This is a great place to work. If you don't mind hard work
Order Picker (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – January 17, 2019
I worked here for a little over eight months. It's a great place to work. They will teach you all the ins and outs of the job and help you move up if you choose to make a career out this job. The company is wide and well known so you can relocate easily. They are very flexible and willing to help work around your school schedule. It is just a warehouse job but if you stick around and work hard you can rise up quickly and make a good living in just a few short years. There will be times however when orders are high and you have to work late or move very heavy appliances onto a truck repeatedly through out your shift. It's a very physically demanding job.
Good pay. Promote from within. Easy to move up. Many different job opportunities
I downloaded several daily reports that had to be tweaked and then uploaded and sent out to various branches in our districts. These were on a time limit deadline daily. Also, several monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly and bi-annual reports. These were all in Excel and Access. I have gained more knowledge regarding Microsoft Access and a few more tips about Excel. Management is easy to get along with and are family focused. They try to have a lot of team time and team building activities. I enjoy my co-workers as we try to be there for one another both at work and in personal areas of our lives.
Learning new skills, flexibility with lunch times
computer speeds slow and lock up or throw you completely out often

this place is very busy and there is a lot of work to do, but this company knows how to take care of their employees. with that being said they celebrate birthdays, holidays, etc to the max. every moment they get they try to give back to the employees.

Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Danville, VA – January 13, 2019
Worked there 8 months and was fired for putting in a notice after being sent out constantly when business slowed . Don't know about office but if you are a driver I wouldn't waste my time. Very high turnover and blamed for everything wrong . I'm writing this cause I saw job open again so my replacement must have already left just 2 months. Run run run ... if u do go don't give notice u will be fired. U catch it from customers and the warehouse.
Good place to work depending on Manager and Location
Credit Manager/Accounts Receivable (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – January 6, 2019
The workplace culture is different depending on each location and depending on the job. The job load can be quite stressful due to the workload being very heavy due to a push for lean processes and environment. Lean processes are needed for any company, however it is not more important than sacrificing customer service.
Stable company, alot of good people work for Ferguson
Very heavy workload, different layers of management creates a micromanaging environment, Very long hours
Great work experience. I enjoyed working in the Warehouse at my own pace. It was hard work but it was fun. There is a lot of responsibility that you must have over the products and orders. I wish i could have stayed but it was a more career oriented job and i needed to prioritize my education.
C.S./Counter & Inside Sales (Current Employee) – Tacoma, WA – January 3, 2019
Have to beg to get raises and even then you get put off for months and then only a 3% cost of living raise. Unless you have a connection with someone in power you will not be considered for a promotion.
Great promotion potential for those willing to relocate
Regional Product Specialist III - Midwest (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 2, 2019
Much like my time at HD Supply, Ferguson intended to capitalize on products lines and markets acquired with their growth. A very similar effort was made to expand HDPE into other markets and industries that Ferguson was not in. Ultimately, the focus of the HDPE product line was diminished to a more narrow offering.
Great benefits, terrible staff, terrible management. Manditory 50+ hours a week for hourly and salary employees. If you're not one of the "good ole boys" or bonking a manager, it is nearly impossible to move up in the company.
Benefits, Lots of free lunches, friendly customers.
dock stocker (Former Employee) – Richland WA. – December 21, 2018
I only worked there a year but it was fast paced some days and slow others.I learned a clot about there computers. Lots of warehouse stuff. The management was good. Workplace culture was fun at first. My hardest part of the job was working with my boss.He fixed things himself instead of showing me how to do it.The people i worked with.

E-Commerce & Private Label Sales Specialist (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – December 19, 2018
A typical day at work involves dealing with customers that are generally not very organized which puts them in a hurry to get the materials they need. That is probably the hardest part of the job. The best part would be the associates. For the most part everyone gets along and contribute to a healthy work atmosphere.
