Order Picker (Former Employee) – Rhinelander, WI – February 25, 2018
Overworked && no help. Not my job...not my problem attitude. Management is horrible...little help from him. Only priority manager has is him && looking good .. so to hire help is not happening just work present empoyees harder & longer. Large employee turn over, lots of coming && going so means alot of people clueless..
Long hours && not knowing what time you will be home
Delivery driver (Former Employee) – Plover, WI – January 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.
Customers and trucks used, other coworkers awesome
Too much heavy lifting expected, pay too low for work expected
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – South Saint Paul, MN – November 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.
N/A (Former Employee) – La Crosse, WI – July 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.
Corporate (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – April 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.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Oak Creek, WI – April 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.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Minnesota – July 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.

Warehouse Manager (Former Employee) – Eau Claire, WI – June 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.
