Wouldn't recommend to a friend or family member
Delivery driver (Former Employee) –  Plover, WIJanuary 3, 2018
Worked many years for them. I was underpaid for the amount of work you were expected to perform. Many times a helper should have been utilized. Dealing with the customers was the positive side of the job. They have many wonderful customers. Management fails to adopt policies that would get drivers on their routes earlier and home earlier. The other high point of the job is the leased equipment (truck) which was very good.
Pros
Customers and trucks used, other coworkers awesome
Cons
Too much heavy lifting expected, pay too low for work expected

Fast paced and fun
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  South Saint Paul, MNNovember 19, 2017
In my position, I started at 5am and worked until 3pm at times. Worked until the job was done. I filled orders and stocked merchandise onto the shelves. The manager at that time was new and was hired because he knew the building manager. At that time it was fun, but there was no room for advancement within the company.

Awful work experience
N/A (Former Employee) –  La Crosse, WIJuly 28, 2017
Personally, there is nothing good to say about working for this company. Worst work experience of my life. Owners treat people like they are less than them. Management is terrible. No training and you are expected to know the awful 80's computer system. IT is extremely rude(yes you are a bother to ask for assistance) Plus side- 2 nice people work there. Benefits are mediocre at best. I would honestly rather work anywhere else.

Disturbingly bad
Corporate (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIApril 28, 2017
They promise a lot, but don't deliver. Good people are leaving or have left the company. New managers and supervisors are clueless and make questionable decisions. My job training was terrible and had very little help in my department. It's a do more with less culture. People aren't happy in their jobs and it show in the office atmosphere. You have to be careful with what you say and who you say it to. There is a lot of talk behind peoples backs. I started looking for a new job after 6 months.
Pros
None
Cons
Insurance, management, training

Beware
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Oak Creek, WIApril 2, 2017
Co-workers were nice and helpful, but management need help with communication on how to do your job. Sales Reps also have an issue with guarantees to customers about their product and the driver will get the blunt end of the stick, when you show to the jobsite. Many customers don't like dealing with First Supply.
Pros
dealing with customers
Cons
Bad/no communication, no structure to management

Run away fast
accounting/office clerical (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIDecember 26, 2016
Newer mgmt. in place, nice on the outside but have no clue on how to properly make changes to better the workplace. Some co-workers should have been fired for bad mouthing other employees long ago.

There is a reason on why 2 people before and now 1 person immediately after me is gone in same dept. and attempting to hire another person again and again and again
Pros
pay
Cons
poor purchasing/accounting system, everything else as well

Fair benefits with generous PTO
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  MinnesotaJuly 16, 2016
Lazy supervisors will expect you to perform at high level for low pay with no training while they goof off half the day. Almost zero opportunity to advance unless you have a degree. "Glass ceiling" pay scales.
Pros
Generous PTO, varied job duties.
Cons
Low pay, short or no lunch breaks.

Not a good place to work
Warehouse Manager (Former Employee) –  Eau Claire, WIJune 26, 2015
Big time micromanagement in the upper management. No real leadership in upper management. Very tight and restrictive to any kind of change or process variation. No moral at all. Never worked at a more beaten down place of work. zero moral, zero incentive and the warehouse is way underpaid for the work they do. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. If you want a job, it's a job. But you will hate the environment and be looking for something soon after you arrive.
