Senior Sourcing Specialist (Current Employee) – Lincolnshire, IL – July 21, 2018
Too many full time jobs going overseas & part time only. Endless reorganization and job loss to tenured employees. Employees forced to take pay cuts to keep their jobs. In recent years, Closed many US and Canadian locations, from coast to coast. Benefits and pay better than competition. Beautiful Headquarters building, with many amenities.

*Typical day involves servicing accounts. *I've learned to manage client inventories. *Management is supportive. *Workplace culture is typical for a corporate, publicly traded company. *The hardest part of the job is navigating the vast cyber world of Grainger. *The most enjoyable part is operating autonomously and being recognized for a job well done.

Benefits and pay are great. But the feeling of being replaceable is there. It is hard to move up sometimes and reorganization happens often. Sometimes take steps backward instead of learning from past mistakes on process management.

Grainger is a great place to work. Everyone has the same goals and we get the job done. Must be able to work a flexible schedule, Saturdays are required 2-4 times per year. • Early morning start times are required, as early as 5:00AM. • Must be able to stay late or work overtime as requested. • The work requires repetitive arm, hand, and finger movements. • The work requires sitting at a mail extraction machine or desk for lengthy periods of time. • Moving mail trays will require light lifting (less than 10lbs). • Heavy volume days require the ability to work in a fast paced environment. • The work requires PC interaction for lengthy periods of time.

Decent pay if you stay for a couple years. Benefits are great. Hours are questionable depending on your position. Also depending on your position will determine if you are a life time, part time employee or full time employee.
HR Manager (Current Employee) – Lake Forest, IL – July 15, 2018
Grainger provides awesome opportunities for growth and development. Every team member lives by the mission, vision, and values. Overall, the management is the absolutely best in terms of creating a culture where team members can thrive. I've learned how to excel in my field, how to lead people, how to influence without authority, and be a consultative coach while at Grainger. Work/life balance is a struggle- Grainger demands a lot from team members, especially the hard working, dedicated ones. The organization is 100% focused on customers and team members. Overall, one of the best places to ever work!

I could of use more hands on training with a one on one person at different time to help with my advancement in the company. Need more team effort at my location in Alsip, seems to be a problem with team work. The branch manager is about team work and is working on improving this issue.

Grainger industrial is the greatest company you can work for. They provided me with all the tools to succeed and provided options to move up. They care for their employees and surround you with goal driven, kind, people.
I worked there for 21 years. I advanced quickly, and was on the safety committee, and I was a trainer. I was trained on many jobs and could do most any job there. I helped make many changes that helped the company.
Working for Grainger was a learning experience. While I greatly enjoyed my position and my customers, I feel direct management lacked the proper skills to manage a team of account managers. I did not feel that I was given a fair opportunity to succeed and was constantly being threatened by the loss of my job. While I do feel I had great support from my team members, I do not feel I had the support or guidance from direct manager.
I do believe I could have done really well in my position if I would have been given a real opportunity.
