A typical work day at Elliott was very stressful, no one got along, the manager never showed up to work. Was always avoiding calls that i transferred to her. I was giving a promotion, but the manager just made up excuses as to why she could'nt give me the pay raise that came with the promotion.

Elliott is very fast paced and a growing company. If you want a place where you can just skate by and move up, this isn't the place for you. Hard work, effort, being part of a team, and wanting to learn are rewarded. If someone is willing to put forth the effort and learn the business they advance. This is no doubt a sales environment and is very customer service driven. Those who come in with a bad attitude don't seem to last long. I've heard people gripe about not being able to advance, but it always comes from those not willing to put in the effort to improve....usually those who hop from job to job and don't understand why they weren't promoted right to the top after 6 months to a year. Just like anything a person gets back what they put in. I'm not saying everything is perfect. The job can be intense because of the pace and there are co-workers who are easier to work with than others. Management is very involved and they care. I can't speak for every location, but the manager at my location will do anything for anyone and wants the best for everyone working there. I really working here!

The job itself is not difficult nor physically/mentally taxing, but you can (and most people do) go several years without a raise. Pay is not competitive at all. Health insurance not the best but not the worst if you don't regularly see doctors. Coworkers and managers are generally really laid back and make workdays go by quickly. Customers generally are easygoing and don't make big waves over small stuff.
no chance for advancement whatsoever ,,,clique type atmosphere where if youre not in the IN crowd you can basically forget about advancing..Mgmt consists on gentlemen in their early 20s with no experience in the industry..
Driver/Delivery (Former Employee) – Odessa, TX – September 17, 2018
Was told I was going to start at $15 an hour since I had previous driving experience but on date of hire I was started at $13 an hour.
The warehouse manager that took over had no business being a supervisor. Would scream at and rush certain people meanwhile would treat the people he liked in a normal manner.
I was threatened with termination if I didn't catch mistakes made by the pickers. If the customer order was big it would take more time to check it and I would be getting screamed at and rushed out the door sometimes being told to leave before I had even thoroughly checked everything.
We were supposed to keep a maintenance log of the trucks we drove but I don't know when they expected us to do checks because we were getting rushed out the door in the mornings, rushed out on afternoon deliveries and rushed to get off the clock in the evenings leaving no time for inspections.
Many times I got griped at because there was a specific ticket assigned to be delivered, yet, the order had not even been pulled. Dispatch never went out in the warehouse to look at what was ready and what wasn't. Kind of hard to deliver a ticket that had not even been pulled.
If you were assigned a new customer most of the time you were lucky to have a contact number, directions, coordinates, or a physical address. Many times I would have to google a company's phone number then get 4 or 5 different numbers before I got an on site contact. Some locations were easy to get to and some needed very specific directions. The sales people seemed like they flat out didn't care if we had directionsmore... or not but would throw a fit if items didn't get delivered and they didn't get their commission.
I always helped unload material on job sites and always made sure the proper material was being delivered and made it a point to go through the products I was delivering and show the site managers that what they ordered was there. Their typical complaints would be that the sales people doing their orders would order the wrong items.
I didn't start having issues with the company until I started finding out that new hires were starting off making more than me and certain people would get raises after only being there a short time, including people who did not have to operate heavy machinery or be on dangerous roads. Along with being taken off a route that I knew and loved and had no complaints from stores or customers. The morning wave deliveries dissolved due to changes made by the area manager, throwing things into absolute chaos.
I even trained a guy that was started at $15 an hour... I was making less than somebody I was training... how much sense does that make?
If you want to succeed at this location you have to suck up to the manager and the boss, if you express issues about not being able to make it to a location before they shut down for the day or issues with equipment or trucks they will just hound you and tell you if you don't like it to go work somewhere else.
Don't waste your time here - turnover rate is constant and for good reason.less
learned a lot in the electrical field, enjoyed building customer relations, got good hands-on experience in oil and gas related fields
poor management - constantly lied to - no basic morals or ethics

They do not hesitate to show their appreciation to good employees. Promotion is the practice for those with great work ethic and ability. While the pay is not competitive, the job security is very strong for those who want to work and be invested invested in their jobs. Benefits are average.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Moore, OK – July 6, 2018
It’s a good job but you don’t have a lot of support by upper management but they left me alone. They don’t give raises or reviews like they say they do. The pay isn’t good for what you do for the company and the want the managers to be at store open to close.
Working for Elliott Electric Supply was a great job. It was a great environment to work in with helpful people. I did not work closely with others in the credit department because of my position. I submitted invoices electronically and manually through 3rd party portals and reconciled the customer accounts I submitted invoices for.
