with little to no help. But don't get hurt doing it. Because the manager will throw you under the bus for it. Everyone expect a few people are back stabbers, looking to due you over. You are expected to build, load , deliver, and unload your material. Witch takes time but to them you are still too slow. If an issue arises with a senior co-worker, the manager will side with that co-worker and transfer you with warning. Even if it's a longer commute, no room for advancement unless their want to advance you. Truck dispatching, can't even read a map, let alone get scheduling right. Most of the time you work without take a mandatory 30 min break, and get yelled out for doing so. But the scheduling doesn't let you take a break. I've made deliveries three times at separate times, too the same address in one day because of dispatch. You are a number to them that is all. If something happens to the truck or equipment it's your fault. And you have to deal with the repercussions from the DOT. They won't take responsibility for maintenance or equipment failure.
Pros
Decent pay.
Cons
Poor management, ok medical, constantly looking over your shoulder

Manager is gutless
They don't value their employees. The manager will smile in your face and then will fire you without having enough respect to tell you to your face. You break your back for them and they throw you out like trash

Fun place
Can be a great place to work if management would listen to there employees about things. Management needs to know what is going on, because at times they have no clue what's going on. Change of management would make everyone happy and a better place to work.
Pros
Overtime
Cons

Great place to work for
Beacon is the best company to work for. It's challenging. I love to compete & i have worked for numerous roofing distribution companies in the past. ABC supply being one of them. ABC is the largest roofing distribution in the nation & Beacon is # 2. I worked for ABC from 1991-2006 & Beacon is by far the best company to work for. I would like to eventually manage my own Branch at Beacon. I would start loading roofs & work my way up again if that's what it's going to take to get my foot in the door.
Pros
Atmosphere, people & challenging
Cons
No cons

Seems to be getting utsourced
The A/P department has an intelligent group of ladies, but the policies and procedures are highly unclear. The managers do not communicate. There is a lot of passive aggressive behaviours and practices.

When one hurts, they ALL stab you in the back!!!!!!!
The most two-faced people that I have ever worked with in my life.
They smile in your face when they need you, but stab you numerous times in the back when it's to their benefit

Poor work life balance
Management is good, and the culture is good. However, not very family friendly with work hours and expectations.
Hardest part of the job is that your always expected to do more than your job. Long hours and not very family friendly. Behind the times in benefits and working from home.
Pros
managment
Cons
work life balance
