Machine picker in Southaven, MS
on November 30, 2022

The managers expect too much of the employees and we never had a guaranteed time to go home. There was no work and home balance. My job was actually enjoyable until I had a supervisor who was overly controlling over a team that was already doing fantastic. The management doesn't see that she drove many employees away and ruined one of the best teams at Grainger.

For National Accounts there is a panel interview at the corporate offices. Generally National Account positions are looked to first from their internal "bench", as promotions. During this panel interview, they required a "sales pitch" which should incorporate value based selling, including customer value proposition, conversation, and negotiating.
